A new 'low' in ads: "McCain is 72. He's had cancer 4 times"
YouTube ^ | 9/24/08

Posted on 09/24/2008 3:56:17 PM PDT by SilvieWaldorfMD

I JUST CAME ACROSS THIS PATHETIC AND UNPLEASANT AD ON YOUTUBE. LOOK:

Urge PBS' Jim Lehrer to ask McCain about his health records during Friday's debate:

http://www.pbs.org/newshour/letters.html

This debate will deal with foreign policy, and McCain's health issues constitute a national security issue, especially when you consider how his secrecy about medical records echoes the Bush administration's legacy of lies. Will McCain's health limit his capacity to make tough decisions regarding diplomacy and military action? We don't know, because McCain is keeping his medical records a tightly held secret, made available to just a handful of journalists for three hours under close supervision.

Send a quick e-mail to Jim Lehrer, moderator of Friday's debate, with the subject line: "Ask McCain to Disclose His Health Records in Full." Then, donate to Brave New PAC today so we can get this ad on the air. We have the right to have an open discussion about this grave issue, and now we have the chance to bring transparency and accountability to politics.

What people need to ask is how detrimental Obama’s continued chain-smoking is to HIS health.

It is Skin Cancer, my dad has had at least a half a dozen removed. This is something a lot of Vietnam vets have to deal with because of terrible sunburns.

and didn’t President Reagan have precancerous polyps removed following a colonoscopy? What’s the big deal? McCain’s health seems to be thriving.

Besides, Benjamin Franklin was 82 when the Continental Congress met to sign the Decl of Independence.

I’d bet McCain’s living brain cells against Obama’s any day. He’d win every time.

excellentn point. Isn’t lung cancer a tougher cancer than skin stuff? Must be — I’ve lost a sister, a brother and a first cousin.

"McCain's health issues constitute a national security issue.."

He's 72 years old and his MAMA is still running around for crying out loud!

The guy's indestructible!

Still waiting for Clinton to release his health records. Don’t think for a minute Hillary would have release hers and Bam Bam hasn’t released his either. But that’s OK, what are facts to the moonbat drooling mouth breathers?

I pray that God will put a hedge around John McCain and Sarah Palin and their families and that all the negative energy and hateful energy that’s trying to reach them will run into this hedge and be deflected back to where it came from.

Some of this stuff is pure evil. IMHO

I wasn't sure if I could trust those doctors talking in the ad, but they each had stethoscopes over their shoulders, so I knew I could trust them.

Push this to Hannity and O'Reilly. They should make mincemeat of this crap.

These people are insane.

Will Obama release his medical records; to prove his cocaine use hasn't left permanent damage?

Yes, perhaps YoBama should release his medical records. Wonder if he’s possibly hiding having AIDS from using dirty needles from his self-described days as a user of hard drugs?

I hope they keep it up... its the elderly who vote... how about Obama keeps attacking him and by extension them and counts their votes goodbye, especially in places like Florida... I dont care what the polls say... people my age (20’s) simply aren’t going to turn out... just like they didn’t turn out in ‘04 even though the media kept saying they would

and most sensible people can see McCain seems fine and energetic... and if his mom is any indication has at least another 20 year ahead of him

At least he hasn’t had a number of heart attacks and died like Dick Cheny did, exactly as the Left predicted.

OK, just in case, that was sarcasm.

Plus his dad died in his forties and his mother in her fifties. Osama has crap for genes. Mccain will probably outlive him by 20 years.

Dr. Michael D. Fratkin at 9 seconds into the clip opens his mouth. It looks like he looks like he lost a tooth in a domestic (the same sex kind) dispute. It looks like the gay mafia is hard at work.

wtf? By that definition, my mother is a 3-time cancer survivor. She has recurring melanoma. A scoop every 10 years, that’s it. She would never call herself a cancer survivor and insult the ones that have been through chemo, truly fought for their lives, etc.

Early 70s is the new late fifties. I have no doubt McCain will be quite alert & sharp through 2012.

I’m far more worried about Obama’s chainsmoking and drug abuse.
