I'd rather buy lunch for a random stranger on the street.

Both he and the Clinton’s raffling off face time with them? At least this one is for a charity as opposed to paying the already rich Clinton’s debts.

Personally, I would probably pay to be excused from having to meet either of them.

“I’d rather buy lunch for a random stranger on the street.”

Me too, at least that stranger most likely didn’t sell out our national security (to China) for a ride on the Shuttle.

We still pay the price for his action.

what an effing loser.

went from USMC pilot to astronaut to douche bag.. all in one lifetime.

Go back to Ohio Glenn.... nothing like a has been with a full ride from the taxpayers trying to scrape by on a couple of hundred thousand per year.

F'ing democrat. I'd rather burn my money than give it to him and the most of the asshats in DC.

Used to respect Glenn until he sold out to the dim-bulb crats and purchased a ride on the shuttle in payment for his vote. Sorry, Glenn, but in my mind, you’ve got as much morality as Obama - which means you’ve got none whatsoever. Go away.

John Glenn is a good soldier, and that explains much about how liberals got to him and made him one of their crew. If he could be convinced that the liberal-democrat world view is good, noble, and patriotic, he is the type that would go for it and not give it much thought.

The trick is in recruiting and convincing him. If the GOP got to him and did this, he would have been a GOPer.

The types of qualities that make Glen who he is also made him susceptible to the liberal world view, once they got to him. They used his strength against him, making it a weakness.

I don’t agree with the politics he advocates but I cut him quite a bit of slack.

John Glen — another Democrat to have traveled from hero to traitor in a single lifetime...

The winner gets lunch with John Glenn. The losers - dinner and a movie with John Glenn.

Any respect for that I ever had for John Glenn went out the window with his shameless performance during the Cox Committee hearings, when he sold out our nation by doing everything he could to frustrate the investigation into Clinton's quid pro quo of allowing the sale of critical missile technology to the Chinese.

I was in middle school when Glenn went into orbit, and I always thought of him as a great national hero. But when he sold us out just so he could get one last geriatric ride in space, I realized that he was never a patriot -- just a hot-dogger with aspirations of personal glory.

I wouldn't give a peso to the democratic party, but I have a ton of respect for him regarding space flight. To paraphrase Ms. Coulter, he needed to be perfected a bit.

The boys that went up (even today) had/have a huge set of cajones on them. Too bad some of them squandered it away by joining that cesspool fraternity of bottom feeders in DC.

I’ll have lunch with him.

First question:

“How in the hell could you ever be a Democrat”?

I’m related to the guy, yet I would rather have lunch with Big Bird.

I was fortunate enough to have a handshake and short conversation with Alan Shepard in 1974... that was cool, but unfortunately I was too starstruck to really hold an intelligent conversation.

John Glenn is just a low rent Murtha.
