McCain: Isn’t Canada Part of the U.S.?

So Obama drew about 200,000 enthusiastic Germans into the streets of Berlin to hear his speech yesterday. Here’s what McCain had to say to Kelly O’Donnell about it:

“I would rather speak at a rally or a political gathering any place outside of the country after I am president of the United States,” McCain told O’Donnell. “But that’s a judgment that Sen. Obama and the American people will make.”

Seems strange that McCain would rather give political speeches outside of the country AFTER he’s president, since he gave one just last month in Canada. As MSNBC’s Mark Murray notes:

However, on June 20, McCain himself gave a speech in Canada — to the Economic Club of Canada — in which he applauded NAFTA’s successes. An implicit message behind that speech was that Obama had been critical of the trade accord. Also, McCain’s trip to Canada was paid for by the campaign.

While it is true that no one really cares what McCain had to say to the Canadians, he should at least have enough faith in his own message to assume that someone would remember that he spoke there.

Maybe McCain forgot. I mean, it was a little over a month ago.
