With friends like McCain, who needs….

The day after the Iowa caucuses made Mitt Romney the GOP frontrunner by a razor-thin margin of 8 votes, that 2008 loser and RINO named John McCain — who recently gave Americans a new law that makes it legal for our government to indefinitely detain us without charge or trial — gave his coveted [snark, snark] endorsement to Romney.

McCain is the leader of the Republicans on the Senate Armed Services Committee that approved SB 1867, with its detention without trial of U.S. citizens (Sec. 1031). That bill was signed by Obama on the last day of 2011 and is now law, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012.
Yours truly (and Rush Limbaugh too!) thought at the time that McCain isn’t doing Mitt any favor with his endorsement, but I never thought our cynicism would be proven right so quickly.
Yesterday, at a Mitt Romney campaign event in South Carolina, McCain said:

“I am confident, with the leadership and the backing of the American people, President Obama will turn this country around.” (see video here)

Rob Groce of the Charleston Democrat Examiner observes that McCain’s gaffe was:

A Freudian error of sorts, apparently, but don’t forget that these guys don’t exactly have a loving relationship. McCain’s verbal gaffe might just have been revenge.

In June 2008, before the general election, Romney more or less told media he thought Obama could do a better job than McCain in the White House. “I frankly don’t think that Sen. McCain, despite his service and his length of experience, that that’s going to be able to stand up to the message that Barack Obama has brought forward.”

And here’s what McCain thought about Mitt back in 2008!

McCain was toxic to conservatives in 2008. If Mitts really wanted to shore up street cred, he should have declined that endorsement.

I just listened to Newt’s Townhall on C-span and he was very focused and did a good job. The crowd was with him and he’s got the endorsement of the leading N.H. newspaper so if he can remain focused he could recoup.

Unfortunately, I live in McCain’s state. With the amount of what I do and the things I say, I am surprised he hasn’t ordered them to come & get me already.
Here is a link that lists all the FEMA camps in all states that they know of
I do know that lately, I have had 5-6 helicopters flying over my house every night. It used to be one or two a week!

I still remember John McCanus saying that he thought that Barack Hussein Obama was going to make a fine POTUS, and that was back around the 2008 election.
He was a senile old fart even then.
And don’t even get me started on Jihad Jimmy Earl.

He has to be related to Barack Obama they are like twins they change their minds constantly and never make them up. God is not the author of confusion.
We know who is the father of lies.
They must have the same Daddy!

Sheriff Joe needs to arrest him and Kyl both for treason.
