Ron Paul Approves This Message

leave a comment »

In case you were somehow still unclear on Ron Paul’s Iraq policy, here it is in a no-frills message to New Hampshire voters:

 To recap, Paul will end the war in Iraq and the war on terror immediately upon being sworn into office. That means he will withdraw (not redeploy, withdraw. No Clintonesque fun with semantics for Ron Paul!) all troops from Iraq. Nevermind the mass carnage that may ensue….

 Anyway, in case you wondered, Paul is at 6.8 percent in NH right now, behind Romney, Giuliani, and McCain.

KUDOS! McCain Joins Troops in Iraq for Thanksgiving

leave a comment »

John McCain’s military credentials have been proven time and again, but what better way to remind people than to spend Thanksgiving with the troops in Iraq? He was joined by some fellow lawmakers: Joe Lieberman, I-Conn.; Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.; Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga.; and John Barrasso, R-Wyo. americanrevolution says kudos, McCain (and all the rest). It would be cynical to dismiss this as a publicity stunt, as such a trip comes not without a certain level of discomfort and risk. But it fits in nicely with McCain’s dogged fight to get back into the Presidential race. The Straight Talk Express rolls on albeit over very bumpy terrain.
