Silly Season

Posted by Teresa at 1:19 PM
This is the part I dislike about our modern politics. Again, McCain's comments are
taken out of context:

Avoiding casualties in Iraq is more important than bringing troops
home, Republican John McCain said Wednesday, feeding an outcry
from Democrats who quickly declared him to be out of
touch with the public and the needs of the military
.

Appearing on NBC's "Today Show," McCain was asked if he has
a better estimate for when U.S. troops could leave Iraq.

"No, but that's not too important," McCain said.

"What's important is casualties in Iraq. "Americans are in South
Korea. Americans are in Japan. American troops are in Germany. That's
all fine. American casualties, and the ability to withdraw. We will be able
to withdraw.... But the key to it is we don't want any more Americans in
harm's way."

He's basically saying that what's important is that they come home safely. What is
wrong with that? If there's one thing we've learned from the surge is when we have
more troops on the ground casualties go down.

I'm sure there will be DNC ads with this comment without caring to address his
major point he was making.
