Frontrunners Generally Agree on the War
The frontrunners just made it clear there's not much difference between them on Iraq.
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) continued his strong support for the surge, insisting that "we are winning on the ground." He went on to cast the war in Iraq as a "seminal moment" in American history, adding it would be "catastrophic" for America to withdraw at the moment.
Giuliani echoed that sentiment, using Iraq to talk about his mantra -- "the terrorists war on us." He added: "You do not achieve peace through weakness and appeasement."
Romney was the last of the Big 3 to take a swing at the issue and decided to take a swing at Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.), always a sound strategy when trying to rile up Republican primary voters. "He's gone from Jane Fonda to Dr. Strangelove in one week," Romney said of the positions Obama has taken on foreign policy matters over the past week.
