John McCain Responds to Clyburn’s Racist Attacks: When You Can’t Win an Argument on the Merits, You Resort to Personal Attacks


You’ve come a long way baby … NOT!!! If you dare question some one who is black and a woman who mislead the American people, YOU ARE A RACIST!

This morning on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace, Sen. John McCain (AZ-R) responded to Rep. James Clyburn’s (SC-D) reprehensible and race-based attacks from earlier thus week when Clyburn accused Republicans of being racist because they dare question UN Ambassadors Susan Rice’s abilities.  The questioning and criticism came after Rice went on five Sunday talk shows and misled the American public on the 9-11 Benghazi terrorist attacks.

John McCain stated, “I’ve noticed in this town, if they can’t win an argument on the merits then, of course, they resort to those kind of personal attacks.” The GOP best stand up for themselves and defend these ludicrous accusations that blacks, woman and/or both are some how above being questioned. However, for race-baiting Democrats, they are off limits. Hmm, I thought that woman and minorities wanted equal treatment as men, not preferential treatment?

Earlier in the week, the race-baiting Clyburn stated that the criticism of Ambassador Rice includes Racist “Code Words”. Wow, racist code words and I never got the secret decoder ring from the GOP, damn who knew? So some how it is racist and sexist to attack a black woman in office. Really,  ”lazy” and ”incompetent” are racist code words? I have news for you dude, I think these might be the very words that Democrats describes GWB as. Hmm? They called him incompetent. Was it racist then? Was it also racist when Obama called himself lazy? Just asking.

US Rep. Clyburn:

“These are code words. We heard them during the campaign. During this recent campaign, we heard Sununu calling our President ‘lazy,’ ‘incompetent.’ These kinds of terms that those of us – especially those of us who were born and raised in the South – we’ve been hearing these little words and phrases all of our lives and we get insulted by them. Susan Rice is as competent as anybody that you will find…. It certainly caused a big problem with me. I don’t like those words. Say that she was wrong for doing it, but don’t call her incompetent. That is something totally different. A lot of very competent people sometimes make errors, and to say that she erroneously did it, I don’t have a problem with it. But to call her incompetent, a PHD Rhodes Scholar, being called incompetent by someone who can’t hold a candle to her intellectually. By someone who said, and Senator McCain called her incompetent as well. But he told us that Sarah Palin was a very competent person to be Vice President of the United States. That ought to tell you a little bit about his judgment.”

      Blacks protecting blacks when there are questions about the behavior or compentence. Is this lady really a Rhodes Scholar or did she get it by Afirmative Action? What is the subject of her Phd?

      you just keep on beating the drum…..its you and fox!

      A Fox News interview ended rather abruptly on Monday after a guest took not one but two jabs at the network hosting him (see update below).

      Co-anchor Jon Scott interviewed Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author Thomas Ricks, who has covered the military for decades, about his new book “The Generals.” Scott asked Ricks weigh in on the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi and Sen. John McCain’s criticisms of Amb. Susan Rice.

      “I think Benghazi was generally hyped by this network especially,” Ricks said. He added that he thought McCain seemed to be “backing off” from criticizing Rice since “the campaign [was] over.”

      Ricks compared the situation to security contractors who were killed in Iraq. He described the attack in Benghazi as a “small fire-fight” and added, “I think the emphasis on Benghazi has been extremely political, partly because Fox is operating as the wing of the Republican Party.”
      SM: You are such a hypocrite as if anything like this happened on a GOP president’s watch, you know you would be singing a different tune. However, you obviously do not care that 4 Americans died as they begged for help. Thankfully, the Seals disabeyed orders and went to the consulate and rescued those there otherwise 30 would have died.

      Keep it up dude. I am going to tell you right now to be a bit moer respectful on this site or you will be banned. Last warning.
