John McCain Just Lost The Election

John McCainJohn McCain thinks he can change America’s mind on Iraq, he thinks he can convince people that the surge is working. McCain just came out and said if he cannot do that he looses. Well guess what Johnny Boy, you lose. There is no way anyone that wasn’t going to vote for you anyway (the harcore 25% that will never admit they were wrong.) is going to believe a word your lying ass has to say about Iraq. The quagmire you helped prolong with your whole “surge” idea. Don’t you think that saying we should stay in Iraq for the next thousand is going to make people know that you are justing fronting for the neocons and the oil companies, and your corporate masters. Hey John did lobbyists pay you to say that. You seem to be pretty far into their pockets. C’mon John, even Hillary says the war has to end. You better find a way to steal a bunch of states in the election John otherwise you got no chance.

AP
ROCKY RIVER, Ohio – John McCain said Monday that to win the White House he must convince a war-weary country that U.S. policy in Iraq is succeeding. If he can’t, “then I lose. I lose,” the Republican said.

But McCain ever the flip-flopper immediately retracted his statement that he will lose

“Let me not put it that stark,” the likely GOP nominee told reporters on his campaign bus. “Let me just put it this way: Americans will judge my candidacy first and foremost on how they believe I can lead the county both from our economy and for national security. Obviously, Iraq will play a role in their judgment of my ability to handle national security.”
“If I may, I’d like to retract ‘I’ll lose.’ But I don’t think there’s any doubt that how they judge Iraq will have a direct relation to their judgment of me, my support of the surge,” McCain added. “Clearly, I am tied to it to a large degree.”

John must have realized at that moment that he was dreaming about Iraq, but he can’t think that he can win by running on the economy? How is he going to fix the economy? by ending the Bush tax cuts. His own party will revolt agaisnt him if he does that. We know he isn’t going to end the war, so what will he do? Nothing.

Over the next eight months, McCain said he would take the same approach when discussing Iraq that he’s taken all year as he won primary after primary on his way to securing the GOP nomination.

He said he would “tell them that I understand their frustration and their sorrow over the sacrifice that has been made and then I try to explain to them what’s at stake and what’s going on there now. And that’s the best I can do.”

Sorry Johnny Boy, not good enough, not nearly good enough

    HL you must be kidding. Iraq is’t even in the top 5 things that people are worried about any more. In a CNN poll they asked the question “In general, do you think the U.S. military is or is not making progress in improving conditions in Iraq and bringing an end to the violence in that country?”
    2/1-3/08 Is-52% Is Not-45% Mixed(vol.)-2% Unsure-1%
    That means McCain doesn’t have to convince the people of anything. You really need to work on your spinning ability there HL you are slipping.
    As to McCain losing the election, that wont happen either because no one wants 4 or 8 more years of the Clintons do nothing admin. We already saw what they can do. Oh and if you listen to what Hitlery is saying she wasnts to do and fix it is the exact samethings that Bill said. So if slick willy did so great than why is it that we still need to fix the same things.

    MR. MCCAIN NEEDS TO ADDRESS SOME OF THE ISSUES AS TO WHAT PRESIDENT BUSH HAS TRIED TO DO ABOUT THE GAS PRICES. THE PRESIDENT HAS TRIED TO GET THE SENATE AND THE CONGRESS TO DRILL AND OPEN NEW OIL REF. BUT HE HAS ALWAYS BEEN VOTED DOWN. SECON THE UNEMPLOYMENT RATE IN ALL THE REPIBLICAN STATES IS A LOT LOWER THAN ALL THE STATES WITH A DEMOCTATE GONGRESS OR SENATE PERSON. ALSO SUGERCAIN IS MUCH CHEEPER TO REFINE THAN CORN FOR FUEL. ALSO LET THE MILITARY SPEAK OUT FOR THE WAR. MOST OF MY FAMILE WHO ARE OR HAVE BEEN IN THE MILITARY SAY THIS IS JUST LIKE ANY OTHER WAR THAT THE US HAS GOTTEN INVOLVED IN. EUROPE WOULD NOT BEE WHERE IT IS TODAY IF NOT FOR THE US. GOOD MUST GO AFTER EVIL ALWAYS.
