McCain joins Obama in calling for
review of ´Stand Your Ground´ laws

NBC News, by Michael O´Brien

Original Article

Posted By:BuckeyeRon, 7/21/2013 2:25:25 PM

A top Republican joined President Barack Obama´s call to review so-called "Stand Your Ground" laws in the aftermath of the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the 2012 shooting of black teen Trayvon Martin. Sen. John McCain, Ariz., a prominent Republican who´s been known to break ranks with fellow members of the GOP at times, urged state legislatures to review Stand Your Ground laws in the wake of the Zimmerman trial, which became a national flashpoint for race relations in America. "I can also see that Stand Your Ground laws may be something that needs to be reviewed by the Florida

The village aka Senate has lost its idiot!
Does he know Stand your Ground did not play any role in this case?
Does he know blacks in Florida uses Stand your ground more than whites?
Does he know about Trayvons record of criminal behavior tha teas covered up to depress the crime statistics of young black men?
Does he know he wasn´t even raised by Sabrina his birth mother-who only came on the scene for the money and fame?
Does he know about the fathers discussion with his minor son about getting him a gun?
Does he know Trayvod didn´t even live in Sanford and why he was there?
The only thing worse than Obama as POTUS -would have been this Rino who would have given the dems everything they want and the Republicans would have been blamed.
John, go home to your rich wife and let a Conservative take your place.

He´s right up there with Chuckie Schumer, looking for the spotlight to stab Repubs and Conservatives in the back. He is a democrat and a liberal one and I wish he´d say so. He is as untrustworthy as our Kingly POTUS. Two of a kind. Retire, give us a break!

As I speculated in earlier posts, Obama has never had McCain and his wife audited by the IRS. Nor have OSHA, ICE, EPA, EEOC investigators ever intruded on her beer distribution company during Obama´s reign. This hands off policy surely explains McCain´s support of Obama. Only other explanation is delayed North Vietnamese brain washing. "Lt McCain, 50 years from now your mind will only remember our propaganda."

Either way, McCain has to go away or at least stay off TV.

Add me to the other posters confused and angered by this man. Where I once had inestimable respect for him it´s long gone. I´ve tried to remain on his side because of his heroism as a POW and will always be grateful for his service to America. That was yesterday. All I can say now is: Go away John. Take your fat, spoiled, and repulsive daughter who, if possible, shoots her mouth off worse than you do. The two of you can in a room with each other and talk as you do the nation a favor and spare the rest of us.

"And for those who resist that idea that we should think about something like these ´Stand Your Ground´ laws, I´d just ask people to consider, if Trayvon Martin was of age and armed, could he have stood his ground on that sidewalk?" Obama asked. "And if the answer to that question is at least ambiguous, then it seems to me that we might want to examine those kinds of laws."
---------------

I THINK this is a stupid, indeed a moronic, senseless rhetorical question - but I have to admit I have no idea what Obama is talking about or what his reasoning is. Perhaps someone else knows what he is talking about. Perhaps he himself knows. I am completely baffled.

If Martin was "of age"(a mere 19 as I recall) and armed, could he have "stood his ground" on that sidewalk? Yes, of course - if he was being threatened or attacked. So what? Why not?

That John McCain lines himself up with this sort of thing is no longer a surprise or even a disappointment. It is what we have come to expect from him.

McCain´s military career, I recently learned from a website I cannot recall but which should not be hard to locate, was considerably less than stellar. It has been suggested that had his father not been an Admiral, he might not have prospered. I seem to recall that he totaled a couple of aircraft in training, something that is usually viewed with disfavor by the military.

#27 You are absolutely correct...John McCain was known as a Black Ace for crashing at least 5 planes including being responsible for accidentally starting the fire on the Forestal which killed 167 sailors. (Look up wet start which blows a stream of fire out the exhaust of the plane.)

It´s dog track time for the old sailor who just won´t go away.

Once again, McCain is ready to serve his master. I don`t think he psychologically ever left Vietnam. He is always at the forefront, ready to help his oppressors. There has to be a red phone in his office with direct access to the WH. Barack always calls on McCain when he needs GOP help on an issue.

