Black Democrat Says Media Should be Listening to Him Instead of John McCain

On the issue of foreign affairs, Senator John McCain (R-AZ) has been wrong far more often Meeksthan he’s been right. While appearing on CNN last week, McCain called for most of Pres. Obama’s national security staff to be fired and for the U.S. to increase its presence in Iraq now that the country has descended into sectarian strife. Given McCain’s track record, Rep. Gregory Meeks (D-NY) can’t understand why the media continues to take McCain seriously on foreign policy.

As Meeks pointed out while appearing on MSNBC’s  “All In” with Chris Hayes on Monday evening, Meeks voted against the Iraq war and the media isn’t asking for his opinion.

While those who were completely wrong about Iraq, such as writer William Kristol and former envoy to Iraq Paul Bremmer, are being feverishly booked on mainstream media outlets, those who were right aren’t getting requests from media at all.

Hayes asked Meeks, “Is your office getting called to come on television to talk about Iraq?”

Meeks confirmed that no one’s beαting down his door to get an interview on Iraq, while hawks like McCain seem to be getting an undeserved amount of media attention.

“Why does the news media go to John McCain to ask him any time there’s anything happening, because you know he’s going to be, ‘go to war, send troops.’? It just doesn’t make sense,” Meeks said. “I would like to hear from other individuals, and there’s plenty on the Hill, who have a contrary view. They should be interviewed and asked about which way to go because they did get it right.”

Speaking of John McCain specifically, Meeks added, “Thank God the American people were smart enough not to elect him president of the United States.”

  1. War will be forever in Iraq and the Middle East, this country can respond like a 911 call until we go broke, still they will need our help. What about helping the taxpayers who are footing the cost for these wars, up until a few weeks ago America, wouldn't even help veterans of war. in a decent way, what about crime and terrorism that's happening in our own country, let's sweep around I own front door first.

  2. So correct Robertson, we have our values in the wrong place……typical.

  3. The cohorts are in cohoots with those who look and act like them hypocrites. How many americans are aware john mccain was captured durin the Vietnam war as an airman and told the veitnam regime that the US airman were coming in bombing their troops from a different direction! Yes u heard right that guy mccain told. As a result of tellin over 65% of US airmen was killed in action how did he become a us representative? Wasnt charged with treason or jailed not even so much court martialed. His opinion is that of a RAT he sold out and folded due to the pressure of torture and thousands of american lives were lost mccain is soft as baby shit. He has been lying since he been in office he even lied durin the race for the presidency rember “joe the plumber” he wsd exposed and nothing was done the amerikkkan govt are liars they have lied about damn near everthing and get away with it. It does not surprise me what is surprising is how white amerikkka make him out to b a war hero and he actually snitched and destroyed many serviceman lives, who would elected this fool.
