FACT CHECK: McCain was confused about Spain tonight, again

OBAMA: He even said the other day that he would not meet potentially with the prime minister of Spain because he wasn’t sure whether they were aligned with us. I mean, Spain. Spain is a NATO ally. If we can’t meet with our friends, I don’t know how we are going to lead the world in terms of dealing with critical issues like terrorism.

MCCAIN: I am not going to set the White House visitors schedule before I’m President of the United States. I do not even have a seal yet.

Uh, wrong. McCain just this past April said he would welcome the President of Spain (they call their prime minister “president”) visiting Washington, DC should McCain become president. So it’s absurd, and somewhat demented, for McCain to now say that today it’s premature to invite him when McCain already invited him five months ago. So is McCain saying he just uninvited the President of Spain? Does McCain even know what he’s saying anymore? (Note that McCain also thought Spain was in Latin America.)
