Sen. McCain responds to Obama's address, says he wants Gadhafi out

President Obama addressed the nation about the U.S.'s involvement in Libya Monday and said the goal there is regime change without force.

Senator John McCain (R-AZ), Ranking Member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, has criticized the President's statement and says military force against the leader shouldn't be taken off the table. Sen. McCain talks to Christine Romans about Monday's address.

    why do we really care what mccain has to say? he seems to love to go on camera or constantly on the sunday news shows to give his opinion. maybe he should just do his job in the senate and fade away......

    Big John, you have served our country well. Past tense. So are your ideas. Past making sense. Cowboy diplomacy cannot be US diplomacy. Some folks shoot back, dude.

    Moving on. A measured response is what is needed in these critical times that we face. Some say we waited to long for a no-fly zone. I think we did it just right. We gave Ghadaffi time to expose his posittions and draw his forces out.

    I'm no general, but it sounds pretty basic once you think about it. I'm pretty sure this is covered in Military Strategy 101.
