Abrams: McCain: “I really didn’t Love America, Until I was deprived of Her Company”

Developing on “ Verdict with Dan Abrams” tonight, Abrams and a panel are discussing (arguing) about some information about a remark that McCain has made several times:

“I really didn’t love America until I was deprived of Her company.”

The one quoted in the headline above has been repeated by McCain in various versions.

More below the fold:

Dan Abrams’ point in bringing this up, of course, is how   the comment made by Michelle Obama:

“For the first time in my adult life I am really proud of my country”

was taken out of context by Cindy McCain and various right wingers to attack Mrs. Obama.  

Abrams went on to say that McCain’s comment, which if taken in context, is understandable, and further stated that Mrs. Obama’s comment should also be kept in context.  He, as well as the two of the (non-wingnut) commentators agreed that there are far more important issues to discuss in the campaign.  Of course, the right wingnut commentators still refused to hold McCain to the same standards that they use to judge Michelle Obama.  They continue to refuse to let facts get in the way of their opinion.

This is a short essay, basically a reporting of something that we’ll all be hearing about for the next few days, I’m sure.

    But lately he’s been doing a better job than most.  Still don’t love him, or even like him, but, well, he’s better than he was.  He still annoys the hell out of me though.

    Thanks for this serendipity.

  2. First of all, thank you for this essay!

    The worst “swift boating” is yet to come — it will be relentless!

    We ALL need to be prepared!

    Until I’m deprived of his company.
