Senator John McCain called the Obama administration “cowardly” for waiting for the facts before taking action on the downed Malaysian Airlines Flight.
Senator John McCain wasted no time on Fox News politicizing the tragedy of the ceased Malaysia Airlines Flight which caused the deaths of nearly 300 people.
“It’s just been cowardly, it’s a cowardly administration that failed to give the Ukrainians weapons with which to defend themselves,” McCain said on Hannity.
Oh, yes. It’s cowardly the way the Obama administration failed to jump on the imaginary WMD in Iraq.
McCain also claimed that President Obama went AWOL,”This is just what we used to call in the military AWOL…This is directly loss of American lives here, and the president goes to a fundraiser? Help me out….I don’t understand this president. Crisis on the border, he did the fundraisers, the fundraisers in New York while there are major, major conflicts, not to mention the loss of American lives, is reported that there were Americans on that airplane. I do not understand it.”
Republicans can’t stand the Obama doctrine. John McCain would rather be bomb, bomb, bombing any and everyone before the facts come in — you know, just in case. Sen. McCain is so frustrated by the fact that the Obama foreign policy has worked where his neo-con warmongering has failed that he has been reduced to personal attacks and name calling.
John McCain’s solution to everything is more guns. Notice that he isn’t calling for US troops in the region, he just wants to create a full blown war. It is odd that McCain would call Obama a coward when it was George W. Bush and Dick Cheney who abandoned their posts and went into hiding on 9/11.
The true cowards are Republicans like John McCain, who lied the country into going to war with Iraq, and have never taken responsibility for the American blood on their hands. Republicans are trying sleazily to use the loss of 298 lives as a political weapon against President Obama.
When McCain’s comments are viewed in this context, it is easy to see who is the real coward.
