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!
