Richard Milhous McCain Debates John Fitzgerald Obama



Last night, I kept expecting Obama to echo Kennedy’s warning in his 1960 debate with Nixon about the need to close the non-existent “missile gap.” While he was more restrained than McCain on Iraq and Iran, his differences on other foreign policy issues were generally paper thin.Like McCain, Obama endorsed the General Jack Ripperesque move of admitting Ukraine and Georgia to NATO (thus potentially obligating the U.S. to escalate to World War III in case of a border dispute with Russia) and a “surge” of more U.S. troops into Afghanistan. Obama’s statements on U.S. military incursions into Pakistan made McCain look almost cool-headed by comparison (no small accomplishment).
