McCain: Not Just Visiting, He’s Living on Fantasy Island


Last week John McCain McBush reiterated for me that he is clueless about things he speaks about.  McBush’s claim to fame is that he is an expert on Iraq, but that is not true.  He keeps making mammoth mistakes which scare the living daylights out of me.  These are not little slips of the tongue or him misspeaking; McBush continually gets the facts wrong.  He just keeps getting it wrong.  It makes me wonder what he’ll be saying in September/October when he’s tired.  Right now he’s pretty well-rested.

Last week he said to a town hall crowd, “I can look you in the eye and tell you the surge is succeeding”. “We have drawn down to pre-surge levels.”

Whoa big John! That’s not true, so STOP looking me in the eye!  There are currently 155,000 troops in Iraq; there were 130,000 before the surge.

McBush also proclaimed that Mosul is “quiet”.  According to our US military, there are 23 major cities in Iraq; Mosul is the third largest city.  But somehow McBush wants us to feel content that one city, Mosul, is ‘quiet’?  But not even that is true.

McCain seem not to have heard that earlier that day three suicide bombings rocked Mosul and a nearby town, leaving 23 dead.

The day before that McCain scoffed at Obama for declining to go with him on a trip to Iraq, saying, “We’ve got to show him the facts on the ground.”

Which facts are those Senator?  The fantasy facts you invented while on Fantasy Island visiting the year 2013?

Keep McBush out of the White House or God help us all!




P.S. Please read our 5/17 post, “McCain: Mac to the Future” to get details of McCain’s ‘2013 speech’ delivered on May 15 in Columbus, Ohio.




  1. McCain is 76 years old an older guy. I have nothing against old people but I think his age might have something to do with it. I like McCain he has been bullied by the ultra conservatives in his party mainly the evangelists to lean their way. A couple months ago he was sucking up to them for support.Historically he has been more moderate than he is now.
    I find it interesting how Obama goes after McCain so much more aggressive than he went after Clinton yet Clinton clean his clocks.

    Interesting times indeed, can’t wait for the convention and finally November.

  2. Dutty, one of the interesting dynamics of this race is that it is difficult for a man to win an argument against a woman, period. If a man is respectful he comes off as having no balls. If he is aggressive it comes off that he is condescending and has no respect for that woman or sometimes it can be spun to look like he has no respect for any woman. It is a very difficult balancing act to be combative and respectful at the same time. It becomes exceptionally difficult when the man is black and the woman is white. There are so many bombs that could blow up in his face if Obama had been too aggressive. He did what he had to do. He worked with what he had to work with. If two women or two women were in the race it would have been different. It will be a different ball game when it is man against man. 🙂

    Obama was being nice to Clinton because he was asked to be so – by the party itself leaving her with a good run in and without her losing face.

    Obama will rip John McCain a new one once the race starts officially – and that will be Wednesday morning!
