The President of the United States has failed at everything, at least in the mind of John McCain. Frodo finds himself wondering about the emotional stability of the frequent critic from the hallways of the United States Senate. McCain, it seems, lives only to decipher Libya, Egypt, Syria, North Korea, and Ukraine (among others) as examples of the Obama disaster in American Foreign Policy. All one must do, according to Frodo, is to wait for the President to make a comment, suggestion, threat, commitment, promise, or whatever, and McCain will be there to call the action as "wrong, again." Could it be that the old man is merely suffering from a case of sour grapes?
McCain was eighth from the bottom of his graduating class at the Naval Academy. McCain was shot down during the Vietnam War by an enemy who had no Air Force. McCain's marriage came unglued when he returned from captivity. McCain selected Sarah Palin to be his running mate on the Republican Presidential Ticket. McCain "suspended" his campaign in order to participate in the decision-making addressing the Great Recession (Ed. Note--McCain offered no input and was virtually silent throughout). Frodo could go on and on, and on, but his point is that those who live in glass houses, twelve at last count, need to realize that their contributions, sadly, ended a long time ago.
Four Americans died inside an American Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. McCain and his minions from South Carolina and New Hampshire (Frodo offers 25 cents in cash to anyone who can name the Manchester Minion without searching "Google") have introduced the incident as some sort of scandalous effort to ensure the President's re-election. In truth, none have mentioned the loss of more than 200 US Marines in a place called Beirut when Ronald "Plastic Man" Reagan was President. In fact, the murderers, be they terrorists or extremists, have never been called to justice.
Maybe Daryl Issa would join with McCain and solve that one for us? How does the saying go, "Inquiring Minds Want to Know." Which probably explains exactly what Frodo's point was from the very beginning.
