"Senator McCain's life experiences are epic, they are legendary," Pawlenty said in response to a question at the National Press Club. "They are a life story. Not a life oratory but a life story," Pawlenty added, in an apparent reference to Obama's much-discussed public speaking skills.
"That stands in contrast to Senator Obama," Pawlenty said, turning his attention to the presumptive Democratic nominee. "It is simply a matter of fact that less than four years ago he was a state legislator."
"It's not even a close call in my book as to who you want in sitting in the Oval Office as President of the United States, leader of the free world, commander-in-chief."
So, did these guys not see the primary where these sorts of attacks demeaning Obama's oratory were fairly ineffective for Hillary Clinton?
