In an interview, a top adviser to John McCain, Charlie Black, made the comment that another terror attack would benefit John McCain in the election. The Obama team hit the roof. The cried foul because it plays into the politics of fear.
Well, I'm sorry. Even though McCain and Charlie have apologized (See Full Story), I think Charlie is right. Obama is not the pillar of terrorist safety for our country. His praise of the Supreme Court decision about Guantanamo Bay and his stance on eavesdropping just proves that. He like the rest of the Democrats seemed to have forgotten "911" and think the George W. Bush is more dangerous than Al Qaeda, Hamas, or even the Taliban.
Charlie spoke the truth. He knows that a shock of another terrorist attack will cause the electorate to seek the safety of a leader who is strong on terrorism. This is unlike the Democrats who cheer lead for our enemies to win. That is all we've gotten from them for the last 4 years when the subject of Iraq is discussed. I don't think I need to repeat how many times the Democrats, in mass, have repeated the lie that the war in Iraq is a quagmire; or, that it is lost; or, how the surge isn't working.
What's worse? A Charlie Black who tells the truth. Or, a bunch of Democrats, especially Barack Obama, that won't be truthful about the conditions in Iraq?
