Sen. John McCain, who attacked UN ambassador Susan Rice over her talking points in the aftermath of the U.S. consulate attack in Benghazi, now says she could win him over during confirmation hearings, if she is nominated to replace Hillary Clinton, by President Obama. Um, really? During an appearance on “Fox News Sunday” with Chris Wallace, he backtracked after his attacks on Rice were proven to be unfounded.

Host Chris Wallace then circled back, asking McCain if he was saying “she could conceivably get your vote for Secretary of State.”

“I think she deserves the ability and the opportunity to explain herself and her position,” McCain responded. “Just as she said. But, she’s not the problem. The problem is the president of the United States.” Source

The reality is that John McCain is losing credibility fast and it seems that he’s chewing on sour grapes over his loss to then-candidate Barack Obama in 2008. It’s amazing that he was quick to throw Susan Rice under a bus, but when there was clear evidence that the Bush Administration bungled the intelligence leading up to the September 11, 2001, terror attacks that claimed thousands of lives, we didn’t hear peep out of him on throwing Donald Rumsfeld or Condoleezza Rice under a bus.

    I wish you people would get the news straight! McCain did not say he could be won over. He said he welcomed the opportunity to have Rice explain herself. Rice has access to confidential information and it would just be a matter of her checking the records to get the truth. Also, she is supposed to know Africa so she is well aware that al-Qaeda is not on his heels as the president so often stated in his campaigning. I don’t McCain has any bones to pick with Obama regarding the election; he is doing his job as state senator. It is Obama who has done all the lying and hiding and bribing Petrauas to go along with his ride. Now if you are going to report the news, report it with truth and a concern for our country!

      “It is Obama who has done all the lying and hiding and bribing Petrauas to go along with his ride.”

      Could you provide some evidence, or is this just based on what you imagine is going on?

        You expect the reich wingnuts to suddenly start dealing in facts and logic? You’re more hopeful than I.

      You are quite right to point out the writer’s clumsy error in journalism here. Senator (NOT State Senator,b.t.w.- your bad) McCain did not imply he could in any way be “won over” by Ambassador Rice. The writer should indeed be reprimanded for so blatantly twisting a fact. It is evident that McCain will never be won over by any point of reason or rationality again. Unfortunately, Miss Kidwell, you could not leave it at that. Like all of your sort, you just could not resist showing off your willful, staggering ignorance with the following: “Rice has access to confidential information and it would just be a matter of her checking the records to get the truth” Oh Miss Kidwill, where to begin? Firstly, “confidential” information? Really? Did you perhaps mean CLASSIFIED information? Revealing confidential information is something one does if one is divulging one’s sorority sister’s supercool secret gossip. Revealing classified information is something one does if they want to be brought up on felony charges, Amb. Rice could no more legally go all rogue and report her own unauthorised, classified version of the intelligence at that point than Scooter Libby when he outed CIA undercover agent Plame. You people are so busy stumbling over yourselves and each other in the desperate attempt to pin something….anything on this President or his administration that you cannot see how sypillitically crazyass you are. You need HELP. you need THERAPY. Please, Miss Kidmore – embarrass yourself no more in the eyes of the thinking community.
