McCain, again, is in his absolute comfort zone. Hits Dems hard. Hits Hillary hard. But he lies in claiming he was the only one who supported the surge. Thompson and Giuliani did, too… and Romney more or less did so. But in terms of the effectiveness of his answer, at least an A-minus.
Rudy is asked about Palestinians and terrorists. His answer seems well thought out. He’s in command of himself tonight. Giuliani hits back at McCain’s claim to have been the only one who supported the surge. Rudy is right. He cites the exact time and place where he announced his support. McCain’s response looks weak. A small point to Rudy on effectiveness — a BIG demerit for McCain for making a claim and then trying to pretend that he made a different claim when he was called on his lie on the first claim.
A side note on that: IT’s high time somebody called out McCain for his “I’m the only one who is ever right and always right” self-aggrandizement. Good for Rudy.
Somebody needs to get Ron Paul off the stage. He’s a nut. Sorry, but he just is an absolute nut.
