John McCain, the 2008 Republican Presidential nominee has found himself on the wrong side of the political fence. He’s pissing off some conservatives for what is to me a very shocking reason…doing his job!;
The president has become more centrist, which makes him easier to work with, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said Thursday.
Speaking with Bloomberg Television a day after a private meeting with President Obama, McCain said he could picture working with Obama on several issues going forward.
“I think there’s a number of issues we could work on together, and I think it’s pretty clear that the president has really pivoted to a much more centrist position, which I think makes it much more for us easier to work with him,” McCain said.
A United States Senator, simply saying that there may be a number of issues where he can work together with the President of The United States, has become a means for attack from the right. Doug Powers, a writer at Michelle Malkin’s blog says that McCain;
…often reminds me of a trout that just got hooked and is thrilled that the fisherman has agreed to meet him halfway.
John McCain hasn’t said yet what these issues would be, so why would this loony be mad?
It just shows that issues don’t matter with the GOP. All that matters to these people are congressmen and women who will consistently say no to everything this president offers – regardless of the issues, regardless of the policies, regardless of the positive outcome for the American people.
To those on the right, the branches of our government and the President of the United States will not work together if the president’s name happens to be Barack Obama.
