Quotes-start.png "Two years ago, when warning signs were flashing red that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were in serious financial danger, John McCain called for their reform and co-sponsored a bill designed to prevent them from destabilizing the whole economy. Barack Obama did nothing. Even before President Bush hired Gen. David Petraeus to turn around the war in Iraq, John McCain warned that we needed more troops on the ground. He was an immediate and vocal advocate of Gen. Petraeus' surge strategy, which turned a "lost" war into what increasingly looks like a victory. Barack Obama opposed it and advocated withdrawal."
