McCain is starting to speak out against the vicious anti-Obama attacks. At a recent town hall event, McCain acknowledged the “energy” people have been showing at rallies, and how glad he is that people are excited. But, he says, “I respect Sen. Obama and his accomplishments.” People booed at the mention of his name. McCain, visibly angry, stopped them: “I want EVERYONE to be respectful, and lets make sure we are.”
Later someone said: “I’m scared to bring up my child in a world where Barack Obama is president.”
McCain replied, “Well, I don’t want him to be president, either. I wouldn’t be running if I did. But,” and he paused for emphasis, “you don’t have to be scared to have him be President of the United States.” A round of boos.
