McCain defends Obama, gives him ‘benefit of the doubt’ on Benghazi

It seems that Republican Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) has made a habit out of defending President Barack Obama.

McCain famously came to Obama’s defense against a so called “islamaphobic” supporter during a 2008 campaign rally, Mediaite notes, and is doing so once again on ABC’s This Week Sunday.

When asked to respond to Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK) invoking the “I word,” McCain said:

“With all due respect, I think this is a serious issue. I will even give the president the benefit of the doubt on some of these things. We need a select committee.”

His was a little less generous toward former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as he called for her to be brought back for another hearing.

“Her response before the foreign relations committee, ‘who cares,’ ‘who cares how this happened,’ in a rather emotional way…a lot of people care in respect to the Secretary of State.”
