ARLINGTON, Va., July 19 /Standard Newswire/ -- Today, McCain 2008 Senior Foreign Policy Advisor Randy Scheunemann issued the following statement:
"The difference between John McCain and Barack Obama is that Barack Obama advocates an unconditional withdrawal that ignores the facts on the ground and the advice of our top military commanders. John McCain believes withdrawal must be based on conditions on the ground. Prime Minister Maliki has repeatedly affirmed the same view, and did so again today. Timing is not as important as whether we leave with victory and honor, which is of no apparent concern to Barack Obama. The fundamental truth remains that Senator McCain was right about the surge and Senator Obama was wrong. We would not be in the position to discuss a responsible withdrawal today if Senator Obama's views had prevailed."

Yeah, John, way to go. This tells it like it is, but of course the MSM will not report it, or do their best to minimize it.

What a sinister connotation in referring to Johnny Mac's words as the "Maliki comment"....Ooooooo....
Another lame attempt of the old/new media to make ANYTHING said against the messiahobama made to sound as unthinkable as the n-word.
The truth is, Bhussein doesn't give a rats ass about any kind of honorable victory...he only advocates withdrawal to appease his hard left, bush-hating supporters.
But the annointed one probably will change his mind on that more times and Kerry was pictured in front of the Waffle House in the last presidential campaign.
Press, left, liberals...we're going to point out stuff about your boy...whether you like it or not...so get over your "I control the state" syndrome and have some popcorn.
