McCain's time as a legislator certainly makes me doubt he was mistreated in the POW camp and wonder whether or not he stabbed his fellow POWs in the back. If there was something in it for him I guarantee you he did whatever he needed to do to benefit. What a disgrace this man is.

The GOP has backed this disgraceful jackass every time he’s run and that's one reason I have no use for the Republicrat Party. There just isn't any difference between him and his democrat opponents. He would have made an absolutely disastrous president, but the GOP threw their full support behind him which they have done for so many RINO’s over the past 30 years.

It’s long past time for all conservatives to abandon this worthless party and form a viable alternative. It's boiled down to do we want poison or poison lite.

"we want poison or poison lite."

More like "poison max or poison extreme".

Does McCain really have to “cross the aisle” to stand with Obama?

I have always believed that McCain ran to ensure Obama’s victory.

Why is it surprising that McCain likes Obama? He endorsed Obama *during* his campaign.

What a disgrace this man is.

A man doesn't change his true nature and McCain has certainly been consistent in his behavior over the years.

I trust McCain just as much as I trust Obama.

Whe either one speaks I know that the truth is the exact opposite of what they say.

McCain gave us all ample warning. I did not vote for either major party in that election.

"Crossing the aisle" is BS. This is war. The Republican Party is toast.

They will not fight this war, so we must find some people who can and will.

His father was the Commander-in-Chief, Pacific (CINCPAC) who was ABOVE General Westmoreland, the US commander in Southeast Asia (including Vietnam). Do you really think the Communist North Vietnamese mistreated such a valuable bargaining chip?

When one notes how woefully incompetent their campaigns were, one wonders if both McCain and Romney didn't "take a dive," as they say in boxing.

More like now that the elections are over, McCain does not have to pretend his is a Conservative. Obviously the fix was in, white commie or black commie.

Heck... he threw the election. I am now absolutely convinced of it. He sabotaged Sarah and suspended his campaign and heck we all know the dozens of things that he did and said that sunk any chance that he may have had. He ensured defeat by actively working against victory.

Having lived and gone to school in Arizona I sometimes wonder how/why this guy got elected the second time. I realize the environment and politics have changed since but I can’t be thankful for people of Arizona giving this guy a pulpit for any of his purposes today.

For Obama, the senator has become always been a rare Republican backer of important elements on the president's second term agenda,

There. fixed it.

Why is it he cannot lift his arms more than a few inches? I have no doubt that he was tortured... but I also have no doubt that they broke him. I think that they scrambled his small brain and that it has caused the mental aberrations that we all see... his temper included.

The source, GOPUSA, couches this in positive terms.

Is McCain's sucking up to Barack "fundamentally change America" Obama something that the GOP officially endorses?

But there was one subject that was off-limits, a subject the Arizona senator almost never brings up and has never been open about — his long-time opposition to releasing documents and information about American prisoners of war in Vietnam and the missing in action who have still not been accounted for. Since McCain himself, a downed Navy pilot, was a prisoner in Hanoi for 5 1/2 years, his staunch resistance to laying open the POW/MIA records has baffled colleagues and others who have followed his career. Critics say his anti-disclosure campaign, in close cooperation with the Pentagon and the intelligence community, has been successful. Literally thousands of documents that would otherwise have been declassified long ago have been legislated into secrecy.

Welcome to Free Republic.

You joined today to post that insult?

You are conflating John McCain’s service record with his career after he retired from the Navy.

I am a Vietnam vet, and I am not offended by his service.

What did you do during the war?
