Lindsay Graham: "You've Hijacked Him!"
Senator John McCain, whom the left likes to portray as a "maverick", went on CBS' This Morning lamenting how all the scandals facing the Obama White House are damaging the President's "credibility", and encouraging him to put them behind him so he can lead on all of the problems facing the country.
Really, Senator McCain? A little news flash for you here. Most of the problems facing the country are the result of this President's so-called "leadership" and his policies!
John McCain is now the poster-child for what is wrong in Washington, D.C. The senior Senator is now openly advocating for what is arguably the most corrupt administration in this nation's history. While Nixon, with all of his paranoia, wished to use the IRS against his political enemies, the Obama administration has actually used them, along with the EPA, the Department of Justice, and who knows what else.
Numerous Obama appointees and cabinet members have either stonewalled or perjured themselves before Congress in administration scandals ranging from the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal, to The IRS and Benghazi. In addition Obama his self has lied directly to the American people time and again, confident that the media won't call him on them. His promise to the American people before his first election victory, that he would not have lobbyists anywhere near his administration lasted exactly three days. The media reaction? No big deal.
Obama's lies to American's on ObamaCare are numerous:
Obama claimed numerous times to the media and in campaign events that he did not support single payer (socialized) health care or destroying private health insurance. Yet in this interview [ Video ] , which the media conveniently hid from the American people, Obama clearly states that he intends to ultimately destroy private health insurance, and that a single payer system be put in place in 10 to 20 years.
Obama and the media also skewered Sarah Palin and others for exposing the existence of death panels in the ObamaCare bill, calling them conspiracy nuts and worse. Yet, when Paul Krugman admitted [Video] that these panels do, in fact, exist within the legislation, the media response was silence.
Obama also said that ObamaCare was not a tax increase, correcting George Stephanopolous on national TV, saying "that's just not true, George", Yet, when the Obama administration lawyers argued the Constitutionality of ObamaCare before the Supreme Court, that is exactly what the argued it was, and a 5-4 Supreme Court split of the court outrageously agreed that it is a tax increase, and thus constitutional.
Now we have AP wiretaps, Benghazi, and the IRS and EPA scandals, and Obama Administration persons are lying and perjuring themselves all over the place. In comes John McCain to Obama's rescue.
Even McCain stalwart Lindsay Graham is flummoxed by MeCain's cozy new relationship with the liar-in-chief, saying “I’m getting nervous,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), McCain’s closest friend in the Senate. “I told Denis McDonough, ‘I don’t know what you’ve done: You’ve hijacked him.’”
McCain is up for reelection in 2014. Let's make sure he is defeated in the primary. It's well past time that this Benedict Arnold to conservatives and the Constitution be put out to pasture.
