LAKEVILLE, Minnesota (CNN) John McCain heard boos at a town hall meeting Friday night after the Republican presidential nominee called for the crowd to be more respectful towards rival Barack Obama.
We would like you to remain a true American hero, an elderly military veteran told him. We want you to fight.
I will fight, but we will be respectful, McCain said. I admire Senator Obama and his accomplishments and I will respect him.
When the crowd began to boo, McCain told them No, no. I want everyone to be respectful.

Typical comment from 'Poison Lite.'
Keep being respectful to the African-African as he and the cabinet he selected while crawling through the DC sewer system continue to reap havoc on this nation!
Got the link to original thread? Like to see that again.
But I have to tell you, I have to tell you, he is a decent person, and a person that you do not have to be scared as President of the United States.
Oh, really?? Look at what he has DELIBERATELY DONE TO AMERICA in only a few months, Juan. He is FDR, Carter, and Marx rolled into one and there is no mystery about it.
This particular article wasn’t posted before, but I’ll see if I can dig through the old pings and find a related thread.
Obama hates capitalism as the Marxist makes clear in this recent quote:
we need not choose between a chaotic and unforgiving capitalism and an oppressive government-run economy
He wants to use the fraud of “climate change” as just one of the mechanisms to destroy capitalism.
Obama wants to destroy the best health care system in the world in exchange for the idea that everyone has an insurance card.
WE SHOULD BE VERY AFRAID OF THIS MARXIST!!!
Juan McCain. Unfortunately quite representative of most of the republicans in DC. Spineless, brainless, clueless and happy to sell out his country for some favorable press.
Yes it was. I remember my blood pressure spiked to danger level. I posted comment to that thread.
That's exactly what people were told when Castro was just taking over Cuba. I met a lot of people who knew Fidel during and immediately after the Cuban revolution, and they said this is what they told everyone before he turned into a bloodthirsty monster.
This is the moment when I knew it was over. In fact, when I saw the video of it on the news, I turned to my wife and said “That’s it. It’s over. He just gave away the election”.
In the long run, I really think the GOP will be better off that McCain did not get elected, just as the election of Clinton helped the GOP (but then, we turned around and elected another Bush, who destroyed the party just as his old man did).
“This is the moment when I knew it was over. In fact, when I saw the video of it on the news, I turned to my wife and said Thats it. Its over. He just gave away the election.
Ditto. It was exactly the moment where he seemed to be gaining some momentum, and then he just goes and blows it all by making a comment like that. Makes me suspect it was all a set-up to begin with, and from Day 1 THE ONE was destined to be our Dear Leader.
If McCain hadnt been so concerned with his war hero and honorable man persona and attacked him re; Odinga, violation of the Logan Act, Wright, Ayers, Acorn, his lack of proof that he is qualified for POTUS, we wouldnt have a Marxist/Muslim sitting in the White House and destroying American at break neck speed!
He didn’t have the stones to fight back- even when the sob gave him the finger on national TV!
He set the fire, accident or not doesn't matter, as the ship was almost lost he stood in sick bay shaking hands...watch it on discovery, an amazing look into the man.
I found it.
Article from WSJ
To many of us, it never occurred that McCain could win or that he wanted to win.
Decent people don't conspire to take our freedom away.
In these trying times, we need to go to Senator McCain for wisdom, because surely in his 70+ years he has some, and if he’s not available, we can go to Meghan, for surely she has some wisdom passed down from her daddy. (that was sarcasm for the sarcastically impaired)
After John Mccain made this ridiculous statement, I realized my donations money to the GOP had been pissed away.
Yep, his comments p*ssed me off big time. I thought “Let me be the judge of that”! And, I too, believe it was a setup.
It was very hard to tell if McLame was in the race for himself or for FUBO.
Look for McCain to support Obama in getting an amnesty, which will destroy this country with the stroke of a pen and a cap and trade system, which will wreck our economy. We need to get McCain defeated in 2010.
Does anybody give a smelly Obama about what KcKennedy says any more?
With all due respect for the man’s past service to the country, McCain — and the Republican national “leadership” — are why this FLAMING MARXIST sits in the White House.
A stronger, more conservative GOP candidate at the top of the ticket could have beaten this USURPER handily.
About the only thing McCain did that made any sense was to pick Palin for VP but most thinking Pubbies saw that as a small bone to conservatives. And when the ravening wolves of the liberal media tried to tear her apart, McCain and his people did little or nothing, turning Sarah into a sacrificial lamb.
And now we have MIKE STEELE running the show, setting the stage for two terms for Obama.
MEMO TO GOP: CRANIAL-ANAL INVERSIONS CAN BE REVERSED! SEEK A CURE!!
I admire Senator Obama and his accomplishments and I will respect him.
...that was Juan’s “end of the road” line. It was hard enough to swallow that McLame was the Rep nominee, much less to hear the guy put BO and “accomplishment” in the same sentence. He thinks we’re all idiots with our arms outstretched like mummies, waiting for his next order. Little runt.
I had the exact same reaction.
“He is FDR, Carter, and Marx rolled into one and there is no mystery about it”.
...true. BO has “accomplished” more toward the destruction of America and freedom than any of these 3 EVER could’ve imagined. He makes FDR and Carter look like conservatives.
A decent person would put the questions of eligibility to bed by addressing them openly.
It’s hard to respect a person when you think he’s violated the constitution by usurping the highest office in the land, even if he did win a popular vote.
Can i be scared now? (s)
And this was the moment I turned to my wife and said “We just won”.
What the heck happened? McCain followed with a lame convention speech, the media were given marching orders to destroy Palin, and McCain went into neutral the rest of the election.
You do know what a zombie is, don’t you?
Here, let Bob Hope explain it...
If only we had nominated our candidate...
You can thank open and winner-take-all primaries for that. McCain became the presumptive nominee of the party with just 31% of the primary vote. And he was the only top tier candidate of either party who could not win his home state primary with 50% or more of the vote. The MSM and the GOP establishment [read RINOs] helped nominate the oldest man ever to get the first time nomination of his party and package him as “change” despite the fact that he had been in Washnington for more than 30 years.
Although I will not split hairs on that statement, I suggest that students of history re-read closely the waning days of the Weimer Republic in Germany, circa 1933; and examine closely the subtleties of Hitler's rise to power — and the incremental successes of National Socialism; endorsed and supported by an exhausted German populace.
In the period following the 1933 installation of Hitler as Chencellor, the internal dissent was essentially fragmented — but dealt with by the political leadership with increasing brutality and effectiveness.
And, please remember that the timespan between the advent of National Socialism in 1933 Germany to Chamberlain’s “Munich” capitulation was well short of two U.S. Presidential terms.
The rest is history — with the utter destruction of the Fatherland and the deaths of 10 million humans.
Not to worry. Nothing like that could ever happen to the United States of America.
Right !!! And, I just happen to have a bridge to sell you.
Rant over. /dk/coro
McCain said. I admire Senator Obama and his accomplishments and I will respect him.
Yep...he stated this just before he lost another Presidential Election .
John knows just what he was doing. IMHO
After Palin’s speech at the convention, it—was—over!
And then came the orchestrated financial crisis and it was over again...over for McCain.
His actions when the crisis first hit, if he weren’t so pitiful, it would have been comical. I have to wonder what a wealthy 72 year old man could even want at that stage in his life, that would be worth selling his country out for.
McCain is a poster boy for term limits. He has lost it.
He lost whatever he had in the Hanoi Hilton.
That particular sentence is the point at which Yosemite Sam lost the election.
How decent of him.
John is senile!
