McCain: Romney Favored Iraq Withdrawal

How is this for spin?
McCain: Romney Favored Iraq Withdrawal / "SARASOTA, Fla. - John McCain accused Mitt Romney of wanting to withdraw troops from Iraq, drawing immediate protest from his Republican presidential rival who said: 'That's simply wrong and it's dishonest, and he should apologize.'

The fight for Florida grew ever more intense Saturday ahead of the state's pivotal primary as a fairly civil debate over economic records and leadership credentials spiraled into an all-out showdown.

As the two candidates campaigned along the state's southwest coast, McCain sought the upper hand with a new line of criticism, telling reporters in Ft. Meyers about Iraq: 'If we surrender and wave a white flag, like Senator Clinton wants to do, and withdraw, as Governor Romney wanted to do, then there will be chaos, genocide, and the cost of American blood and treasure would be dramatically higher.'
American Treasure. Isn't that the name of a Hollywood pretend movie -- oh... it is "National Treasure."
