“Taking in my opponent's performances is a little like watching a big summer blockbuster, and an hour in realizing that all the best scenes were in the trailer you saw last fall.”
No matter what you may think of McCain, the guy is a fighter and if he keeps hammering away at Obama he’s going to pull this thing off.
“I think this President has shown a remarkable disrespect for his office, for the moral dimensions of leadership, for his friends, for his wife, for his precious daughter. It is breathtaking to me the level to which that disrespect has risen.” John Edwards on President Clinton in 1999
Russia and Georgia basically at war with each other, and with any conflict in that region, the smallest spark can ignite a worldwide conflict that this planet has never seen before. Just thinking about this conflict escalating gets me nervous, especially when you consider Russia’s historical ties to Iran, and a rouge regime in North Korea wanting to flex their military might.
While many liberals think John McCain is a warmonger, his military training and experience is a huge asset when dealing with such a crisis. Obama is untested and has already been questioned on his willingness to open diplomatic communications with people like Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
This is the one area where McCain is head and shoulders above Obama, and every other candidate who ran for president.
The crisis between Georgia and Russia is extremely complicated. Whose judgment do you trust, a first term US Senator, or a man who’s devoted his entire life and risked his life defending and fighting for freedom? I think the choice is very clear. We need a leader, not a celebrity.
