Huh? John McCain hints that Muslim Brotherhood not that powerful in Egypt

In October of 2008, then presidential candidate Senator John McCain told an audience at a town hall that they have, “no reason to be scared” of an Obama presidency. Then, in 2009, he told another town hall audience that he believed Obama “respects the Constitution of the United States.” Two years later, in April of 2011, McCain visited Benghazi, Libya and told Al-Jazeera that the Libyan rebels were his “heroes.” Not long after that, McCain’s heroes planted the Al-Qaeda flag atop a Libyan courthouse.

Now this, via Washington Examiner:

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., talked down fear of the Muslim Brotherhood’s control in Egypt, as he defended United States foreign aid to Egypt, suggesting that secularists might block the worst forms of Sharia law.

“I’m not clear whether — how the Muslim Brotherhood is going to be,” McCain told Sean Hannity last night. “There are other representatives in parliament. I know that they will be an elected government,” he said.

Let’s take stock, shall we? Americans are scared of Obama in record numbers, affronts against the Constitution have become too difficult to keep track of, and McCain’s “heroes” are America’s enemies.

Don’t worry, I’m sure he’s right about the Muslim Brotherhood.
