Republican John McCain worked Monday to wrestle the spotlight from Barack Obama's tour of Iraq by insisting he was right and the Democrat was wrong about the war.
As Mr. Obama toured the war zones trailed by network TV anchors, Mr. McCain ridiculed him from afar during a visit with former President George Bush at the former president's summer home on the Atlantic. At the same time, Mr. McCain released a new ad blaming Mr. Obama for higher gasoline prices.
At least the GOP is resisting shaking the Osama bin-Laden boogeyman doll at the American electorate (so far anyway - a wise choice since bin-Laden's freedom underscores a significant failure of the Bush administration) and has decided to make Obama into a boogeyman instead.
It's Obama's fault gas prices are where they are? Really...? Are you fracking serious?
The Republicans are pulling their middle legs again, America - don't let them pull yours too.
After 7 years of George Bush as Chimpanzee in Chief, you are smart enough to figure it out this time? Say it with me now -- never again, never again...
