Jane Lake and John McCain!


John McCain says that the administration misled the public regarding Iraq in letting them believe the war would be like "a day at the beach".

Number 1: Nobody believed that. There were peace marches everywhere including here in New York where it was made very clear what the implications of war were.

Number 2: This is obvious political maneuvering to distance himself from Bush. I do not respect that at all!

Number 3: In 2004, McCain said, "Our choice wasn't between a benign status quo and the bloodshed of war," McCain said. "It was between war and a graver threat. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Not our critics abroad. Not our political opponents."

If WMD's were found in Iraq, Bush and the Republicans would have had a ticker tape parade down 5th avenue! It is only because they were not that this has blown out of proportion. Not that I would have been happy about that either!

I am looking for the Presidential candidate who will say "war is wrong, period, and I as President will keep our country and its people out of any war, and use every other peaceful means in my power to resolve conflict."

Any takers?

Sorry to always be partially disagreeing with you but….
First off one of your points is invalid

Number 1: Nobody believed that. There were peace marches everywhere including here in New York where it was made very clear what the implications of war were.
” The people protesting only represented a minority of people who were against the war and didn’t believe there were weapons of mass destruction in iraq. Just because there were allot of demonstrations doesn’t mean there were actually allot of people who disagreed with the war or its motivations. Also its pretty much common knowledge now that the bush administration greatly exaggerated the threat iraq posed.

As too your second point “
Number 2: This is obvious political maneuvering to distance himself from Bush. I do not respect that at all!” What sort of politician wouldn’t distance himself from probably the worst president in the last 50 years? And certainly one of the least popular, Even if he doesn’t pay attention to the polls someone should.

I understand you’re looking for an antiwar candidate, and I understand where you’re coming from and agree with the sentiment, but honestly, such a candidate would have no chance in the current political environment so no one is going to come out plainly against war these days. No one in the big 2 I should say, and don’t get me wrong I think the 2 party system is deeply flawed. It allows people to think in extremes, just as one example, and it should be torn asunder.

Have a nice day
Pat

Your points are very valid. We knew very well that the war would be a long one, that if we overthrew Saddam that we would have to fix it. Bush never misled the public about what had to be done in Iraq.
