I am going to post this whole thing, because it summarizes quite nicely the situation in Georgia and the Pres Candidates. Specifically, how WRONG Obama is. Again it's his inability to give a straight right answer to begin with that is very worrisome. It's only after a few attempts, once he realizes what appears to be agreed upon, that he changes his mind. All the while McCain, like his view on the surge and domestic oil, already had the RIGHT answer. How much longer is Obama going to be given the free ride from not only the press, but from his own supporters? Stop lying to yourselves on account of skin color. Guilt = Destruction.
McCain, not Obama, was right about Georgia

Mention Georgia a few days ago, and most of us would have thought of the state evoked so sweetly in "Georgia on My Mind," the classic tune sung by Ray Charles. Very few of us had heard of the South Ossetia province of Georgia, the nation with the misfortune to have Russia as its neighbor, until war broke out last week.
Like Kosovo, Bosnia, Kuwait and other unfamiliar places before, Ossetia reminds us that a small, remote corner of the globe can explode into an international crisis. One who was up to speed on Georgia and the menace it faced from Russia was veteran Sen. John McCain. He had visited the Caucasian nation three times in a dozen years. When fighting erupted, the presumptive Republican presidential candidate got on the phone to gather details and issued a statement Friday summarizing the situation, tagging Russia as the aggressor and demanding it withdraw its forces from the sovereign territory of Georgia.
It took first-term Sen. Barack Obama three tries to get it right. Headed for a vacation in Hawaii, the presumed Democratic candidate for commander in chief issued an even-handed statement, urging restraint by both sides. Later Friday, he again called for mutual restraint but blamed Russia for the fighting. The next day his language finally caught up with toughness of McCain's.
