"A wise and frugal government which shall restrain men
from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government."

Senator John McCain Praises Obama For Afghanistan Trip

Senator John McCain is once again showing the class that every last Senator and Member of the House should show when the President travels overseas no matter the party of the President.  This is about America not Republican or Democrat or who can score points.

Republicans are now acting like none of our Presidents made any trips at all for political purposes which is about as hypocritical as you can get.  What is the most hypocritical is all the comments that Obama was using the Seal Team attack on Bin Laden's compound that end up in the death of Bin Laden when Romney who had absolutely zero to do with any of it goes to a New York fire station to celebrate the one year anniversary of Bin Laden's death.  Romney is a walking hypocrite as in 2007 he said:

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney criticized Democrat Barack Obama on Friday for vowing to strike al Qaeda targets inside Pakistan if necessary as the Obama camp issued a strident defense of his plan.

"I do not concur in the words of Barack Obama in a plan to enter an ally of ours... I don't think those kinds of comments help in this effort to draw more friends to our effort," Romney told reporters on the campaign trail.
A little over four years ago Romney is saying he would not launch an attack into another Country to strike at al Qaeda but today he says all Presidents would have done that.  The lies just keep coming from Romney but the RNC expects conservatives to just fall in line when we know that Romney should have never run with his liberal baggage and statements.  His campaign and the establishment act like his previous comments meant nothing.  How can you be sure what he believes?
John McCain Praises Obama For Afghanistan Trip

John McCain is "pleased" to learn about President Obama's surprise visit to Afghanistan. Obama arrived in Kabul on Tuesday, the eve of the anniversary Osama bin Laden's death, to meet with President Hamid Karzai about the presence of U.S. troops in the country. He will deliver a televised address from Afghanistan at 7:30 p.m. ET. 
McCain released a statement praising Obama for his commitment to a "a secure and free Afghanistan":   
“I am pleased that the President has traveled to Afghanistan. This is a significant opportunity for him to hear directly from our military commanders and troops on the ground about the significant progress we are making in this fight. 
“It is also important because President Obama and President Karzai will announce the U.S.-Afghanistan Strategic Partnership Agreement, which will define the long-term political, economic, and military commitment between our countries. While I will carefully examine the details of this agreement, I am hopeful that it will send a signal to friends and enemies in the region that the United States is committed to a secure and free Afghanistan. 
“I hope the President's speech tonight will emphasize the degree of our commitment in Afghanistan, rather than the plans for withdrawal. I would urge the President to return from this visit and spend more time speaking directly with the American people about the vital national security interests at stake in Afghanistan and the need for the United States to remain strongly engaged there in the years ahead.”
