McCain, Graham call Paul´s questions
on drones ´ridiculous, offensive´

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Ramsey Cox

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 3/7/2013 12:11:51 PM

Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) criticized Sen. Rand Paul’s (R-Ky.) argument that President Obama could use a drone attack against innocent U.S. citizens on American soil, as “simply ridiculous.” “To infer that the president is going to kill someone like Jane Fonda or someone who disagrees with him is simply ridiculous,” McCain said on the floor Thursday. “If someone is an enemy combatant that enemy combatant has no where to hid, not even in a café.” McCain was referring comments Paul made during his more than 12 hour talking filibuster on Wednesday.

You´re going to need both duct tape and blood pressure meds for this one! These two make me so angry I could just spit! They are doing more to destroy this party than 0bama. McConnell was on Laura Ingraham´s show and would not condemn McPain or Graham. It´s just outrageous.

Excuse us? This ´president´ has already claimed the right to kill Americans *abroad*, including children - without due process, and with impunity.

Any ´elected official´ who doesn´t see a problem with this - and the joke of a Justice Department colluding with it - doesn´t need to be in public office. Period.

I´ve done my best to defend these two because I´m a solid Republican. No more—those days are over and what they had to say and the pathetic riot act they attempted is the bottom of the barrel.

My response? Thank you, Rand. You did good—real good. You made America proud and made a lot of hearts soar with hope. And then we have McCain and Graham just finishing with dinner hosted by the lying monster. Both went after Rand... time to say bye bye to both of them. I´ve had enough of their limp BS. And I heard from a lot of people this morning who are also standing solidly in your corner. Way to go and thank you Senator Paul.

There was a time years ago I had some repect for McCain and his B-buddy Graham. Now I find I despise them both. They spend all their time jerking each others egos and calling it being "statemen". The reality is they speak for very few Americans outside or inside their home states. As they have no loyality to anyone but themselves Democrats can relate to and "work" with them.

All that goes into saying "I stand with Rand" is alien to them.

You may not like Governor Palin #17 but that reason cannot be it. She extended the absolute minimum courtesy to McCain because he had chosen her the election cycle before. If this is your criteria for a Republican to be utterly dismissed and no longer credible, then there is a long list of Republicans who should not be in office. Remember W supported that creep Arlen Specter. McCain and Graham are total media whores. They are just jealous.

What in the world is this goofy McCain-Graham axis we are seeing all the time? I wonder if it is starting to emit gravity? I smell another "Gang" of some weight coming out of it. As diametrically opposed as the US political houses are, the season is ripe for such a connivance to form.

Not that I believe there will be any good come of it- but, certainly, if such a thing were to form, it would change everything. I would also believe, if it did form, Øbama and Valery would be very shaken up over it. That alone would please me.

Lest anyone doubt that Establishment RINOs are part of the problem. We must shed the Country Club albatross from our neck. We´ve tried in 1952, 1964, 1976, 1980, and 2012 to reform the party from within - with marginal short-term success and zero long-term success. A new party remains our "least-bad" option. Yes, the Dems will win the next few elections - what´s the difference? However, if elected GOP conservatives switch parties, we will not start from zero as the failed Perot effort did. Send the GOP the way of the Whigs. New party.

"All I can say is I don’t think that what happened yesterday was helpful for the American people," McCain said.

McCain, you are absolutely wrong. Rand stood up for America, something you have forgotten how to do long, long ago. You and Graham are two curmudgeons that need to go. Shady Pines has two beds ready for both of you.

Those two have seen the future and it is not them. They have no choice but to diminish Senator Paul´s actions.
I have a theory about Sen. McCain. With all due respect to his service and his time as a POW, I think those years in captivity have caused him to be an appeaser. I don´t blame him. God knows you do what you have to do to survive. And I´m glad he did. But it does not play well in politics. I have no idea what Graham´s excuse might be.

