John McCain flip flops once again. Will the media notice? As Blue Gal would say. Ha! It's McCain's Media after all and they just love the guy. I couldn't have said this any better...Via email:
This afternoon John McCain went out of his way to imply that President Bush shouldn't be criticized for posting the "Mission Accomplished" banner. Ironically, yesterday the Whitehouse took responsibility for the banner. McCain's statement harkens back to the Whitehouse's attempts in 2003 to push the blame for the banner on to the back of the sailors.
NEIL CAVUTO (host): Senator -- after a conflict means after the conflict, and many argue the conflict isn't over.
McCAIN: Well, then why was there a banner that said mission accomplished on the aircraft carrier? Look, the -- I have said a long time that reconstruction of Iraq would be a long, long, difficult process, but the conflict -- the major conflict is over, the regime change has been accomplished, and it's very appropriate.
Will McCain be asked why he flip flopped on this issue at least? Anyone out there? Hello Michael Scherer are you around? Maybe you might want to try and bail him out of this one too on TIME's website? I'm sure he'll appreciate it.
