McCain Blasts Harry Reid- Congressional Leaders Demand His Resignation!!
“What I think Senator Reid has lost sight of…
Presidents don’t lose wars.
Political parties don’t lose wars.
Nations lose wars.
And, when nations lose wars, nations suffer.”
Senator John McCain
with Sean Hannity
April 24, 2007
Senator John McCain blasts Majority Leader Reid saying…
“I cannot recall a national leader making such a statement while young Americans are putting their lives on the line and sacrificing as we speak.”
(Video interview 9 minutes)
Senator McCain is not the only one upset with Senator Reid.
Two other Congressional leaders asked Senator Reid to step down or be recalled:
Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK) via NewsMax:
Asked if the Nevada Democrat should resign from his leadership position because of his comments, Inhofe said: “I think it’s more serious than that. I think there should be a recall… for saying something as un-American as that.”
Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA) called for Reid to resign, via The Hill:
“I think it’s highly irresponsible for the leader of the U.S. Senate to have said that and, just speaking for myself as the ranking Republican on the Armed Services Committee, I think that the leader of the Senate should step down from that position.”
Richard Miniter adds: “McCain is actually acting like a statesman. He deserves to be commended, not ignored. His willingness to take on the congressional and media consensus shows guts and reveals character.”
Michelle Malkin has much, much more on “We lost” Reid backlash.
Speaker Pelosi is also taking heat for skipping the briefing on the Iraq War.
