Rove: McCain can’t use computer because he was POW
Fox’s Chris Wallace asked Karl Rove to comment on negative campaigning by Barack Obama. Rove spoke on one advertisement that is critical of McCain for not knowing how to use a computer. Rove blamed McCain’s computer illiteracy on his status as a POW.
Rove said, “But they then say he doesn’t even know how to use — doesn’t send email. Well, this is because his war injuries keep him from being able to use a keyboard. He can’t type. It’s like saying he can’t do jumping jacks. There’s a reason he can’t raise his arms above his head. There’s a reason he doesn’t have the nimbleness in his fingers.”
A Huffington Post report claims McCain is learning to use a computer and is capable of using electronic devices.
