Oh good McCain can walk around for 15 minutes and declare Iraq a success and safe yet again. Thank goodness i feel better already. Whata joke. No matter, i take it with a grain of salt, after all he will probably flip-flop that decreee at some point like he has the use of torture or the Bush tax cuts. Thank goodness i can hold out hope that he will find some semblence of reality at some point, however fleeting it might be

Well, it seems President McCain can change his Campaign song again!


Because he's "Taking care of Business"! ;~)

You've got to wonder: Why does Senator McCain need more security than the President of Iran? Where's Rummy? Why isn't he out walking the streets of Baghdad that we've made so safe? Anyone been on a stroll in Mosul lately?

We can wait 1 year or 20 years to pull out our troops, when we do, the Iraqis are going solve their own problems, not us. Not before.

Did you think it was a "campaign trip" the previous times he went?

I am glad President McCain is already beginning to take action. The sooner he starts getting things in Order the better! :-)

Now, if he would just get His VP, Mitt busy correcting the Economy.... ;~)

Why is he using taxpayer money for what amounts to a campaign trip?
