We're winning in Iraq

Imagine this - the war in Iraq might not be the biggest issue in the race for the presidency! How ironic? McCain gained support because he was a national security conservative, and now that issue is fizzling out! Romney is gone, so there goes the only economic conservative. We could have used him, considering that Congress is giving away the store to win the election. So Republicans are stuck with a choice between a values candidate (Huckabee) and McCain, who is all over the map on the issues. I don't buy it when he says he is pro-life.
McCain is highjacking the GOP. He's trying to put together a coalition of moderate GOP and independent voters. The value voters will either bolt or stay home on election day. It's 1992 all over again. Where is Ross Perot when we need a candidate to laugh at to take away the pain of impending defeat?

"In the letter, the emir said the difficulty in assigning tasks to potential suicide bombers was caused by increases in U.S. military operations and the formation of U.S.-backed Sunni tribal groups, known as Awakening councils, to fight against al-Qaeda in Iraq.

"We found ourselves in a circle not being able to move, organize or conduct our operations," he wrote. "There was a total collapse in the security structure of the organization."
Al-Qaeda is almost done and finished. It no longer scares anyone," he said."
