I Thought McCain Was Above This
On a call with bloggers Friday, McCain engaged in fear-mongering. Ahmed Yousuf, chief political adviser to the Hamas prime minister Ismail Haniyeh, said “We like Mr. Obama and hope he wins the election.” When Jennifer Rubin asked McCain about this, he said,
“It’s clear who Hamas wants to be the next President of the United States.” He continued, “I will be Hamas’ worst nightmare” and said that he “never expects” to hear a Hamas official say they want him as President.”
And McCain plays the guilt-by-association game with Bill Ayers as well.
On the subject of Bill Ayers, McCain displayed none of the hesitancy he has shown about discussing Reverend Wright. He said he was “a bit surprised” the media had not made more of Obama’s association with “an unrepentant terrorist”
This is the same John McCain who said just a few months ago that “negative campaigns don’t work.”Click here for reuse options!
