John McCain is being John McCain!
New York Post reports a congressional defeat for President Obama’s Syrian strike would be “catastrophic,” his old foe, Sen. John McCain, warned yesterday.Obama secured McCain’s support for military action against Bashar al-Assad’s brutal regime as the administration prepared for a full-court press on Capitol Hill to win authorization.“A rejection of this resolution would be catastrophic, not just for him but for the institution of the presidency and the credibility of the United States,” McCain (R-Ariz.) said after meeting at the White House yesterday with the man who defeated him in the 2008 presidential election.Obama will roll out his big guns — Secretary of State John Kerry, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel and Joint Chiefs Chairman Martin Dempsey — when they plead the administration’s case this afternoon before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Kerry will testify before the House Foreign Affairs Committee tomorrow.But McCain said there was “a long way to go” to get the Syrian resolution passed.More here
