The Myth of McCain
Posted on January 27th, 2007 by jgilliam -

Sidney Blumenthal: “McCain’s political colleagues, however, know another side of the action hero - a volatile man with a hair-trigger temper, who shouted at Senator Ted Kennedy on the Senate floor to ’shut up’, and called fellow Republican senators ’shithead … fucking jerk … asshole’. A few months ago, McCain suddenly rushed up to a friend of mine, a prominent Washington lawyer, at a social event, and threatened to beat him up because he represented a client McCain happened to dislike. Then, just as suddenly, profusely and tearfully, he apologised.” Read more from Blumenthal

    Great. Just what we need - another escapee from the asylum.

    I think it's about time that presidential candidates be required to pass a mental status test. And, that WE should be entitled to the results!

    Gee, Dwight Eisenhower was a pretty good president with a healthy respect for the Constitution, and I recall he was some sort of general or something. Why, he even gave a speech warning against the military-industrial complex.

    Sen. John McCain's college and career military background disqualifies him to be Commander In Chief. We can allow graduates of Annapolis, West Point, Colorado Springs, VMI, Texas A&M;, the Citadel, New London, Sands Point etc. to run the armed forces as four stars but firewall them from ascending any higher up the chain of command because their brainwashing rids their minds of deferance to the Bill of Rights. Look at how a former first leiutenant (O2) in the Texas Air National Guard so fervently respects our civil liberties in his hunt for Osama bin Ladin.
    It is amazing how any career military person can claim to be so anti-socialist as John McCain when the armed forces are the epitomy of of socialism in America. It is as hypocritical as Dubya allowing the rumor to persist that he was AWOL on October 16 1972 when he complied with a top secret presidential order to shoot down the unarmed chartered aircraft of U.S. House Majority Leader Hale T. Boggs (Democrat-New Orleans LA) because the rumor distances Dubya from a lethal U.S. Air Force interceptor needed to execute this quadruple homicide. There is a statutue of limitation for being AWOL but none for murder.
    Oh well, at least he did not protest the Vietnam war as did his 2004 Democrat opponent so we know that Dubya is determined to keep us safe from any enemies.

    Leave McCain alone. He can't win in 2008.
    So, let the Republicans elect him as their candidate.
    This will give the Democrats a lot of ammo and insure a win for the Democrats.
    Limbaugh and other Republicans don't like him and don't want him to run. This should tell you something.
    Let the Republicans defeat themselves. Don't help them. Pile up your ammo and hold it back until after the convention no matter who the Republicans nominate.
    Don't point out their faults and don't alert them ahead of time.

    McCain if a confessed war criminal for the bombing of Vietnemese civilians indiscriminately. He violated the UCMJ, Uniform Code of Military Justice. His father Admiral McCain who was complicit in NOT STANDING UP TO ISRAEL IN 1967 WHEN ISRAEL BOMBED THE USS LIBERTY. McCains are cowards, who appeal to the latent homosexuality of many TV reporters[?] such as Russert, Mathews, Beck, O'reilly, Hannity and who knows how many others have similiar homoeroticism for McCain? Very bizzare and puzzling.John McCain wouldn't even defend his wife and familty from the vicious attacks on them by Bush in South Carolina in 2000.

    I find it hard to believe that no one has questioned McGain's long term prisoner of war situation. How can we really know what happened to him and how stable he really is. He was a POW for 7+ years and that is got to affect even the toughest person.
    Do we really know what he went through or what kinds of brainwashing he experienced. I like him as a Conservative Senator, but as a person who has the nuclear football within his reach, I don't think so.

    This is but another load of "BS" otherwise how could a born and breed white bread Yankee from CT become Governer of Texas and create a Texas Accent to run for the President. How many peole really know that Kind George is a Yankee? So what do we really know about Senator McCain. We should recognize him as a survivor as a POW, but not elect him President.
