Republican Candidates: “Iraq? Afghanistan? Huh?”
Rick Perry has been catching shit lately for flipflopping on Afghanistan. “Bring the troops home NOW.” “We need at least 40,000 troops in Afghanistan.”
But it’s not just Perry. The campaign websites of Rick Perry, Mitt Romney and Michele Bachmann all have something in common: Afghanistan and Iraq aren’t mentioned. Anywhere.
What happened to “National Security!” and “You’re either with us or you’re with the terrorists!” "Support Our Troops!"
Apparently that issue is passé now. Two countries — whose invasions have cost us trillions of dollars — aren’t even mentioned on the websites of three major GOP presidential candidates. That explains why Perry’s responses are so contradictory and incoherent when the subject comes up.
Maybe this subject should be brought into debates more often. Democratic strategists: can you say “Achilles Heel?”
