    Reference: CNN, November 15, 2012: McCain skips Benghazi briefing, gets testy when questioned by CNN

    John McCain and Lindsay Graham are seemingly on a vendetta to disparage the reputation of Susan Rice, the UN Ambassador. McCain is throwing lies around to the media, but then chose to skip a top secret briefing on the Benghazi attack. A CNN reporter quizzed him on that:

    "When CNN approached McCain in a Capitol hallway Thursday morning, the senator refused to comment about why he missed the briefing, which was conducted by top diplomatic, military and counter-terrorism officials. Instead, McCain got testy when pressed to say why he wasn't there.

    "I have no comment about my schedule and I'm not going to comment on how I spend my time to the media," McCain said.

    Asked why he wouldn't comment, McCain grew agitated: "Because I have the right as a senator to have no comment and who the hell are you to tell me I can or not?”

    When CNN noted that McCain had missed a key meeting on a subject the senator has been intensely upset about, McCain said, "I'm upset that you keep badgering me."

    Of course the meeting was tagged top secret with no cameras. McCain seems to be conducting his vendetta against Obama and his administration in front of he's still campaigning.

    Maybe he's like that Japanese soldier, Lt. Hiroo Onoda, who never surrendered in the jungles of the Philippines until 29years later.

    Also from CNN:

    According to a Democratic aide on the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, only three of the eight GOP members of the committee attended the two hour briefing that ran from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. ET. By contrast, seven of the nine Democratic members were there.

    You certainly would have thought that John McCain was an adult, but he sure has some growing-up to do. I think he's just sore cuz his guy lost the election, and he wants to do anything and everything he can to dis or downplay Obama. Especially since Obama called he and Lindsay out for their derision of Susan Rice, I think he is just plain scared of getting an a--- chewing from the President.

    Yeah, following Mr.McCain's artistry is indeed so obvious; I'm not a phycologist, but my feeling is that since he is one of the highest rewarded lobyist for the war industry, he is missing out on a real "fat bone" because Rommelbee lost. this "has been" probably promised a huge "kick back" for the "x" billion Rommelbee wanted to increase the defense spending with. So I think he's kind of

    I agree. There should be a maximum age for Senators and Congress persons.

    Mac, I don't think we need an amendment to limit the age of candidates so much as we need one to test their mental acumen and their IQ's.
    McCain's psyche may have been irreparably damaged by the suffering he experienced as a prisoner of war. Whatever the reason he is a prickly, war hawk and unreasonable advocate of many things poiitically irrational. Does his age have something to do with it ? I doubt it because he was just as quick on the bile years ago as he is today. Look at Paul Ryan. He's young enough and he's far more socially whacky than McCain and most of his own fairly whacky supporters in the Tea Bag show. ...... To think of men like this making life and death decisions for 300 million of us offers a good argument that the nation is too large and populated to allow a the possibility of a few crackpots ascending to positions of almost absolute power...... I think the nation would be well served if we could pass such an amendment. Some people I believe who would have failed such a test are -Ronald 'Dopey Dildock' Reagan, Orrin 'Smarmy' Hatch, Joe ' Mr. Sincerity' Lieberman, George 'Wigged Out " Bush, Rick 'Bible Boy' Santorum, Rick 'Dum Dum' Perry of Texas, John ' Sicko' Sununu , Dick ' Ready, Aim, Fire' Cheny....the list goes on. But given the seriously mental derangement of men like this what are we to think of the millions of folks who vote for them and support their agendas ? In a saner world than the one we live in I think that the reeducation of the American citizens would be the first order of business After that we should have plenty of support for my amendment.

    I'm kind of amazed on all the time spent on the Libya thing. As I mentioned in one of my "threads" the issue is so simple, as follows.
    When I went to Lybia, I researched first (as well as the company) what was going on there; then I would request all kind of things; if I would not get these I would refuse to go. This ambassador thought he was very much liked over there; mistake nr1!!! This guy never should have accepted this job without protection beforehand. I put the full blame on the ambassador.
    The whole McCain "circus" is again that if he does it not get it "his way" for the "umptiest" time, because the "me me" is the first is part of his nature.
    Also do not forget his "highness" profits from the war industry lobby and has lost out on the Rommelbee promise of boosting the war expenditure
    The funny thing in this country is the "older" they (polititians, billionairs etc.) get the more "greedy" and "nutty": plenty examples around (Trump?)!!!
