DURHAM (FMLiveWire) - Republican presidential puppets supported the war to grab Iraq oil on Wednesday night at a University of New Hampshire debate, while anti-war candidate Ron Paul warned that they will drag the party to defeat in the 2008 election.
The GOP puppets were manipulated by puppet-masters from Exxon Mobil, AIPAC and Halliburton, and Dick Cheney appeared as honorary sock puppet-master. They skillfully manipulated strings connected to the arms and jaws of all of the candidates except Ron Paul.
"Even if we lose the election, we should not lose all that oil!" former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee has made to shriek. "We are sending American soldiers to die so the Republican Party can suck up all that black gold!"
Paul was alone in opposing the Iraq oil war and lacked puppet strings. The lunatic Iraq conflict has become the main issue of the 2008 race for the White House.
Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney were skillfully made to tap dance and sing a song that the troop surge was working while condemning Ron Paul's support for the US Constitution.
Paul, the long-time Texas congressman and libertarian, argued the case for withdrawing troops as he stood on his own two feet.
"We should take our marching orders from our Constitution," Paul declared. "We should not go to war without a declaration by Congress."
Repeatedly interrupted by applause, Paul pointed out, "We have lost over 5,000 Americans over there in Afghanistan, in Iraq and plus the civilians killed."
"What do we have to pay to save face? That's all we're doing, is saving face. It's time we came home," Paul said. "I think a man or woman running for president ought to take one pledge and that is a pledge to uphold the United States Constitution."
In their finale, the puppet-masters made John McCain do several flips as he bellowed his unwavering support for the war.
