Bush: Iraq had WMD. McCain claimed Iraq had WMD and was a threat to the U.S. – “now, with more than 200,000 American and British troops at his doorstep, Saddam Hussein still refuses to give up his weapons of mass destruction.” McCain asserted that we had no other choice even as weapons inspectors were finding absolutely nothing and Bush was deciding to kick them out. Bush and McCain both claimed that they had no choice but to invade. Bush: deciminated false, distorted and incomplete intelligence to the media and the America. McCain was one of the leading proponents of creating a special intelligence unit that would, remarkably come up with information that supported the Bush administration’s agenda. Bush and McCain’s little unit produced information that was contrary to the intell produced by analysts at the State Department , the CIA and the International Atomic Energy Agency. McCain like Bush and Cheney has on multiple occasions conflated al-Qaeda, a radical Sunni organization with Iran, an overwhelmingly Shiia country, as is Iraq. In doing so he has equated Iran and Iraq with those that attacked the World Trade Center. Pure disinformation. Disinformation that creates the impression that Iraq had to be attacked in revenge for something it had nothing to do with. As he runs for president Mccain claims he is not George W. Bush. If integreity and “straight talk” is one of the qualifications for being the next commander-in-chief McCain has failed miserabily. If he were a private citizen his lies and distortions would be bad enough, but he is a U.S. Senator. A post in itself that McCain has proved himself unworthy of holding and now he wants a promotion. The ultimate perverse application of the Peter Principle, McCain thinks his ineptitude and treachery should be rewarded. The irony is piling on as McCain pretends to be the new improved version 2.0. Nope he is not Bush redux, Senator Obama is according to a Mccain spokesman,
I think the American people have had enough of inflexibility and stubbornness in national security policy…We cannot afford to replace one administration that refused for too long to acknowledge failure in Iraq with a candidate that refuses to acknowledge success in Iraq.
Bush and McBush both claimed Iraq had WMD and connections to al-Qaeda, not Senator Obama. Thus making Iraq the artificial front in the war on terror that had to be won. Just like Bush and the neocons McCain has a tendency to try and create his own fabulistic world rather then the reality that most Americans live in, After Voting For Education Cuts, McCain Touts Education Reform At NAACP. It probably doesn’t even cross McBush’s mind that his lies are insulting to others.
The U.S. is not the highest taxed country in the world, The U.S. Tax Burden Is Low Relative to Other OECD Countries
Sen. Tom Coburn’s (R-OK) is exactly the kind of do nothing know nothing arrogant obstructionist assclown that has turned off so many people about politics.
