Rodney Glassman on Principles & Values

 


McCain missed key votes when running for President

Glassman challenged McCain's effectiveness at addressing Arizona's big problems, from wide-scale unemployment and foreclosures to a lack of focus on energy independence and investment in education.

He dogged McCain for missing Senate votes while he was running for president and for shifting positions on key policy matters.

The senior senator dismissed the remarks as "biased."

Cooperation instead of partisan battering ram

Glassman picked at McCain for his notoriously short fuse, saying he finds it difficult to believe McCain has the diplomacy for contemporary challenges when he has an image of "our short-tempered U.S. senator being rude to Janet Napolitano just the other day."

Glassman said his own campaign "is about having someone who will work with everyone to find solutions--not just serve as a partisan battering ram trying to accomplish nothing except self-aggrandizement and furthering their political future."

McCain, with few exceptions, ignored Glassman's attempts at eye contact as well as his verbal jabs, even when the Democrat directly challenged him to more debates, saying it was "disrespectful" to voters to limit his appearance to 60 minutes in exchange for a six-year term.
