McCain Mocks Clueless Obama

One of the more pathetic moments watching the Democrat debate last night was seeing these two hapless mopes fumble the simplest of national security questions from a sympathetic Tim Russert.

As the rambling wore on, I became more convinced than ever John McCain can shred either of these lightweights.

He's wasting no time.
Republican presidential hopeful John McCain mocked Democrat Barack Obama on Wednesday for saying he would take action as president "if al-Qaida is forming a base in Iraq."

"When you examine that statement, it's pretty remarkable," McCain told a crowd in Tyler, Texas.

"I have some news. Al-Qaida is in Iraq. It's called `al-Qaida in Iraq,'" McCain said, drawing laughter at Obama's expense.

Obama quickly answered back, telling a rally at Ohio State University in Columbus, "I do know that al-Qaida is in Iraq."

"So I have some news for John McCain," he added, saying there was no al-Qaida presence in Iraq until President Bush invaded the country.

That, of course, isn't true.

The Messiah needs to read up and stop spouting anti-war talking points, or he'll soon find himself damaged beyond repair on the national security issue. His admitting not even paying attention to Afghanistan on his subcommittee role because he was busy campaigning was astonishingly naive.

I guess he's courting that all-important Code Pink vote.

Update: Hot Air has the videos.
