In 2008 Obama Said McCain Is "Losing His Bearings"

Given all the ginned up outrage over Karl Rove’s questions about Hillary’s concussion, here is a timely reminder of what Obama said about the elderly John McCain, during the 2008 campaign, a mere six years ago.

Via the archives of the Politico:

Obama: McCain ‘offensive,’ ‘losing his bearings’

Obama: McCain ‘offensive,’ ‘losing his bearings’

On CNN today, Obama was asked about McCain’s making an issue of a Hamas official’s supportive words for Obama.

Obama responded with the same sort of high-road message that seems to have worked fairly well against the gas tax holiday: The suggestion, he said, was "offensive," and furthermore a mark that McCain is "losing his bearings" as he pursues the presidency.

Note that claiming an elderly man is ‘losing his bearing’ is called a "high road message" by the Politico. And yet they are so outraged at Karl Rove’s fairly sensible questions.

"My policy toward Hamas is no different than his," said Obama, who called McCain’s comment a "smear."

Yes, it was crazy to think Obama ever would be soft on terrorists.

      Karl Rove asserts that Hillary suffered brain damage during a 2012 fall. Totally absurd. No one can be sure of the exact moment.
