Haha what a gaffe that was! There should be an asterisk that says *(excluding Afghanistan, Iraq, and possible Iran)

If there was any doubt to the incompetence of McCain, it is all gone now.

McCain, like Bush, except stupider.

We didn't invade Iraq or Afghanistan. We were politely asked to enter these countries, kill or capture there leadership, drastically change their government structure that was emplaced thousands of years ago, and then, never leave. How is that an "invasion"?
[SIZE=3]Definitions of invasion on the Web: [/SIZE]the act of invading; the act of an army that invades for conquest or plunder
We may have plundered, but we did not conquer...yet.

McCain on the piece of paper he has sworn to uphold and defend.

Q: A recent poll found that 55 percent of Americans believe the U.S. Constitution establishes a Christian nation. What do you think?
A: I would probably have to say yes, that the Constitution established the United States of America as a Christian nation.

So, you know, he just doesnt know what he's saying. That's all. So what? Why nitpick our next President into an early grave! The man was a POW for God's sake! Why do you hate freedom!

did McCain go to war alone?
was he the one that made that decision?
how many in the seanate voted the same way....including John Kerry?
good grief
also at the time how many US citizens thought it was a good idea,
I have never seen a list of who all voted for this, but I am sure someone would be happy to post it
