McCain Monday: Rejecting Syria Resolution Would be ‘Catastrophic’; McCain Today: I Don’t Support Syria Resolution

Posted by on Sep 04, 2013 at 10:16 am

This must be his online poker face.

Sen. John McCain says he doesn’t support the latest Senate resolution to authorize military force against Syria.

McCain is an outspoken advocate of intervention against Syrian President Bashar Assad’s regime and wants more than cruise missile strikes and other limited action.

The Arizona Republican threatened earlier this week to vote against a White House draft resolution unless President Barack Obama promised greater support to Syria’s rebels. McCain then came out in favor after meeting Obama at the White House.

He sang a much different tune the other day.

“If the Congress were to reject a resolution like this, after the president of the United States has already committed to action, the consequences would be catastrophic, in that the credibility of this country with friends and adversaries alike would be shredded,” McCain told reporters. “And there would be not only implications for this president, but for future presidencies as well.”

He may actually have less credibility than Obama, though that’s up for debate after Obama’s latest gaffe.

    Heh, neither has to worry. They haven’t had any credibility left for years.

    So, what he is saying is that even though the US is not a dictatorship, we must do everything the President says or it will be catastrophe…I guess if we choose to follow his every word, it does not make the Prez a dictator, it makes us meaningless indoctrinated drones.

    I’m an outspoken advocate of McCain sitting down, writing a resolution entitled” I Announce my Immediate Retirement” and submitting it today.
