Former President Barack Obama on the Passing of Senator John McCain

Washington, DC...John McCain and I were members of different generations, came from completely different backgrounds, and competed at the highest level of politics. But we shared, for all our differences, a fidelity to something higher – the ideals for which generations of Americans and immigrants alike have fought, marched, and sacrificed. We saw our political battles, even, as a privilege, something noble, an opportunity to serve as stewards of those high ideals at home, and to advance them around the world. We saw this country as a place where anything is possible – and citizenship as our patriotic obligation to ensure it forever remains that way.




Few of us have been tested the way John once was, or required to show the kind of courage that he did. But all of us can aspire to the courage to put the greater good above our own. At John’s best, he showed us what that means. And for that, we are all in his debt. Michelle and I send our most heartfelt condolences to Cindy and their family.

I so very much miss eloquence and class in the White House, as opposed to chants and insults. Rest in peace, Senator, and thank you for making a difference for all Americans, while doing so with humbleness and dignity.

        I don't care what Obummer has to say about anything! He was a disgrace then and continues to be a disgrace now. His disdain for our country during his reign was embarrassing and went twice as long as it should have. The only problem with the McCain/Sarah Palin ticket was that he was on top rather than her.

        Can’t blame you, after all you’d just embarrass yourself after Barack has been up in there.

    This is what a leader looks like. Obama is missed so much by the educated, enlightened, forward-thinking Americans—so much it hurts. It hurts to see what Trump has done to denigrate and embarrass the office of the Presidency.
    I am so glad he is staying away from McCain’s funeral. He has no business there, and he is not welcome. But, how sad is that—the fact that a sitting President would have that reputation as to not be present to honor such a man as John McCain?
    McCain will live on, but Trump’s days are numbered...

      Contrast
      Posted on: 2018-08-26 12:03:07   By: Anonymous
       
      The contrast between Obama and Dump is stark.
      One well educated, eloquent, the other, an ignorant bully.
      The dump crowd is the underbelly of America, they have a disdain for facts, intelligence, history, diplomacy.
      America is under a Constitutional crisis due to a stolen election perpetrated by the GOP states who are denying legal voters their vote by many means, Crosscheck list, broken voting machines in minority precincts, or mere removal of voters off lists for no reason except they are democrats.
      America's sacred vote is stolen by traitors who place $ and power over Democracy, which so many died for. They have no morals. They prefer a traitor for Russia over America, be proud of your traitor Dumpers.

      Constitutional Crisis

      What we are watching is not new. All tyrants use the same tools to gain, hold power.
      They repeat over and over the news is fake, lies.
      They say the news is the enemy of the people.
      They support a censored press.
      They repeat the justice mechanism is rigged against them.
      They sow distrust of the very pillars of society.
      They urge the people to rebel against the pillars of society.
      They call themselves "populists".

      Those who have used this-
      Hitler
      Stalin
      Putin
      Duterte
      Ergodan
      Assad
      Trump

      We are in a Constitutional crisis , which is caused by the tyrannical hopes of Trump.
      He is challenging our Justice dept , and other agencies as Nixon did.
      Aided by Fox news , and alt right pundits , the Republican party which appears to prefer Russia over America , it is supporting the attempted destruction of our Constitutional rule of law, and Justice system.

      Now is the time for all good people to come to the aid of our Constitution and rule of law before it is damaged beyond repair.
