High Schoolers Think John McCain Is To Old

John McCain took questions from high schoolers today at Concord High School in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. The students where given a question and answer time, and one student asked McCain, “If elected, you’d be older than Ronald Reagan, making you the oldest president. Do you ever worry that like you might die in office or get Alzheimer’s or some other disease that might affect your judgment?” This didn’t faze McCain, and he joked about him already having a bit of Alzheimer’s, but said he could out campaign any of his rivals. Then McCain told the student, “Thanks for the question, you little jerk … you’re drafted.” McCain was also asked about what he would do for the rights of “LGBT’s.” The question confused McCain, not knowing what “LGBT” was. It was explained that it meant Lesbians, Gays, Bi-sexual, and transgenders. With that McCain said he supported the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy, and was against same sex marriages. “I believe that the sanctity of marriage between man and woman is unique and should be preserved, and I understand the controversy that swirls around that issue, and that debate needs to be continued to be held, but I support that position.” The student didn’t like McCain’s answer and said, “You want to take away someone’s rights because you believe it’s wrong?” “I don’t put that interpretation on my position, but I understand yours,” McCain responded. Wanting to get the last word the student said, “I came here looking to see a good leader. I don’t.” McCain seemed to enjoy the back and forth, and told the students, “I thank you. That’s what America is all about, and I appreciate your views.”
