John McCain on Clyburn’s Awful Attacks: When You Can’t Win an Argument You Resort to Personal Attacks (Video)

John McCain was on FOX News Sunday with Chris Wallace this morning. He responded to Rep. James Clyburn’s awful attacks this week accusing Republicans of being racist because they questioned Susan Rice’s abilities. This came after Rice misled the American public on the 9-11 Benghazi terrorist attacks.

“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.”

Republicans are finally starting to hit back at the absurd accusation by Democrats that criticism of UN Ambassador Susan Rice is racist and sexist.

    “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.”

    You’ve noticed that, have you? How astute.

  • FurryGuy

    The man sure knows about no merits leading to personal attacks; anyone remember his slur of the TEA Party being Hobbits?

  • Chippy

    How about the theme; “Never let a crisis go to waste”.

    Isn’t it interesting that nothing has changed for the better in four years? The only thing that has changed is the expansion of the welfare state.

    You can use the phrase, “Never let a crisis go to waste” and win re-election.

    how long did it take him to figure out that’s all community organizers do??

  • Lady Mondegreen

    It’s time for McCain to find a comfortable rocker somewhere and fade away.

  • Sasja

    He tried to slur the Tea Party by calling us Hobbits. But who saved Middle Earth? A very brave and tenacious Hobbit.

    And Republicans are worried about their future. How foolish! We have Johnny Mac.

  • Starvin’ Marvin

    I noticed a while back that someone had equated sasja with this little fellow….. how fitting.

  • Gayle Spencer

    Never knew that Susan Rice was a schwarze. Always just thought of her as an all-too-typical loud-mouthed, arrogant, full-of-herself turkey.

  • Portia

    “Never knew that Susan Rice was a schwarze”.

    yet you call yourselves informed voters…. there you have it.

  • DecentAmerican

    The typical firewall of the racist Dem party……backed into a corner of any logical discussion……cry racism!!! Every word of the English language is a code word, a dog whistle… about we talk in grunts, so we don’t risk offending anyone?

    And for him to bring Sarah Palin into this……what does Sarah have to do with Bengazi, you stupid racist Clyburn? Sarah, btw, who strengthened Alaskas 11 billion dollar
    Economy, who successfully fought corruption…..he considers her incompetent, and yet he thinks Rice is competent, someone who cluelessly told lies to the American people?

    More affirmative action, more political correctness to drive America into mediocrity, thanks to the stupid racist limbs who voted for this clown in the white house.

  • sharon

    I’m an African-American and these Jackals make me sick, they demean REAL RACISM when it occurs. INCOMPENTENCE has nothing to do with RACE!!!

    Republicans/Conservatives, SPEAK OUT AGAINST THIS NONSENSE!!

  • DecentAmerican

    To stupid Racist Portia, #10……when I see Rice, I see an incompetent buffoon, based on her record. You see a black woman. I am informed on her record and character, you are informed on her race?

    Who is better informed, and who is the racist?

    Stupid racist KKK founding, hateful liberals, destroying this country.

    It’s time for McCain to put everything he has on the line for this nation, it’s people , his good friend Stevens and all that have lost their lives in Benghazi, Fast and Furious and every other reckless failed operation linked to this administration, including the fraud perpetrated against the people. It is time the senator stands up and places it all on the line. No time left, to sit down and play games, and wait this storm out. The natives are restless and are getting more uneasy as the days turn to night. If you and the rest do not do as what you were elected to do, and bring forth justice in the name of the constitution and God I believe you sir will feel the wrath of all. Place your faith is God senator and your might in the people and step up to the plate, fight force with force. Retire in peace when you have completed the task of bringing the criminals before the people that have hid behind skewed laws, the very laws that they claim to enforce..

    james clyburn is a racist.

  • jharp

    Please. By all means. Keep up the attacks based on nothing but a person’s race.

    It worked so well for you this past election.

  • Gerald

    Notice again that Mr. brave war hero McCain shrinks from standing up for his former running mate. And what a great opportunity missed to point out the contrasting histories of the two parties on race.

    He rarely fails to disappoint.

  • Patty

    Where was McCain in 2008. I have been saying that these racists who are suppose to be leaders, like Fudge who also is a racist, need to be called out immediately and I mean every day if need be.

    We need some real men and women and this racism has played a hateful and less becoming part on our nations integrity and what America is all about. PRIDE not Racism and it must be called out. And the “LEADERS” DOING THIS, must go.

  • jharp

    Gerald, there’s more from your 2008 nominee.

    “John McCain said on Sunday the GOP needs to embrace a bigger tent and immigration reform – and leave abortion “alone” in the wake of the disappointing 2012 presidential elections.”

    “We have to have a bigger tent. No doubt about it. And obviously we have to do immigration reform,” McCain said on “Fox News Sunday.” “There is no doubt whatsoever that the demographics are not on our side.”

    Interesting. Abortion and immigration reform. And taxes, gay marriage, and ObamaCare.

    Republican’s have lost all five issues. Badly.

    Why not just become democrats? We have room for reasonable people who want to move our country forward..
