McCain To Obama: Let’s go To Iraq, Little Man!

Posted by Thunder Pig on May 27, 2008

Republican John McCain on Monday sharply criticized Democratic rival Barack Obama for not having been to Iraq since 2006, and said they should visit the war zone together.

“Look at what happened in the last two years since Senator Obama visited and declared the war lost,” the GOP presidential nominee-in-waiting told The Associated Press in an interview, noting that the Illinois senator’s last trip to Iraq came before the military buildup that is credited with curbing violence.

Hat Tip: Pirate’s Cove, especially for the title!


I daresay I knew the Surge would be a success before Obama. I have blogged about it extensively. [Iraq posts just since the end of January]

And President bush has accomplished most of the goals of the surge as announced in January of 2007. (Please note that he was opposed every step of the way by the Democrats in General, and Barack Hussein Obama in Particular).

I am working on a post detailing the successes of the Surge, and the utter failure of the democrat Opposition to the Surge. If we had followed the advice of the Democrats…we would not have an ally in Iraq…Iran would.

Putting Democrats in charge of our Foreign Policy is suicidal.
