McCain Belittled Short-Term Mayors And Governors
During the October 21, 2007 presidential debate in Orlando, John McCain said:
…I have had a strong and a long relationship on national security, I’ve been involved in every national crisis that this nation has faced since Beirut, I understand the issues, I understand and appreciate the enormity of the challenge we face from radical Islamic extremism.
I am prepared. I am prepared. I need no on-the-job training.
I wasn’t a mayor for a short period of time. I wasn’t a governor for a short period of time. For 20-some years, including leading the largest squadron in the United States Navy, I led. I didn’t manage for profit, I led for patriotism.
And, yet, it is Democrats who are being blamed for putting down short-term mayoral and gubernatorial experience.
