Those Lie-beral McCain Attacks on Iraq

with one comment

Those attacks on McCain for saying that we’ll be in Iraq for 100 years are starting to have an effect–they’re pissing me off.  This is a deliberate attack on the man by taking his words out of context.  No matter how bitter elections are, this is a dirty trick that the Republicans refuse to do, but the Democrats seem to care less about integrity than winning elections.

First McCain said we’d be in 100 years in a South Korea type fashion.  Within the next year or two the people in the Middle East will stop shooting at us.  The tensions will die down and the middle east will have a period of peace and prosperity.  Many of the countries will adopt Chistianity and we will be grateful we didn’t cut and run.  This is not a 100 year war McCain is talking about.  Its a presence like we have in South Korea.

People like to point out the economic costs of a war that goes on in Iraq for 100 years, but once again McCain is talking about a 100 year occupation like South Korea not a war.  According to the Congressional Budget Office the cost of this occupation would only be only $3,000,000,0000,000 for the next 77 years.  To some of you that may sound like a lot, but keep in mind during that time our social security shortfall is supposed to be $4,300,000,000,000.  We need to ask ourselves what’s more important–peace and freedom in the middle east or continuing this social security gravy train for seniors too lazy or too stupid to save when they were younger. 

I call on any members of the Democratic Party with any honor left to stop these false and misleading campaign commercials.  This is not the kind of high minded debate oriented election the Republicans want to engage in and I would hope that as Americans you would be better than this too.

  1. OK. You win. Can we just stick to talking about his calling his wife a colorful euphemism for a female personal part?
