McCain tells Obama to "get over your temper tantrum"

Pretty funny coming from a guy who recently told a group of citizens: "get out of here you low life scum".

Grumpy old man McCain is a great one to tell somebody else to cool it.

McCain to Obama on Netanyahu: ‘Get over your temper tantrum, Mr. President’

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., ripped President Barack Obama on Sunday over the administration’s response to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s election victory.

“The president should get over it,” McCain said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “Get over it — get over your temper tantrum, Mr. President. It’s time we work together with our Israeli friends and try to stem this tide of ISIS and Iranian movement throughout the region.”

Last week, Obama said that he is concerned about Netanyahu’s comments during the campaign opposing the creation of a Palestinian state.

“We continue to believe that a two-state solution is the only way for the long-term security of Israel,” Obama told the Huffington Post Friday. “Given his statements prior to the election, it is going to be hard to find a path where people are seriously believing that negotiations are possible.

“We take him at his word when he said that it wouldn’t happen during his prime ministership,” the president continued. “So that’s why we’ve got to evaluate what other options are available to make sure that we don’t see a chaotic situation in the region.”

“The least of your problems are what Bibi Netanyahu said in a political campaign,” McCain said Sunday. “I think the president maybe shouldn’t like it, but thousands are being slaughtered by ISIS. The Iranians have taken over the major capitols of Lebanon, Syria, Beirut and Baghdad. It pales in significance to the situation which continues to erode throughout the Middle East, and it puts America at risk. … The president has his priorities so screwed up that it’s unbelievable.”

McCain said Obama is letting his personal problems with Netanyahu get in the way of policy.

“Either that or he’s delusional. I’m not sure which,” he said.

The Arizona senator said if an Obama-backed resolution for Palestinian statehood is approved by the U.N. Security Council, Congress should reconsider its funding of the United Nations.

“It would be a violation because the president’s anger over a statement by Bibi, by the prime minister of Israel,” McCain said. “It would contradict the last at least 10 presidents of the United States.”

John needs to remember to take his hypertension meds.

Or have his caregiver step up the dosage.

Re: McCain tells Obama to "get over your temper tantrum"

You mean this John McCain?  And that is just from back when he was running for president, when arguably he should have been on his best behavior.

Yeah, he should be telling people to act right. Sheesh. The man's known for his tantrums.

If President Obama is throwing a tantrum, then may all the parents of children who throw them be blessed with that type of tantrum. From what I've seen, he has just stated how he feels on what is being done. He hasn't even really raised his voice, as far as I know. Has anybody seen otherwise?

Not sure many take McCain very seriously anymore. 

At one  time I thought he was just the maverick (years ago) that the Republican party needed. That person left my radar a long time ago.

Re: McCain tells Obama to "get over your temper tantrum"

Let's summarize.
Israel spends months meddling in, and tryng to sabotage another country's negotiations with Iran.

The US Congress essentially endorses the candidacy of Netanyahu, thus breaking with longstanding precedent to not meddle in another country's elections,,,,, just so they can show their disresepct for the President. They unwittingly make support for Israel a partisan issue.

Netanyahu, in a 48 hour span around the elections goes from supporting a two state solution to repudiating a two state solution, back to supporting a two state solution.

On election day a panicked Netanyahu issues a call for support, claiming that "Too many" Arab Israelis are voting.

Israeli treatment of Palestinians is so brutal, that in the same year that the Charlie Hebdo attacks occured, Israel is only slightly more popular with Europeans than is ISIS.

And Senator McCain's trenchant analysis is that the President is "having a temper tantrum".


Does John think he's going to face another tea party challenger in his next primary?

We live in a time in which decent and otherwise sensible people are surrendering too easily to the hectoring of morons or extremists.

Re: McCain tells Obama to "get over your temper tantrum"

I LOL when I heard what he said.  McCain is the last person on earth who should criticize another person for having a "temper tantrum". 

This seems to be the MO for many Republicans.  Take your own glaring faults and project them upon your enemy, then attack them for it.
