Sky will be perennially blue!
The ongoing cholesterol problem in the country (and with Cheetah’s) will be eradicated!
Erectile dysfunction will be a thing of the past!
Repbulicans will be compassionate conservatives!
Me thinks John McSame doth bluster with ego aforethought, just a bit much.
McCain, in a speech he will deliver today in Columbus, OH has some interesting predictions for what will happen in the first four years WHEN he is President of the United States of America.
Follow me down below, if you will.
Sen. John McCain – envisioning his election to the presidency and the state of affairs at the end of what would be his first-term – thinks the Iraq war will be won but the threat from the Taliban in Afghanistan won’t yet be eliminated, even though Osama bin Laden will be captured or killed.
You know, this line of B.S. sounds somewhat like something I’ve heard before. Let me think….

President George W Bush on Friday vowed to capture Osama bin Laden ‘dead or alive’ and said the United States will keep the terror suspect on the run.
Bush, speaking at a news conference at his ranch in Crawford, Texas, said if bin Laden has fled to Pakistan, the US can count on the support of President Pervez Musharraf.
“We believe he (Musharraf) will help us, if in fact he (bin Laden) happens to be in Pakistan,” said Bush.
“Who knows where he is. But one thing is for certain: He is on the losing side of a rout,” he said.
He said, “The US is on the hunt and he knows that we are on the hunt. And I like our position better than his.”
Let’s move forward in time, a few years and hear again from our not-so-esteemed Republican President while he plays that record again that we’ve heard so many times, that Republican Bumper Sticker Slogan, “The Spin I’m In.”

Some wonder whether Iraq is a central front in the war on terror. Among the terrorists, there is no debate. Hear the words of Osama Bin Laden: “This Third World War is raging” in Iraq. “The whole world is watching this war.” He says it will end in “victory and glory, or misery and humiliation.”
The terrorists know that the outcome will leave them emboldened, or defeated. So they are waging a campaign of murder and destruction. And there is no limit to the innocent lives they are willing to take.
The lesson of this experience is clear: The terrorists can kill the innocent, but they cannot stop the advance of freedom. The only way our enemies can succeed is if we forget the lessons of September the 11th, if we abandon the Iraqi people to men like Zarqawi, and if we yield the future of the Middle East to men like Bin Laden. For the sake of our nation’s security, this will not happen on my watch.
Ohhhhh, realllllly? What is it that won’t happen on a Republican’s watch? Innocents being killed and maimed? Bin Laden still at large? Actual National Security? Campaigns of murder and destruction?
Silly me. It seems like all of that is still happening, and it’s still on a Republican’s watch.
Back to our buddy, McCain.
McCain’s speech, to be delivered in Columbus, Ohio, Thursday, also lists objectives he intends to achieve in his first term – if the presumptive Republican nominee is elected president.
The Arizona senator, who was a prisoner of war during the Vietnam conflict, will say he believes the United States will have a smaller “military presence” in Iraq that will not “play a direct combat role,” and he predicts that al Qaeda in Iraq will be defeated, according to a text of his prepared remarks.
The message is clear. A vote for John McCain will deliver unto this country the exact same swagger and braggadocio that we’ve come to know and hate from our current Republican President as well as the same time tested lies and deceits.
McSame. If the name fits, …….
