McCain's Incredible Boast

Note: From October 12th - 20th posts here will be new but pre-written due to my camping in the mountains of North Carolina where Internet connections are not always available or fast. Thanks for reading!

I was watching the debate last Tuesday night from Nashville and was understandably shocked to hear Senator McCain make the following statement, "I'll get Osama bin Laden, my friends. I'll get him. I know how to get him."

Does that declaration have the same chilling effect on everyone else that it has on me? Did we really hear a U.S. Senator proclaim that he knows how to "get" bin Laden, with the implication that he won't unless we elect him President? In other words, the man who has worn the "country first" label, has certain knowledge that he has not shared with the current administration in order to bring the architect of the 9/11 attacks to justice as soon as humanly possible. Let me ask you; if YOU knew how to bring this terrorist to justice, wouldn't you immediately share that knowledge with those who could put that knowledge into action?

While not agreeing with his politics, before this campaign I did have admiration for Senator McCain and felt he was an honorable man. However, his almost obsessive desire to ascend to the highest office in the land has completely stripped him of any real or perceived honor, and that is indeed sad for any man.

If he "knows" how to "get him," why hasn't he before now? Kinda reminds me of the wicked witch in the Wizard of Oz..."I'll get you my pretty, and you're little dog, too!"

If he does truly know, then he should just do it now and then we can end this war immediately. Wouldn't that be a huge vote getter?
