McCain Goes Bonkers: Obama Says Talk To The Hand
You may or may not have seen John McCain's weak and pathetic response to Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton's voting againt that supplemental (Senator Dodd did too, but McCain only chose to attack the other two). If you haven't, I bet you can guess. McCain is trying to seem like he's a tough guy to win the support of the Geico Cavemen who make up the GOP base (Romney said something silly too, but then he had to run off to go hunt a varmint for dinner).
So McCain lodged the emboldening Al Qaeda charge, the waving the white flag charge and a few others until McCain wet himself and Cindy had to change his Depends again.
In any case, Obama responded:
Senator Barack Obama released the following statement today in response to statements made by Senator John McCain and Governor Mitt Romney on last night’s vote.You can probably guess which part I enjoyed the most by looking at the bolded portion of our program.
This country is united in our support for our troops, but we also owe them a plan to relieve them of the burden of policing someone else’s civil war. Governor Romney and Senator McCain clearly believe the course we are on in Iraq is working, but I do not.
And if there ever was a reflection of that it's the fact that Senator McCain required a flack jacket, ten armored Humvees, two Apache attack helicopters, and 100 soldiers with rifles by his side to stroll through a market in Baghdad just a few weeks ago.
Governor Romney and Senator McCain are still supporting a war that has cost us thousands of lives, made us less safe in the world, and resulted in a resurgence of al-Qaeda. It is time to end this war so that we can redeploy our forces to focus on the terrorists who attacked us on 9/11 and all those who plan to do us harm.
In any case, McCain came right back with a nasty retort, which is what tempermental loons are apt to do, going after Obama for his "two years" in the Senate. But you see Senator McCain, you might not want to brag about the kind of experience you've given us, namely the worst deficits ever, the worst foreign policy blunder ever, flip-flops on abortion, evolution, gay rights and Bush's tax cuts, not to mention the older stuff like your private plane rides on the Keating Five Express.
In other words, I'll take Obama's experience. But thanks for playing.
