I hear ya about that pandering. McCain is rellay hitting his stride. Now he will keep the tax cuts. What do ya know about that? Even during a war? Come on John.I am also tired of hearing about how wise his support was for the successful surge. The lessening of violence has so great deal to do with the Sunnis turning against Al Queda and the actions of Al Sadr that McCain’s bravado about the success of the surge threatens to reinforce and prolong the Bush, Cheney and Rove politics of fear. It does so by encouraging the wrong action at the wrong time.
