Benghazi: McCain essentially says “what does it matter now?”

If it weren’t for the old ladies of the GOP, you might get some answers to some very compelling and yet unanswered questions as well as force this administration to be transparant.

But then there’s McCain and the continued capitulation of the GOP:

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said Thursday that the White House’s response to his and other Republican senators’ questions on the September attack in Benghazi, Libya was satisfactory. The senior Arizona senator said he is now ready to find a way to end the filibuster that is holding up the confirmation vote for defense secretary nominee Chuck Hagel, CNN reported.

“I think it was an adequate response, yes,” McCain said. “We are working on and having negotiations now trying to smooth this thing out and get it done.”

Yes, that’s right, nothing to see here, move along now, move along.

The Great and Powerful John McCain (I will celebrate when this yahoo shuffles off to retirement) has decided that Beghazi is over and we must, must have an incompetent buffoon for Sec. of Defense.


Parodies that write themselves come in the guise of our politicians.

  • Two…two…TWO outrages in one…!!!
    Thanks, McAnus.  What a miserable failure of a man.

    • McAnus?

      • Not much of a reach really.  You can’t see that?
        or are you implying we should continue to forgive McCain’s idiocies and conservative betrayals again and again and again because of his service to the country?

        • Thought you meant McQ!

          • not impossible I suppose, but not in this case.
            My question was did you not get how McAnus is derived from McCain, or should we not EVER be critical of him because his life was assuredly hell in the Hanoi Hilton?

  • I wonder if his room at the Hanoi Hilton is available ?

  • McCain’s military service aside, he is emblematic of the losers we continue to elect. Most likely, because the really capable
    people in our society do not seek office as it would be serious downgrade from a life of accomplishment.

    • Agreed.  The problem is that he has power behind him for as long as he remains in office.  These RINOs need to go, but it looks like they will remain until they help destroy what’s left of the rule of law in this country.

      • The real problem, as I have come to realize it, is that these “RINOs” make up far more of the party than anybody really wants to admit.
        Think about it.  When Reagan tried to get the nomination in 1976, he had to embrace Richard Schweiker (R-PA) (a RINO by today’s standards) as his VP, in order to get the party to even take him seriously.
        Nixon considered himself a “liberal Republican.”  He kept many conservatives around him, but is know to have made more than one disparaging comments about conservatives in the Republican party.
        Both Bushs were hardly conservative (but not progressive enough to be in the Democrat party).

  • Head on over to and check out WHI update.  Yes, McCain is weak, but they are getting a lot of pressure to drop Benghazi (or else!).

  • Drives home that the media is a critical institution. You can see how Abu Ghraib could be front page for MONTHS or the attorney general firings were a hullaboo for weeks, but Benghazi, arguably a larger scandal than Abu Ghraib disappeared from the front pages pretty fast.
    (When Abu Ghraib made the paper, the military was already investigating it, and the photos only came out when the defense team leaked them…and they really only were titillating and did not add much.)

    • Heh, how many days on the FRONT PAGE of the New York Times?  Wasn’t it like, a solid month?

    • It’s no different from one of the major headlines now.  Out of all the main news networks and even many newspapers, the only source that mentioned the particular party of former San Diego Mayor who gambled away just over $2 BILLION dollars was FOX News.  Everyone else simply pointed out that she was an ex-mayor, but did not mention she is a Democrat.  Had she been a Republican, it would have been the first word they used.
      There is a good reason that Benghazi – like “Fast and Furious” – is no longer news.  First of all, the news has more important things to attempt to do, like push Obama’s anti-gun policies for him.  Second, anything the media can do to help Americans forget about the travesties created by the man in the White House is what they will do.
      The media in America has not presented real, unbiased news in YEARS.  Then again, all we need to do is look to see who OWNS these news bureaus and the answer becomes crystal clear.

  • McCain believes that the White House response was “satisfactory.”  Really?
    I am SO sick and tired of these RINOS who continue to allow Obama and his Marxist staff to do whatever they want to do.
    We NOW know that the man who holds the highest office in the land was completely AWOL during the time the consulate in Benghazi was under attack, leaving AMERICANS dead!
    Apparently, that’s FINE with McCain, et al, but it would NOT have been if a GOP man was sitting in the White House.
    In EITHER case, Obama needs to be held responsible for his completely LACK of leadership and the reality that he abandoned his responsibilities on that night.
    I KNEW McCain would do this.  He’s all hot air…

    • I wish John would realize that if this President had been overseeing the country during McCain’s stay in Hanoi, an occasionally discussed topic would be prisoners like….”John McWho?” that were being ‘entertained’ by the North Vietnamese.

  • The Great and Powerful John McCain (I will celebrate when this yahoo shuffles off to retirement) has decided that Beghazi is over and we must, must have an incompetent buffoon for Sec. of Defense

    >>> I agree actually. Obama deserves to have the incompetent he wants for his cabinet. Let it burn applies to all areas.

  • JOHN MCCAIN: I’m asking you, do you care– I– I’m– I’m asking you, do you care whether four Americans died? Or do you– the reasons for that? And– and shouldn’t pe– people be held accountable for the fact that four Americans died–
    DAVID GREGORY: Well, what you said was the cover-up–
    DAVID GREGORY: A cover-up of what?
    JOHN MCCAIN: Of the information– concerning the deaths of four brave Americans. The information has not been forthcoming. You can obviously believe that it has. I know that it hasn’t. And I’ll be glad to send you a list of the questions that have not been answered, including what did the president do and who did he talk to the night of the attack on Benghazi?
    And why was it? Why was it that we– that the f– the people who were evacuated from the– from the consulate the next day were not interviewed the next day. And then they would’ve known that it was not a spontaneous demonstration. Why did the president for two weeks, for two weeks during the heat of the campaign continue to say he didn’t know whether it was a terrorist attack or not?
    Is it because it interfered with the line of Al Qaeda has decimated? And everything’s fine in that– in that part of the world? Maybe. We don’t know. But we need the answers. Then we’ll reach conclusions. But we have not received the answers. And that’s a fact.

    • Politico: “By reversing himself, McCain effectively sacrificed his own credibility”

      Oh PLEASE. Hagel is bar-none, the worst nominee for Sec Def in at least a quarter century. If he is so apparently bad in confirmation, who in their right mind would think he is going to be any better as Dec Def ? They might as well just nominate Clint Eastwood’s “empty chair,” who would probably be more effective.

      This round of Obama nominations has lowered the bar so low that any “empty suit” is now qualified for virtually any cabinet post.

      The irony of ironies is having John Kerry, a known violator of the Logan Act (18 U.S.C.A. § 953 [1948]) during the VietNam war, as the point person for determining who may violate the Logan Act in the future.
