Iraq Speech: Credit to McCain & Brownback's Perfidy

The American Spectator rightly notes that John McCain deserves credit for political courage in fighting for a surge for months. This is true whether the surge is blocked by Congress (unlikely) or whether it fails. At least he was willing to be a leader on an unpopular issue.

Sam Brownback by contrast, did his best to cut the legs out from under the Commander-in-Chief. This is something we expect of the opposition party, but not from the President's 'allies.' It will not help his Presidential campaign.

Back to the top.
