DID MCCAIN MIX UP SPANISH PRIME MINISTER WITH SOUTH AMERICAN DICTATOR?

Rate this Entry

It's relevant because he made this possible gaffe in an interview with a Spanish-language radio station in Miami and the interview is getting extensive airplay in the Latino community. It's also apparently causing a rift in US-Spain relations. I think McCain was mixed up and this may not have been the biggest gaffe in the world. But the McCain is trying to say he meant exactly what he said and this is making matters worse.

    Ha-ha ! Thank you for posting it!
    This answer deserves to be on Jay Leno's "Jay Walking" . First he didn't know who they are asking about and started talking about Mexico. After the interviewer clarified it is the prime minister of Spain, McCain said he doesn't know and he has to review what the relationships with Spain are. What that means is that he is not familiar with the relationships of US with EU.

    I guess he wants to be the leader of the free world and does not even know that Spain is a member of Nato and and Ally of the US, maybe the age is starting to show for McCain.

    He said - "leaders in the hemisphere" - and I don't think he meant "Northern". So, I have two conclusions - either McCain is deaf (not surprising for his age), or he has no clue where Spain is (forget about the PM, that's too complicated for him, anyway). I bet he thinks Putin is the president of Russia. Sad...

    He does mention Latin America in one of his responses, so I assume that the man (as many Americans, no doubt) has confused Spain with anything south of the US border. Unlike most Americans,though, this man is campaigning to lead and represent the US. What does the US have against intelligent leaders?
