Greg Sargent reports on one of the many attack themes coming from Team McCain:
On a conference call with conservative bloggers this afternoon, John McCain launched what may be his most direct attack yet on Barack Obama’s national security credentials, saying flat out that Obama is incapable of protecting America and lacks the necessary traits to keep it secure from foreign threats. In a reference to Obama’s declared willingness to meet with the leader of Iran, McCain said: “I think [it] is an unacceptable position, and shows that Senator Obama does not have the knowledge, the experience, the background to make the kind of judgments that are necessary to preserve this nation’s security.” That seems like an unequivocal declaration that Obama is incapable of protecting this country. In the past, McCain has raised doubts about Obama’s national security cred, but to our knowledge has never taken the step of declaring outright that he’s unfit to defend the country. McCain’s comments also go considerably farther than McCain did in his comments this morning about Bush’s Israel speech attacking Dems.
Make the kind of judgments? Let’s review that “judgment” made on March 19, 2003 – the day we invaded Iraq. Now who was smart enough to say this was a mistake even before March 19, 2003 and who is stupid enough to think this decision was a good one?
