McCain: I'm sending Sly Stallone to take care of Chuck Norris

Huck has Chuck and now Mac has Sly.
Huck has Chuck and now Mac has Sly.

(CNN) - Earlier this week, martial arts star Chuck Norris questioned John McCain's ability to serve as president, because of the Arizona senator's age - at 72, he'd be the oldest first-term president in American history.

At Thursday night's debate, McCain had a response for the action star, who has endorsed Republican rival Mike Huckabee:

"Now that Sylvestor Stallone has endorsed me, I'm sending him over to take care of Chuck Norris right away."

    Chuck should check his watch and birth certificate since he is only 4 years younger than McCain.

    They looked like a bunch of the typical GOP JUNK, don't they get it, we are SICK of all the BUSH tactics and WAR and crap, They do not have to worry about Hillary beating them , they all are BEATING THEMSELVES, Keep running the republican mouth and all that it implies, and your screwed! BUT I have a good idea, after the dust settles you all can meet Bush & Connie and the Gang and have a powwow and and talk about old times..

    Karen – There were 5 people on that stage tonight. Search for "Ron Paul" on youtube.

    Voted against Iraq War
    Voted against the PATRIOT act
    Never voted for a tax increase
    Never voted for an unbalanced budget

    Sponsored a bill to make social security income tax exempt
    Sponsored a bill to make tips tax exempt
    Sponsored a bill to make college tuition and expenses tax deductible

    Does anybody remember McCain last year in the following:

    Illegal Aliens do the jobs Americans won't do. McCain said he would pay $50 an hour to anyone who would come to his ranch and work the fields the way the Illegal Aliens do.

    Remember "JOBS AMERICANS WON'T DO?"

    HE'S NOT TALKING ABOUT ILLEGALS BUT HE STILL WANTS TO DO IT. IF HE IS ELECTED, HE WILL WORK WITH KENNEDY AND THE REST OF THE CROWD TO MAKE IT HAPPEN. REMEMBER LINDSEY GRAHAM ALSO SUPPORTED THE AMNESTY BILL, FOLKS.

    CAN SOMEBODY PLEASE PUT McCAIN ON THE SPOT AND MAKE HIM TAKE A STAND ON ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION? THE AMERICAN PEOPLE DESERVE TO KNOW JUST WHERE THAT MAN STANDS.

    I THOUGHT MITT ROMNEY WAS GOING TO DO IT BUT HE IS NOT TAKING THE FIGHT TO McCAIN. AND FRED THOMPSON IS ONLY INTERESTED IN THUMPING HUCKABEE BECAUSE McCAIN IS HIS FRIEND.

  7. Not a Fan of Stallone

    Sylvester Stallone can't even speak properly. He sounds like he is DUMB. He's also too old to be playing ROCKY and I think he endorsed McCain at this particular time to give publicity to his movie.

    Well I really thought i was a bona-fide democrat but when Wall Street and President Bush himself said that it would be a good thing to use our income tax return to stimulate the economy, well dang somebody really has come up with a
    wonderful start to keeping us all out of a recession, applause,,,, applause. I wonder if they all are going to join us in this???

    There is too much of a game show going on right now among democrats that will not, and has not already insured the next president will indeed be a democrat. Don't worry about McCain. Just another contestant who will be forced off of this stage without "parting" gifts. The one factor most others have overlooked against Hillary's chances, not many people want to ever see Bill Clinton in office again. But the way things appear to be shaping up, it's all in her favor.

  11. Economy Romney

    Economy Romney is all about Jobs Jobs Jobs and he has the right balance and he has the Olympic experience of bringing the world together.

    McCain bringing out Sly Stone the Rambo shows where McCains head is at its war war war.

    I don't think Bill Schneider really wants to slow down to republican speed.

  13. Warming up to Mitt

    McCain is too extreme.

    Remember the war hero Bob Dole, Purple Heart WWII vet back in 1996?
    The Dems and the media loved Dole in congress just like the dems like McCain in congress. However being liked by Kennedy and Feingold in congress and a war vet will not win against the Clintons or Obama/Oprah.

    The Florida primary is Republican-only. That's a roadblock for McCain. McCain won in NH and SC because of liberal independents.

    Romney is winning the Republican base. If anyone undecided will listen with an open mind to Mitt speak, it will only take a few minutes to see that he is brilliant. Romney is a moderate conservative across the board. He is smart on the economy, opposes amnesty, is pro-family, and is intelligent enough to handle the war and not quickly leave after we have won.

    I certainly wish more people would start paying attention to Ron Paul. The rest of these clowns need to go.

    I think Rambo and McCain are a perfect pairing. Both great heroes in their time, both fought overseas, both are waaaaaay past their prime. I wonder if Hulk Hogan has endorsed anyone yet.

    Why McCain, because you are a democrat? Let's be honest the people on this board for McCain are either dems or lobbyist that want a washington insider.

    Careful, warming up, Romney was the savior of the Olympics with a LOT of federal money involved. Last time I checked, there was no federal money to play with unless you were a Republican who supported war (or a "fiscally conservative" Republican who supported giving Chinese money to their wealthy friends in the form of tax cuts.)

    John,
    You might have tried to get someone who could speak English and had some sort of credibility.

    To dilmont. Ok the one of many emasculated Air Head liberal Clinton drones managed to get a cheap shot in. This one is for you dilmont, if you knew anything at all, you would know that John Mc Cain has a fantastic sense of humor. Yes Clinton and Obama are funny also, because they are both JOKES
