Barack Obama criticized comments by Republican candidate Donald Trump about war veteran John McCain, saying presidential debates deserve better: ‘We’re creating a culture that is not conducive to good policy or good politics … I want to make sure I’m turning over the keys to somebody who is serious about the serious problems that the country faces and the world faces.”
Who might Obama be referring to when he said ‘somebody who is serious,’ Hillary Clinton who deleted thousands of emails, and wiped her server to cover her and Obama’s involvement in Benghazi?
Obama is defending John McCain?
As for John ‘Songbird’ McCain, he spilled his guts to get out of being tortured. There is evidence that McCain received ‘special’ medical treatment from a Soviet physician and other ‘considerations.’
After McCain was out of the hospital, he continued cooperating with the North Vietnamese for a period of three years. He made radio broadcasts for the communists and met with foreign delegations, including the Cubans. He was interviewed by at least two North Vietnamese generals one of whom was Vietnam’s national hero, General Vo Nguyen Giap.
To this day McCain works hard to keep files sealed about POWs left behind in Vietnam. The group ‘Vietnam Veterans Against McCain’speaks openly about McCain’s so called heroism as a POW in the Vietnam conflict.
ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia (AP) — Insisting that Americans deserve better, President Barack Obama chided Republicans Mike Huckabee, Donald Trump and Ted Cruz on Monday for a series of campaign-trail attacks that he said would be “ridiculous if it weren’t so sad.”
In some of his first commentary on the budding race to replace him, Obama accused the candidates of violating a time-honored American tradition of not playing “fast and loose” on topics of grave concern like foreign policy. And he said that regardless of which party wins the White House, he wants to ensure he’s turning over the keys to someone capable of seriousness and honesty.
“We have robust debates, we look at the facts,” Obama said during a news conference in Ethiopia. “We just don’t fling out ad hominem attacks like that because it doesn’t help inform the American people.”
Obama has largely avoided wading into the increasingly turbulent debate over who should be the next president. But during a news conference with Ethiopia’s prime minister, Obama was asked about criticism from Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor, and seemed eager to add his take.
