McCain on Spain

A Spain reporter: Senator, finally, let’s talk about Spain. If you’re elected president, would you invite President Zapatero to meet with you in the White House?
McCain: Honestly, I have to analyze our relationships, situations, and priorities, but I can assure you that I will establish closer relationships with our friends, and I will stand up to those who want to harm the United States.
A Spain reporter: Okay, but I’m talking about Europe – the president of Spain, would you meet with him?
McCain: I will meet with any leader who has the same principles and philosophy as us in terms of human rights, democracy, and freedom and I will stand up to those who do not.

Ouch. McCain either doesn’t know who Zapatero is or he doesn’t know that Spain is one of the key allies in fighting against terrorism. Age is catching up to him.
