McCain Would Refuse To Meet With Leader Of NATO Ally Spain
[W]as McCain purposely trying to diss the Spanish leader? Questions about whether McCain forgot which country Zapatero leads, got confused about Spain's geographic relationship to Latin America, or confused Zapatero with the Zapatista rebels from Mexico have exploded on blogs since reports of the interview first surfaced.
McCain foreign policy adviser Randy Sheunemann said McCain's answer was intentional. "The questioner asked several times about Senator McCain's willingness to meet Zapatero (and id'd him in the question so there is no doubt Senator McCain knew exactly to whom the question referred). Senator McCain refused to commit to a White House meeting with President Zapatero in this interview," he said in an e-mail.
(Emphasis supplied.) Let me get this straight, McCain would risk war with Russia for the sake of an unhinged leader of Georgia, but he would not even meet with the leader of a longstanding US ally and member of NATO? This is grossly incompetent and irresponsible. This is more than a gaffe. This is a scandal. John McCain is unfit to be President.
