Missed in a lot of the McCain/Scheunmann/Zapatero gaffe uproar is this little gem that Andrew Sullivan catches.
Asked to explain McCain’s apparent shift in tone and position since April, Scheunemann gave almost no ground.
“In this week’s interview, Senator McCain did not rule in or rule out a White House meeting with President Zapatero, a NATO ally,” he said in an e-mail. “If elected, he will meet with a wide range of allies in a wide variety of venues but is not going to spell out scheduling and meeting location specifics in advance. He also is not going to make reckless promises to meet America’s adversaries. It’s called keeping your options open, unlike Senator Obama, who has publicly committed to meeting some of the world’s worst dictators unconditionally in his first year in office.”
I thought Zapatero was the prime minister, not president. Spain has a monarchy. But this is the McCain campaign. They have no clue about foreign policy, except the permanent search for new and more enemies.
Emphasis mine. Keep ’em coming guys! Lovin’ it!
