    Yeah I saw that earlier.

    You can't beat McCain's foreign policy experience.

    To bad a Former Democrat had to correct him though. :p:

    No one who has ever mispoken should be elected president.

    Imagine Obama said this. We'd have 100 posts saying pointing to his lack of experience. The board would go bat crap crazy and make all kinds of attributions regarding what his words "really" mean.

    McCain says this and folks here are happy to pass it off as misspeaking.

    Everyone misspeaks. But how folks react to it says a ton about whether they really evaluate candidates by their words and actions or whether they just look for a reason to bash someone.

    Not surprising.

    McCain: "Bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Iran."

    Bull ...... Obama is defended on this board just as much as he is criticized.

    Save your victim card ...... Obama is doing fine without it.

    “I’m sorry,” Mr. McCain said, “the Iranians are training extremists [really mean, threatening, bad, dangerous, extremists .... of some sort... and they're ugly too ... and they want to kill our women and kids ... and they're socialists!], not Al Qaeda.”

    :)

    Sounds like a better plan than bombing Pakistan.

    True McCain did make that comment and while that was a mistake Iran training terrorist organization is not false. They are big supporters and give military training to groups like Hezbolla

    If you look at the posts on this board it is pretty clear that Obama has far more detractors than supporters.

    Just having a little fun, Zrinkill.

    But, in response to your question, I thought we invaded Iraq because they were already there plotting with Saddam to strike the US with devastating WMD?

    And haven't some fairly intelligent, but right-leaning, people on this board claimed that the WMD argument was just a clumsy pretext to prevent Iranian influence from spreading to Iraq after the demise of Saddam Hussein? And yet, according to the administration's most faithful apologists, Iran's fingerprints are all over Iraq which wasn't the case prior to us going in there.

    Things that make you go, hmm.

    It's a message board for a football team. Not just any football team, but a football team in Texas with most of its supporters in that state.

    It's Republican central. :D
