If he had any cajones whatsoever, he would get his butt over to Iraq to see with his own eyes what is going over there. He has been there ONCE, just
ONCE, and he wants to be our President. Dang, my grandmother had more courage than Obama.
I can't make heads or tails of what you're trying to say here... or what it has to do with the thread.
Don't you always say that senators, and anyone but President, has no business going overseas to do anything in an official capacity? Why is this different? How exactly is someone who is not yet President supposed to just pop over to Iraq? Also, what about the additional danger posed by his visits, once again, "just to see what's going on"? It is worth all the extra precautions, etc, to have the commander-in-chief there, but is it to have a presidential candidate?
McCain has been a few times, but then again, he's the minority leader in the armed forces senate committee.
