McCain: No confidence

I don't want to seem picky, but how come the loudest voices criticizing Rumsfeld disgusting performance in front of the troops are Republicans?

Have the Democrats become so nutless that they won't even swing at a gopher ball?

"I said no. My answer is still no. No confidence," McCain said.

He estimated an additional 80,000 Army personnel and 20,000 to 30,000 more Marines would be needed to secure Iraq.

"I have strenuously argued for larger troop numbers in Iraq, including the right kind of troops — linguists, special forces, civil affairs, etc.," said McCain, R-Ariz. "There are very strong differences of opinion between myself and Secretary Rumsfeld on that issue."

When asked if Rumsfeld was a liability to the Bush administration, McCain responded: "The president can decide that, not me."
Just a reminder, Senator McCain: we had linguists. Bush fired them for being gay.
