WASHINGTON (AP) - Sen. John McCain says President Barack Obama is "mired" in a series of scandals and must find a way to surmount them.
McCain tells CBS's "This Morning" he believes "the president's credibility obviously is at stake here."
The Arizona Republican, who lost the presidency to Obama in the 2008 election, says Obama should be thinking about "how to get these issues behind him." McCain was referring to controversies involving the IRS, diplomatic security at Benghazi, Libya, and the seizure of journalists' phone records.
McCain said President Ronald Reagan went on television and took responsibility for the Iran-Contra affair, suggesting Obama do likewise.
McCain says administration officials are "not covering themselves with distinction here" and says a series of committee investigations undertaken by Congress should be allowed to run their course.
