Oh when, oh when will the hypocrisy ever end with this guy? Straight from the grumpy old guy himself, his words, in text and on video in the primary debate, McCain absolutely slammed Mitt Romney and that Rudy guy for being one term governors and mayors, declaring that they are not able to do the job due to the lack of their experience. Now all of a sudden, Palin is qualified to fill in for the top spot because she’s a one term mayor and governor. The Obama campaign ought to run this Youtube clip as a political ad, showing the hypocrisy.
When does being a governor or mayor for a short period of time not disqualify your credentials on national security? When you are John McCain and your task is to defend your vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.When does being a governor or mayor for a short period of time ABSOLUTELY disqualify your credentials on national security? When you are John McCain and your task is to defeat primary opponents Mitt Romney and Rudy Giuliani.Back in October 2007, when McCains candidacy still appeared dead and buried, the Senator berated the two Republican front runners for lacking the necessary political experience to handle commander in chief responsibilities.”I have had a strong and a long relationship on national security, Ive 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,” the Senator declared. “I am prepared. I am prepared. I need no on-the-job training. I wasnt a mayor for a short period of time. I wasnt a governor for a short period of time.”
