John McCain's Experience

Thanks to George W. Bush, McCain has had 5 years exactly, to bone up on Al-Qaeda in Iraq, not Iran, their sworn enemies (thanks, Joe). Foreign policy, specifically making sense of the war on terror, was supposed to be McCain's strong suit. "Let me give you some straight talk, friends" admits he knows little about economic policy. McCain's buffoonery, doesn't exactly inspire the Middle East and the world, that he would be a safe pair of hands as President.

This time, thankfully McCain had Joe Lieberman by his side, to straighten him out. Fortunately, it wasn't a 3:00 a.m. moment. And then there is the possibility that McCain could get sharper when he is 80 years old, and in his second term at the White House? Hey, that's something to look forward to. "I'm sorry".

This is third such 'fact finding' mission that that McCain has gone over to Iraq that I know of, and he is still seems clueless as to what is going on.

Obama: "Just yesterday, we heard Senator McCain confuse Sunni and Shiite, Iran and Al Qaeda. Maybe that is why he voted to go to war with a country that had no Al Qaeda ties. Maybe that is why he completely fails to understand that the war in Iraq has done more to embolden America's enemies than any strategic choice that we have made in decades".

And Iran might be the next country that that the GOP senators like McCain (and Clinton -D), have already given Senate authorization for the US to launch full-scale military action..Just what we need again.

He said it AGAIN today. I would criticize him, only he's so old I'm not sure if he can remember what happened yesterday.


Defective Manchurian Candidate. Expiration date past due. Why the presidency will be effectively decided at the Democratic convention. Short version: McCain is scum. Less short version:


So, you all are saying the 9/11 Commission Report was mistaken, then?

Let's see. McCain has been on an overseas trip for many days. Has been in a war zone. Gave a press conference in a very dangerous location in Israel.....maybe he should just say he was "tired". That excuse worked for Obama a few months ago.

Steve Crickmore:

It turns out that there may have been some truth to what McCain said (accidentally) the first time, but I don't think it invalidates my remark that McCain has no idea what is going on. And if we can unite Shiite extremists and the al Qaeda largely in Iraq , but with some leaders in Iran against us, we are in even bigger trouble than I thought we were.

I understand McCain's confusion and frustration. About a year ago, wasn't McCain quoted telling guests at a big-$ Repub fund raiser that if he were president, he'd fix Iraq by grabbing the Sunnis and the Shiite leaders by the back of the neck, bang their heads together and then tell them to "knock the ... off"

I think this has been the Bush-Cheney approach, greased with loads of American money, 5 years later and after a 2-3 trillion dollar war we are still facing a quagmire.
