Time to retire, Johnny. You have besmirched your reputation royally. Just go. Thanks Carrie.

Sorry, John. You showed your true colors! You are getting old and crotchetty! In trying to hurt Susan Rice's reputation for something for which she had no guilt, you hurt your own reputation. I agree with Summer Breeze - it is high time for you to retire!

John McCain does whatever is politically expedient at any given moment. He thought he would gain some traction from blaming Susan Rice, that didn't work so now he blames the White House. The truth is of course, that Obama and Rice creeped into Benghazi and pulled out their rifles and did it all themselves. (sarcasm)
We may never know the exact details, al Qaeda is but one of many rebel groups operating in that area. Who did what, exactly when may never be fully unraveled. The tragedy of four American deaths will remain, but turning that tragedy into a political football is disgraceful.

There is no cure for stupid. Need a model? McCain with each new conspiracy is a great model for stupid.

Thanks Carrie for the link to another good article by Arthur Delaney and the video. Senator McCain needs to retire gracefully. Kit you are so right, we may never know what the actions or intelligence was regarding the Benghazi tragedy. Read, viewed and noted.

Noted. He's one of my Sen's and I've never voted for him. Too many elderly in AZ and rightwingnuts support him. Of course the AZ Corporate media will never go after him, either. But, the more he speaks, the more he seems to be digging his own grave. Progressive voices in this state are growing louder and stronger. Our recent candidate to fill Kyl's seat just lost by a very tiny percentage, after all the votes were finally counted. With heavy grassroots "politicking" in the next couple years, we do hope to replace McShame with a Dem...if not sooner.

McCain has no factual basis for his criticism of Susan Rice. Could it be that John McCain has discovered that he is being a total ass?

John McCain is trying to pull his foot out of his mouth as discreetly as possible --by changing his original stand with no real explanation and little fanfare, and hoping that no one notices. Well, the man with the wet foot and fuzzy mouth isn't going to get off that easily on this mess of his making...

John McCain can take a long walk off a short peer in any bayou in the south. I agree with Obama on this.
