From Ana comes the news of the first high-profile Republican to criticize House minority leader John Boehner’s comment yesterday that American blood and money is “a small price” for what may someday emerge from Iraq. Thus spake John McCain:
“He ought to retract it.” … “He misspoke. With all due respect, every American wounded or sacrificed is the greatest possible price to pay,” and we should all be grateful, “particularly those of us who sit in relative safety while those young men and women are fighting.”
“Particularly those of us who sit in relative safety.” Well said, Senator. Occasionally we still see flashes of the guy I crossed over to vote for in the 2000 primary.
Again, I ask Jim Ogonowski: will you call on Minority Leader Boehner to retract his remark and apologize? And, if he does not do so, will you nonetheless support his leadership if you are elected to Congress?
