    Let's keep it this way. Had McCain won in 2008: we would still have 100,000+ troops in Iraq; Bin Laden would still be releasing recorded messages; we would have sent troops into Egypt, Libya, Syria and who knows where else; and we would be in a war with Iran.

    I know it is difficult for Liberal's to understand that most people are perfectly capable of taking care of themselves and actually they have to. When you give one person a subsity check someone else has to provide it. I didn't listen to your speech. But I heard you said we need to do something about the deficit. Now is a good time to start. If you are going to make an omlet you have to break a few eggs.

    Nope. All you have to do is read his lips. No flux capacitors or Hagal C]crystals needed.

    Those are policies that he has advocated over the past 4 years. As Commander-In-Chief he would have sent in the boots. Those are McCain's words, not mine.
