A LIAR exposed: Flip-flopping HYPOCRITE John McCain is now FOR torture!
Anti-torture bill still passes but not before we are shown John McCain’s TRUE colors…..that he is PRO-torture!

Yesterday the Senate voted on a bill that would no longer allow the CIA to use harsh interrogation techniques on terrorism suspects. By a vote of 51-45 (in favor of the bill), it was passed Wednesday. One vote you didn’t see in FAVOR of the bill was that of warmongering, Neo-con, flip-flopping, hypocrite John McCain, who, despite claiming to be a victim of torture HIMSELF, voted FOR torture.
Also, as if it wasn’t enough that McCain is a “so-called” victim of torture (so he says), he also claimed to be AGAINST torture at one time. Ten years ago? Five years ago? ONE year ago? Nope. Try 2 ½ months ago! John McCain stood on a stage in St. Petersburg, Florida on November 28, 2007 during the CNN YouTube debate and gave an anti-torture speech so convincing that it almost made me think he was actually against it! Here’s what hypocrite McCain said in this debate: (the bad grammar in the dialogue isn't my writing. This is how McCain talks)
“Well Governor (Romney), I’m astonished that you haven’t found out what waterboarding is. …I’m astonished that you would think such a torture would be inflicted upon anybody in our cap---who we are held captive, and anyone could believe that’s not torture. It’s in violation of the Geneva Conventions..it’s in violation of existing law, and Governor, let me tell you, if we’re going to get the high ground in this world and we’re gonna be America that we have cherished and loved for more than 200 years---we’re not going to torture people. We’re not gonna do what Pol Pot did. We’re not gonna do what’s being done to Burmese monks as we speak. And I suggest that you talk to retired military officers and active duty military officers like Colin Powell and others---and how in the world can anybody think that kind of thing could be inflicted by Americans on people who are held in our custody is absolutely beyond me.”
Then, in the same debate (about 1 minute later) McCain said this, “I would hope that we would understand, my friends, that life is not 24 and Jack Bauer. Life is interrogation techniques which are humane and yet effective. And I just came back from visiting a prison in Iraq. The army general there said that techniques under the Army Field Manual are working and working effectively, and he didn’t think they need to do anything else. My friends, this is what America is all about. This is a defining issue. And clearly, we should be able, if we want to be commander in chief of the U.S. armed forces, then take a definite and positive position on, and that is we will never allow torture to take place in the United States of America.”
Don’t believe me? Watch the video:
Here is the lying prick John McCain pretending to be vehemently against torture
Keep in mind he said this just 78 days ago.
You can go to the U.S. Senate website here to view yesterday’s vote and see for yourself that hypocrite McCain voted NO on the anti-torture bill.
Here is a partial screen shot from the website for the sheeple that are too lazy or apathetic to click a link
What kind of person is so adamant about an issue like torture and then just 78 days later votes against a bill that would outlaw the CIA from using waterboarding as an interrogation technique? I’ll tell you what kind of person it is: A deranged sycophant that has completely lost his damned mind (if one was ever there to begin with). And THIS is who people are voting for? Someone who completely trashes and disregards his own morals and principles in less than 3 months? Bush isn’t even THIS bad!
McCain has even rebuked Rudy Giuliani on this same issue. Now he votes FOR people to be waterboarded? This is a very dangerous man. This is who people want in control of this country? I wouldn’t put him in control of a damned Taco Bell!
McCain has not only betrayed the American people, but his country, his party and himself. He’s a liar, a hypocrite, a sell-out, a psychopath and a COWARD. He should be locked up in an asylum----straight jacket and all. This is exactly why his own fellow soldiers in Vietnam are going public now and telling the truth about him; that he was never tortured and that he would gladly tell the enemy any information they asked for, to avoid torture. It’s all making sense now.
Thank God the bill still passed, even without a vote from this country’s biggest betrayer and coward, John “PUSSY” McCain. Of course, our lunatic-in-chief will no doubt veto the bill----making this whole thing moot. But that brings up another point, and more proof that John McCain is, by every definition of the word, INSANE….why did he vote “no” on a bill that he should highly suspect that his psycho buddy (Bush) will veto?
Who in the hell wants 4 years of this? Or 4 minutes for that matter? The utter irony here is that if McCain is elected President---we will have to suffer through 4 years of what McCain now advocates…..torture.
