John McCain: America Was Better Off Under Obama

File this under “DUH.” The Guardian reports:

Senator John McCain, a prominent Republican voice on foreign policy, was visibly irked when asked by the Guardian what message Trump had sent to the United Kingdom, one of America’s most enduring allies.

“What do you think the message is? The message is that America doesn’t want to lead,” McCain said, while adding of the rest of the world: “They are not sure of American leadership, whether it be in Siberia or whether it be in Antarctica.”

Asked if America’s standing on the global stage was better under Barack Obama, McCain, a fervent critic of the previous administration’s foreign policy, responded: “As far as American leadership is concerned, yes.”

Trump’s defenders have cast his freewheeling approach to foreign policy as both the product of political naivete and as a following through on the “America first” platform he campaigned on.

    We would be worse off under Pence..

      Pence would get drummed out of office soon after Trump. He’s neck deep in the Flynn scandal.

        Both need to go, but after the midterms with Pelosi as Speaker.

  • Treant

    Oh, shut the fuck up. You’ll continue to vote for any piece of garbage your party puts up because you’re getting too fucking senile to listen to anybody but your appointed “assistants.”

    Without them, your statement read, “America was sandwich good but now I take poopy and nap.”

    • Ranger One

      McCain is a caged bitch, not a maverick. No diss on POWs.

  • Tawreos

    That’s nice John, shoot your mouth off for the cameras and then vote the way you are told to by the GOP when it comes time to put up or shut up.

  • OT- Meanwhile, the brilliantly orchestrated McConnell /White House coup to shove Trumpcare down the throats of the American people continues at breathtaking pace under the radar. Susan Collins reported, the most “centrist” Republican Senator had good things to say about the “plan” which no Democrat has seen — and which is being rammed through, with no committee hearings— and apparently with only Rand Paul in opposition. We might have this travesty of a health care plan passed by July 1 for a reconciliation with the House version. All it will take is 50 Senate votes (Pence will cast the tieing vote) — if it anywhere near resembles the House version —- for reconciliation approval. This is a major disaster in the making,. The Russiagate hearing events is one big, fat, diversion — that is going to cost millions of American lives in the next decade and make trillions in tax cuts for the super rich.

    • safari

      My understanding is we need to kill healthcare before the GOP can do their massive tax cuts for the wealthy.

      • Killing the ACA by itself is close to a trillion dollar tax cut.

        • Todd20036

          And we all know who mostly benefited from W’s trillion dollar tax cut that squandered Clinton’s surplus.

          • i really hate the “reasoning” behind the idea that it’s somehow a bad thing for the govt to have a surplus. i can’t even begin to think of the number of things that could’ve been used for, other than making the super rich richer for essentially doing nothing. if the govt has a surplus these days (and it would take a miracle for that to happen) it’s a sign that important programs are underfunded, not that the rich are paying too much in taxes. wow are they not, not even close. i don’t get why people defend pols with policy like that.

          • boatboy_srq

            I still don’t understand how it is that a government in significant debt, in years when it runs a surplus for that year, is somehow making money off the taxpayer. If the debt is the issue, pay it down with the surplus; if not then put the windfall to good use and STFU.

            Honestly. Republicans and budgeting.

    • Chucktech

      I just can’t wrap my head around this “Russiagate is a diversion” thing. I guess it’s just me, but my attention is certainly not “diverted” in the least little bit. Of course, we are talking about Americans, aren’t we? I swear, there’s no dumber populace on the face of the civilized western world than Americans.

    • billbear1961

      The obstruction of justice underway is a COUP against democracy in this country, an attempt to cover up collusion with a hostile foreign power, collusion which successfully SUBVERTED the 2016 election. It is NOT a “diversion.” If the coup is successful, this democracy is FINISHED.

      That demented crook and traitor may very well order Mueller FIRED, and the GOP Congress may do NOTHING about it. If so, we will be in an unprecedented constitutional CRISIS, facing the death–the DEATH–of this democratic REPUBLIC. There has been no crisis remotely like this, threatening the very SURVIVAL of our democracy, of the REPUBLIC, since the country’s CIVIL WAR.

