McCain Uses Obama’s Wasted Remark and Feels Bad About It

On David Letterman McCain said, “Americans are very frustrated, and they have every right to be. We’ve wasted a lot of our most precious treasure, which is American lives.” That means he said that the soldiers lives were wasted, which is the same thing Obama said in early February while campaigning in Iowa. When asked about the McCain’s comment, Obama gave him a pass saying, “I think nobody would question Senator McCain’s dedication to our veterans,” ….. “We have a duty to make sure that we are honoring their sacrifice by giving them missions in which they can succeed … I’m positive that was the intent in which he meant it. It was the same intent I had when I made my statement.” The DNC got on McCain’s case about this remark right away. How come they where silent when Obama said it? McCain did feel bad about his wasted statment, and said he “should have used the word, sacrificed, as I have in the past.” John McCain is a great American hero, and would not say anything disparaging about soldiers. The candidates slips about this war most likely mean they think this whole war was a wasted effort. The truth is we will be no better off after the Iraq war is all settled. Terrorist have become more embolden by Bush’s cowboy foreign policies, and terrorist attacks have actually gone up since Bush started his war on terror. This war in Iraq has lttle to do with the terrorist that flew those planes into the Twin Towers, and has even less to do with the war on Terror. It is, and will be a wasted war, where many lives, American and Iraqis have been wasted. I asked last time for what purpose are these soldiers dying, and was told for my right to write things like this. Do these people really believe that Iraq has anything to do with the first amendment? The only one threatening those rights is the Bush administration with their homeland security acts.
