It isn't. McCain still holds forth that
"It was worth getting rid of Saddam Hussein. He had used weapons of mass destruction, and it's clear that he was hell bent on acquiring them."He used gas on some Kurdish villages many years ago, not on New York, nor did he ever try to, nor did he have the means to, much less the ability to make nuclear weapons at the time or in the near future. The sell-by date on that misrepresentation is long past.
In Simi Valley last night, Romney praised Bush for showing the world that there are "consequences to attacking the US." There have been - for millions who had nothing to do with it and for tens of thousands sent off to acquire oil leases at the cost of life, limb and sometimes sanity along with the honor and reputation of the United States of America.
Both of them never miss a chance to excoriate Democrats for wanting to end the war that McCain is willing to make permanent and Romney brags about the difficulty they will face when debating a Republican. Neither realizes that it's three quarters of the country who want out, not some easily labeled minority or that they may have considerable difficulty not being run out of Washington on a flagpole come November if the jingo jive doesn't stop and the supply side economic voodoo doesn't stop and the lies don't end. There will come a point where calling people Dems and Libs and similar balbative bullshit isn't going to hide the fact that there are enough pissed off people to vote these phony bastards and their phony war and their P.T. Barnum economic policies into oblivion.