      Now, we can’t just IGNORE that because, at the same time, the GANGSTERS in the GOP are about to deliver another huge BLOW to the ACA.

      There is no reason, whatsoever, why BOTH issues cannot be dealt with SIMULTANEOUSLY–except in a country where the fucking PRESS can’t or WON’T chew gum and walk at the same time, and the PUBLIC are just as HOPELESS!!

      I just fucking GIVE UP on this nation of CHILDREN!!

      • canoebum

        It’s not hopeless until they start cancelling elections. That’s when the real 2nd Amendment remedies kick in.

        • billbear1961

          They won’t cancel them–they will alter the counts.

          No investigations will be allowed–their henchmen on the courts will shut everything down and allow MANY to be deprived of their RIGHT to VOTE. (No one will fight long for that right, or any other right, in this nation of defeatists and cowards.)

          They–the regime, the GOP Congress–will commit more and more crimes right in front of our eyes and LAUGH in our faces if we DARE complain.

          FACTS will be swept aside, if we can even uncover any.

          The right-wing propaganda machine will continue to shill for them, to lie day and night, as unchallenged by the serious press and the Democrats as they are now.

          They will continue to loudly DENOUNCE standing up for the truth and fairness as an indication of BIAS–perhaps the single biggest lie ever told, because it is a fundamental attack on REASON itself–on the ability to reason, to think critically–and on GENUINE democracy.

          We no longer live in a country where objective facts matter if they displease the right.

          40% of the country doesn’t give a DAMN about the truth, freedom of the press, or the RULE OF LAW, as long as THEIR party is in charge harming the people they HATE.

          We were lost the day Fox came on the air and the serious press and the Democrats decided to do NOTHING to expose them for the LIARS and EXTREMISTS they are (leaving that VITAL civic DUTY to COMEDIANS!!).

          THAT was the beginning of the end–that kind of propaganda goes unchallenged in no other real democracy on this planet, only HERE.

          Despite all the DAMAGE the right-wing propaganda machine has done, the real press AND the Democrats STILL do almost NOTHING to expose and defang it.

          That is THE news story–THE greatest single, ongoing SCANDAL–of the past QUARTER CENTURY.

          That machine IS destroying this democracy.

          Until it is exposed and defanged, everything we try to accomplish will–like Obama’s legacy–be built on QUICKSAND.

        • Xiao Ai: The Social Gadfly

          HA! Like you’ll find a single Democrat supporting a Second Amendment remedy. And as long as Republicans can dupe their base, which is why DeVos is head of edumakshun, there will be no revolution, no civil war, nothing.

People bitched and moaned about how the Republican led House was a totally do nothing bunch, so what did the voters do? They gave them the Senate too ! and the white house…. a grand slam ! It’s not like the selfish, uncaring republicans hid their intention of destroying Obamacare, hell republicans screamed with joy every time one of their politicians yelled repeal Obamacare. No matter how many times you repeat ‘Voting matters’ too many voters don’t seem to get it or just don’t care, until it hits them, by which time it’s a little too late. We get the politicians we deserve, we get the government we deserve. So now it time to pay the piper !

        • Reality.Bites

          I imagine any lawyer’s advice would be along the lines of: make secure, off-site copies of anything pertaining to you that’s not classified and get out.

          The lawyer could also advise you on whether you can sit tight, or if you’re implicated enough that you should be seeking a deal with the special prosecutor.

  • billbear1961

    O/T:

    Interesting exchange on Political Wire (the first poster works on the Hill, I think. He said the gossip at work was that, a week before it happened, Rosenstein would appoint a Special Counsel):

    “What Trump should be worried about is DSG Deeben. Talked to a couple of people at work this morning, one who worked at the SG for 14 years. They all said the same thing: The only reason to tap Deeben is if Mueller is going to try and indict the President.”

    “Place your (educated) bet: Will or won’t trump fire Mueller?”

    “Yes, but not before it’s way too late. I don’t see Trump firing Mueller until Mueller has moved on an indictment request.”

    “And what do you see as the political fallout from such a move, inside the Beltway and out, if I may ask?”

