John McCain vs. Angry Wingnuts Who Are Suddenly Anti-War

What a difference a black President makes

John McCain was raked over the coals by his own constituents in Arizona yesterday, for his support of military intervention in Syria.

Witness the amazing phenomenon of Republicans opposed to military action:

McCain, one of the most vocal proponents for military action in Syria, was berated at two events held in Phoenix and Tucson, Ariz. In Phoenix, McCain was shouted down angrily by a man.

“You don’t respect our view,” the man yelled. “We didn’t send you to get war for us! We sent you to stop the war!”

“What you’re doing, sir, is not just disrespectful to me but you’re disrespectful to others who would like their opinion and their views heard,” McCain told the man.

A woman there urged McCain to search for a diplomatic solution in Syria, telling the senator that “we cannot afford to shed more Syrian blood.” The woman’s mention of the word “diplomacy” prompted McCain to raise his eyebrows. At one point during the Phoenix event, a man stood next to McCain while holding a sign that read, “Don’t Bomb Syria!!!”

These confrontations clearly unnerved McCain, so much that he felt compelled to mollify the angry wingnut contingent with some impeachment talk.

Sen. John McCain warns President Barack Obama could face impeachment if he decides to put “boots on the ground” in Syria.

The Republican Arizona senator made the comments to KFYI Thursday following a spirited town hall in Phoenix that focused on Syria.

“The fact is [Syrian President] Bashar Assad has massacred 100,000 people. The conflict is spreading … The Russians are all in, the Iranians are all in, and it’s an unfair fight,” McCain told KFYI’s Mike Broomhead. “And no one wants American boots on the ground. Nor will there be American boots on the ground because there would be an impeachment of the president if they did that.”
