Senator McCain (R-AZ) Gets Hammered at Town Hall Event for His Support of Military Strikes Against Syria … “Why are you not listening to the people and staying out of Syria? It’s not our fight.”
McRINO gets blasted by “We the People” …
Senator John McCain took time from his video poker to hold a town meeting and got an earful from his constituents and by an overwhelming majority was told not to take military action against Syria. Many in the crowd echoed the sentiment that getting more involved in the civil war would lead to unintended consequences. Something that appears to be completely lost on President Obama, McCain, Kerry and the rest. One individual stated, “Why are you not listening to the people and staying out of Syria? It’s not our fight.”
Sen. John McCain, whose endorsement of President Barack Obama’s plan to launch military strikes against Syria provided the president a key Republican backer, faced vocal opponents of military action during a town hall in Arizona Thursday.
McCain has long advocated a more muscular American approach toward Syria, calling for a plan to oust President Bashar al-Assad from power. But on Thursday many people who showed up to a town hall in Phoenix said that getting more involved in the civil war would lead to unintended consequences.
“We didn’t send you to make war for us. We sent you to stop the war,” one man said to applause.
At one point during the meeting McCain was interrupted causing the senator to stop and address the individual, “What you’re doing is not just disrespectful to me, but disrespectful to others who want their opinions and views heard.” Really? I actually think it is more disrecptful to completely ignore the will of the people and do whatever you damn well please. You were elected to represent the People, not go off on your tangents where this fossil actually believes the so-called freedom fighters are not Al-Qaeda.