    “Game over, basically.”

    I’m not sure why he thinks Trump will wait so long to order Mueller fired.

    • Reality.Bites

      My guess: whenever he fires him will be a disaster with political fallout. One’s inclination is to put off disasters even when postponing it is likely to make it a bigger disaster.

      • billbear1961

        That makes sense, but it would surprise me if Trump gave it that much thought.

        I suppose some of his henchmen might, but he doesn’t always listen to them.

        • Reality.Bites

          Well I picture the White House staff as like family members dealing with a relative who can still legally manage their own affairs, but really shouldn’t. There’s a lot of deflection, advice to go slow, etc. to try to prevent the not-legally-incompetent one from doing something disastrous.

          As you say, he doesn’t always listen to them, and of course they don’t speak with one voice. We’ve lived through less-than-stellar presidents before, but they had smarter people around them.

  • Bj Lincoln

    Breaking: SCOTUS has ruled 8-0 in Sessions v Morales-Santana. The decision by RBG concerned gender inequality in immigration laws. Current provisions made it easier for unwed mothers to pass on citizenship to their children than unwed fathers.
    RBGs opinion relied HEAVILY on Obergefell. And chief justice Roberts signed on to the opinion.
    Encouraging for future cases on trans rights and employment, housing, adoption, banking rights.
    Explicitly stated that our understanding of discrimination and gender evolves and SCOTUS can too https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/ea518b140892df391238f2605fe4f9f62f0080d3bbf912dab443994884aed9fc.jpg

      There’s a big BUT here….it means the rules for unwed mothers will be tightened to that of unwed fathers. Not the other way around (as I had initially—optimistically—expected). Short-term, foreign-born children of American mothers will suffer.

      • thom

        True.
        They reasoned that it is not in SCOTUS authority to relaxe Congress passed immigration laws.
        Equality between the genders was the only question on the table, even if the remedy was less than ideal.
        They also made it clear that Congress could (should?) revise the law to revert back to the statue that unwed mothers had, but include unwed fathers as well.
        Equality isn’t always pretty.

    • Jerry Kott

      Because it is their Game and they play by their rules ( they write them). We are just fill.

    O/T

    It looks like Sessions has changed his mind yet again and now wants to testify in PUBLIC tomorrow.

    “They are not sure of American leadership, whether it be in Siberia or whether it be in Antarctica.”

    I thought American leadership was in Moscow.

  • Galvestonian

    No shit, Sherlock _ I only wish that the rest of the boobs that pass for Republicans saw it that way, too.

    One last O/T because it is so absurd:

        There’s been a ton of strum and drang and what they have done has been abysmal but in terms of volume? nothing and next to nothing come to mind. The vast majority of it was Executive Orders and ratfvcking the federal depts with destroyers in the top seats and otherwise leaving vacancies.

      • Ningsisa

        I cant decide whether he’s just trolling and trying to get a rise out of his critics or if he’s so narcissistic and delusional that he believes it. I’ve suspected for some time he says outrageous things to make people upset, because he’s a bully

      • William

        Which was the president who died after a couple weeks in office?

  • Lazycrockett
    • Stephen Elliot Phillips

      What do we do?

      • The_Wretched

        Bombard your Senators’ offices and news media to cover the Senate AHCA plan.

    • The_Wretched

      I’m sad to say I was fully expecting this turn of events about a month ago. I think I even said that I was a future likelihood that I was hoping to be wrong about predicting.

    • ok, i called my 2 senators, Cassidy and Kennedy (Louisiana..). People on the phone were nice and polite. Not sure if this will make any difference, but at least i did it.

      • Lazycrockett

        From what Im hearing the calls to our reps have dwindled over the last couple of months and are now at pre election results levels.

      • William

        Hmm, Cruz and Cornyn. Yep.

  • JWC

    Oh Damn someone woke John up again

        Nothing really ever disappears off the internet anyways. Although allegedly there are ways of making it very hard for Google/Bing/Yahoo to find.

        • Jean-Marc in Canada

          Which is why I always screencap/mirror and store on a portable drive. As you say, the internet…she is forever.

