John McCain mocks Barack Obama on Al Qaeda in Iraq
Republican presidential hopeful Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., speaks during a town hall meeting at the United Services Automobile Association (USAA) headquarters in San Antonio, Texas, Wednesday, Feb. 27, 2008.
Has the general election campaign already started?
John McCain has started MOCKING Barack Obama on his Iraq War views.
Republican presidential hopeful John McCain mocked Democrat Barack Obama on Wednesday for saying he would take action as president “if al-Qaida is forming a base in Iraq.”
“When you examine that statement, it’s pretty remarkable,” McCain told a crowd in Tyler, Texas.
“I have some news. Al-Qaida is in Iraq. It’s called `al-Qaida in Iraq,'” McCain said, drawing laughter at Obama’s expense.
Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., addresses a rally Wednesday, Feb. 27, 2008, in Columbus, Ohio. Obama and Republican presidential hopeful John McCain traded sharp barbs Wednesday over al-Qaida’s presence in Iraq, both suggesting the other held naive views.
And, then Obama strikes back:
Obama quickly answered back, telling a rally at Ohio State University in Columbus, “I do know that al-Qaida is in Iraq.”
“So I have some news for John McCain,” he added, saying there was no al-Qaida presence in Iraq until President Bush invaded the country.
Noting that McCain likes to tell audiences that he’d follow Osama bin Laden to the “gates of hell” to catch him, Obama taunted: “All he (McCain) has done is to follow George Bush into a misguided war in Iraq.”
Obama and the Democrats will be betting their election to the Presidency by America losing a war in Iraq? The Obama and anti-war blame Bush game ALREADY failed with Howard Dean and John Kerry in 2004.
Conditions are better on the ground in Iraq and progress is being made. So, now is the time to surrender and withdraw?
But, keep up the discourse, Barack and tell us about all of your military experience and your qualifications to become Commander in Chief.
