Via National Review's Mark Levin:
"One of the primary and most compelling criticisms of the Clinton administration's approach to terrorism was that it treated terrorism as a criminal rather than national-security matter. The enemy declared war on us years earlier, attacking various U.S. targets and killing U.S. citizens, and we indicted them if we could muster enough evidence. Despite 9/11, today many in Congress and the judiciary, with prodding by the media and left-wing (legal) activists, continue to treat the war on terrorism as Clinton did. And one of the most vocal sponsors of this approach is John McCain.
Despite his tough talk about sending more troops to Iraq (the benefit of which is and was debatable), McCain has led an effort to diminish the traditional war-power authority of the president."
This isn't to take away from McCain's heroism and sacrifice shown this country during the Vietnam War. But in my estimation, his yellow dog tatics and proposals are exactly what we don't need now or any time in the future.
I agree with Mark that McCain wants a return to a "kinder and gentler" America under Clinton where we passed up on the chance of getting Bin Laden, because "we don't have anything concrete to hold him on".
God forbid this guy get's any further than the Senate and I will activily oppose his run for President.
