Sen. John McCain on Tuesday accused Democrats of "hypocrisy" for opposing the appointment of a special counsel to investigate recent national security leaks, saying they supported such independent investigations in the past when Republicans were in the White House.
McCain's comments came on the same day he pushed for a Senate vote calling for a special counsel but was blocked by Democrats. He spoke to reporters after being told Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein, D-California, preferred the investigation be carried out by two U.S. attorneys appointed by Attorney General Eric Holder.
"I am shocked, shocked. I am shocked to hear Sen. Feinstein now opposes" a special counsel, McCain said in a voice thick with sarcasm.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, defended the Democrats' handling of the leaks and said it was the actions of Republicans like McCain that are "strictly political."

You completed several fine points there. I did a search on the matter and found nearly all persons will have the same opinion with your blog.

This is what you get, Dems, when you nominate a junior senator for President. Told you so.
OMG = Obama Must Go!
DOWN with King Barack the First!
Its interesting that everyone assumes the leaks came from the white house, don't you know that congressional leaders get the same briefings? The leaks could just as easily come from them.
Time for this angry old man to retire before he does any more damage to his reputation than he already has. Guess what John, you lost and its over.
Thus spake John "Popular Mechanics" McCain.
McCain should have retired two elections ago. He's a joke.
He's also one of the people privy to the information that was leaked – which makes HIM as likely a source for the leaks as anyone.
No sorry to say I just read some more inside articles. It was Obama doing some dirty things as usual and trying to keep it in secret. When will you people learn he is against you not for you. McCain is only trying to bring the truth to the American people about our great leader.
its like watergate
the obama leaks will add to the many reasons why obama will not be elected . people involved in leaking the info will go to jail.
He needs to resign but people just keep thinking he is a saint or something and he just keeps lying or paying his way out of his dirty stuff he does.
Now let's see, Andy...we got some chickens mission' hyeah...let's have Amos see if deys in da lodge hall.
I hate Democrats, but I REALLY hate Republicans.
