Returning from his eighth trip to Iraq, McCain didn’t back down on his promise to see the war through despite yesterday’s tragic milestone of 4,000 deaths. “We’re succeeding. I don’t care what anybody says. I’ve seen the facts on the ground," the Arizona senator insisted a day after a roadside bomb in Baghdad killed four U.S. soldiers and rockets pounded the U.S.-protected Green Zone there, and a wave of attacks left at least 61 Iraqis dead nationwide.
Recent polls indicate that over 60% of the American people 1) oppose Bush/McCain’s handling of the war, 2) want our troops out within a year, 3) think the war wasn’t worth fighting, and, screw you St. McCain —4) think neither side is winning. To summarize, the American people hate the war and want it over, yesterday. But St. McCain doesn’t care. And he continues to dishonestly talk about "success" when even Petraeus admits the surge has objectively failed.
The arrogance is staggering.
