Tough questions for McCain from the unlikliest of sources – The View

That’s right. The View, the most pathetic, vacuous show on television.

From the Huffington Post

BEHAR: Are you going to push for a draft?

MCCAIN: No, I don’t think so, Joy. I think our all-volunteer force works. I think we have the best-trained, best-equipped, bravest —

BEHAR: But if we have enough, why do they have to keep going back and back?

MCCAIN: We have to expand the military and provide more inducements for them to serve. There are a certain number joining out of patriotism, thank God. And then there are others that turn 18 or 19 or 20 or 21, and they look at their options. And one of the things we ought to do is provide them with significant educational benefits in return for serving.

Then later,

BEHAR: Anyway, here is my question because I’ve been reading all about you…and I don’t like George Bush as a president. I think he was one of the worst presidents we have ever had. Please don’t applaud. Let me just get through this question. I want to know, since you are for his tax cuts for the wealthy, that you are for staying in Iraq, that you are against Roe v. Wade, therefore Supreme Court justices may overturn women’s rights and, that in fact, you hired Karl Rove as one of your campaign advisors, which is like hiring Mike Tyson to be your bodyguard. How are you different from George Bush?

MCCAIN: First of all, we have not hired Karl Rove.

BEHAR: But he’s hanging.

MCCAIN: I’ve spoken to him once in the last year or so, first of all. Second of all, I respect President Bush and we have a friendly relationship. There are issues that we’ve disagreed on, the conduct of the war for four years, spending, climate change. There’s a list of issues that we have open and honest disagreements, keeping within the overall philosophy of less government is better government, lower taxes, strong national defense, etc., etc.

McCain subverted the questions as usual, but god bless Joy Behar for not asking him hard hitting questions some of her air headed colleagues on The View are known for, like how many pairs of shoes he owns or what he dreams about.
