Senator John McCain was a guest on Fox News’ Sean Hannity show when the discussion turned to Benjamin Netanyahu’s scheduled speech before Congress in March and President Obama’s feigned upset about his coming. It was about that time that Senator McCain basically called the President a LIAR.
SEN. JOHN MCCAIN: What does it take to get this president’s attention?
SEAN HANNITY, FOX NEWS: Why does this president, you heard what he said about the crusades last week. OK, we can talk about history–
JOHN MCCAIN: Eight hundred years ago.
SEAN HANNITY: –but this is the reality of today. He won’t say ‘radical islamist,’ he won’t. He seems to be in denial…
JOHN MCCAIN: I’ve been around a long time, as you know, and I have never seen any thing like this lack of leadership in my life…
SEANHANNITY: The administration says John Boehner broke protocol by inviting Benjamin Netanyahu to speak, now one Democrat after another is not going. His former campaign staff is now in Israel actively campaigning against Bibi Netanyahu and similarly Joe Biden and John Kerry are going to meet with Bibi’s opponents.
JOHN MCCAIN: They did meet with Bibi’s opponent in Munich. Sheer hypocrisy. By the way, it seems to me it is perfectly appropriate for the elected Speaker of the House of Representatives can invite someone to speak to the Congress. They’re not inviting him to speak to Barack Obama. I think it is entirely appropriate. There is so much at stake here — Bibi has to tell the American people about this threat of making a deal with the Iranians. That is an existential threat to the state of Israel.
