WASHINGTON — John McCain's comments Wednesday seeming to downplay the return of U.S. troops from Iraq set off another presidential campaign fight over the war.
When asked Matt Lauer, host of NBC's Today, whether he had an estimate for when troops would start returning home, McCain said, "No, but that's not too important. What's important is the casualties in Iraq."
Supporters of presumptive Democratic nominee Barack Obama immediately assailed McCain, calling him, in the words of Sen. John Kerry, "unbelievably out of touch."
We already know (from Ben's little segment) that McCain is opposed to the withdrawal of the troops. Stop complaining you little liberals.*
*Please note that I am in no way endorsing McCain or conservatives. It is just that liberals seem to complain about petty things more often than any other party.
