Remarks that Johnny Mac has been making on the trail for about the last 12 months.
Remarks that, from where we're sitting, are absolutely accurate.
In any event, Senator John Kerry (D-Paris), responded by saying:
What Sen. McCain has articulated again today… is a policy for staying in Iraq, and it’s completely contrary to the desires as well as the needs of the American people.To which we respond:
If John Kerry and the Democrats got off their asses, stopped whining about the minority party and actually passed forward looking energy legislation well, Senator Kerry might have a point.We're not shouting at the rain when we say again (and again and again and again) that our addiction to oil is driving our foreign policy and national security needs and flushing (in our opinion) this country right down the toilet.
But until America moves off of fossil fuels, America has a national security interest in the Middle East. And "having a national security interest in the Middle East" in this case means tens of thousands (if not hundreds of thousands) of U.S. troops being station in Iraq.
Shitty. But true.
And by the way, how many miles per gallon does your wife's private jet get Senator Kerry?
