McCain Blasts Rand Paul’s Drone
Filibuster: ‘We Shouldn’t Be
Debating the Impossible Scenario’

Fox News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 3/8/2013 6:36:46 PM

Senator John McCain appeared on Friday’s Studio B and took Rand Paul to task for his 13-hour filibuster targeting the Obama administration’s policy on drones. “No one is going to be struck by a Hellfire missile from a drone that is not an enemy combatant. That’s just a fact,” McCain said. The senator believes Congress should be focusing on more important issues, including the massacre in Syria and North Korea’s potential nuclear arms capability. “That’s what we should be discussing. That’s what we should be debating. Not the impossible scenario.”

Comments:
All of this interview was unbearable. However, the worst part of it was when McCain had the audacity to say he was a Reagan Republican. He´s delusional if he thinks he´s a Reagan Republican and further delusional in saying that no one from our government would ever fire a drone in the United States. He doesn´t know the capabilities of the 0bama regime very well does he.

And we know that it won´t happen because we know that Obama always obeys the Constitution. Dream world. I don´t think McCain reads anything but the NYT. I guess I need to write him a love note.

Will someone please tell this loudmouth Obama loving Senator McCain that the use of armed drones in the United States by Obama is only impossible.... until... Obama in fact uses it.

A few years ago it was impossible to imagine that the U.S. government would give automatic guns to Mexican drug cartels...until the Obama government did just that.

If "no one is going to be struck by a Hellfire missle...", why be afraid to say so? When the income tax amendment was being debated they said it would never go over 7%. When someone suggested that be put into the amendment, they were told it wasn´t necessary as it would never go over the 7%. Less than 20 years later it was in the 70% range.

It seemed to be an impossible scenario until Holder kept squishing on his answers. Thereafter, what seemed impossible was his ability to admit that there are any constitutional limitations on the power of this president. Had this been a jury trial, the judge would have informed the witness that Rand Paul´s question called for a simple "yes" or "no" answer. The disturbing reality is that it took the President 13 hours of non-stop news coverage to throw in the towel on an obvious point of constitutional law, namely that life, liberty and property cannot be taken without Due Process.

If John McCain was as concerned about the problems in Syria and North Korea as Rand Paul was about the possibility of drone strikes in America, he would have held a 13-hour filibuster about those issues.

But can anyone imagine John McCain being able discuss anything for the length of thirteen minutes, let alone thirteen hours, except himself or the wacko-ness or wrongness of fellow Republicans he doesn´t agree with?

The men in the white coats are doing a great disservice to America and to John McCain himself by not intervening and taking him to a suitable treatment facility before he has a major public crack-up.

I know Sen McCain went to the Naval Academy, and can´t be stupid. I know he Was a war hero. I know he is probably an honorable man. But, somewhere along the way, the brains are deteriorating.

FTA: "No one is going to be struck by a Hellfire missile from a drone that is not an enemy combatant. " I don´t think Rand Paul was talking about enemy combatant drones.

McCain is just being McCain. He doesn´t get it. He never really did. There has always been something wrong, something out of sync, something slightly out of balance with him. It is time for him to fade away. Republicans like him are a luxury Americans can no longer afford, not when a highly organized, well-financed, media backed cabal of radical Leftists is laboring "to fundamentally transform the United States of America."

McCain thinks he is the "leader" of the Republican Party and thus cannot tolerate anyone taking the "media megaphone" (as he referenced Paul´s filibuster) when he should be the only one with the megaphone.
McCain´s naval career was not as "honorable" as it should have been----selling his POW peers for cheap, crashing many planes; his political career not so sterling----remember Keating 5; Anger and vindictive against GWB after 2000 election----blatantly so with his words and actions. He is long past his sell date.

The only black lawmaker in the U.S. Senate blasted Senate majority leader Harry Reid on Friday for comments suggesting Republican opposition to President Barack Obama is the result of racism. South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott, a Republican, called on the Nevada Democrat to apologize after saying during a radio interview on Friday that he hopes Republican opposition to Obama is “based on substance and not the fact that he’s African-American.” “I am sincerely disappointed by continued attempts to divide the American people by playing to the lowest common denominator,” Scott said.

Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev. (AP/J. Scott Applewhite) Last week, it was Harry Reid telling his Senate colleagues to "sit down and shut up."

These are only a couple of recent examples of the Nevada senator´s increasingly cranky querulousness.

Ending a war is a good thing. Killing civilians a bad thing. Deliberately targeting civilians is murder, and is never morally licit, even in pursuit of a good thing such as ending a war. The tens of thousands of Japanese non-combatants we killed 68 years ago this week with two nuclear bombs were not “collateral damage” of military strikes. They were the intended targets. We hoped that mass murder would bring the Japanese emperor to surrender. It worked, and American and Japanese soldiers’ lives were probably saved by it —

National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden extended his 15 minutes of fame Wednesday, as headlines tied his saga to President Barack Obama’s decision to cancel a planned summit meeting in Moscow next month with Russian President Vladimir Putin. But analysts said the talk of Snowden’s role in the cancellation obscured a more basic reality: The U.S.-Russia relationship is now so frosty that it didn’t appear the two presidents would actually accomplish enough to merit such a high-profile meeting. After four years, the much-vaunted reset in U.S.-Russian relations has devolved into a chilly standoff over issues like the Kremlin’s support for Syria

“IQ is a metric of such dubiousness that almost no serious educational researcher uses it anymore,” the Guardian’s Ana Marie Cox wrote back in May. It was a breathtakingly ignorant statement.

WASHINGTON—The White House announced that President Barack Obama will award the Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian award, to 16 recipients including television star and businesswoman Oprah Winfrey, legendary Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee and former President Bill Clinton. “The Presidential Medal of Freedom goes to men and women who have dedicated their own lives to enriching ours,” Mr. Obama said in a statement released by the White House. “This year’s honorees have been blessed with extraordinary talent, but what sets them apart is their gift for sharing that talent with the world.”
