McCain is a large part of the GOP’s problem

Several years ago, a mob stormed our embassy in Islamabad and killed two Americans. Where was the GOP outrage then?

Subsequently, two more in Africa were bombed and lives were lost. Again, there was no suspicious outcry, and foreign aid to Pakistan continued.

Sen. John McCain should be the last person to criticize. In the fall of 2008, when our personal investments and the national economy were going down the toilet, he repeatedly said the economy is fundamentally sound.

With two unnecessary wars in progress, he repeated “Bomb, bomb Iran.” He insisted that Sarah Palin was qualified. Years ago, he said Iraq would be a short war.

And he continues to misstate and predict incorrectly on his many TV appearances.
