    McCain scolds GOP for whacking Obama

    In a surprising rebuke to the warriors who fought for him through tough times, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Sunday sided with President-elect Barack Obama and scolded the Republican National Committee for fanning the Illinois corruption scandal.

    On ABCs This Week, host George Stephanopoulos asked: The chairman of the Republican National Committee, Mike Duncan, has been highly critical of the way President- elect Obama has dealt with this.

    "He's had a statement every single day, saying that the Obama team should reveal all contacts they've had with Governor [Rod] Blagojevich. He says that Obama's promise of transparency to the American people is now being tested. Do you agree with that?

    This is the John McCain that non-partisans can all appreciate. Welcome back, John.

    Re: McCain scolds GOP for whacking Obama

    I wasn't too keen on some of his policies, but John McCain is a good and decent man. I have always thought that.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    True that...and also true that the RNC is so weak, so desperate, so leaderless and so pathetic that they are feebly trying hard to connect Obama with anything Blagojevich.

    It seems that the GOP have really hit rock bottom, or is it actually possible they can fall even further?

    A very wise Republican has some words that the party should heed:

    And this is why McCain lost...
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    No his acting like a bitter and rabid partisan ass along with Palin is what made him lose.

    His comments today ring true and the GOP should listen.

    Would you please explain what you mean by your comment? How does what McCain said today explain why he lost?

    John McCain is good, decent, and appreciated by everyone, as long as he loses the election.

    This is exactly why John McSame will lose his senate seat in Arizona, and good f***ing riddance.

    McCain is a good man. An ill tempered ol' coot, maybe, but a very good man. I think we could use a little temper now and then.

    However, judged by the team he surrounded himself with, might have given us some insight as to how he would formulate his administration. He falls victim to bad advice. The oval office is no place to let that happen. (We see what happened last time. )

    I think, McCain left to his OWN devices, he would have stood a better chance at defeating Obama. But, alas, hindsite is 20/20.
