McCain: ‘Unconstitutional’ to limit Obama’s war powers

February 15, 2015

Sen. John McCain said Sunday that Congress should give President Obama more military authority than he has asked for to defeat the Islamic State.

Mr. McCain, chairman of the Senate Committee on Armed Services, said stripping the commander-in-chief of any military options is “unconstitutional and frankly leaders to 535 commander-in-chiefs” as lawmakers get too involved in specific military strategy.

“I think we should not restrain the president of the United States,” the Arizona Republican said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “Congress has the power of the purse. If we don’t like what the commander-in-chief is doing, we can cut off his funds for doing so.”

    TRAITOR MC CAIN!!!!! He has to go…Can Arizona demand he step down. He has been there forever and one day is too much for this raddled brained traitor. Whatever happened to him overseas, turned him into a turn coat…I dislike him second to Obama.

    McCain you senile wind sock your time has come and gone and you need to be gone with it. Enough of sending our military to fight a wars in camel dung Nirvana. Let them fight their own dam battles as it’s been their barbaric culture since the inception of that satanic cult, and nothing is going to change those Islamic savages until every last dam one of them kills each other off. So be it. They’ve never stepped to the plate for us. If they are here doing us harm then exterminate them and send whats left of them back to the land of modamnhammered. Destroy the mosques or turn them into a chain of pork palace eateries, casinos, and nightclubs. Incarcerate Obama, as he is one of them, try him for dereliction of duty and treason, and be done with it.
    Obama is not a leader, he is a fraud, and does not deserve the respect of a title that he never earned.

    It is shamefull that we have people in power wanting to give Obama more power.Don’t idiots like Mc Cain realize all the wrong Obama has done to our country. McCain it is time you get out of politics. I BELIEVE YOUR TIME SPENT AS A POW HAS EFFECTED YOUR MIND. Start thinking like a military man that your were . Obama would just give the enemy more weapons and money so they could kill more Americans.

  • ralph says:

    McCain you are stupid or paid well by Obama for any one with any form of a brain can see that he is the leader of ISIS and wants to kill off out troops. Hell the ones we have over there can not defend them selfs because of this Muslim Obama ISIS leader

  • David says:

    Most of us don’t like what he has already done and he is still here…dump obozo and you too McCain…..

  • Voltair says:

    Who can stop McCain’s blood lust, not the people of Arizona, not fellow RINO’s, not the leftist media, who can stop him from sacrificing American youth for his pleasure…..something, or someone must stop him…!

  • David in MA says:

    More and more I am becoming convinced that McCain was brainwashed at the Hanoi Hilton and is showing that “indoctrination” more every day.
    UNLESS America is under a direct attack (like illegal immigration, etc.) the president Constitutionally has to go to Congress for involvement of war.
    The Islamic Marxist Obama is playing Congress like a cheap violin and they still think he is incompetent and has no experience… FOOLS, he is a muslim and he is supplying muslims with military gear and training, Obama is a Trojan Horse! The fools in Congress are accomplices to Obama’s destruction of America! I hope the “new blood” in congress can overcome the damage which has already been done. Congress is on Obama’s side just to keep their seats of power, LOL, their “power” is already been compromised by the muslim infiltration of American government…….. I predict, there will be a revolution on the streets of America, blood will flow, liberty will prevail.

      When Isis comes here I pray they go first to DC.

        Maryann33, they are already there in the WH and several departments in the Obama administration and they are powerful departments, congress will regret not voting Obama ineligible to hold the office of president when he sealed all his “records”, even the democratic socialists will shed tears as they board the trains to the FEMA Camps.

        1. MARYANN33 says:

          I know they are in the government. America is so blind to our danger…Get the POS out of office and his cronies with him…Cleanse D C. and then head for cleansing Chicago, where O learned even more treachery.

          *BREAKING NEWS! *Ben Carson: Obama Might be Guilty of Treason…*Read the latest now on*
          *Patriots and Heroes,*

          It is terrifying.

          Horrific acts are being committed all over the world. As we worry about being the next target there’s Mr. Hollywood, Barack Hussein Obama playing rockstar in the Oval Office and hosting…illegals!!!!

          I’m so sick of this I could scream bloody murder. Are you with me?

          Do you feel so fed up you could just explode? Well there is something you can do about it. *Blast an IMPEACH O’LIAR fax blast to every member of the House and Senate today.*
          As if all this is not bad enough, tell me: like me, do you think that Obama has shown his true colors as a radical Islamist sympathizer? He refuses to call a spade a spade. It’s shocking and downright reprehensible.
          We’ve known for some time he is clearly tied to radicals like the Muslim Brotherhood. They’ve made visits to the White House and the State Department. He sided with the Islamist forces in Libya. Folks, he is up to something and it is likely to be far more sinister than we could ever imagine.

          Obama’s ties to radical Islamists and terrorists will bring great harm to America—yet another nail in her coffin. Well you know what? It’s high time to *push harder than ever to impeach the traitor!*
          We must hurry before it’s too late.

          What can you do to do your part?

          You can *take part in our all-out fax blitz.* We’re going to *hammer all 100 Senators and every one of the 435 members of the House with IMPEACH OBAMA NOW fax blasts.*
          Obama’s trail of deceptions and lies is only getting deeper, putting America at greater risk economically, socially and financially for starters.
          Obama is no president. He is a traitor to America.

          He’s misled us or outright deceived us on virtually every major issue: Obamacare, Benghazi, NSA, Fast and Furious, Amnesty … and that 5.6% unemployment rate they keep touting? What a joke.

          More smoke and mirrors.

          That unemployment figure doesn’t count anyone who has given up looking for work. Work one hour a week? Guess what? You don’t count either nor do the underemployed working part time but who really need full-time work.
          In usual Obama fashion he and his deceptinators won’t tell you that. They want you to live in a fantasy land.

          We have to stop this egregious violation of America and the desecration of the office of the president of the United States.

          *IMPEACH!* That is our only option to be free and clear of this malignancy in the Oval Office.

          What will it take to get an impeachment? People!!!

          And the more people we have the better—people with Patriot engraved on their hearts and with the desire to restore America coursing through their blood.

          We the People must step up and step forward. The louder our voices, the more resistance we put up, the more our lawmaker will listen. I’ve seen firsthand what the pressure of the people can do.

          We can make this work but not without you.
