– mccain’s latest iran joke

hey obama not blah blah, here’s an interesting read for you

“You have two choices for president

The first one has one of the longest lines of political experience in history. He is exceedingly popular in congress. He was a soldier who volunteered to defend the United States in the Navy.

The second one has no real political experience outside of Illinois. He is tall and lanky with big ears. He even lost a few of his first attempts at gaining political office. He is an excellent speechwriter and orator. He is a good attorney and has a successful law practice.

So which one would you choose?

This is a trick question because both were already Presidents of the United States. The first one is the 15th President of the United States, James Buchannan. He is the President who mired us in the Civil War by declaring the action illegal but doing nothing when the south decided to seceed from the Union. He is largely considered by historians as being the worst President in American history.

He was followed by the other man who became the 16th President of the United States Abraham Lincoln. Abraham Lincoln is credited with the end of slavery, the end of the Civil War, and unification of the nation. He became president at a dark time when our country was deeply divided over very polarizing issues. He had no experience in Washington prior to his Presidency. He is widely considered by historians as one of the best Presidents in American History.”

now let me elaborate. the fact of the matter is that we have no idea what we are going to get from obama OR mccain. bush had no experience beside being the governor of texas, and we all remember how woefully inadequate his knowledge of foreign affairs… and hell, GEOGRAPHY was before he took office. then again, looking at the sorry state of america right now, that probably is not the best example, but the fact of the matter is that we have to look at the present issues and how each candidate looks at them. this means investigating them yourself, not just listening to the slant that your pundits spoonfeed you. let me straighten you out really quick

obama said he wants to give prisoners habeus. ok, where’s the problem with this? give them a day in court so we can actually find out if they’re innocent or guilty. brother, i was in afghanistan for 9.5 months of my life, & i saw what the detention centers were like in kandahar & bagram. the problem with the “war on terror” (a stupid premise in itself to go to war with an EMOTION) is that there are no enemy troops in 3rd reich uniforms. you don’t know who the good and bads guys are. why detain them ALL indefinitely on the TAXPAYER BUCK with only confessions coherced by torture as evidence? i got news for you the reason saddam’s troops surrendered so easily is because they were expecting good treatment from our military. food, shelter and no torture. defending our ideals makes fighting on the ground easier for us. tarnishing that puts troops in jeopardy.

what weapons is he against to use on al qaeda? as far as i can tell, he wants to stop wasting resources and taxpayer money in iraq and go after the REAL enemy. by the way, why did we invade iraq again? all i remember is my commander and half of my combat equipment being boxed up & shipped to kuwait early march 2003. not very conducive to catching bin Laden, you would think.

flip flops about talking to iran’s president? no, he actually never mentioned ahmadinejad. that’s be like going to work and asking your boss’ secretary for a raise. he meant grand ayatollah khomeini, who actually runs the country. if you’re so knowledgeable on jimmy carter history, maybe you can think back a little further to how nixon defied the “isolate your enemy” logic by opening up trade with china.

now mccain wants to continue in iraq, bomb bomb iran and maintain afghanistan. i, my friend, am a conservative, not a NEOCON. regardless of whether we can usurp their natural resources, we CAN NOT AFFORD mccain. our enemies the taliban and al qaeda have reformed in the paki tribal regions, and one of the candidates said he’d get them. why does obama sound more conservative than mccain? you used to depend on conservatives to END WARS! close up shop in iraq, don’t waste time in iran and clean up in afghan/paki. bring them home & keep our $ in the USA.
