Sen. John McCain lashed out at unnamed proponents of isolationist politics, saying that abandoning America's role as an international leader was 'unpatriotic.' He made the remarks at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia where he received the center's Liberty Medal for a lifetime of service and sacrifice to the country. 'To abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe, to refuse the obligations of international leadership 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.'
