    Gohmert Outclasses Trump, Gets It Right On McCain

    Gohmert Outclasses Trump, Gets It Right On McCain


    While the leftwing media and their do-boys in the Republican establishment thrash about trying to outdo themselves defending the indefensible Senator John McCain in his battle of words with Donald Trump, principled limited government constitutional conservative Rep. Louie Gohmert quietly got things right on McCain and his record as a Senator.


    "As far as Sen. McCain, I have nothing but respect and great sympathy for the pain and suffering he endured … but that doesn't mean that you get to become a senator and ruin the country," Gohmert said Monday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

    Gohmert's comments came in the wake of the uproar over Donald Trump's comments about the war record of McCain, who spent more than five years as a prisoner in North Vietnam.

    Gohmert said he wasn’t going to be the auditor of who owes whom and apology in the Trump – McCain smackdown, but he sure has it right on McCain’s record as a Senator.

    "It [distinguished military service] may give you a chance to be a senator, but once you're there, your merits have to stand on their own. In recent years he's been pro-amnesty, he's been wrong on so many things,” said Congressman Gohmert of Senator McCain.

    This would be the same Senator John McCain who advocated cutting-off American aid to Egypt after the popular revolt that ousted anti-American Muslim Brotherhood-aligned President Mohammed Morsi, and replaced him with pro-Western Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.

    And Rep. Gohmert nailed McCain’s rewriting of the history of his policy advice on Syria, "He's been saying, 'Well gee if we had bombed in Syria when I said we should have, we wouldn't be in this mess.' No, it'd be worse, because he wanted to bomb Assad which would've meant we'd turned Syria over to ISIS."
    And, while Rep. Gohmert didn’t say it quite this directly, we will: McCain’s favorite solution to every international crisis – American military intervention – has proven wrong more times than we can count.
    In the lead-up to the war that deposed Saddam Hussein that led to the current chaos in Iraq McCain was wrong about the links between Hussein and al Qaeda.

    He was wrong about what it would take to stabilize the Iraq after Hussein was deposed – and it is still an unstable wreck after the loss of over 4,400 American lives and the physical and mental maiming of countless others.

    Senator McCain wrote the resolution in support of the troop surge that was supposed to stabilize Iraq by disarming militias, creating a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural power sharing government, splitting oil revenues, etc. – none of which happened because Americans could not impose it on Iraq from McCain’s Capitol Hill office.

    The Obama “surge” in Afghanistan?

    McCain was wrong on that; the Afghani's are incapable of holding the territory we help them regain, as our own military leaders have admitted.

    Libya, and McCain’s demand we send arms to “insurgents” opposed to Muammar Gaddafi?

    Libya is now in chaos, ISIS is beheading Christians on the beach and America’s consulate in Benghazi was attacked and sacked resulting in the deaths of our Ambassador and three other brave Americans.

    And in Syria – another place McCain advocated American military involvement – the very individuals McCain had his picture taken with were “rebels” who turned out to be kidnappers and terrorists likely aligned with the Islamic State*

    We’re with Rep. Louie Gohmert on this one – we’re not going to be the auditors of who owes whom an apology, but McCain’s distinguished war record does not erase his record of being wrong on practically every national security matter – particularly in the Middle East – he has weighed in on in the past decade.
