Reporter calls McCain’s ‘2013’ speech a ‘magic carpet ride.’

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) delivered a speech today in which he provided his vision of what the world might look like by the year 2013 if he is elected president. In 2013, McCain claimed, “the Iraq War has been won,” “Iraq is a functioning democracy,” a “newly formed League of Democracies” has gathered to “to stop the genocide” in Sudan, and the U.S. “has experienced several years of robust economic growth.” One reporter told McCain that his speech sounded more like “a magic carpet ride.” Taking issue with that characterization, McCain said, “I don’t think it has anything to do with fantasy.”
