Celtic Diva's Blue Oasis: "What's wrong with John McCain?"

Monday, August 04, 2008

"What's wrong with John McCain?"

McCain stumbles on how he's "fought for civil rights all of his life"...or how Obama actually played the "race card."

Eventually he snaps back to his talking points, lying about supporting the MLK Holiday in Arizona.

Per John Aravosis at Americablog:
Joe posted a video yesterday from Jed, showing McCain trying to answer a question from an audience member, and the video is really disturbing. From three different angles you just watch McCain get sort of totally confused. It's like one minute he's there and the next he's not. McCain's campaign would like nothing better than to demonize anyone who dares mention McCain's age (he's going to be 72 this month). But the fact remains that there's a real question as to why the John McCain we knew in 2000 was vibrant and on the ball, and why John McCain circa 2008 seems prone to repeated gaffs and bouts of confusion. And let's not forgot, McCain got tons of media attention in 2000 as well - and he wasn't at all as "off" as he is today, so it's not just a question of "oh, candidates make gaffs when they're on cam 24/7" - McCain didn't have these problems in 2000.

Here are just a few videos out of the vast number I could choose from showing McCain 1) Contradict himself from the past, 2) Repeat the same gaffes, and 3) Say things that he later denies.

"Perfect voting record with Veterans..." I guess a "D" with IAVA is "perfect."

The "Surge" started in 2006?

Big "Al Qaeda" gaffe

Countdown: "Build it, tear it down, whatever..."

More Al Qaeda trouble

"dispirited...spirited" "Liberal Republican"

"President Putin of Germany"

Like I said, these are just a few. If you want an extensive number of examples, go to the YouTube "bravenewfilms" collection or "The Jed Report."
