McCain speech

"We will stop sending $700B to countries who don't like us anyways"

!!! Talk about drawing a line in the sand.

Hey , I didn't see a single nonwhite person on my big screen. Took them a while but never mind, saw one.

Does he really need to go into the long spiel about his POW experience ?

McCain is kicking some serious ass out there tonight, across the board.

He was doing pretty well until he started beating the war drums i.e. Iran and Georgia. Lost me right there...

He's talking about the oil money but the belligerent tone is surprising coming from a presidential candidate.
Anyways, offshore drilling on day one, nuclear plants in the backyard here we go.

The massive defense spending in Iraq and soon to be Iran does not jive with the spending cut spiel..
