The Obama advisers light into McCain, his support for the Iraq War and his general attitude toward combat on afternoon media call.

Listen to the full call here.

Rice says the Republican’s “tendency is to shoot first and to ask questions later,” saying he “cheerled Bush’s decision to take our eye off the ball and start a war in Iraq that had nothing to do with 9/11.”

Clarke joins in on slamming “quick-draw McCain,” calling him “reckless,” “trigger-happy” and “discredited.”
