Change We Can Believe In; Exhibit #3

John McCain punks foreign policy bufoon softee amateur Barack Obama.

In the Democratic debate the night before, he said, “Sen. Obama made the statement that if al-Qaeda came back to Iraq after he withdraws . . . then he would send military troops back.”

“I have some news,” McCain said, as reported by MSNBC. “Al-Qaeda is in Iraq.”

So Obama responded:

“I have some news for John McCain,” Obama said. “There was no such thing as al Qaeda in Iraq until George Bush” took the country to war there.

Obama mocked McCain’s past pledges to follow Osama bin Laden to the gates of hell, saying “so far all he’s done is follow George Bush.”

“I’ve been paying attention, John McCain,” Obama said, shaking his head and laughing in mock bewilderment during the riff.

Uhh…Nice comeback, Barack!

Here is what Barack said in the debate:

Now, I always reserve the right for the president — as commander in chief, I will always reserve the right to make sure that we are looking out for American interests. And if al Qaeda is forming a base in Iraq, then we will have to act in a way that secures the American homeland and our interests abroad. So that is true, I think, not just in Iraq, but that’s true in other places. That’s part of my argument with respect to Pakistan.

What the heck does Mr. Change We Can Believe In® think is going on right now? That al-Qaeda is setting up In-and-Out Burger franchises in Baghdad?
