MoveOn Candles for John McCain
MoveOn.org has launched a new political advertisement to mark the fifth anniversary of Bush’s infamous “Mission Accomplished” speech. The ad, sponsored by the leftwing action group, links the speech with John McCain’s soundbyte in which he talks about being in Iraq for 100 years.
The infamous quote, delivered in a small country hall:
Questioner: President Bush has talked about our staying in Iraq for fifty years…
McCain: Maybe a hundred. Make it one hundred. We’ve been in South Korea, we’ve been in Japan for sixty years. We’ve been in South Korea for fifty years or so. That’d be fine with me as long as Americans are not being injured or harmed or wounded or killed. Then it’s fine with me. I would hope it would be fine with you if we maintain a presence in a very volatile part of the world where Al Qaeda is training, recruiting, equipping and motivating people every single day.
