McCain Points Out The Obvious On Obama...

Namely, that the Chosen One, by hammering on McCain's remarks about `a hundred years in Iraq' shows that the Illinois Senator has no experience or background when it comes to the military or national security:

“(Obama) displays a fundamental misunderstanding of history and how we’ve maintained national security, and what we need to do in the future to maintain our security in the face of the transcendent challenge of radical Islamic extremism. And I understand that because he has no experience or background in any of it,” McCain said. “(He) either hasn’t read or (doesn’t) understand…the history of this country in warfare, and the way that we secure alliances and secure the peace–and that’s through military government to government agreements that call for United States presence and mutual defense. Not only in that country itself, but also in the region. Our troops in Japan maintain a military presence in Asia. Our troops in Japan and South Korea maintain stability in Asia. The same thing was true after World War II about our troops in Germany.”

Asked if he is concerned whether Obama’s 100 years argument will win out, McCain said he trusts voters and took a second shot at the Democrat. “I think the American people are smart enough to figure that out….and they’ll understand over time if they don’t know that he has no experience or background on these issues,” McCain said.

Nicely put, I think.

i don't understand why no one is mentioning the fact that the hundred year comment was made three days after we invaded iraq by gen. merrill mcpeak (usaf ret.), a co-chairman of the hussein campaign.
all mccain is doing is repeating what mcpeak said at the time of the invasion.
