An apparently hyper-caffeinated John McCain gave a lovably corny, joke-laden endorsement of Mitt Romney in New Hampshire, much to chagrin of the Republican hopeful. “We forgot to congratulate him on his landslide victory last night,” McCain snarked as Romney stood uncomfortably.
“He can run, but he can’t hide, now, my friends,” McCain riffed, then added:
“Our message, our message to President Barack Obama, you can run, but you can’t hide from your record of making this country bankrupt from destroying our national security, and to making this nation one that we have to restore with Mitt Romney as President of the United States of America. All the media reports — all of the media reports says that the president is going to attack Congress, and you know, maybe that is not a bad idea, because our approval rating is 9%. You get down that low, you are down to paid staffers and blood relatives!”
