McCain's newest, bestest statement, ever! "...I and Osama bin Laden are in agreement."
Edited on Wed Jul-23-08 03:14 PM by elehhhhna
Since when the hell did we start taking our instructions from OBL?

IMO this should be a big deal. It's not a gaffe -- IMO, it shows very, very questionable judgement.


PALM SPRINGS, Calif. -- Usually the political response to a new message from Osama bin Laden is one of universal condemnation, but at a VFW hall in Chula Vista here yesterday, John McCain announced his agreement with an aspect of a recent bin Laden message.

"General Petraeus is correct when he says that the central battleground in the struggle against Al Qaeda is Iraq, and Osama bin Laden just confirmed that again with his comments last week," McCain said before quoting a line from a recent audio recording of bin Laden calling for support of the Mujahadeen in Iraq.

VIDEO: McCain tells an audience that he agrees with Osama bin Laden's statement that Iraq is a primary battleground in the U.S. struggle against Al Qaeda.

McCain told reporters after his town hall, "General Petraeus and I and Osama bin Laden are in agreement. It is hard to understand why Senator Clinton and Senator Obama do not understand that . I don't know if it is naivet or what the problem is but it's obvious that they're dead wrong, and they're wrong when they say that we should leave Iraq immediately and it's time that they acknowledge that the surge is succeeding and the benefits of success in Iraq will spread throughout the entire Middle East."

1. He's a walking trainwreck.
It seems like he's trying his best to lose.

Bizarre statement to make.

6. I give him 10 minutes in a debate before he calls Obama a cunt.
We should all join in a drinking game when the debates come on, will be good times.

2. Didn't Saddam Hussein hate Al Qaeda?

That alone was reason enough for OBL to sic our mentally-challenged government on Iraq. We basically did Bin Laden's dirty work for him, turning Iraq into fertile soil for Al Qaeda in the process. Mission accomplished, as they say.

4. Of course he did - Sucker the dumbass bush into dragging the American Army into Quicksand
Gotta love conservative values. now mccain is beating his chest about the "surge." Wow imagine if bush had not intentionally lied about WMD, there would be no need for a "surge."
