When I heard Jimmy Carter say McCain was milking his POW past for political gain, it totally made me change and want to support McCain. Palin was just icing on the cake.
In McCain’s book, “Faith of My Fathers”, he describes the horrors of being a POW in Hanoi. He praises many of his fellow prisoners for their courage, despite being tortured over a period of years. He mentions (only) two American prisoners who actively collaborated with the North Vietnamese, betraying their country, and receiving special treatment in return.
Somehow, I think Jimmy Carter would have been one of the collaborators. So would Al Gore, John Kerry, Ted Kennedy, Biden, Reid, Obama, and the rest of the Democrat “leaders”, if they had been prisoners in Hanoi. They would have told their captors anything, disgracing themselves and the United States.
