McCain looks older than his age and now is acting older than his age. Sorry I am not comfortable with quick tempered and senile McCain with his finger on the nuclear trigger.

HAHA geez...Obama calls Harper the president of Canada, his wife mispronounces Nevada, and McCain calls Putin the president of Germany. Wow. I’m glad our presidential candidates are so well informed about the world /s

Can you believe these people could potentially be controlling our foreing policy??

Mrs. Obama’s pronunciation of Nevada is not a political concern in my book.

Even Bush II made similar mistakes during his Presidential campaign. Was he old?

Oh come on. McCain's record is all we need to criticize him. Everyone knows he meant the "President Putin of Russia".

Attacking him for a slip of the tongue is nothing but petty.

This is getting zero notice in the MSM.

If this were Romney, it would dominate the news cycle.

I know I’m going to get clobbered for saying this but I’m going to say it anyway. I’m no fan of McCain surely — but this petty stuff is beneath us. I would guess that the schedule these guys have is enough to boggle the mind. It can’t be easy. And we sit here picking apart every little thing they say and do. We’re against the Democrats, the Republicans, and the Independents? We sit here on our computers ready to jump on anything and anyone who makes a stupid mistake with words — just like the Dems didn’t miss one stutter or mispronounciation made by our President, paying more attention to the way he said something than the point of what he said. Aren’t there enough *real* issues for us to discuss? (Okay, I’ll start hiding now :)

Actually, the president of Germany is Horst Koehler (Christian Democrats), but as the post is largely ceremonial (much like Queen Elizabeth of the UK or King Juan Carlos of Spain), the real power lies with chancellor Angela Merkel.

Let’s keep him out of the Oval Office and away from our military.

Look, McCain's a big, flipping RINO, but this is absolutely nothing.

Everyone reading this has made countless such errors.

It happens

That said....GO MITT!

Well...I beg to differ. McCain is running for PRESIDENT.
A sharp and crystal clear mind is an asset. McCain looks
older than his age, very poor physical shape. He needs to lose weight and get in shape if he wants to withstand the rigors of the job.

If I have a choice of his being more of a conservative Republican or joining the YMCA fitness program, I’ll take the former. There has never been ANY president (or human being, for that matter) who hasn’t stumbled over a name, a word, etc., when tired. And as I said, I am not a fan of his — but regardless, I don’t think you’re going to find someone who can withstand pressure 24/7 and be of a “crystal clear” mind every moment. It’s not possible. I do believe you are being a wee bit petty. Perhaps you should run?

Watch him in the debate on Thursday. He gets mental lapses during which he falls back on phrases he struggles to remember from his campaign stump speech. Usually when this happens he begins with “my friends” and then launches into canned fragments of his speech. He brags that he has a mother who is 95 and is still mentally sharp and physically active. My question is how old was his father when he died and what did he die from? His father contributed to McCain’s genetic makeup too. You’re right, McCain is too old. He’d be 72 when he would be sworn into office. That’s way too old.

Yes, McCain will be older than Reagan when sworn in. Ronnie had definite signs of Alzeimers in his 2nd term, and yet he was in better physical shape than pudgy McCain.

I think Perot had it right when he called McCain the classic opportunist, seeking attention and prominence where ever he can find it.

Oh my! McCain made a misstep! Lets see if the MSM talks about it for days like they did whenever President Bush made a misstep. Bet it isn’t mentioned! They want McCain over Romney as our nominee now in order to insure a Hillary win!

I’m with most of the posters here that this is a slip of the tongue, but you bring up a valid point. If there are repeated lapses of memory and inability to finish coherent thoughts, there may be a real problem. OTOH, he could still post on FR. A lot of us have that problem.
