McCain is Afraid to Talk About Iraq

Posted by Ilan Goldenberg

Ben Smith points out that McCain canceled his press availability because he didn't want to deal with the mess he's created for himself. Yglesias adds that after complaining for two days about no press coverage it's pretty amusing for him at this point to cancel his one press availability.

I'll add another point. John McCain canceled his presser today because he is afraid to talk about IRAQ. Not the economy. Not energy policy. Not abortion. Not judges. Not healthcare. IRAQ. You know the issue on which he's run his whole campaign on. It gets even more ridiculous when you realize that the reason McCain won't talk today is because of the SURGE. John McCain is afraid to talk about the SURGE. John McCain's campaign would like to you think that he is king of the surge. That he absolutely owns it. But today it is clear that he doesn't even understand the history behind it.

If this isn't a sign that John McCain is in serious trouble, I don't know what is.
