So, in response to the conflict in Georgia, John McCain presumptuously usurped the Presidency and is sending two campaign surrogates–Sen. Lindsay Graham and Sen. Joe Lieberman–to interfere with the diplomatic negotiations going on there.
But who did the Georgian President ask to come and help resolve the situation?
Democratic Senator–and Obama supporter–Joe Biden:
Biden, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations committee, said he had been asked to go to Georgia by President Mikheil Saakashvili for talks over the conflict with Russia.
“I am going to Georgia this weekend to get the facts first-hand and to show my support for Georgia’s people and its democratically-elected government,” said Biden in a statement.
“I look forward to reporting to my colleagues in the Senate and on the Foreign Relations Committee, as well as the administration, about what I learn.”
Biden said that he would also meet Prime Minister Lado Gurgenidze and US ambassador to Georgia John Tefft.
Looks like John McCain just got upstaged on Georgia.
You can add that to the list of reasons why Georgia is a losing issue for John McCain.
