Senator John McCain wants to make sure his fellow Republicans don't vote against attacking Syria simply because they don't like the President. "It would undermine the credibility of the United States of America and the president of the United States. None of us want that." So now you're worried about the 'credibility of the United States', Senator. Hooray for you. Now you worry about US credibility?
Your Republican party, without any disagreement from you, has already gotten the US credit rating downgraded. You have already dragged seniors and disabled veterans through two horribly worrying debt ceiling crises - quite unnecessarily, since the national debt is falling. Your party has shown a persistent desire to do away with Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. Your party wants to cut food stamps that many minimum wage workers depend on. And now your majority in the House of Representatives is considering shutting down the government rather than funding the Affordable Care Act. You aren't interested in repealing the terrible, unjust Sequester - except when it affects you.
Do you think other countries have not noticed how we're treating our own people? Do you think the great and thinly veiled disrespect for our President among Republicans hasn't made a blip on the international radar?
Maybe you could make a 'grand bargain' with the American people. Strengthen Social Security, and we'll let you drop one missile on Syria. Raise the minimum wage, and you could drop another one. - You see where I'm going with this. War helps millionaires and nobody else. Stand up for Americans first before you try rescuing anybody else.
