McCain adds Spain to Axis of Evil


Recommended Posts

In an interview with a journalist in Florida, McCain seemed confused when, after responding to some questions about Chavez and Castro, he was asked about Spanish PM Zapatero. McCain talked as if Zapatero were some left-wing Latin American leader that didn't necessarily deserve to sit at the table with the U.S., and then started to go off how Obama would be foolish to meet with such leaders without preconditions.

So rather than clarify the question, he jeopardizes U.S. relations with Spain. If that weren't enough, rather than admit the error, McCain spokesman Randy Scheunemann is now ready to continue to treat Spain, the U.S. ally in Afghanistan and (once) Iraq, as though it were some wingnut dictatorship.

"McCain foreign policy adviser Randy Sheunemann said McCain's answer was intentional. 'The questioner asked several times about Senator McCain's willingness to meet Zapatero (and id'd him in the question so there is no doubt Senator McCain knew exactly to whom the question referred). Senator McCain refused to commit to a White House meeting with President Zapatero in this interview"

What's with conservatives that they have such trouble admitting when they make a mistake?

Kind of like when Obama got confused and referred to his "muslim" faith, and the 57 states he had visited. Here's a newsflash, there will be more slip-ups by all before the election.

There's nothing wrong with making a mistake. Jeopardizing relations with another country rather than admitting the mistake, however, is a character flaw one does not seek in a president.

Slipping and admitting it is one thing. Slipping and making it worse by adding to it rather that just say "oops" is something different. It's not the mistakes, it's how their authors deal with it.

McCain did this; Obama did that! Please! Let' get real. McCain has proven himself to be inept and grossly misinformed. No question whenever another of McCain's regular screw ups is reported, the anti-Obama crowd will counter.

The fact is, however, that apart from the Konservative Kool-Aid drinkers, it is generally accepted that McCain has deep competency, memory, and ethical deficiencies.

Generally accepted? Find out on Nov. 4. Why is it liberals generally conceive of themselves as being in the majority on the majority of issues in the majority of times? And when they aren't it is obviously due to voter fraud.

Both men clearly misspoke. I don't think anyone believes Obama thinks there are 57 states (he clearly meant 47). I am a little bit concerned how McCain reacted to it, but still he misspoke. Unless these thing rise to the Dan Qualye level (where he was not only misspeaking but revealing clear ignorance) then it should be a non-story,
