The president has become more centrist, which makes him easier to work with, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said Thursday.And notice that he praised Obama for his phony pep-rally speech, but didn't find the time or courage to defend Sarah Palin from the vicious, slanderous attacks launched against her in the wake of the Giffords shooting.
Speaking with Bloomberg Television a day after a private meeting with President Obama, McCain said he could picture working with Obama on several issues going forward.
"I think there's a number of issues we could work on together, and I think it's pretty clear that the president has really pivoted to a much more centrist position, which I think makes it much more for us easier to work with him," McCain said.
...Since the 2008 election, McCain has been one of Obama's biggest critics, particularly on government spending and repealing the "Don't ask, don't tell" policy barring gays from serving openly in the military. After the attempted assassination of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.), though, McCain praised Obama's speech at the memorial service for the victims of the shooting.
McCain said he thought he and Obama could work together going forward on issues like immigration reform (amnesty) and enhanced rescission.
Yeah John, if you're so delusional to think Obama is a centrist I have some ocean front property in Arizona to sell you.
