John McCain on Tuesday questioned Bill Clinton’s credentials to discuss the mental health of prisoners of war after the former president told an audience in Aspen that it’s just a matter of time before a former POW snaps and relives the nightmare of his imprisonment.

Former President Clinton knows as he served his Nation in a stellar manner.

How would he know. The closest he has ever been to any conflict is hiding under his desk.

That wouldn't work. Monica was already occupying that 'position'.

And he’s an expert, how? I’ve known and worked with four former Vietnam POWs and I’ve seen them in very stressful situations. Not once did I see one even come close to losing it.

While John McCain was in the N. Vietnamese prison camp, Bill Clinton had successfully dodged the draft and was organizing anti-war protests at Oxford.

A more loathsome son of a bitch I’ve never seen.

It isn’t just POWs who have night terrors. People who saw combat and survive the war intact can still have post tramatic stress disorder.

And yes a serial rapist might understand.

Actually, I kind of wish McCain would “snap” and go off on Obama and Clinton for what they really are.

Looks like Bill Clinton not only got a heart bypass, he got a soul bypass as well.

Assuming there was every one in there to begin with.

What a disgusting piece of sh*t he is.

PTSD is real and can be dangerous. But it’s been a heck of a long time since McCain was a POW and if he’d been suffering from severe PTSD all this time, while having a high profile political career, it would have made plenty of headlines and the GOP establishment would have made sure he didn’t get the nomination. However, if he up and decided to slug Bubba for this smarmy smear comment, I’d attribute it to moral indignation, not PTSD. And I’d applaud!

A reasonable question. What experience is Clinton speaking from?

A phrase often used when McCain was just candidate in the primaries few thought would win was: “temperamentally unsuited to be president.” Republicans seemed to used that phrase more than anyone else. The phrase hasn’t been heard so often since he achieved his 40% victory in the primaries.

I don’t worry about McCain snapping because of the POW experience after 40 years. I do wonder what effects the experience had on him psychologically that might have been present all during those 40 years since.

He has had some notable displays and anger and temper over the years.

And where was Clinton while John McCain was being tortured in a prisoner of war camp?

George Bush attacked Clinton for protesting the Vietnam War while a Rhodes scholar at Oxford in 1969 and for visiting Moscow in early 1970 during a school break.

Clinton will forever be remembered as the stain on the office of the Presidency that wouldn’t go away. The day he was impeached and the dems marched to the WH to stand behind him in a show of support was a harbinger of things to come. Shameless, narcissist, predator.

He remains an icon of the left to this day.

What a piece of ..

It’s my version of George Will’s comment: “Bill Clinton may not be the worst president ever, but he’s the worst person ever to be president.”
