DNC telling the truth, sort of, with McCain ad.

The DNC has begun running a tacky ad called one hundred years. In this ad, John McCain is quoted sort of out of context that John McCain wants to stay in Iraq for one hundred years.

The DNC ad then shows violence upon our troops and asks the question, do you want to stay in Iraq for one hundred years? The Conservatives decry the advertisement because the second half of McCain's comment was that we've been in Japan and Germany as allies for many years, without active hostilities. Well, the obvious question isn't being asked my friends, how many years of hostilities is acceptable for John McCain since the idea of one hundred years of open warfare is apparently unacceptable to him?

According to his website, McCain says we'll never surrender.

McCain: Stand up. We're Americans, we're Americans and we'll never surrender, they will

So hostilities could last one hundred years? As long as both sides refused to surrender, it could easily last a hundred years. It wouldn't be the first hundred years war either.

So for tacky, I'm giving the head shake to the DNC. For honesty, I think it's at worse a coin toss. Yes, they left the obvious explanation of his intent for a less active roll for our troops out, yet his other statements on the war indicate he'll never surrender. Those words by the way are taken from his campaign advertisement, never surrender.

I think the Republicans are being slightly less than honest personally. Especially since McCain hasn't bother to tell us how many years of open and active hostilities would be acceptable, apparently less than one hundred.

McCain's less than truthful complaint, another reason not to like him.
