John McCain – Maverick
Tuesday, October 10, 2006
(SNN Washington) When asked about the President's actions pertaining to North Korea, Press Secretary Tony Snow responded that the question was silly. However, Senate Majority Maverick John McCain has different ideas.
A reporter asked the White House press secretary today if there's anything the president thinks he should have done differently with respect to North Korea. "Oh, my goodness," Snow responded. "It's a silly question. I have said this repeatedly from this podium. You need to give presidents the benefit of the doubt when national security is involved."
However, Senator John McCain stood up to the Executive Branch once again and placed blame firmly on the President. "I would remind Senator (Hillary) Clinton and other Democrats critical of the Bush administration's policies that the framework agreement her husband's administration negotiated was a failure," McCain said at a news conference.
