Arcuri Better Than Meier On Iraq

Reason #4 to vote for Michael Arcuri for Congress:

I would love it if Michael Arcuri would get more specific on a plan to get America out of Iraq. After all, there is a huge amount of ambiguity in his statements on the Iraq War. Arcuri says that there should be a better plan for the Iraq War, but it's not at all clear what kind of plan Arcuri would support if we put him into Congress.

Considered on its own, Mike Arcuri's campaign performance on Iraq has been disappointing. However, when put into the larger context of the race against Ray Meier, Arcuri has clearly done better than Meier.

Michael Arcuri generally opposes the Iraq War without letting us know much about the form of his opposition. Ray Meier, on the other hand, is still holding onto the Republican fantasy that there is nothing about the Iraq War that needs fixing. Ray Meier's position seems to be that everything is going great in Iraq, and all that the United States needs to do there is more of the same.

Ray Meier's position on Iraq is deluded to the point of insanity. Given the choice, vague opposition to the war is much preferable to pro-war politics based more on blind faith and political loyalty to George W. Bush than any connection to reality.