One thing McCain can´t do is stop talking. I´ve seen him at town meetings since ´82 and he never shuts up. I think the reason he feels water boarding is torture is because you can´t talk underwater. To him not being able to talk is torture. He really doesn´t seem to care if he knows what he´s talking about.

He is seething that he did not win in 2008. He´s pretending to be prez, or at least vicariously.

McCain actually thinks he improves the party´s image with these constant reaches across the aisle. In the meantime he gets no respect from either side. The media doesn´t take him serious as a republican sellout to get behind.

Him and Graham are totally discredited with rank and file republicans,along with Rubio now.He got nominated in 2008 because a lot of older Americans put a lot of value on military service.

#2 it seems more likely that McCain has a crush on the Alpha Dog, Obama.

He is a Useful Idiot to Democrats. For that reason the MSM keeps him visible. And senility may be setting in. It happens.

There is no more reason to feel that military merit makes one wise than to insist it does not.

I have had no use for McPain since hearing stories in 2000 about him chasing other officer´s wives both on and off base thinking being a war hero and a captain gave him absolution.

During his 2010 reelection campaign, one would have thought he was Sen Goldwater’s identical twin but most of us new better.

McPain is a RINO´s RINO and has been on the wrong side of too many issues.

Note to Michael O´Brien: McCain is no longer a ´leading Republican´. He is a mentalally challenged, senile, Hasbeenian attention whore, who is increasingly irrelevant.

If you want to talk to a ´leading Republican´ get Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and Mike Lee to give you a relevant quote.

John McCain has stayed too long. It´s time he found a cork that fits his pie hole and shoves it in every time he´s tempted to speak. That wide-eyed grinning village idiot look that comes across his face when he says something he thinks is profound isn´t—it´s is embarrassing and scary. McCain is rapidly undoing the admiration he earned in the military and for having served his country in the past.

The best thing he can do now is shut up and go away. And if he wants to add more shine to his halo he can take his fat, dumb daughter Meghan (renowned for nothing except being able to take mums and daddums for enough bucks to assure she´ll never have to work and be free to shoot her stupid mouth off at will).

Is it any wonder why McDoofuss is a hit on the Sunday lib-talkshows. He just can´t help himself with his constant mancrush on Odumbo. That old stupid song by the Obama Girl back in 08 is what I hear everytime this guy gets on TV to offer his support for the lefist nut in the White House. Even with his withering intellect the old crash test dummy must know that the stand your ground laws did NOT apply in the Zimmerman case. But ti is just like the O´Clown to not let a good crisis go to waste. Odumbo can also count on his good friend Johnny Mac the Black Flying Ace to come to the rescue. This pantload needs to retire so that he can spend his wife´s beer money and keep an eye on his idiot daughter.

"Never, never again shall it be that this beautiful land will again experience the oppression of one by another. " 3.

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: I´ve gotta tell, another little thing about Nelson Mandela. Do you realize in a couple of ways, maybe even more than a couple, Nelson Mandela has more in common or had more in common with Clarence Thomas than he does with Barack Obama? For example, Nelson Mandela (even prior to becoming president, but certainly after he became president of South Africa) insisted on compliance with his country´s constitution. He insisted on it. Obama looks at the US Constitution as an obstacle and makes end runs around it every day, practically. In that sense... These are the kind of

RUSH: Let me give you what is, I think, one of the most amazing things I ever heard Nelson Mandela say. We had fun with Mandela when he was in New York, when he came to New York and went to Yankees Stadium. But I´ll tell you, there are very few people that could have undergone what he went through and maintained any sense of dignity or optimism.(Snip) "Resentment is like drinking poison and then hoping it will kill your enemies." Is that not great? And it´s great because it´s exactly right. Resentment doesn´t do anybody any good.

The U.S. federal health insurance website HealthCare.gov, which has had technology problems since its October 1 launch, is now experiencing errors in transmitting applications about 10 percent of the time, a government spokeswoman said on Friday. The online insurance marketplace relays information about new customers in ´834´ transaction forms to the private insurance companies that provide the health plans. HealthCare.gov serves people in 36 states, while 14 states are running their own websites. "We believe nine of 10 transactions are being successfully transmitted," the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, or CMS, spokeswoman Julie Bataille said at a news briefing.

