I'd tend to agree with you. McCain seems primarily upset about Merkel being spied upon, not the wholesale vacuuming up of the rest of the world's Internet communications. He's also clearly anti-Snowden/anti-whistleblower.

FYI - this is the entire Q&A on the Der Spiegel site: http://www.spiegel.de/international/world/a-932721.html

He is not upset about Merkel being spied upon. He is upset with her finding out.

Thank goodness he never became President!

Oh yeah he definitely would have been worse then the guy who was elected who did it anyway.......
