"Enemies would not similarly challenge McCain, he said, because he’s already been tried.
“They know I’ve been tested,” he said. “They know I’ve been tested. I’ve been tested many times.” "
Tough Guy posturing, or simple stupidity?
Guess what, John. This argument may work for your most ardent supporters, but it’s more of the same “Trust me, I know how to do this” answers that we keep getting from you that promise success but fail to explain HOW you’re going to achieve that success.
Now I’m not some damned fool who thinks the Iranians are going to 180 their policies because you’ve “been tested”, nor do I think the North Koreans are going to throw their hands up and surrender, nor is Osama bin Laden going to crawl out of his cave and throw himself on your mercy simply because you claim that you’ve “been tested”.
So John, what happens when they do test you? Because, and trust me on this, they will. Are you going to do something reckless and all "maverick"y just to show 'em?
