Georgian President, Mikheil Saakashvili, tells McCain it's time to turn words into deeds:
Yesterday, I heard Sen. McCain say, ‘We are all Georgians now,’” Saakashvili said on CNN’s American Morning. “Well, very nice, you know, very cheering for us to hear that, but OK, it’s time to pass from this. From words to deeds.”
When I heard McCain had said that yesterday, something popped into my mind. McCain keeps accusing Obama of acting like he is "already President". Well this comment from McCain really sounds like he is playing President also.
I also wish CNN would report all the facts in their stories:
McCain’s foreign policy adviser Randy Scheunemann told reporters on the campaign plane Tuesday that McCain’s remark “obviously meant a lot to Saakashvili personally, but more importantly the message it conveyed to the Georgian people in this really, time of unprecedented national emergency.” Scheunemann said McCain and Saakashvili are friends who have speaking daily throughout the crisis.
Wouldn't it be nice to include little tidbits like; Scheunemann was a lobbyist for Georgia, or Scheunemann was advising McCain while receiving money from Georgia. You would think the "most trusted name in politics" would adhere to the principals of full disclosure of such information - wouldn't ya?
