McCain Has it Right

More kudos to Sen. John McCain for opposing the Iraqi Surrender Group’s recommendations.

McCain continues to stand tall, taking courageous positions which at the present moment may not be politically popular, but in the long run, are absolutely essential to bolster our national security.

Some quotes of his from yesterday’s Senate Armed Services Committee hearing:

"There's only one thing worse than an overstressed Army and Marine Corps, and that's a defeated Army and Marine Corps. I believe [the ISG report] is a recipe that will lead to our defeat sooner or later in Iraq,"

On negotiations with Iran and Syria: "I don't believe that a peace conference with people who are dedicated to your extinction has much short-term gain."

McCain is showing us that he has the right stuff.
