McCain’s Anti-War Crowd

File this under “whuh?” (Huffpost):

John McCain hasn’t exactly been vague on where he stands on the War in Iraq. He’s not just for it, he wants to have it for one hundred years, and he basically wants to be credited with being the biggest supporter of the “Surge” and General Petraeus. Along the way, he’s painted his primary opponent, Mitt Romney as a timetable-loving, war hero dissing, coddler of Islamic extremists. No one should have any doubts about the extent to which McCain wants to mong himself some wars. Yet, in an exit poll analysis conducted by CNN’s Bill Schneider, anti-war Republicans haven’t seemed to have gotten the memo:

Among those Republicans who disapprove of the war, nearly half voted for McCain, while only a quarter voted for Mitt Romney — even though McCain spent the past few weeks trying to portray Romney as more liberal on the war.

I don’t get it.  Is it a joke?  Or are the Republicans (who make such a big deal about security) actually more concerned with other things?

  1. I do. They do not disapprove of the war per se, only the “handling” of the war. Its the old Vietnam meme “if only the troops where allowed to do their job”.
