2008 Thinking in the Age of Bush
posted by May 19 at 9:15 AMon
The McCain camp is trying to portray the likely Democratic candidate Barack Obama as soft on terrorism, as “Hamas’s favourite” and as a man who would not defend America’s security.
The Hamas tag followed a comment by a Hamas spokesman Ahmed Yousef who told WABC Radio: “We like Mr Obama. We hope he will [win] the election and I do believe he is like John Kennedy, great man with great principle.”
It is strange to think that a Hamas which respects an American president is much more dangerous to the ordinary American than a Hamas that hates an American president. This strange kind of thinking will end only with the end of the present age and continue only if the age is continued. McCain is that continuation.
