Just a quick note for now–
In today’s (7/23) New York Times, Maureen Dowd ends her column with this point:
“The Angry One can try to paint The One as having bad judgment. But who is being advised by Kissinger, the man who helped keep us in Vietnam and get us into Iraq?”
The Angry One, McCain, is furious that, in his eyes, Obama is able to garner support for his withdrawal plans from an Iraqi government that’s functional only because of the “surge” that Obama opposed. Of course, given McCain’s own change of heart on whether the Iraqi government’s judgment is trustworthy (see my last post for more on this), his fury seems somewhat misplaced.
More to the point, though, is that Dowd points to yet another McCain adviser whose judgment is terrible and who cares absolutely nothing about democracy.
Until McCain can demonstrate any understanding of the presidency as anything other than a military command post (which it isn’t), he has no business being president.
