John McCain Is The Worst Surrogate Of All Time
John McCain has twice—TWICE—wandered away from the Mitt Romney Surrogate Tour, both times with regard to Super PACs—he doesn’t like ’em, they’re buoying Mitt Romney’s campaign. Now, when asked if McCain passed over Romney as a VP candidate in 2008 because of what he saw in the tax returns Romney now won’t release, the Maverick had this to say:
Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) defended Mitt Romney from Democratic speculation that he passed on him as a 2008 running mate after reviewing his tax returns, saying Sarah Palin was simply the better choice at the time.
McCain called the tax claims “outrageous” and “disgraceful” in an interview with Politico Tuesday. He said he chose Palin “because we thought that Sarah Palin was the better candidate.”
Gotcha. So it’s not that Romney has some awful smoking gun in his taxes. It’s that he’s a worse candidate than this person. Sold!
