Schneider: Another cheap shot?

CNN

Watch: Sen. John McCain says he doesn't need any 'on the job training' to be president.

(CNN) – McCain almost certainly misspoke when he said he wouldn't speak with Spain...I am not sure that's a fair thing for Obama to call him on.

    How is it not fair to quote what the Sen had said?

    McCain probably would not meet with the head of state from Spain, after all they dont have Oil. That is all he cares about.

    This was not a misstatement by McCain. John McCain’s foreign policy adviser Randy Scheunemann defended McCain's inexplicable and illogical answer in response to a question about whether he would agree to meet with the Spanish Prime Minister José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero.

    The McCain campaign has been dealing cheap shots all summer and now Obama is taking heat for waiting until he gets John on the national stage to deal them back??? I think all is fair in politics...including this stomping Obama is delivering.

    Can John McCain talk about the future or only keep telling stories about places he's visited years and years and years..... ago.

    Too bad you haven't called McCain's cheap shots. It is amazing that everything McCain says is correct. He has been wrong on every foreign policy issue like going to Iraq. Iraq is the wrong war which has not captured bin laden and those responsible for 911. I don't agree that he is a forgein policy expert. His experience we don't need.
