McCain knew that the Senate resolution certifying his eligibility was not worth the trumpeting it was given He was born outside the USA controlled Panama Canal Zone. He also understood that if he did win the election Obama and his enablers would/could claim him ineligible in spite of the resolution and Obama would be in by default. Palin was a ploy to make the election look on the up and up. I believe that to this day McCain appreciates that Obama won the election.

I know that he was injured in the crash but I also believe that they worked on him. At least one fellow prisoner said that they did. I cannot remember the man's name but I do believe he was a CMH Award Recipient and he was there with mccain. He had some pretty sobering statements about old john and they were not all all sympathetic or flattering. He was always reckless and somewhat of a renegade. I have always thought that he should have to pay for the four planes that he destroyed. I still am not certain about the Forrestal... the official record points to many failures leading up to that accidental firing of a missile. It is funny how mccain has always been and still is a walking disaster. Everything that he touches seems to become a disaster.

McCain: "The Devil and I trust each other."

God: "Good luck with that, Smokey."

Conservative Americans: "Thank you, John McQuisling, for validating what many of us have suspected all along -- that you were a globalist Commie-enabling patsy in 2008 who never intended to win. Just like Romney in 2012."

This is legacy building pure and simple.

McCain is a blue dog Democrat at best but he knows there is simply no place for him in the current Democrat party.

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.

CHECK. CHECK. And, CHECK.

McVichy is a complete and utter fraud and collaborator.

This is a no-brainer. The administration finally has enough “goods” on McCain to make him toe the line. They’ve threatened him with the same level of exposure that was threatened on Roberts.

They must have had enough “goods” on him during his lousy campaign and about every moment since then, in that case.

They have nothing new on him. He’s always been a weasel and a not-very-crypto Dem, and I don’t know why the people of his state vote for him.

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

What aisle? The gop and ‘rats are just two wings of the same uniparty. Slightly different in rhetoric, no different in reality.

I will work with any president if there are ways I can better serve Arizona and the country," McCain said.

I think that if he were to slit his throat he would serve America and Arizona very well.

I would be thrilled to lend him a rusty hacksaw.

DIE already you POS.

IS there no cancer that can rid us of this meddlesome pr!ck?

Juan has been infected by the chronic mental disease known as liberalism that rots out the brain’s ability to think. He is now a mentally-deficient rat zombie just like the rest of em. AZ needs to send this stupid brainless jackass packing.

When McCain crosses the isle we do so want to see Mabel Albertson sitting aside ready to trip him; following him, ready to trip him again. Much like the scene in What’s Up Doc. To see John fall flat on his face would be a pic to treasure. Juan and only Juan should be committed before he hurts someone.

McCain pretends to be conservative right before his re-election, and the low info Arizona Republicans buy into it every damn time. They’re more naive than Charlie Brown.

LLS, please leave the Forrestal out of your criticism of McCain. It doesn’t help. He is guilty of a lot of things, but there is no question at all of his culpability in the Forrestal accident. He was just in the wrong place there.

He broke both of his arms and one of his legs during ejection with subsequent lousy care, and that accounts for his range of motion limitations.

Read EXACTLY what I said about the Forrestal.

“I still am not certain about the Forrestal... the official record points to many failures leading up to that accidental firing of a missile.”

I do not see any statement there that implies guilt or infers fault. I personally am not certain about exactly what happened. That should not upset you.

Lots of POWs hate his guts. Including Ross Perot’s campaign manager. The obama campaign has been blackmailing him over this for a long time. That’s why in his acceptance speech he said “They broke me.”

Look, The man’s military record is well documented and attested too by those that served in the same jail. It is not assailable, especially by one that has yet to be baptized.So unless you have some VERY compelling evidence you make yourself look stupid AND PISS ME RIGHT OFF when you denigrate ones military service.

That being said , McCain’s politics is completely out of step with conservatives and stretches the term RINO to the breaking point. He is more accurately described ,now , as a conservative leaning Democrat.

McCain couldn't have cause Forrestal. His plane was spotted {meaning placed on the flighdeck by the Air Dept} at the wrong angle to have cause that. Look up the flightdeck spotting chart for the fire and you'll see why.

LLS, I did read your post. You meant it to convey exactly what it did, suspicion of culpability in the Forrestal fire.

You should educate yourself about the Forrestal fire if you aren’t certain, because slyly implying that McCain did have a level of culpability for it does does not do any good to your case our our case that he is a slime-dwelling, bottom-feeding weasel who does not have the best interests of our country at heart.

Saying things that infer (as you clearly did) and outright state (as other posters did) simply makes it easier for McCain supporters and liberals to dismiss our concerns. Which they readily do.

Just saying.

Please show me where I said anything about mccain being guilty:

“the official record points to many failures leading up to that ACCIDENTAL firing of a missile.”

I still do not know exactly what happened as the official report lists many things including a grounding tether that was left off that might have caused a static discharge, along with other safety features that were turned off to increase the speed at which planes could take off. My point was that mccain is a walking disaster... whether his fault or not... disaster follows this guy like a black cloud.

Pleasse see my post 98. I never stated he was guilty and I referenced an “ACCIDENTAL” firing of the missile. My point was mccain is a disaster... even in things where he was innocent... almost everything the man has been involved with turns out to be a disaster... unless you think mccain hasn’t been a disaster in almost everything that he has done. Even his child is a walking disaster.

He said “notion”. McCain must really like Obama a whole lot to use “notion”, Barry’s dismissive word.

John McCain likes Barack Obama, who publicly praises Ho Chi Minh. Figure that one out.

The both of them are lost.