What McCain said about obama in 2008, "But, I have to tell you, he is a decent person, and a person that you do not have to be scared as President of the United States." Obama couldn´t have bought a better endorsement - from the opposing candidate, no less.

Now, both of these RINO senators feel entitled to spew their baloney at will, but they have little tolerance for upstarts like Paul and Cruz. When are their constituents going to show them the door?

´´This president is not going to use a drone against an innocent person sitting at a café because it would be illegal,´´ Graham said Thursday. ´´It would be murder.´´

But not this President. Or this Attorney General. Oh, wait...

If you said to me some time before February 27, 1993 that the United States Government would launch an armed assault against otherwise peaceable men, women and children under false pretenses, ultimately resulting in the deaths of 82 souls, I probably would have called such a claim "ridiculous" and/or "offensive."

If you said to me on April 21, 2000 that the US Government would forcibly enter a home under force of arms in the darkest hours of the morning to short-circuit the legal process and snatch a child whose mother perished in the effort to deliver her child from Communist oppression to freedom on our shores, maybe, even then I would have called such a claim "ridiculous" or "offensive."

However, with experience comes wisdom, the wisdom that our Founders so wisely wielded when they warned us of the tendency for governments to descend into tyranny. So they set forth the means to prevent such tyranny and, ultimately, ensure the means to take arms to throw off its shackles.

So, here we have a United States Senator asking the most simple of questions of the executive branch, does President of the United States believe he has the power to assassinate a US citizen on US soil if that citizen does not present an immediate and credible threat to the lives of others? Pretty simple question that any self-professed "constitutional scholar" should be able to answer succinctly.

Instead, no substantive response comes forth. Instead we have the political elites - so sure in their peers´ righteousness and wisdom, and so full of contempt for the people they claim to represent - decrying such a question as "ridiculous, offensive."

So, the "answer" I we are now confronted with is the worst fears of our Founders have come to fruition.

I wonder if McCain realizes there are other choices besides being taken prisoner. It is perfectly honorable to put up a fight. Or would he have us all to lie down and surrender to the will of The One?

McCain and Graham would have been smart to jump on the Rand Paul bandwagon instead of trying to flatten its tires. These 2 seriously don´t know their constituents, and deserve to be thrown out of office.

Rand Paul did us proud, and I challenge McCain and Graham to address his concerns legitimately, using the Constitution, to inform us as to where it gives a president the power to assassinate any one of us he sees fit.

There is hardly a worse image possible than that of McCain and Graham "dining" with Obama, in some fancy-schmancy hotel, no doubt by candlelight, as they were wooed by the Marxist...

...while at precisely the same moment, Rand Paul was heroically holding forth on the Senate floor with only a few Snickers bars to keep him going.

So, dear Senators McCain & Graham:
Your lunch (or dinner as the case may be) has now officially been eaten ... by Rand Paul.

The liberal MSM is so anti-Republican that Rand Paul had to conduct a 13-hour filibuster to get media coverage for his anti-drone message.

Yet John McCain and Lindsay Graham are also so anti-Republican that all they had to do was stand there for a few minutes before the MSM sought out what they knew would be their scornful statements about Rand Paul.

Now it should be, Once more unto the breach! for Senator Paul, Senator Cruz, and other Republicans willing to stand up for Constitutional principles. Let the filibusters continue!

McCain and Graham are examples of what is wrong with the Republican party. There are plenty of others. Just about all the top names, including the recently defeated "Obama is a nice guy" Republican presidential candidate.

The best to be said about the Republican dinosaurs is that they are dinosaurs. They mean well. They don´t realize that circumstances have changed. They are playing by the old rules with an adversary whose only rule is winning by any means possible.

McCain &Co. are in denial. They cannot or will not see that they are dealing with radicals and extremists for whom nothing is off limits. There is nothing in the least ridiculous or offensive in the concerns Rand Paul is trying to raise.

