McCain says we’ve “drawn down to pre-surge levels” in Iraq.
Well, technically, no, but we WILL BE down to pre-surge troop levels by the end of July.
Well, actually, not quite, but we WILL BE down to 12,000 MORE TROOPS than the pre-surge level by the end of July.
Why are you nit-picking?
In McCain World, 155,000 = 132,000.
Or maybe the present tense is equivalent to the future tense.
Or maybe 144,000 = 132,000 AND the present tense is equivalent to the future tense.
Look! Over there! Isn’t it terrible how gaffe-prone Barack Obama is?
