Senator John McCain at a Memorial Day event at the Veterans Museum & Memorial Center in San Diego with Mitt Romney is interrupted by a heckler mid-way through his speech. The guy is taken out, McCain calls him a jerk. (video)

Not necessarily. San Diego County has quite a few surfer dudes and limousine liberals, etc.
People who disagree with McCain should certainly respect his military service and beyond that should respect the occasion of Memorial Day. McCain was right, the guy was a jerk.
I’d like to punch McManiac in the nose!
I respect what McCain did before his political career started. After it started though, well... what did he as the 2008 R nominee get us?
Id like to punch McManiac in the nose!”
Obama wins the office of POTUS over a war hero. How fked up is that? Yes McCain is as lib as they get, but still...This Obama putz whose only qualifications is dialing a phone wins over McCain. It was all sensationalism wasn’t it? And Bush didn’t help. Freakin’ jerk lets gas get to 5 bucks a gallon in his last year. Real smart a-hole.
McCain ---> RINO Romney ---> RINONow tell me the difference.
they ain’t Obamay...
The Douchbag made a point to remove his coat and show his shirt. Anyone know what it said?
There are a notable number of conservative surfers in Southern California.
McCain: “I served my country and was a p.o.w. so people could be free to speak their minds. Unless it’s some jerk while I’m making a speech.”
I thought he was wearing a POW/MIA shirt.
Just a guess but maybe that guy was giving McCain grief over his handling of the issue.
At first I thought it might be someone protesting on behalf of MIAs, the T-shirt is similar to this,
but on closer look and listen ("USS Liberty") the T-shirt appears to be this...
That’s not a jerk. That’s a jerkette.
Thanks, Could be either of those. Maybe more video will surface. I think C=Span was the only “media” covering the event?
His daughter?!? /sarc
Wow! That’s a great video!
But there’s no supporting text at the blog. So here’s the link to the video without the side trip -
>> I respect what McCain did before his political career started. <<
As somebody has properly said, McCain has been:
1. an outstanding and true-blue patriot;
2. a lousy, incompetent Republican senator; and
3. an absolutely awful POTUS candidate.
Today of all days, we should honor his patriotism. His less admirable qualities can be discussed ad infinitum tomorrow and on subsequent days.
‘Obama wins the office of POTUS over a war hero. How fked up is that? Yes McCain is as lib as they get, but still...This Obama putz whose only qualifications is dialing a phone wins over McCain. It was all sensationalism wasnt it?”
McCain lost the 2008 election when he “suspended” his campaign and flew to Washington purportedly to intervene personally in the financial crisis. The ensuing meetings demonstrated McCain had no authority or ability to affect the financial meltdown (there was a sitting president and McCain was not in a leadership position in the Senate charged with financial oversight). This headline grabbing, ego driven, ploy resulted in McCain looking like a buffoon and gave the mainstream press the opportunity to portray Obama as a cool collected leader. McCain went from leading in the polls, prior to his Washington trip, to losing the election.
Not to mention the fact McCain pulled his punches throughout the 2008 election campaign when it came to attacking Obama. By failing to define Obama as the inexperienced radical leftist he was, McCain allowed Obama to define himself as a young vibrant intellectual who would save America from the financial ruin and endless wars of the Bush administration.
John McCain lost the 2008 election due to his out of control ego and stupidity.
It looked like a POW/MIA shirt to me.
I wonder whether the heckler was upbraiding McCain for teaming up with Hanoi John Kerry to cover up our government's betrayal of our captured fighting men in Viet Nam?
Something similar happened in 1992 with Clinton beating George H. W. Bush.
It's ironic that Obama spoke of our Vietnam veterans being denigraded (by his own party), and one of his supporters does just that to McCain on Memorial Day. The guy is worse than a jerk.
Can you please give me the particulars on how a US president sets the price of gasoline?
McLame lowered himself to the hecklers level when he called him a jerk. Funny how McLame has no problem offending John Q. Public but took pains not to offend the Kenyan usurper.
Like putting graffiti on a beautiful work of art.
Was curious what responses I’d get from posting it at a RP site...
No one questioned if it really was a RP supporter.
Oh.....hohkay....LOL. I wonder how many RP supporters think the "birthers" are crazy??????
