Meghan McCain to Cheney: ‘You had your 8 years. Go away.’
Meghan McCain expressed dissatisfaction with some former Bush officials who have criticized Obama during his first 100 days. “It’s hard for me — it’s very unprecedented for someone like karl rove or dick cheney to be criticizing the president. i just — my criticism is just, you know, you had your eight years, go away,” McCain told hosts of ABC’s The View.
Speaking to Washington Post’s Mary Ann Akers, MSNBC’s Contessa Brewer said viewers were questioning McCain Republican creditials. “A lot of people who are contacting me on this issue of Meghan McCain do not buy the fact that she’s a conservative,” remark Brewer.
“That’s the main criticism. But, of course, that’s all coming from the people she’s mainly attacking. I mean, she is saying that the Republican Party needs to clean house — that people like Karl Rove and Ann Coulter are old has-beens,” explained Akers.
