Arizona Sen. John McCain insists his vote against a GOP plan to repeal ObamaCare is not payback for Donald Trump demeaning the former POWs heroism during the Vietnam War when the president remarked, I like people who werent captured.
If I took offense at everybody who has said something about me, or disparaged me or something like that life is too short. Youve got to move on, McCain, a Navy pilot who spent more than five years in a North Vietnamese prison, told CBSs 60 Minutes in an interviewed that aired Sunday.
And on an issue of this importance to the nation, for me to worry about a personal relationship, then Im not doing my job, the senator added. see also McCain deals potential death blow to GOP health bill McCain deals potential death blow to GOP health bill
McCain, the Republican presidential nominee in 2008, said the president has never apologized to him for making the caustic comments in July 2015, a gesture that would help repair the ongoing feud between the two.
But McCain said they are different people, with a different upbringing and different life experiences.
He is in the business of making money and he has been successful both in television as well as Miss America and others, McCain said in the interview that aired on Sunday. I was raised in a military family. I was raised in the concept and belief that duty, honor, country is the is the lodestar for the behavior that we have to exhibit every single day.
I dont know what hes going to do tomorrow
or say tomorrow, he said of Trump. He changes his statements almost on a daily basis. So for me to spend my time trying to analyze what he says, I dont know.

Dear John McCain,
Aren’t you dead YET? What’s takin’ so long?
Whatever Ace. So you are going to make sure millions suffer with Obamcare. GFY.
Thanks to McDork, the term “senator” is analagous to “pond scum”.
His grave will be covered by gallons of urine provided by we who look forward to showing him our “respect”.
Did McCain ever say he was sorry for the accident on the USS Forrestal?
So if he had, you would have voted as your constituents wanted? I am so glad Trump insulted you, so that people can see how small your character really is.
Maybe because he still prefers heros who didnt get themselves shot down and didn’t earn a nickname like “Songbird” for collaboration with the enemy
The first time I saw the movie Shooter, the character played by Ned Beatty screamed McCain to me and it has been reinforced every time I see it again, even more so now.
Sure, he personally visited the families of CDR Fred White and his deck crew that died beside McCains plane to comfort them about the bravery and last moments of their loved ones...
McCain is an advocate for good relations with Vietnam but never received an apology for the torture the Communists inflicted on him as a POW. Perhaps Trump would enjoy good relations with McCain if he had tortured him instead of insulting him.
Have you apologized for your lies about repealing Obamacare, Johnnie?
Didn’t think so.
I have a bottle of Elijah Craig waiting to be opened the day this SOB dies.
No offense to the Senator, but he’s been tagged as John Mc$hitstain on some internet blogs. Kinda catchy.
I was listening to Breitbart Sunday night last night when a caller, responding to comments about McLame said, “Bad pilot does not equal good hero.”
If McCain did not have an Admiral for a father he would be in prison still for treason as to what he did to the Forestall and what he did in Hanoi.
Correct. You let a personal relationship effect your vote of importance to the nation. You are not doing your job.
Glad you see so clearly.
Nor have WE seen or heard YOUR apology to AMERICA. Please TRY to remember back to the election cycle the FIRST and only time you ran against BO’B.
YOU assured, in your ‘fatherly’ tone of ‘wisdom’, a frightened , sane and stable, matured woman that there was nothing to fear from a President O’Bama. YOU LIED YOU LIED YOU LIED.
To hear YOUR APOLOGY we would first need to wait till HELL FREEZES OVER.
He drank and goofed your way to the 2nd lowest grades of ANY cadet at the Naval Academy, assclown. If his father/grandpa were not Admirals he would have been EXPELLED. 134 souls on the USS Forrestal wish he had been.