Washington — Thad Cochran, a Mississippi Republican who was first elected to the Senate in 1978, set up a generational and ideological clash in the state’s Republican primary when he announced Friday that he would seek a seventh term in 2014. While Mr. Cochran, who turns 76 on Saturday, has the support of many leading Republicans in the state, he is already facing opposition from Chris McDaniel, 41, a state senator aligned with the Tea Party who announced his candidacy in October and has won the support of some conservative groups.

Rep. James Sensenbrenner Jr., the original author of the Patriot Act, says Director of National Intelligence James Clapper should be prosecuted for lying to Congress. "Lying to Congress is a federal offense, and Clapper ought to be fired and prosecuted for it," the Wisconsin Republican said in an interview with The Hill. He said the Justice Department should prosecute Clapper for giving false testimony during a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing in March. During that hearing, Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) asked Clapper whether the National Security Agency (NSA) collects data on millions of Americans. Clapper insisted that the NSA does not

Washington - President Barack Obama on Thursday defended his nuclear diplomacy with Iran before an audience of Israeli diplomats and senior members of the US Jewish community and officials. At a White House Hanukkah reception, Obama said that it was important for the United States to test Iran´s intentions, and pledged to keep working for a comprehensive deal to deprive Tehran of a nuclear weapon. "For the first time in a decade we have halted progress of Iran´s nuclear program," Obama said. "Key parts of the program will be rolled back even though the toughest of our sanctions remain in

To fully appreciate what former South African president Nelson Mandela was able to accomplish, it is necessary to hearken back to the South Africa he found when he emerged from prison in 1990, and what the country was like in those critical four years between his release and his election to the presidency in 1994. Put simply, South Africa was a violent, dangerous and heavily-armed place teetering precariously on the edge of an all-out race war. And in the early 1990s, it was entirely unclear which way the country would go. On one side, embittered white rejectionists were refusing to

FW de Klerk, the South African president under whom Nelson Mandela was released from prison, has said his country and the world have lost "a great unifier". De Klerk shared the Nobel peace prize with Mandela in 1993 for brokering the end of apartheid and, when the ANC leader was elected president in the first multiracial election, entered into a government of national unity as his deputy. De Klerk, 77, said in remarks to the BBC: "It´s a very sad moment for the whole of South Africa and I´m sure millions of people around the world. "I fully associate myself

Nelson Mandela was the most famous black man in history. He transcended race barriers to become an exemplar of human generosity of spirit. His towering personality made possible the peaceful transfer of power in South Africa from white minority to black majority rule. If he was less effective as president of his country than he had been as the symbol of resistance to apartheid, he demonstrated statesmanship unmatched in Africa. He inspired love as much as respect, and became regarded by hundreds of millions of people as a secular saint. More was asked of him, and sometimes claimed for him,

Former South African President Nelson Mandela has died at age 95 of complications from a recurring lung infection. The anti-apartheid leader and Nobel Peace Prize laureate was a beloved figure around the world, a symbol of reconciliation from a country with a brutal history of racism. Mandela was released from prison in 1990 after nearly 30 years for plotting to overthrow South Africa´s apartheid government. In 1994, in a historic election, he became the nation´s first black leader. Mandela stepped down in 1999 after a single term and retired from political and public life.

The victim in an early morning shooting in Walker County has been identified as Ronald Westbrook, a 72-year-old Alzheimer´s patient. Westbrook was shot outside the home of Joe Hendricks on Cottage Crest Court about 4 am. Westbrook lived about two-and-a-half miles from where he was shot and had apparently wandered away from home. Walker County Sheriff Steve Wilson said Hendricks has not been charged. However he said the investigation continues and did not rule out the possibility of charges in the future. The sheriff said Hendricks heard a suspicious sound outside the house and called 911.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him."

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O.

Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings.

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov.

She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal
