‘Didn’t Know It Was This Bad’:
McCain, Graham Warn Egypt ‘Days,
Weeks Away From All Out Bloodshed’

Mediaite, by Evan McMurry

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 8/7/2013 11:22:38 AM

Speaking from Egypt Tuesday night, where they are hoping to broker a peaceful transition period between the country’s ouster of former President Mohamed Morsi to its next phase of nascent democracy, Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham warned that concessions on both sides needed to begin immediately or Egypt’s government would “fail.” “I didn’t know it was this bad,” Graham said. “These folks are just days, weeks away from all out bloodshed.” “There is only one way that we can bring about a peaceful Egypt, and that is a process of negotiation and reconciliation between major players,” McCain said.

Comments:
If I never had to see these two morons again I would be a very happy woman. Their willful negligence in continuing to support the murderous Muslim Brotherhood is outrageous. McCain thinks the Muslim Brotherhood leaders should be be released from prison to jumpstart negotiations?? It just takes your breath away.

Mubarak doesn´t look so bad now.
This is what happens when Obama and Hillary poke their noses into other country´s politics. Failure, utter failure.
Obama and Hillary have blood on their hands.

Obama wants the Muslim Bro, Egypt´s version of the Nazi party, restored to full power. Failing this, Obama wants the MB to be given 3-4 ministerial positions in government, surely to undermine what remains of freedom. McFool and Grahamster are there to pressure military into giving the MB serious role in governing and rewriting the constitution that was written 15 months ago for Sharia enforcement.

Odd that Obama condemns Putin & Russia for its anti-LGBT laws but is completely silent about Muslim hate of homosexuals. Remember Iran´s president claim at Columbia University that "Iran doesn´t have homosexuals"? Iran apparently executes these citizens.

Wasn´t it McCain who assured us the Muslim Brotherhood were the good guys during the Arab Spring? One year later all hell is breaking loose and he says he didn´t know it was this bad?

Empower a bunch of radical islamists and then try to take their power away. What do you think is going to happen, you moron?

Senators McCain and Graham, you embarrass yourselves more and more everyday. It´s time you go to the rest home for retired, disgraced Senators and Representatives and let the big guns who still have a brain, ie. Cruz, Lee, Paul, take over.

From the British press we learn that the islamist Muslim Brotherhood is pretty much universally despised in Egypt. 14 million Egyptians took to the streets to demand the removal of Morsi and the Brotherhood, and the army stepped in to fulfill that demand. In all likelihood it was the army´s intervention, and ONLY the army´s intervention, that saved Morsi from an upside-down fate ala Mussolini.

What this means is that the "all out bloodshed" Graham refers to would almost certainly be the wholesale slaughter of the Muslim Brotherhood, if not by the army then by the Egyptian people themselves hunting them down in the streets. So, McCain and Graham are over in Egypt desperately trying to save the muslim brotherhood, the same group that Code Pink members and other prominent American far leftists (whom I will not name, but they are googleable) were in Egypt in December 2011 helping bring to power.

McCain and Graham are showing their hand and blowing their cover on this one. Panic in the globalist camp.

Question to the two senior Senators--When did the MB exihibit a desire for "process and negotiation" when they held the reigns of (elected) power in Egypt over these last 12 months...?

Rather, they abused their position and place in the government to rule, unilaterally.

These two wacky-birds should stay in Cairo, indefinitely!

A huge chunk of the population said they wanted the Muslim Brotherhood out of power. The only stability Egypt has known has been under military rule. These twits want to let the Muslim Brotherhood out of prison and negotiating for power?

Does anyone remember Joe Lieberman standing next to McCain during the 2008 campaign, feeding him the correct answers to questions regarding the Middle East? McCain had no idea who the warring party`s were. Lieberman had to whisper in his ear like a ventriloquist. Or the time McCain and Hillary took a 3 day trip to Alaska, came back and declared Global Warming an imminent threat? Then there was the time McCain declared Congress needed to regulate vitamins.

McCain`s Brain`s were scrambled during his stay at the Hanoi Hilton, and that does`nt explain his crashing 5 jets before that ever happened.

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

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.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority.

The Clintons had a busy night of celebrations after Chelsea announced she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting a baby. Bill joined “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey at the Revlon Rainforest Fund Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall Thursday, joking of Spacey’s Machiavellian character, “When I was president people accused me of murder all the time, made a show of investigating.
