LOUISVILLE, May 16 — Sen. John McCain, once derided as one of the “premier flag-carriers for the enemies of the Second Amendment” by the National Rifle Association, enthusiastically embraced the group’s pro-gun agenda at its annual convention here Friday.
In front of a crowd of about 6,000 people who gave him two standing ovations, McCain also mocked Democratic Sen. Barack Obama as a liberal, anti-gun politician and made a direct appeal to the “bitter” voters Obama said were clinging to their “guns or religion” to soothe concerns about their economic struggles.
“The Second Amendment isn’t some archaic custom that matters only to rural Americans who find solace in firearms out of frustration with their economic circumstances,” McCain said…
Sen. John McCain (R-CT) appears regularly on TV criticising President Obama for not involving the United States in the Civil War in Syria. McCain, driven by his hawkish nature, never tells us why we should insert ourselves in a second Muslim country and borrow even more money from China to fight wars that do nothing the improve our economy or create jobs at home. Sen. McCain is a Republican. is party has been united as one in fighting efforts of the President to create jobs, improve our sluggish economy. For all the good that McCain may be doing, he has not used his power and influence in Congress to get Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (who is up for re-election in Kentucky) to end the Republican war to embarrass and limit the success of our first black president. Can there be another motivation than pure racism? Sen. McCain tacitly approves of using any tactic to win the Whitehouse for his party and cement complete control of our government by the “TOP 1%”, the wealthy, the so-called job creators…the 17 rich white men funding SuperPacs to install a “clown president” in the Whitehouse.
