John McCain: What is this election's most dangerous idea?
John McCain: From Senator Clinton, I think it’s dangerous to have government mandates that all Americans are required to have health insurance. I think that’s very dangerous because of the impact it’ll have on the highest quality healthcare in America. I think that by far, the most dangerous is that espoused by all the Democratic candidates and congressman Ron Paul that we set a date for withdrawal from Iraq. I believe that’s a date for surrender. I believe if we do it then there will be chaos and genocide in the region and we will be back. So if they say we have to set a date for immediate withdrawal, in my view that it should be dictated by events on the ground, not by an artificial deadline.
And I finally might add if the Democrats are gonna run the war in Iraq, and it’s anything like the way they’re running Congress, we’re in deep trouble.
