John "McSame" McCain - running like it's 2004.
(CNN) — John McCain said Friday that "it’s clear who Hamas wants to be the next president of the United States" — the second time in as many weeks that his campaign has referenced positive remarks by Ahmed Yousef, a member of that group, about Barack Obama.
On Friday, the presumptive Republican nominee was asked about the Hamas leader’s comments on a campaign conference call with bloggers.
"...I think it's very clear who Hamas wants to be the next president of the United States," said McCain. "So apparently has [Sandanista leader] Danny Ortega and several others. I think that people should understand that I will be Hamas's worst nightmare...If Senator Obama is favored by Hamas I think people can make judgments accordingly."
A week ago, the Arizona senator’s campaign sent supporters a fundraising e-mail that said Hamas approved of Obama’s foreign policy vision, and is hoping for his victory this fall.
We saw the same tactic used by Bush-Cheney '04 against John Kerry, when the right-wing noise machine claimed that al-Qaeda wanted Kerry to win the White House.
McCain claimed last week that he wanted to run a campaign "that is worthy of the people we seek to serve." It's apparent from McCain's cheap fear-mongering and distortions that he doesn't think much of the people he seeks to serve at all.
