McCain raises specter of nuclear war
John McCain's campaign seems to be throwing everything but the kitchen sink at the wall in the waning days of the campaign, hoping something will stick. Now McCain has brought up nuclear war.
John McCain raised the specter of nuclear war as he struggled to overcome rival Barack Obama's widening lead in the polls with just 14 days left in the epic race to the White House.
Warning voters that the United States faces "many challenges here at home, and many enemies abroad in this dangerous world," McCain returned to the attack line that Obama has poor judgment and is not ready to lead the United States.
The next president "won't have time to get used to the office," the Republican said at a rally on Tuesday.
"I sat in the cockpit on the flight deck of the USS Enterprise off of Cuba. I had a target," McCain said, referring to the 1962 Cuban Missile crisis.
