The McCain camp is raising cain over “losing his bearings” comments made by Senator Barack Obama (D-Ill.).
In an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on Thursday, May 8, 2008, Senator Obama made the “losing his bearings” comment in response to remarks made by Senator John McCain (R-Az.) regarding recent statements made by Hamas political adviser Ahmed Yousef, which favored Obama for president.
According to the New York Times, Ahmed Yousef stated, ”We like Obama and hope that he will win the election.”
Right. My grandmother does too, but this does not make her un-American despite John McCain purporting, “I think it’s very clear who Hamas wants to be the next president of the United States.”

(CNN) — John McCain’s campaign accused Barack Obama of making the presumptive Republican nominee’s age an issue after his Thursday remark that the Arizona senator was “losing his bearings as he pursues this nomination.”
Obama spokesperson, Bill Burton, in an email to reporters, says, ”clearly losing one’s bearings has no relation to age, given this bizarre rant that Mark Salter just sent out.”
Mark Salter is the co-writer of John McCain’s bestselling autobiography “Faith of My Fathers: A Family Memoir” and is also a long time aide to the Arizona senator.

Most Americans might conclude that a member of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) would vote for John McCain over Barack Obama in the 2008 election given the atrocious, historic practices of the KKK; however, from casual reading of any one of the many online KKK forums today, most Americans would be surprised to find that the KKK is not necessarily a friend of John McCain.
Nevertheless, McBush3.com has learned from an anonymous source inside the KKK that many of their members do clearly prefer John McCain over Barak Obama for the next president of the United States despite strong, internal opposition to McCain’s immigration policy.
Does this make Senator John McCain a domestic terroist ally or unworthy of a vote due to an endorsement from the Ku Klux Klan? Of course not. Nor does the endorsement of Obama by Hamas make the honorable United States Senator of Illinois, Barack Obama, a friend, ally or cohort of a foreign terrorist organization.
McGive me a break.

McDissapointed in McCain.
