according to CNN
“The sharpest exchange in the debate came when Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts, was asked about the McCain campaign’s charge that he once said he favored a strict timetable for removing troops from Iraq.
Romney has consistently denied ever having backed a timetable and said McCain was taking a small portion of a quote out of context.
“It’s simply wrong,” Romney said. “By the way, raising it a few days before the Florida primary, when there was very little time for me to correct the record, falls in the kind of dirty tricks that Ronald Reagan would have found reprehensible.” But McCain, the Arizona senator who has strongly backed President Bush’s Iraq policy, accused Romney of hedging after public support for the war waned.”
OK, if it is so why state talker McCain would not say in a few days before the Florida primary that “Romney of hedging after public support for the war waned” instead of lying about Romney embracing a timetable foe withdraw ?
McCain may be right that Romney should support surge back then in more clear words. I would agree with McCain in that.
But I am troubled by the fact that instead of criticizing Romney for not clear enough supporting the surge , McCain start making stories about Romney accepting a timetable. Why in order to make a legitimate point McCain has to lie?
Is it the high moral ground on which McCain is making gains?

CNN super Tuesday republican debates;
McCain versus Romney:
“ I am a leader and I was leading out of patriotism not for profit.”
Does it mean that McCain is discounting all those who are making a leaving by making a profit by entrepreneurship? Is it enough to be hero to diminish all those who are keeping economy running by making personal profits? How can McCain be a president of the USA if he is mocking the idea of making profit in the USA?
May be he should just apply for position of Defense secretary in Romney administration?
