Lou Dobbs has “A few thoughts now on Congressional obstruction. The Democrat kind is annoying enough, but I’m talking tonight about two Senators who’ve lost their way, again, and are obnoxiously obstructionist. Senators McCain and Graham attacking President Trump’s executive order pausing refugee admission and immigration from seven mostly Muslim countries.”
“Never shy about using hyperbole in their caustic rhetoric,” Dobbs notes, “the two make the spurious claim that the President’s order to protect Americans ‘may do more to help terrorist recruitment than to improve our security.’ The motivation of McCain and Graham to play curmudgeon on seemingly every issue is beyond me, particularly because they gain nothing but mockery of those who disagree with them.”
Mr. Dobbs points out, “It puts them in company with head clown Senator Chuck Schumer as well as they work against President Trump and the national interest. McCain has only begrudgingly supported Rex Tillerson to be Secretary of State. The Senator has already warned president Trump against lifting Russian sanctions, calling such a move reckless, even though it hasn’t been taken and he doesn’t know, if it is taken, under what terms.”
“And he warned,” says Dobbs, with a mostly straight face, “that renegotiating NAFTA could have serious consequences, as if having NAFTA didn’t have its own set of serious consequences. And the President’s withdrawal from TPP, he says, is ‘harmful’ and a ‘serious mistake.'”
Dobbs says, “To be clear, I believe he could hardly be more in error. Graham and McCain mystify all with their policy choices, much like the time the two GOP’ers went to Cairo to push ‘president’ Obama’s plan, that with President Sisi to include the Muslim Brotherhood in his new government.”
“But Senator McCain’s rhetoric of the past few weeks,” adds Dobbs, “at least answers one lingering ‘what if.’ Had the election gone the other way in 2008, we clearly would have had a third Bush term. Regrettably for the Senator, he’s not president. And fortunately, very fortunately for the country, Donald Trump is.
