Getting to Know the Real John McCain

Brilliant analysis of John McCain by Bob Herbert at the New York Times. Senator McCain crossed a line that he shouldn’t have this week when he said that Mr. Obama “would rather lose a war in order to win a political campaign.” It was a lousy comment, tantamount to calling Mr. Obama a traitor, and Senator McCain should apologize for […]

The McCain Iraq Surge Lie

He’s losing it. He’s either lying deliberately in his state of desperation or he has a very, very tenuous grasp on “the facts on the ground” in Iraq. When it comes down to it, whether or not The SurgeTM worked isn’t the issue for me. I guess you could say that it worked except that the number of troops in […]

McCain: “Obama Should Go To Iraq!”

I’ll bet he’s regretting that particular admonition, eh? These two pictures were taken at almost the same time. Quite a contrast… From Ben Smith’s Politico blog. I’m just sayin’…

The McCain Gas Price Lie

More lies about Obama from the McCain campaign. Straight Talk, my pale, white, pimply ass… What the ad pins on Obama — and others who are “saying no to (new offshore) drilling in America” — are the price increases the country is currently enduring. That saddles the Illinois senator with a lot more influence than he has had. If one […]

The McCain Tax Lie

Let’s just get this straight because the McCain campaign can’t seem to tell the truth about much of anything regarding Senator Obama: “If you are a family making $250,000 or less, we will not raise your taxes,” he said. “Not your income tax. Not your payroll tax, not your capital gains tax. Not any tax. We will cut your taxes. […]

Obama Hitting Homeruns All The Back to the USA

The Nuri al-Maliki not-an-endorsement endorsement of Senator Obama is resonating. Hugely. Josh Marshall at The Talking Points Memo: My first instinct is always to try not to overstate the impact of momentary developments. But I don’t think it’s enough to say this is a huge development. It’s huger than that. In a stroke, I think, al Maliki has cut McCain […]

Who Said THAT??? – Muddlespeak Edition

Today’s edition of “Who Said THAT???!” is an amazing example of using a LOT of words to say pretty much nothing at all. If you can figure it out, please let me know. Mr. al-Maliki confirmed the existence of an Iraqi vision stems from the reality with regard to Iraq security needs, as the positive developments of the security situation […]

So, Can We Leave Now?

The Prime Minister of Iraq, Nuri al-Maliki, has more or less endorsed Senator Obama’s timetable for leaving Iraq in Germany’s Spiegel newspaper: “SPIEGEL: Would you hazard a prediction as to when most of the US troops will finally leave Iraq? Maliki: As soon as possible, as far as we’re concerned. U.S. presidential candidate Barack Obama talks about 16 months. That, […]

Nice Job, Ace

Jesus. And this guy claims he has good judgment??? McCain Breaches Security by Revealing Obama’s Trip Details. Money quote from a “knowledgeable insider”: If it is true that Obama is going to Iraq this weekend, it is a very serious mistake for McCain to have disclosed it publically. Even for run-of-the-mill CODELs the military gives guidance like, “Please strongly discourage […]
