War for Oil: McCain’s Latest Gaffe

“My friends, I will have an energy policy that we will be talking about, which will eliminate our dependence on oil from the Middle East that will prevent us from having ever to send our young men and women into conflict again in the Middle East.” — John McCain

More of the “straight talk” that’s going to be the undoing of McCain.

Subsequently, Grandpa Munster said he didn’t mean the U.S. went to war in Iraq five years ago over oil. “No, no, I was talking about that we had fought the Gulf War for several reasons,” he unconvincingly told reporters. McCain now claims that the word “again” has been misconstrued by the press. Uh-huh.
