McCain says Bush's Numbers Hurt GOP

So why do you support Bush's war policies, Mr.McCain:
Republican presidential candidate John McCain said Thursday he believes President Bush's low approval ratings are hurting the GOP yet won't affect the party's 2008 nominee.

"I don't think there's any doubt that when the president's polling numbers are low that it harms the Republican Party in general, but I think that when it comes election time that the overwhelming majority of Americans will choose their candidate on the basis of that individual candidate's qualifications, vision and record," McCain said in an interview with The Associated Press.

Just a minute, isn't the economy slowing down? As for terrorists attacks, Spain and Britain would take issue with that stat. As for not being hit again, there was an 8 year gap between the first and 2nd WTC attacks:
McCain, a four-term Arizona senator, said that despite what he called Bush's mismanagement of the war, "there's no doubt that, in my view, the president's not given credit for a healthy economy" or that there hasn't been another terrorist attack on the United States since Sept. 11, 2001.
