On Blogger Call, McCain Pushes-Back on Fund Column

I just got off a conference call with John McCain. 

Jim Geraghty was the first to ask him about John Fund's column today, in which Fund writes that McCain "indicated he might draw the line on a Samuel Alito, because 'he wore his conservatism on his sleeve'."

Regarding Fund's column, McCain said:

“I don’t recall a conversation that I would have said that sort of thing ... I just think that it’s important to say what my record was on Alito – my advocacy – my hard work to try to get him confimed ... I think the White House would be the first to tell you that John McCain would be out there slugging for them.”

He also added:  "… literally, every town hall meeting I’ve said we’re going to have judges like Roberst and Alito."  (This rings true for me, as I'm sure I've heard him say this at least a dozen times).

My concern with this is that it all depends on what Fund meant when he said McCain "indicated" ...

McCain also took a few shots at Mitt Romney, saying Romney created “… the 3rd worst economy of any state in America" and that Romney gave Massachusetts a “… 245 million debt because of his government mandated healthcare plan.”

On a much lighter note, I asked him why Pat Buchanan recently said on MSNBC that they used to be friends.  McCain responded:

"I’ve always liked Pat Buchanan…we’ve and some differences over time.    I hope that we can maintain – or regain – a cordial relationship.  One of the things I really need to do if … or when … I get the nomination is to unite the Republican Party."
