    Lie much? Or just senile?

    McCain: You ‘can’t name a single issue’ I’ve flip-flopped on since 2000

    During an interview this afternoon with Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), a reporter from local Washington, D.C. area CBS affiliate told McCain that some “commentators” and even some “personal friends” have asked, “Where is the John McCain from 2000?” The reporter then asked, “Did that guy go away? Has something changed?” But McCain took issue with the premise of the reporter’s question, claiming that nothing has changed since 2000:

    MCCAIN: You’ll have to tell me what’s changed. I love it when they say, “Oh McCain has changed.” And I say, “What have I changed on?” They can’t name a single issue or they’ll name an issue and its false. I’m the same guy. I’m proud of our campaign. ​

    The flip flop on the torture issue pissed me off, a man who was tortured, uses his being tortured as a political issue.. and will not back stopping torture by this country... all the while we should all hope that there is not a full fledged war as any hope of invoking the Geneva convention just went down the shytter..
