I do not I think he is dead on and I wish Obama would tone it up a notch.


would you want NATO to go to war to defend Georgia?

can we back up McCain's rhetoric and put our money where his mouth is?

Apparently the troops drank the Obama-celebrity kool-aid.

McCain:

Quote:
"I know I speak for every American when I say to him, 'Today we are all Georgians.'"

i wonder how many more conflicts will get McCain excited ... we have potential conflicts with Russia, Iran, China, Iraq, Afghanistan. there's also Burma and Darfur.

and what's quite true is that there are sympathetic players in all of these conflicts. who doesn't feel for the suffering Georgians or Burmese or the Iraqis?

but do we solve these conflicts, and help suffering people, by talking tough and seeking to punish the aggressors? is that really the best way to conduct foreign policy, with a square jaw and a pointed finger and an unflinching sense of right and wrong and if you're not with us you're against us?

ooh, ooh, i got another one:

Quote:
My friends, we have reached a crisis, the first probably serious crisis internationally since the end of the Cold War. This is an act of aggression.

now that, my friends, is the sign of a true Cold Warrior, a true politician of the 70s and 80s. whether in figure skating or cold war fighting, it will always be the Russians who need defeating.

it's as if he's forgotten about Kuwait. or Iraq. or Afghanistan. or Bosnia.

John McCain sued over use of Running on Empty in anti-Obama ad

"Singer-songwriter Jackson Browne has sued John McCain over the use of his hit Running on Empty in an ad that attacks presidential candidate Barack Obama.
...
The suit notes that other musicians, including ABBA and John Cougar Mellencamp, have asked McCain to stop using their work."


Awww, even his favorite, ABBA is suing him...

Tough break pal.

I generally don't care one iota what a religious leader thinks about a politician and would prefer they mind their own business. I'm posting this only because I'm not sure I've read such a direct criticism/attack against a candidate recently. Also it bears noting that the Reverend in question is a close friend of the Bush family and in fact, presided over Jenna Bush's marriage ceremony just this past spring.

Quote:
"Well, I don't know a lot about John McCain's family history, I do know, however, that as recently as last week I think it was, the Senator made a comment in South Dakota regarding his wife entering some Buffalo Chips contest which is this topless deal and if she were to enter she would probably win it and my personal opinion and based on my understanding of the Christian faith, that's not not, N-O-T, not the type of expression that a presidential candidate, or anyone for that matter who is a follower of the Christian faith, ought to make," said the Rev. Kirbyjon Caldwell. "I don't know if that is a perfect case in point, but it surely does help to juxtapose the DNA of Senator Obama, if you would, versus the DNA of Senator McCain."

His marital history has been duly recorded," said Caldwell, referring to McCain, "and as recently as yesterday I think it is, our pastor from Saddleback, Rick Warren indicated that he would not feel comfortable voting for an adulterer and I don't know exactly to whom he was referring but I think the data speaks for itself, and again, at the end of the day, and I really appreciate you raising this because, at the end of the day again I think the American public deserves full revelation of the candidate's character and competency. Character and competency. So, whatever questions that should be asked that would give the voting public an indication as to who they are and what they've done should be fair game."
At ABC.

that is why I included "or not".


But I do believe John is more of a 'giver' than he chose to "come clean" with on Nightline.

I do have to say this is one of the biggest stretches I've seen from a respectable FYMer...

It saddens me.

and the president of Georgia certainly did get the memo from the McCain campaign and the army of lobbyists that told them to pick a fight with Russia so that the McCain campaign could have a big, bad bear to snarl about! what's a few thousand dead Georgians compared to getting McCain back into the news cycle?

what luck!
