McCain Pooh-Poohs a Time Frame for Withdrawal

John McCain dug his heels even further into the proverbial Iraqi soil Wednesday morning when he rearticulated his commitment to the U.S. staying in Iraq, claiming that a time frame for withdrawal is “not too important” and that Barack Obama’s resistance to the war ignores how the U.S. is “succeeding” in the country.


MCSAME sounds just like Bush, his evil twin...has he been given Bush's old speeches? He doesn't think much is important when it comes to the military, does he? :evil:

Well...how about beer heiresses? Stressed military men and women are more likely to buy beer, especially when they're at home...you know, between deployments.

yeah........they'll buy lot's of beer to drown themselves in sorrow as they realize those who are at the helm of the gop don't give a frickin damn when, if or how they come home from a war that has nothing to do with the security of our country.

the suicide rate among our nations greatest heroes is at an alarmingly alltime high. when they hear the garbage from mr mcshames mouth about why it's not at all important when they come home i'm betting the overwhelming majority wonder just how is it that morons like mcshame could possibly get even 1 vote in november.

i hope this statement gets plenty of display in the military blogosphere.

Bush Administration Announces ‘Aspirational Timetables’ In Iraq; Will McCain Call It ‘Defeat?

Yesterday, the U.S. agreed to remove combat troops from Iraqi cities by next June and from the country by the end of 2011. According to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, the two countries agreed on forming “aspirational timetables” for withdrawal:

We have agreed that some goals, some aspirational timetables for how that might unfold, are well worth having in such an agreement.

Although the 2011 target is “prospective,” the embrace of a timetable is a significant development for an administration that has for five years disparaged those advocating any fixed schedule or date for withdrawal.

It is unclear, however, where Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) will stand, as he has marched in lockstep with Bush in railing against any use of “timetables.” In January, for example, McCain said of Mitt Romney’s advocacy of a timeline, “Timetables was the buzzword for those that wanted to get out.” McCain has demagogued the issue, hammering anyone who advocates any form of timetables:

– “If you pass a resolution…that dictates withdrawal and a time for withdrawal, all you’re doing is telling the enemy, ‘hang on, we’re leaving.’” [March 2007]

– “If you set a date for withdrawal, then the consequences of failure are catastrophic.” [8/20/07]

– “An artificial timetable based on political expediency would have led to disaster and could still turn success into defeat.” [7/19/08]

– “They’ll come home with honor. And it won’t be just at a set timetable.” [7/22/08]

In July, after McCain said Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki’s 16-month withdrawal timeline was a “pretty good timetable,” he quickly distanced himself from the “buzzword,” telling ABC two days later, “I didn’t use the word timetable.”

Iraqi and U.S. leaders seem to be agree on the idea of a timetable for reducing the U.S. presence. Will McCain smear the compromise as advocating “defeat” and “surrender” in Iraq?
