NY Times: …It was all part of a continuing effort by the McCain campaign to seize on the events overseas to appear presidential. He also said he was sending Mr. Lieberman, of Connecticut, and Senator Lindsey Graham, Republican of South Carolina, to Georgia, as both stood beside him at a flag-bedecked news conference here.Amazing isn’t it. While the media repeated the Republican talking points fed to them about the galling Obama presumptive "presidential arrogance," McCain never heard a negative peep from the press. If anything, they said he “appeared presidential.” He even has the pre-presidential power now to send Lieberman and Graham to Georgia. All of this is ok for John McCain to "undermine the power of the president," but Obama apparently doesn’t yet know his “place.” And Sen. Lieberman's grotesque politicization of the conflict is stunning and shameless.
The video provides the “straight talk.”
And he tried to tamp down earlier charges from the Obama camp that he was responding to the Russian crisis with a belligerence that could only make the situation worse.”
