    I'm not so sure that what McCain said was all that bad or out of touch. Isolationism seems kind of unrealistic in this day and age where everything in the world is so inter-connected, so perhaps he was right to call some of the candidates out on this.

    "Country first ?"

    If he was serious, he'd retire and let somebody else have a job.

    If he was serious, he'd be in favor of ending the wars, and saving trillions of dollars that we can't afford to keep adding to our national debt.

    And, the old fart is trying to dig up Ronald Reagan, the very guy who orchestrated our current economic depression. "Get government out of the way" was Reagan's mantra. So, the Wall Street bankers policed themselves and gambled away all the money, while doling out obscene bonuses for the top executives.
