Got on a conference call with Tom McClintockSubmitted by BillyBoy on Fri, 12/11/2009 - 01:50
He spoke of the constitutionality of having to vote for war via Congress, and how important it is to follow the Constitution. If I could have spoken, I would have reminded him that he voted to give Arnold Palmer a gold medal and placed a direct tax on the banks bonuses. Both unconstitutional. He had a poll on Afghanistan from the listeners. 30% supported getting out right now. 10 percent is cool with the troop level increase, and 60% want a major increase to come in and wipe it out.
I had many questions:
Nobody in this call is asking why did they attack us in the first place?
What is the mission? What does a "win" in Afghanistan look like?
He claims that the Taliban is the agent that trained Al Queda. I would have asked him about France, Germany and the US who trained them as well?
This guy was a Ron Paul endorsed Republican. I mean, WTF???
