McCain’s Judgement Questionable, Bush Declares Defeat

Being an unknown quantity Palin probably deserves much of the scrutiny she is getting, but if its a choice between her and McCain as to which is the most malicious and dangerous, McCain easily wins that race, McCain Reacts To McClellan: ‘Every Intelligence Agency In The World And Every Assessment’ Said Iraq Had WMD. Johnny knows that was not the truth in 2003. Lying to the American people about foreign intelligence and using it to lie the nation into a bloody and costly war beats leaving a small town in debt. They are both important issues and the bridge/reformer nonsense shows a Bush/Cheney like tendency to massage the fact and govern with arrogance, but as far as we know McCain is the one that won’t let facts get in the way of sending our troops to die for a lie. Former Whitehouse press secretary Scott McClellan says Bush manipulated intelligence and thus the public. The State Department’s Bureau of Intelligence and Research (INR) said the evidence that Saddam had WMD was less then compelling. The Department of Energy didn’t think the infamous aluminum tubes were intended to make nuclear weapons materials. Mr. Johnny Experience, whose every word is gospel, well because he was a POW you know, says his story book version of events is the truth. When does CBS or Fox or CNN start stating the plain truth. McCain is a dangerous hothead that will not miss a beat when it comes to advancing his agenda over the common good of the American people.

Even with my rose colored glasses on it looks like Bush has decided to become a terrorist loving defeatist that wants to see America destroyed by burka wearing radicals, Most Members of Iraq Coalition Preparing to Pull Up Stakes

President Bush tucked a little extra news yesterday into a speech largely devoted to informing the public that he plans to withdraw 8,000 more troops from Iraq: He also announced that most of the countries that have been partnering with the United States in Iraq over the past five years will be pulling their troops out as well.

Remember this from 2006 Bush Team Casts Foes as Defeatist

Vice President Cheney this week said critics “claim retreat from Iraq would satisfy the appetite of the terrorists and get them to leave us alone.” And Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld, citing passivity toward Nazi Germany before World War II, said that “many have still not learned history’s lessons” and “believe that somehow vicious extremists can be appeased.”

McCain in July 2008,

This is a clear choice that the American people have. I had the courage and the judgment to say I would rather lose a political campaign than lose a war. It seems to me that Obama would rather lose a war in order to win a political campaign.

In McCain’s bubble that would make Bush willing to lose a war in order to help Obama win. Down deep in the Republican rabbit hole McCain’s bizarre accusations make sense, the Bushies judgment is pure gold and is perfectly consistent. Not so much for normal Americans.

Al Franken wins Senate nomination in Minnesota. Minnesota deserves better then Norm Coleman.

When The Wall Street Journal starts calling a Republican a liar I always suspect that a small part of hell just froze over, Record Contradicts Palin’s ‘Bridge’ Claims

Despite significant evidence to the contrary, the McCain campaign continues to assert that Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin told the federal government “thanks but no thanks” to the now-famous bridge to an island in her home state.

The McCain campaign released a television advertisement1 Monday morning titled “Original Mavericks.” The narrator of the 30-second spot boasts about the pair: “He fights pork-barrel spending. She stopped the Bridge to Nowhere.”

I’ve seen the advertisement. When did running an honorable campaign, as Mccain has claimed, mean you could tell four or five outrageous lies in thirty seconds.

Conservatives tell fish stories, call them reform. Apologies to any fish I may have offended.

“I think they put some lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig,” – John McCain, October 11, 2007

This is all a little confusing. Last week Palin described herself as a dog in lipstick and now the Mccainiacs are pretending to be offended by an old analogy about pigs in lipstick, A Piggish Debate

Speaking on behalf of the McCain campaign, former Massachusetts Gov. Jane Swift tonight flatly stated that Obama had called Palin a pig.

“[T]he formation of the Palin Truth Squad couldn’t have happened too soon, as we saw when Sen. Obama in Lebanon, Va., this evening uttered what I can only deem to be disgraceful comments comparing our vice presidential nominee Gov. Palin to a pig,” Swift said.

“Sen. Obama owes Gov. Palin an apology,” she said.

Asked why she was so confident Obama was “comparing” Palin to a pig, she said Palin was the only one of the four candidates on both parties’ tickets who wears lipstick.

“She is the only one of the four candidates for president, or the only vice presidential candidate who wears lipstick,” Swift said. “I mean, it seemed to me a very gendered comment.”

Talk about welfare. Swift’s job appears to be trying to convince America that analogies her own candidate has used are absolutely gender specific and no amount of manufactured outrage is too much. She added that she wouldn’t teach her children such language. I pity those children.

A reporter then reminded Swift that in December, McCain was asked about criticisms coming his way from then-opponent Gov. Mitt Romney, R-Mass., and McCain replied, “Never get into a wrestling match with a pig. You both get dirty, and the pig likes it.”
