McCain Too Old to be President, says Chuck Norris

Posted on 1/23/2008 3:30:00 PM

Chuck Norris thinks that Senator John McCain is too old to become the next president of the United States. The actor, who has been actively backing McCain's rival Mike Huckabee, made the statement while hosting a fundraiser at the former Arkansas governor's Lone wolf ranch.

"I didn't pick John to support, Norris said, because I'm just afraid that the vice president would wind up taking over his job in that four-year presidency." He added, "We need to find someone that can handle it for four years or eight years ... that has the youth and vision and communication skills to make that work." Norris incidentally is four years younger McCain, who will turn 72 next August.

While McCain's supporters did not respond, Huckabee has chosen to keep himself away from Norris' statement. Speaking to reporters he said, "Only John McCain and his hairdresser know for sure", and added, "It is a very stressful position. ... I'm not going to say he's too old. I think he's got a lot of inner strength, good genetic factors by his mom."

The GOP primary, held in South Carolina, was expected to be conducive for Huckabee. In spite of this, he won only a second position. "We obviously wanted to win and we really thought we would win," he asserted. "The fact of Fred Thompson's being in the race took some votes that we would have most likely had." He also pointed out that the delayed snowfall in some areas of the state had an effect on the results. "The snow not only froze the streets of the Greenville-Spartanburg area, the votes kinda stopped once it started snowing," he said. "That was an area we were looking forward to having a significant vote margin." Huckabee said he hoped the fundraiser would initiate a surge in his favor. He said, "Even a contest of delegates isn't going to be over after Florida and probably even after February 5. …So everybody's sort of retooled and said, 'No, this could go on all the way to the convention.'"

Almost 200 people had paid $ 1,000 to see Mike Huckabee and his group, Capitol Offense, perform classic rock tunes.
