McCain lesson in deflection

with 3 comments

If asked a tough question…

#1.  Bring up that you’re a former POW and go over the harsh condition in which you were kept.

#2. And then say it’s really not about X (whatever X may be) but it’s about the American people.

God forbid we get a thoughtful response form this guy.

  1. Well, at least he knows how many houses he owns now… I agree that he’s not the guy that I would choose as a choice for a Republican president, and the Democratic convention isn’t making me like Barack any more than normal. (Talk about a staged speech from his wife!) However, these are our choices right now at this time in history. Now I personally think that McCain did decently in this snippet you got from You Tube (once you get past the “I’m a POW and it’s not about houses bit..).

  2. Yeah, he did fine here. The truth is, he’s right, it’s really not about the houses. The “how many houses” ad is a distraction to score political points (which Obama used to be against). Now, it turns out McCain’s an incredibly boring interview on Leno, but he’s running for president. What can you do?

    And if conventions are about anything, they’re about staged speeches. They’re almost as boring as McCain on Leno.

  3. You’re right, Kyle, political conventions are about staging speeches, but I just felt that hers was BORING.
