McCain's Losing It
Keep Up The Great Work McCain!
Did you hear the news? Senator John McCain, the presumptive nominee of the Republican Party, claims that we can win the war in Iraq by the year 2013. I just read this report in Yahoo! news, and what I thought was most telling was that nowhere in that report did McCain give us a ballpark estimate how many more American lives will need to be shed before that day will come. The other interesting thing about this prediction is that McCain seems to be unwittingly telling us that at present we are not winning the war. So while he would like us to believe that, in 2008 his beloved surge plan is working, apparently it's not working all that great if it's going to take us another 5 years before he expects to be declaring "mission accomplished."
I can respect John McCain for not running from his record on the war. He has been unapologetically a supporter of this war since day one. However, given the fact that Americans have, by and large, decided already that we've shed enough American blood in Iraq, I really have to wonder if this guy is operating on all points when he says, "Vote for me! I'll have us out of Iraq in 5 years!"
Saying that John McCain is losing it may be generous of me, because it does imply that once upon a time he did have it to lose. I'll give him that. But comments like this make me realize a couple of things. First, if Republicans were smart, they'd be Democrats. Second, John McCain will be creamed come November.
So keep up the good work John!
