John McCain is a Republican Senator from Arizona. He ran for President against Barack Obama and lost. I voted for John McCain because he would have been a better President than Barack Obama. That does not mean that Senator McCain is not an idiot. Being an idiot is not what cost him the election, especially given that he lost the election to an even worse Senator. That said, if this is what Senator McCain thinks counts as serving his country, then I say that Senator McCain has served our Country long enough.
Earlier, the former Republican presidential nominee said he expects Hagel to be confirmed as defense secretary even though he doesn’t plan to vote for him.
“I don’t believe he is qualified,” McCain said. “But I don’t believe that we should hold up his nomination any further.” - HotAir.com
Senator McCain is playing old-school Senate games. The President however is counting on the Republican Senators to play by these rules as he breaks them and uses them to his advantage. After all, it was President Obama who declared that the Senate was on recess so that he could push through some of his political appointees that the Senate was holding pro-forma sessions specifically to prevent the President from appointing without confirmation from the Senate.
Senator McCain has become a useful idiot and an enabler of the left. Take the calls for more gun control. Lets forget that the Democrat suggestions and demands are unreasonable. You don't hear Senator McCain defending the rights of Americans. No. Instead he is eager to find compromise with the democrats. This compromise will be at the expense of our rights. And for what? So that Senator McCain can continue to be a big-ish man in Congress. Forget it.
The point of Senate Confirmation is to ensure that Presidential appointees are competent and qualified to serve in the positions that they have been appointed to. If you think that Hagel is unqualified, than do what you can to keep this unqualified idiot from a position in charge of the Pentagon.Senators have such powers, especially when they act together. McCain would rather move along. That is unfortunate. Many people busted their asses working to help McCain become President. It would be nice if McCain busted his ass once in a while in return...
Given that you can't teach this old dog any new tricks, can't we just send him home.
