McCain Falsely Claims Most American Oppose Timetable For Iraq Withdrawal
http://thinkprogress.org/2006/08/20/mccain-false-timeta... /

Today on Meet the Press, Sen. John McCain claimed, Most Americans when they are asked do you want to set a date for withdraw? they say no. Watch it:

McCain is wrong. Most American support a timetable for withdrawal. Heres the latest CNN Poll:

Timetable % No Timetable % Unsure %
8/2-3/06 57 40 4
6/14-15/06 53 41 6

1. Good catch !
But he probably didn't lie intentionally. He's just out of touch with the American people.

4. I agree - they put out lies knowingly in hopes to confuse viewers
especially the casual viewers, like those who believe that WMDs WERE found in Iraq because Santorum made that declaration recently and it gets repeated all over the cable shows with little attention given to the actual FACTS.

7. McCain is a Faux Barry Goldwater, trotted out by MSM on Sundays
so that they can pretend that the GOP still has room for independents and traditional conservatives. He complained loudly about the torture of POWs but said nothing about W.'s signing statement. The same goes for Arlen Spectre except doubly so.

These guys are worse than the Bill Frists of the GOP. They are beltway insiders who get rich taking insider money for pretending to be outsiders.

8. He also said that Lieberman is a liberal Democrat
Is he nuts or simply trying to confuse us?

As for a timetable, the Dems are already there. It's the Republican party that is splitting up over this. McCain needs to get out of *'s bubble.
