McCain criticizes Obama for giving foreign speech -- despite having done the same thing last month himself

Remember, last month, when McCain gave the campaign speech in Canada? Most of us remember. McCain doesn't:
In his interview with NBC's Kelly O'Donnell, which will air on NBC's Nightly News tonight, McCain questions whether Obama should have given a speech in Berlin before becoming president.

"I would rather speak at a rally or a political gathering any place outside of the country after I am president of the United States," McCain told O'Donnell. "But that's a judgment that Sen. Obama and the American people will make."

However, on June 20, McCain himself gave a speech in Canada -- to the Economic Club of Canada -- in which he applauded NAFTA's successes. An implicit message behind that speech was that Obama had been critical of the trade accord. Also, McCain's trip to Canada was paid for by the campaign.
Just another small gaffe by the GOP nominee. McCain doesn't have to deal with facts. He can just make things up.
