  • The McCain dirty laundry thread

    Hard to figure out where to start here... the Keating scandal, the lobbyist thing, leaving his crippled first wife and getting married one month after divorcing her - which of course means that he is an adulterer, and all the GOP supporters who whined about Slicks' improprieties are hypocrites for supporting this guy.

    But now there is VetVoice, which is a group of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans. It is for Active Duty, Reserve, and National Guard members, as well as for veterans, their families, and their supporters.

    Here is their website: http://www.vetvoice.com/showDiary.do?diaryId=639

    They have an ad out against John McCain.... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EsMumUEPMCY

    Today, we're debuting a new television ad that starts airing this week - challenging John McCain to give America some straight talk, and tell us all the things that his plan for endless war in Iraq will make the American people sacrifice.


    The ad features, for the first time, a female Iraq veteran and her small child. Rose Forrest served 12 months in Iraq, and gave birth to her little son, when she came home. In the ad, Rose challenges John McCain to tell the truth about what endless war means for her child, and all of our children. Senator McCain needs to give us some straight talk about how much endless war in Iraq is going to cost. We don't have an endless pot of money, or an endless supply of troops and equipment.

    So what are Americans going to have to sacrifice if he has his way on Iraq? Health care? Decent jobs? Border security that all those National Guardsmen in Iraq could be performing? Rescue and cleanup after disasters like Katrina and tornados in Kansas and Tennessee? Are we going to have to sacrifice our chance to cripple Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda in Afghanistan? We can't do it all, but John McCain seems to pretend that we can.

    We're airing this ad in the hopes that Senator McCain finally gets honest with the American people. We're putting it out there so that the media and power-brokers start to ask the same questions. Endless war in Iraq means drastic sacrifices for Americans in their everyday lives, and in terms of our own security.

    It's all about priorities, and on this question, the wheels are falling off the Straight Talk Express.

    This is just the beginning. In the coming months, we'll be on an all-out offensive, to expose the strategies that hurt us here at home and abroad in our fight against al Qaeda. We're going to challenge our leaders to get our global strategy right. You can count on us leading the way, but we cannot do it without you. So please, view our ad and pass it along to all of your friends and family. Together, we can change America's course.

          There must be a correlation between where one graduates in their class at the Naval Acadamy and their ability (or lack thereof) to bring aircraft back to the carrier.

            Actually, I think the 5 planes thing comes from McCain's grandfather, also named John. As far as I know, the current McCain only lost 2 planes. One on the deck of his carrier and the other when he was shot down.

            McCain was born the son and grandson of admirals in Coco Sola, Panama, on 29 August 1936. As a self-confessed military brat, he inevitably chose a navy career. There was no other option for the grandson of John 'Slew' McCain, a man who had commanded aircraft carriers in the Second World War. Slew McCain was so driven that when the navy passed a rule saying only aviators could command a carrier, the old man went to flight school while in his fifties. He crashed five planes before finally getting his wings, and then his carrier. In one Pacific battle, planes under Slew McCain's command sank 49 Japanese ships in a single day.

              We may have trouble lining up two dozen shriekers, saying how dare you criticize our candidate. Give us a few days, 'kay?

                Ah, ok.

                I thought it a little weird even during Jr's service that he'd be given so many chances to prove that he could bring a plane back home in one piece.

                  You know, I had heard that so many times before, that I just accepted it. After I pretended to be Moon, I decided to look it up for myself.

                    Okay.

                    Just don't bring in any of the folks who ripped Slick for commiting adultery. Otherwise I'll have to call those people hypocrites too.

                      You know, Ithink Raz has said more negative things about McCain leaving his first wife, than McCains former wife has.

                        The MSM has been strangely quiet about it, but I think that if we truly want to learn about the character of the candidates, that they should be discussing this matter more.

                          If character mattered to the MSM or people in general, Clinton and W would have never seen the Oval office outside of a tour.
