(CNN) – Sen. John McCain has some words of wisdom for Gov. Rick Perry ahead of Tuesday’s CNN Republican debate: Get some rest.
“Every time I made a serious mistake politically and I’ve made them, it’s been when I’m tired,” McCain said in an interview Friday on CNN’s “The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer.”
CNN's Jim Acosta reports on the flurry of Tolkien references John McCain used in challenging tea party congress members.
On Tuesday’s Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer, Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona, who supports the Libya mission, said that he expected the White House to provide Congress with details on the Libya mission this week.
"My understanding is the White House will be sending over a report and lots of information about what we've done," McCain said, adding that the Senate could then vote on a resolution backing the mission that would be intended to satisfy questions over the War Powers Resolution requirement.
To McCain, the delay in a White House response made the issue more challenging than necessary.
"I can assure you that it's gonna be much more difficult, with a lot more amendments and a lot more debates, than if we would have done this a couple months ago," McCain said.
