The entire pile of BS which is today's Repug party is sickening. You might think the odds are stacked against them but forget it!They are the underhanded controllers of our modern built to be stolen Political system. I said a long time ago if we do not figure out how to combat the Repug disinformation juggernaut we are shoveling shit against the tide and our so called leaders have not.Amidst all this mess here and abroad McCain is in Iraq looking at the successful failure and showing our soldiers he is their leader. I am pissed he got the okay to fly there on his own. Hell you know they won't let Barack go. We have a hell of a fight and I keep seeing Rove over my shoulder!
It get's worse! Cheney is also there with Bush's setup successor McCain and it still gets worse! Sen. John McCain arrived in Baghdad on Sunday, the U.S. Embassy confirmed, marking his first trip to the war-ravaged nation since becoming the presumed Republican candidate for president. McCain traveled there with Sens. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, and Joseph Lieberman, I-Connecticut, both of whom serve on the Armed Services Committee with McCain, the committee's ranking member. The visit was unannounced for security reasons, but McCain's office had indicated he planned to go there.
The trip was McCain's eighth to Iraq since the U.S.-led invasion five years ago. All three senators are outspoken advocates of the "surge" strategy -- sending additional troops to Iraq -- and McCain has credited the strategy with reported dips in violence there. also, Graham and Lieberman are high-profile McCain supporters. Critics question whether U.S. taxpayers are bankrolling a campaign junket. McCain campaign aides have openly said they hope the trip shows him to be authoritative and comfortable on the world stage. Bush's replacement in Baghdad with Cheney
Vice President Dick Cheney and Sen. John McCain vowed in meetings with Iraq's prime minister Monday that the U.S. would maintain a long-term military presence in Iraq until al-Qaida is defeated there. Explosions went off near the heavily fortified Green Zone shortly after Cheney arrived. Helicopter gunships circled central Baghdad, but no details were immediately available on the cause of the explosions. The presumptive Republican candidate for president, who has linked his political future to military success in Iraq, met with Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki shortly before the Iraqi leader began separate talks with Cheney.
Proving he is Bush's replacement by reiterating what Cheney said McCain stressed that it was important to maintain the U.S. commitment in Iraq, where a U.S.-Iraq military operation is under way to clear al-Qaida from its last urban stronghold of Mosul, 225 miles northwest of Baghdad. Violence has dropped throughout the capital with an influx of some 30,000 additional U.S. soldiers as well as a Sunni revolt against al-Qaida and a cease-fire by radical Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr's Mahdi Army militia. McCain, Cheney agree US in Iraq for long haul
They fail to remind you that violence is down in Baghdad primarily because most of its residents have abandoned their homes and fled. They are now part of the two million nomads thanks to Bush's hell on earth Cheney and McCain also call success. What is worse is McCain and Cheney will both be visiting Oman and other important allies in the middle east further proving that McCain being Bush's heir is a foregone conclusion. The final proof follows!
New York Times Saturday, March 15, 2008;Sen. John McCain plans at least one campaign event on his week-long congressional trip to Europe and the Middle East: a March 20 fundraiser in London. An invitation sent out by the campaign says the luncheon will be held at Spencer House, St. James's Place, "by kind permission of Lord Rothschild OM GBE and the Hon Nathaniel Rothschild." Tickets to the invitation-only event cost $1,000 to $2,300.- Kinda scary. His "foreign policy tour" will get all kinds of sycophantic media coverage. I'm afraid the corporatocracy has made its choice as Dave Dubya says.
I am afraid it is a foregone conclusion that Mccain will take this mess over! what do you say?
