McCain vs. AARP

Sen. John McCain, sitting next to Bush at a rally for party loyalists and toadys in Albuquerque, took a few swipes at the AARP.

“Some of our friends, who are opposing this idea, say, `Oh, you don’t have to worry until 2042.’ We wait until 2042 when we stop paying people Social Security?” the Arizona Republican asked rhetorically at the Social Security event here.

“I want to say to our friends in AARP, and they are my friends in AARP, ‘Come to the table with us,'” McCain said. “We not only have an obligation to seniors, but we have an obligation to future generations of Americans as well.”

John, if you were planning on running for president in 2008, forget it.
