Moreover on the initial flight into space the idiot decided that he would break protocol and try to drive his ride back into re-entry position. He darned near skipped himself out into the far environs of a cold and dark space. The guy was a hot shot and very arrogant. Give me Alan Shepard any day
Too bad he sold his soul for a ride on the shuttle. No telling how much damage he did to us by refusing to look into Clinton’s Chinese money.
As a fellow Ohion, I used to respect John Glenn. When I was a kid, he was actually one of my heroes. But, any man who would sell his integrity for one last ride on a rocket ship is no man worth respecting or even considering as a hero.
The stench of Clintonian situational ethics will forever linger over the name “John Glenn”.
Thanks for not criticizing MY character and grace for daring to be less than hero-worshipful of Glenn.
I grew up thinking Glenn was a great man, and then I started reading about his politics, disgraceful and supportive of Clinton’s treason, and which have helped give rise to the anti-American criminal intolerant racist anything-goes “liberal” movement of today.
Glenn is as much to blame for the leftist criminals in government today as is anyone who deliberately sabotages America. He just has a better resume.
And he completely derailed the Senate investigation into Chinese Communists funding Democrat campaigns in exchange for one last rocket ride.
He sold every last bit of his American hero status. Now he’s just another Donk traitor.
Looks like many others have rebutted you as well or better than I have.
Still think charisma trumps any and all criticism, even if or especially when it’s about a leftist freak?
I have no use for this political whore. He’s one more embarassment from Ohio (Kookcinich, Voinovich, Metzenbaum, etc). I’ll never forget this ba$tard’s attitude and how he voted when it came to throwing the Clinton pig out of office.
John Glenn is garbage.
What a beautiful love story. Everything else people wrote about is true, but what a beautiful love story.
I am glad to see others remember his infamous support of the Democrat party over American secrets. He is nothing but a traitor who deserves ignomy!
I recall him using a few “parlimentary tricks” to keep certain people from answering questions of a Congressional committee investigating the leakage of senitive secret information to the ChiComs . . .
What he did was disgusting!
But not a bathtub fall.
Yes, indeed, and not just on the battlefield.
I once debated the merits of freemasonry on Free Republic. Several freemason apologists expected me to be impressed with the fact that every astronaut throughout the 1960s was a freemason.
My take? I would have been impressed to find out that say, freemasons made up only 5% of the population, but 60% of astronauts. But 100%? I was supposed to feel better about freemasons because they succeeded in discriminating against non-masons to the unbelievable extent that only their initiates were allowed in the space program? That doesn’t make them heroes; that makes them conspiratorial a$$40!35!!!
Fortunately for my tinfoil-hat collection, I presumed such a claim was simple boastful hyperbole. But it does seem strange that John Glenn’s was such a vile, corrupt, left-wing, moonbatty (Oh, THAT’S where the word comes from? HHOK!) freak as a politician. On the other hand, the freemasons who dominated the USSC for so many decades were radical, anti-democracy villains, to a person.
(The Freemasons of Washington’s time had only three degrees. Those who are now called “Freemasons” now are most commonly members of the Scottish Rite, an organization founded by Freemasons and which does require masonic membership to join.)
A member of the Keating 5 who was loyal to his wife.
The only way I can explain it, is the vast majority of Americans born or raised in the first half of the 20th century, just accepted the mass culture of Rooseveltian Progressivism. Both Roosevelts.
Some beagan to question it,shook it off like Reagan did, and others, like Glenn, couldn’t change when faced with the truth. As to the space ride at 77 incident, well, even Barry Goldwater went soft when he got too old.
OF COURSE he was charming. He's a politician.
I will not let the leftist puke hide from his execrable POLITICAL record.
I will refrain from making a statement about this socialist misguided soul. Ooops!
From hero to zero, as far as I’m concerned.
I never cared for John Glenn the politician, but there is no denying that John Glenn the Astronaut was a true American hero. God bless him and Annie.
He is a political product of his times, he was fairly liberal and big government. I do remember that my father once wrote to him to try and get help for a coworker suffering from black lung and he did take an interest in helping the guy. The old guy was a WW11 veteran like my father and should of qualified for VA assistance he wasn’t getting for some reason that Glenn cleared up. I think that old sick man did not care if the devil himself helped him as long as he could get some help.
