When It Comes Back Around And Bites You In The Rear End!!

Think Progress


In a recent TV interview, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) criticized CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, saying he didn’t know what was going on in Iraq. As proof of progress, McCain claimed, “General Petraeus goes out there almost every day in an unarmed humvee.”

Sunday night in a 60 Minutes interview, McCain acknowledged that statement was a lie. He said “there is no unarmored humvees. Obviously, that’s the case.” He excused himself, saying, “I’m trying to make the point over and over and over again that we are making progress.”


McCain also previously claimed that there are neighborhoods that you can walk around freely, claiming his heavily-armed stroll through a Baghdad market was an example. Tonight, McCain said he can “understand why they would provide me with that security.”

“Of course I’m gonna misspeak,” McCain said. “I’ve done it on numerous occasions. And I probably will in the future. I regret that when I divert attention to something that I’ve said from my message. But that’s just life. And I’m happy, frankly, with the way I operate. Otherwise it’d be a lot less fun.”

But, this is the best 19 seconds of that video!!

John McCain, you are an idiot! You are also an embarrassment to the people of Arizona!

Stop lying and stop drinking the Kool-Aid!

S-Q. There are many decent Americans, like yourself, who deplore what is being done in their name just as I and many other Brits deplore what has been done by a small number of British troops in Iraq in my name. What we saw going in in Abu Ghraib was also going on in British "detention facilities" in Iraq, as well.

And I remember having now sympathy for the prisoners in Gitmo when pictures of the prisoners first appeared on television screens in 2003.

One of the things that stands out in my memory of my visit to the States in 2004 was just how polarized the country was.

It was then that I first became familiar with the slogan, "Not in Our Name".

I tried to get this across to the young Afghan student I spoke to, but he seemed so embittered by what has gone in in that part of the world that he would hear none of it.

John McCain is a delusional fool still guzzling the koolaid...............he is SO delusional he thinks he can be all things to all people...............instead of taking a stand on either what he truly believes or on how the vast Majority of Americans feel, this man thinks he can hippocritically flip flop between issues and play all sides and Americans will be dumb enough to fall in line just like they did for the war mongering Pied Piper GWB who is leading this country off the edge of a cliff just as the Pied Piper did to the Lemmings.

A perfect example of McCains lack credibility and integrity is the fact that he is licking the boots of the Rove/Bush Smear Machine hoping they will put their big money propaganda and smear machine behind hin EVEN though they destroyed him in 2000...............another example is the lies and staged propaganda he just pulled in Iraq to deceive the American people and try to make it APPEAR things are better in Iraq than they really are.

This is a man with NO credibility or integrity that will say and do anything to become president.......he cares about John McCain not his country and after GWB thatys the last person we need for president.................mCcain like the Neo Cons who he bootlicks are FINISHED!!

Hi Anthony!

More and more Americans are totally fed up with this war and we want our troops out of Iraq!
Even the "Sheeple" are starting to realize that it's wrong!
