I guess John McCain prefers Obama like Globalism to Half baked nationalism
I guess John McCain prefers Obama like globalism to Half baked nationalism. Perhaps John McCain prefers a President who gives 1.7 billion to a terrorist country, Iran, who then takes the money to improve their nuclear abilities. Or maybe you prefer a president that goes to Saudi Arabia and around the world and bows to the worlds thugs. Or John McCain prefers the president that gave millions to North Korea to improve their “infrastructure” which of course went to their nuclear program?

McCain took aim at nationalist, isolationist rhetoric that has swept through the Republican party and secured a toehold in the White House, in remarks Monday night accepting an award honoring his fight for liberty around the world.
“To fear the world we have organized and led for three-quarters of a century, to abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership and our duty to remain ’the last best hope of earth’ for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems is as unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of the past that Americans consigned to the ash heap of history,” the Arizona Republican told hundreds who gathered and applauded outside the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia.
It marked a rebuttal of sorts to President Donald Trump, who just hours earlier had painted a picture of a nation on the losing end of international negotiations.
“I’m tired of being taken advantage of as a nation,” Mr. Trump said at a cabinet meeting in Washington. “This nation has been taken advantage of for many, many years — for many decades, frankly — and I’m tired of watching it.”
In Philadelphia, Mr. McCain emphasized the benefits that arise from America’s willingness to engage with the world.
“We live in a land made of ideals, not blood and soil,” Mr. McCain said on Monday night. “That leadership has had its costs, but we have become incomparably powerful and wealthy as we did. We have a moral obligation to continue in our just cause, and we would bring more than shame on ourselves if we don’t. We will not thrive in a world where our leadership and ideals are absent. We wouldn’t deserve to.”
President Trump in response to the former Viet Nam prisoner’s statements said today “be careful I fight back.’. We will see if John McCain prefers traditional methods of fighting or just continues his RINO way by blocking the Trump agenda.
