McCain: Don´t count Obama out
The Hill (Washington, D. C.), by Rebecca Shabad

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 12/30/2013 1:29:33 PM

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) says people shouldn´t underestimate President Obama as he heads into his sixth year in the White House. He discounted Obama´s low approval ratings and said a sitting president always has influence. "We all wear thin with the American people after a while," McCain told the Associated Press. "To count a man of that talent out at this point in time in his administration would be a huge mistake," he added. McCain has had his up-and-downs in his relationship with Obama, his foe during the 2008 presidential campaign. He met with Obama this year to discuss immigration reform, but was a vocal

This is the same jackass that during the Presidential campaign wouldn´t pronounce obama´s middle name and also told us we have nothing to fear from an obama Presidency that he was "a decent person and a person you do not have to be scared of as president of the United States."What a complete utter disaster obama´s Presidency has been and what an old fool McCain remains!

As long as Øvomit has the entire MSM on his side, and so many of the low-information voters get their "news" solely from the MSM, Øvomit will NEVER be held to the same standard as any president in history.

If Bush had done 1/1,000,000 of the damage to this country that Øvomit has done, the MSM would have crucified him many times over by now.

But Øvomit will continue to get passes from the MSM. And, if needed, they will make him sound like the new messiah again in a heartbeat...

How frightening to consider that back in 2008, McCain evolved as our only alternative to Obama.

Bottom line: What sinking ship did we want to get on?

Just two of many reasons the GOP was "crushed" on November 4, 2008, by a landslide margin of 9,550,193 votes:

Exhibit "A":
"I have to tell you. Senator Obama is a decent person and a person you don´t have to be scared of as President of The United States."
John Sydney McCain III
October 10, 2008

Exhibit "B":
"I have great respect for Al Gore."

McCain spent too much time in the Navy, where he saw real leadership, character, and hard work.

Is it possible that McCain ever considers his comments before he opens his mouth? The correct thing for a strong loyal opposition to say is that Obama´s policies, lack of experience and arrogance have the potential to unify Republicans and replace a left leaning statist form of government with one that is more in tune with the electorate.

Much of Obama´s success is because everybody underestimates him. Obama beat Hillery Clinton, John McCain, and Mitt Romney. How many people saw that coming? His campaigns raised huge amounts of money. Lefty sources became more active with Obama. Big business foolishly thinks they can buy him off. His gang is very organized. Obama doesn´t play by any set of established rules. McCain and Romney (and Hillery) played the part of the gentleman boxer to Obama´s cheapshot boxer. The gentleman boxer always loses. Obama is protected by the media, the dems, and some pubbies. Obama uses race to club his opponents into silence. All that together makes Obama formidable. Obama is probably one of the most ruthless American politicians ever.

McCain is right for once. Wonder if he will follow his own advice. Doubtful.

Land Management: A Chinese solar farm that fries birds is OK, as is redrawing tortoise habitat boundaries to benefit political donors. But an American rancher grazing his cattle brings feds with sniper rifles. It appears Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy has, at least temporarily, wonhis "range war" with the paramilitary wing of the Bureau of Land Management. Fearing another Waco, BLM has announced it will no longer enforce a court order and stop stealing Bundy´s cows, called "trespass cattle" by the feds, accused of grazing free on part of the 84% of Nevada that is federal property.

Since taking office in 2009, President Barack Obama has formally proposed a total of 442 tax increases, according to an Americans for Tax Reform analysis of Obama administration budgets for fiscal years 2010 through 2015. The 442 total proposed tax increases does not include the 20 tax increases Obama signed into law as part of Obamacare. "History tells us what Obama was able to do. This list reminds us of what Obama wanted to do," said Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform. The number of proposed tax increases per year is as follows: •79 tax increases for FY 2010 •52 tax increases for

It increasingly looks as if the Republicans will regain control of Congress this fall, with the GOP narrowly winning back a majority in the Senate and the House GOP either retaining or slightly building on its majority. But will the two top Republican leaders – House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell -- be around to enjoy the spoils of victory? Both Boehner of Ohio and McConnell of Kentucky are crafty and highly resilient veterans who would be difficult for their opponents to bring down even under the best of circumstances. Yet McConnell is facing arguably one

Russia’s military carried out a flight test of a new multi-warhead intercontinental ballistic missile on Monday amid growing tensions with the United States over the crisis in Ukraine. The SS-27 Mod 2 road-mobile ICBM was launched around 2:40 a.m. EST from Russia’s Plesetsk launch facility, located about 500 miles north of Moscow. “The main purpose of the launch is to validate the reliability of a batch of this class of missiles made at the Votkinsk Plant,” Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Yegorov told state-run Interfax-AVN. An unspecified number of simulated nuclear warheads landed at an impact range on the Kura test range on the

Climate change experts will today set out new plans for tackling global warming in the event that countries cannot reduce their carbon emissions in time. Dubbed ‘Plan B’ the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has looked at the possibility of sucking carbon dioxide out of the air and reflecting sunlight into space. The document is important because it will be used as scientific guidance for governments as they negotiate a new global climate pact, set to be adopted in 2015 However some environmental activists watching the talks in Berlin believe geoengineering should not be attempted. They worry that such technologies would be ineffective,

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

Last week she announced that she will step down, "ending a stormy five-year tenure marred by the disastrous rollout," as the Times now calls it. Maybe by this October we´ll be up to "catastrophic" or "calamitous." Last October this column argued that there was no reason for Sebelius to go.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving
