McCain Denounces Morsi Power Grab

    Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., the ranking member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, says he would do all he could to block the nomination of United Nations Amb. Susan Rice to replace Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton because of comments she made after the deadly Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, at a press conference at the Capitol in Washington, Wednesday, Nov. 14, 2012.  President Barack Obama later responded in a news conference saying Rice's critics should "go after me" — not her — if they have issues with the administration's handling of the deadly attacks on Americans in Benghazi, Libya.

    The John McCain train rolled Sunday, as he criticized Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi for a controversial power grab that has sparked days of protest in the country. “This kind of power is unacceptable to the United States of America,” McCain said in his appearance on Fox. McCain also said that U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice still has a chance to woo him for the top job at the State Department. The Arizona senator has been nipping at Rice’s heels regarding the attack on the American Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, saying earlier this month that he would do “everything in my power” to block her from becoming the next secretary of state.
