Mr. “Do-as-I-say-but-not-as-I-do” Obama directly questions McCain’s patriotism:
“Just ask the machinists in Pennsylvania who build Harley-Davidsons,” Obama said of McCain’s record. “Because John McCain didn’t just oppose the requirement that the government buy American-made motorcycles, he called Buy American provisions ‘disgraceful.’ Just ask the workers across this country who have seen their jobs outsourced. The very companies that shipped their jobs overseas have been rewarded with billions of dollars in tax breaks that John McCain supports and plans to continue.
“So, when American workers hear John McCain talking about putting ‘Country First,'” Obama said, “it’s fair to ask — which country?“
Even Jake Tapper gets it:
Um … isn’t that pretty much the dictionary definition of questioning someone’s patriotism?
Um, yes, it is. Wow – how desperate and dumb is that?
And, of course, it makes questioning Obama’s patriotism fair game, and that’s a battle he’s likely to lose (it is also a diversion from the battle of “issues” which favor Democrats slightly to the battle of “values” which always favors Republicans).
I wonder how many days of campaign time this little bruhaha will consume?
