McCain Smacks Down Half-Baked Nationalism and Reminds Us Why We Need American Leadership

On Monday evening, Senator John McCain received the National Constitution Center’s Liberty Medal.

After receiving his honor, Senator McCain went into why the world needs strong American leadership and not as he called…

“To fear the world we have organized and led for three-quarters of a century, to abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership and our duty to remain ‘the last best hope of earth’ for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solve problems is as unpatriotic as an attachment to any other tired dogma of the past that Americans consigned to the ash heap of history,” he said.
