John McCain removes reference to self as "the one" from after creating new attack ad of the same name against Obama

Tuesday, August 05, 2008

Right now on they have a new ad called "The One" featured that mocks Obama as a type of messiah:

I decided to see if there are any references on McCain's site to himself as "the one", and lo and behold there's one page, but it's been deleted. Google has the cache though:

John McCain's Experience Sets Him Apart In The Presidential Field

John McCain: "The difference between me and Mayor Giuliani and Governor Romney [is that] I fought against the failed Rumsfeld-Casey strategy and advocated for the policy that is succeeding. I'm the one that did that. I'm the only one. And I said it in the summer of 2003, and I said it and I predicted that that strategy would fail because it was a terribly flawed strategy and I advocated the one that is succeeding now. That's based [on my] military experience from service for many years on the Armed Services Committee as well as in the military." (WKXL Concord, 9/4/07)
Here's a screenshot of the page as well:

Personally I don't see what the big deal is with calling yourself 'the one that' did something or other, but it looks like they've decided it would be a good idea to remove it from the site.
