John McCain Hopes To Whitewash His Absurd Iraq Marketplace Photo-opt With A Smear Of Democrats Who Oppose The War
Senator John McCain is now backtracking on his blantantly wrong claims of greatly improved security conditions in Iraq, and instead now going after Democrats who favor a deadline for U.S. troop withdrawals.
McCain who has invested his entire presidential ambitions on his Iraq War policies, is quickly finding his polling standings slipping away. With Fred Thompson added to the race, McCain runs third, and is increasingly unlikely to win the GOP nomination in 2008.
Lagging badly in fundraising, with credibility problems due to his Iraqi marketplace photo-opt, McCain's campaign is reeling from problems and sinking very fast. The McCain campaign would like to shakeup the campasign staff, however it is both the candidate and his prowar platform that are at issue and the real cause of his woes.
