Senator John McCain conducted a townhall meeting in Phoenix last night and probably wishes he had stayed in Washington.
Sen. John McCain, whose endorsement of President Barack Obama’s plan to launch military strikes against Syria provided the president a key Republican backer, faced vocal opponents of military action during a town hall in Arizona Thursday.
McCain has long advocated a more muscular American approach toward Syria, calling for a plan to oust President Bashar al-Assad from power. But on Thursday many people who showed up to a town hall in Phoenix said that getting more involved in the civil war would lead to unintended consequences.
“We didn’t send you to make war for us. We sent you to stop the war,” one man said to applause.
Another man, holding a bag of marshmallows, declared Congress was going soft on its duties to represent voters.
