McCain:”I Will Be Hamas’s Worst Nightmare”

By on 4.25.08 | 11:08AM

Some more from the McCain call.

On the North Carolina Jeremiah Wright/Obama ad:

"I don't believe it is an appropriate message for the Republican Party."

"I just think this ad is offensive to some, and I want it taken down."

"It's not the tenor of the campaign we want to run."

On the Hamas endorsement of Obama:

Notes that Obama also was endorsed by Daniel Ortega, somebody whose support McCain is happy to have. He also noted Obama's willingness to meet with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

McCain, meanwhile, he vowed:

"I will be Hamas's worst nightmare."

It doesn't surprise him that he didn't get their endorsement.

On Maliki's offensive in Basra:

"There's been a pleasant turn of events," McCain said, in that Maliki showed initiative in taking on militants in the city. "In the last several days, Iraqi military, with limited American support, took control of Basra."

He said the Iraqi government was united by the action, and he was "generally pleased with the outcome."
