Conservatives like Bill Kristol and John McCain still don’t ‘get’ the defense budget. Nor do they understand 21st Century U.S. military requirements. McCain actually wants to cut the defense spending. Kristol wants to increase defense spending, but doesn’t understand what that the new money must be spent on. Both Kristol and McCain, moreover, lack strategic vision. And both contribute to the failure of strategic vision that is now endemic on the Right.
To Pull or Not to Pull: MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Runs Clip of Sen. McCain Saying Its Time We Pulled the Trigger on Iran
I just caught the YouTube video of Sen. John McCain saying that it was time to pull the trigger on Iran. From the context, of course, McCain is merely saying that we need to impose strict sanctions on Iran – not that it is time to bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, Iran.

Acting like a Latin American caudillo President Obama continues to thumb his nose at Congress, daring Republican members of the House of Representatives to begin impeachment proceedings against him.
Obama’s latest outrage comes in the form of a recess appointment of extremist Craig Becker, who used to represent ACORN and SEIU (Service Employees International Union), to the National [...]

It’s hard to think of the utterly unaccomplished blogger Meghan McCain, who blathers on about things she knows little about in her Valley Girl voice, as an intelligent, well informed person. Glenn Beck went even further on his TV show Friday, calling the self-described progressive Republican a “useful idiot.”
Beck spent time mocking McCain, daughter of fair weather conservative [...]
Under no circumstances is global warming ever to be compared to a religion. It’s cold, hard science, you see: strictly empirical, reliably objective, and certain to be reevaluated whenever new evidence comes to light. Nothing is taken on blind faith. Seriously, it’s all about-
Y’know what? I can’t do this any more. The Left’s doctrine of [...]
WASHINGTON – Sen. John McCain says the movement he led to reform how political campaigns are financed is dead. McCain says the Supreme Court has spoken on the constitutionality of political contributions by corporations. The Arizona Republican had sought to regulate them with a landmark campaign finance law he wrote with Sen. Russ Feingold, D-Wis. [...]
It might be hard to believe for Americans who are used to Obama-worshipping from their MSM, but European media have blamed President Barack Obama for the fiasco at Copenhagen. This even though they celebrated his victory against Sen. John McCain last year as if he were the second coming of the Messiah.
The narrative taking hold is [...]
Via Conservatives4Palin comes this article at the Wall Street Journal (of all places), about Arizona Senator (and the GOP’s presidential nominee last year) John McCain’s appearance on MSNBC’s “Meet the Press” earlier today.