        • BobSF_94117

          Produce Bush’s missing 3,000,000 emails and get back to me on “never disappearing”.

          🙂

  • JT

    For years, these fucking dirtbag Rethugs have done nothing except sabotage any attempt to do something for the good of the country. Now because their treachery is displayed clearly in the figure of monster Drumpf, they suddenly are worried about their own asses.

    • JWC

      they had 8 years to be constructive, their idea was to shoot down “all Obama” Now that its their ball game they are so totally unprepared

  • Dom Saunders

    In a moment of sanity, John McCain manages to tell us that water is wet. Oh no, wait, I mean that we were better off under Obama.

  • Todd Allis

    His defenders say he’s naive, as if that excuses The Fucking President.

    • Halou

      I thought naivete and inexperience was what the November-January transition period was for. So that the outgoing president and their staff can inform and educate the incoming president and their staff. That Trump chose not to pay attention to any of it is not the fault of the system.

  • WitlessProtection
    • JWC

      would anyone be upset if I don’r watch

      • didn’t he argue at his custody hearings that he was ‘just an entertainer’ and that he ‘didn’t really hold most of (what he says on the radio) seriously.” i seem to remember that, when the wife’s lawyers were demonstrating how unfit he is for children.

        • JWC

          whatever he may be or has said I still suffer fools lightly

        • The_Wretched

          That argument would work better for him if the crazy stayed on-air and wasn’t a regular feature of the rest of his life (which it is).

          • oh, i believe him (the court description). he’s never really off the air unless there are no cameras around, which is harder and harder to do these days. he’s very savvy in this way; he can successfully fool the rubes that he’s like them. i’m betting in truth he thinks of them with contempt because he knows it’s all bullshit and he made a lot of it up himself.

        • Natty Enquirer

          “Performance artist” was the term. Whatever. It’s bullshit all the way down.

        • Priya Lynn

          His lawyer argued that. Jones contradicted him and said the person he is on his show is who he really is.

          • William

            Ripping one’s shirt off and prancing around the courtroom takes care of that question.

        • William

          I’ve met him in person a few times. He’s whackadoodle.

    • Tomcat

      She better wear a tin foil hat.

  • Leo

    More leaks on that infamous leak from the man that hates leakers.

    • Dreaming Vertebrate

      The way Dumpf leaks, we can only hope there are no electric blankets in the White House. It would be terrible if he were electrocuted in his sleep. Terrible!!

      • Electric blankets and golden showers don’t mix well….

    • The_Wretched

      Here’s hoping Trumps malnonfeasance brings down BiBi too.

  • Nowhereman

    Captain Obvious sold his soul long long ago. After watching his weird performance at Comey’s hearing, I really wonder why he swings his legs out of bed in the morning.

  • danolgb

    He’s like Cloris Leachman’s character on Raising Hope who was mostly batshit crazy but had rare moments of lucidity.

  • Leo

    OT. 40 hours community service and a $385 fine. Fucking joke. Still has a congressional ethics complaint to deal with but doubt much will come from it.

    • Jean-Marc in Canada

      To be honest, was anyone really expecting an actual punishment?

  • Tempus Fuggit

    Naw shit…rily?

    Too little, too late John. Shuffle off to Senior City.

  • Beagle

    Gee, John, maybe you should run for political office so you can work to change things.
    Oh, wait….

  • That might mean something if it was followed up with action or even votes. McCain knows how to tell liberals something warm and fuzzy to cover for his far right voting record. I’m not impressed.

  • Canadian Observer

    Every time I see John McCain being quoted in a story, even those few times he is having “a moment of clarity”, I am tempted to change my mind about opposing term limits.

  • James

    Yeah, well, it’s partly his fault Trump is in power, so.

  • leastyebejudged

    lol, now that he’s proven himself to be a senile fool,rofl

  • -M-

    No duh.

  • bmoore4026

    My mom thinks of this man as Captain America, but I just don’t like him. I’m sorry he was tortured, but I don’t like him.

  • bkmn

    McLame had better watch out, he could find himself pushed in front of a moving vehicle ala House of Cards style.

    America was better off under Obama….’s last bowel movement!