McCain and Graham and Boehner and Romney are part of the problem, not part of the solution. The sooner they make way for a team that is able and willing to defend the republic and the American way of life, the better. It will not defend itself, not from the likes of Obama and his cronies. The time calls for champions, heroes, heroines, politicians with the courage of their convictions who are able to recognize enemies of freedom and American values.

From what we know that is publically printed by news outlets and bloggers,etc,Just imagine what it must be like in their Repub. caucuses. There seems to be a calculated scenario that all the entrenched R. Senators are following and then the ones we know about, who are not.

But,unless and until the TEA Party types speak out,the "entrenched" seem like they will prevail. As for mccain and graham, they do what they do because they can.

McCain and Graham are precisely what´s wrong with the Republican Party. The fact that they have their panties in a wad over Mr. Rand´s good showing should tell you everything you need to know. They were sent out to protect the ruling class. They tried to stamp out the fire the Tea Party ignited and can´t have it flaring up again. They are losing control and that just can´t be allowed to happen. It is and always has been about power for them. They are self-serving power mongers and it is time for them to go.

Congress needs to care more about the will of the people instead of hanging on to their office and its perks. Rand Paul seems to be one of the carers. McCain and Graham are poster boys for an outmoded GOP elite. They need to go along with Mitch McConnell.

In May of 2010 while operating in southern Helmand Province, Afghanistan, as an infantryman, I was attached to a unit that was employing a female engagement team to supplement their already robust outreach campaign to the local villagers of Marjah. While the Marines—or “lioness” team—did an admirable job, it was clear that their presence in the midst of an all-male infantry company currently involved in combat operations clearly restructured the dynamic on the ground. Lieutenant Colonel Robert Macginnis in his book Deadly Consequences: How Cowards are Pushing Women into Combat proposes that

There have been plenty of hearings already in which high-ranking intelligence officials have , backed by the same left-right coalition that nearly passed an amendment that would have reigned in the NSA’s surveillance scope on Wednesday.

Anthony Weiner, Eliot Spitzer and Bob Filner may have done horrible things to the women in their lives. But they do not represent a Democratic “war on women.” That charge has been leveled by conservative groups this after new revelations emerged about New York mayoral candidate Weiner’s “sexting” activity and San Diego mayor Filner’s sexual harassment charges. ShePAC sent an email to supporters claiming “Liberal men are leading a violent war on women” and “the real war on women is coming from the left.” And the National Republican Senatorial Committee wrote in a press release, “Democrats invoke the

Republicans have been bracing for a storm ever since President Obama tapped Thomas Perez, the liberal activist head of the Justice Department´s civil rights division, to replace Hilda Solis as Labor secretary. Labeling Perez a radical, polarizing figure, Republicans held up his nomination for four months, allowing it to move forward only on July 18 as part of a deal to prevent Senate Democrats from going nuclear and changing the chamber´s voting rules. Now employers and their GOP allies in Congress worry it´s payback time. During Solis´ tenure at Labor, the department focused most of its energy on writing

Union leaders are calling on Congress and President Obama to provide a federal bailout to the city of Detroit. The executive council of the AFL-CIO, the nation’s largest labor federation, called for an “immediate infusion of federal assistance for Detroit” to be matched by Michigan, which they say has not done enough to keep the city from going through bankruptcy. “Bankruptcy must not be used as a tool to impoverish city of Detroit workers or retirees. City workers have already made severe concessions to keep the city afloat,” the executive council said in a statement.

Circumventing Congress and with no fanfare, President Obama last week issued an executive order enabling him to send an additional $500 million directly to the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank — much of which you can bet will wind up going to the Iranian-backed Hamas terrorist organization.

Karl Rove and more than one hundred Republican donors sent a letter to Republican members of Congress on Tuesday, urging them to pass a comprehensive immigration reform bill that would include, among other provisions, granting "legal status" to illegal aliens who meet certain criteria. Anticipating that lawmakers will face resistance to the bill when they go home for the August recess, the letter marks the escalation of a campaign in which Republican leaders and donors are pressuring House Republicans to act on an immigration reform bill.
