    Dude, that is heartless…

    Steve, what is heartless? All I’m questioning is his stance that being a POW qualifies him for president?

    How about an ability to manage a multi trillion dollar country? What about ubderstanding foreign affairs? What about having the foresight to leave the country better off then when they received it?

    I DON’T CARE THAT HE WAS A POW when it comes to considering him for president.

    When I fill out a job app, being a vet (or being a POW) would not get me the job unless maybe I was applying for something at Veteran Affairs. Maybe that’s what McPOW should do, run for director of the Department of Veteran Affairs.

    Oh wait, he cannot do that, his voting record shows he is against vets before he was for them. He cares more about the Georgian vets that he sent his wife there to visit them.

    So again, tell me how this was heartless?

    absolutely zero fellow vietnamese conflict p.o.w.s have endorsed john p.W. songbird mcsame-hensley. that silence is very strange and very strong.

    Yep. That’s heartles — Lindh did nothing to be dragged into this …

    Not fair. At last Lindh held strong beliefs about something (however strange those beliefs may seem to the rest of us). McCain flipflops on everything.

    Tudor and Roy,

    That is pretty funny and pathetic, never thought of it that way. Maybe John Lindh is more qualified than McMansion!!!

    And how does having no experience qualify you?

    Don’t you mean man on the right?

    No kind of a slap in the face that if the guy on the left is qualified to be president because he was a POW then is the guy on the right also qualified?

    Kinda saying that being a POW is not what it takes.

    This is priceless.

    I love the question about experience, Lisa. My answer is to point out that the current Bush administration has more experience than any other in history. Period. Cheney and company have served multiple administrations, they have credentials as long as my arm, but look where we are now.

    McCain crashed lots of airplanes (in addition to being shot down), and he brings little intellectual capital to the White House.

    George W. Bush, after a series of business failures was a governor of Texas, and he has an MBA.

    How is that so different from Obama, with his state legislative and freshman senate experience? Obama has a law degree, taught at the University of Chicago (conservative, offered tenured track, but turned it down).

    I want government to recruit the best and the brightest, not political zealots from Regent University.

    I want my civil rights back.
    I want state/local control of education, not Every Child Left Behind.
    I want an Energy Policy.
    I want affordable college education for my kids.
    I want affordable health care.
    I want Karl Rove in jail (well, we can’t have everything, can we).

    Steve-O:
    heartless and tasteless.
    John Walker Lindh is an enemy combatant, a traitor to his country. Comparing him to McCain (as a POW) is a slap in the face to every American POW.
    Shame on you.
    If you don’t care McCain was a POW, why do you keep bringing it up? That is not the only quality he is running on. Open your eyes, do some research, use your head for something besides a hatrack.

    Yeah Steve O, why do you hate freedom? McCain defended the freedom of this country and Johnny Taliban fought for a group that wants to take our freedom. Big freaking difference there buddy. You really think you could run a blog like this in Afghanistan or Iran? WTF are you thinking with this one? I can’t stand for this bullshit…

    you call patriot act 1 and 2, our freedom? go back to your dirt shack you redneck jdrool.

    Lazarus,

    I haven’t compared McCain to anything have I? Really, have I? All I have done is point out that McCain keeps relating EVERYTHING from his platform to his POW experience and with this poster all I am saying is that being a POW DOES NOT qualify you to be president otherwise the guy on the left could run for President.

    Steve,

    Get over your freedom loving self. Jesus, just because John’s picture is next the other John every right wing nut job gets their undies in a bunch.

    Sheesh. Wake up sheeple!!!

    Why is a living coward even being considered for this office - is surrendering a quality we want in these times of endless war. I think not gentlemen. First he loses a million dollar aircraft to ground fire and then cooperates with his captors under the knoweldge his papa is a big wet wheel. In my country he would have been imprisioned then shot!

    The American POWs who were most closely associated with McCain say that he collaborated with the North Vietnamese; their nickname for him was John “Songbird” McCain.

    On the other hand, consider the actions of our current Glorious Leader; he told us “the terrorists hate us for our freedom!” but then began a rapid process of pushing through laws that have destroyed many of our most basic freedoms.

    Hmmmmm…. Maybe collaborating with the enemy really IS the most important qualification for becoming President!

    Why shouldn’t we get all bunched up dude, you are picking on our guy? (allegedly)

    Next thing you are going to do is put Mitt Romney next to Chevy Chase…

    Paul B -I wasn’t defending Bush and 2nd of all if youn think any of the following isn’t going to cost you one way or another keep dreaming:

    I want my civil rights back.
    You won’t because you didn’t lose any to begin with
    I want state/local control of education, not Every Child Left Behind. Well maybe if administrators stopped stealing and wasting money then there should be no reason not to.
    I want an Energy Policy. Oh and did you want one 10 years ago?
    I want affordable college education for my kids. Well of course who doesn’t but you know what we alway had to pay for college,some kids actually had to pay for it themselves. My parents worked 3 jobs between them and still couldn’t afford college for us and I hate to tell you how long ago that was.
    I want affordable health care. Well if you are willing to pay more taxes from your income you will.
    I want Karl Rove in jail (well, we can’t have everything, can we). Why?

    You know what I want someone who doesn’t quote radicals and pins classes against one another. Way to unite the country.
    He’ll McGovern this country like Jimmy Carter. Remember that? So in ther words no matter what the world s like I doubt you will ever say it’s “the World as it should be”

    Nice touch putting McCain on the left by the way…

    Google “songbird McCain”. Enough said

    PS McCain was the cause for almost sinking an aircrat carrier. His hotdogging set the jet behind him on fire with explosions to follow. History Channel show him gallantly exiting his plane. What he in fact did was cold start his F4 which let out the fireball behind him and the rest “was” history

    McBush defended the freedom of this country? What a mindless bunch of hogwash.

    In what way? List them, please. I’ve had it up to here with witless robots who parrot whatever the scum in the Zionist media feed them. The military in this country doesn’t have SHIT to do with defending this country. It is nothing but mob muscle to steal other countries’ resources, if they refuse to bend over and let Uncle Scam turn them into a subsidiary of Pepsi or Archer Daniels Midland.

    McBush is a war criminal. He is not a hero. He is also clearly insane. Anybody who would vote for ANY of these treasonous scumbags is a contemptible asshole to begin with, but to have this guy in the White House, with his finger near the nuclear trigger, is something that nobody with an ounce of brains should want to see.

    A better comparison might be Gary Glitter. Both served time in Vietnam prisons. If McCain, in being a prisoner in Vietnam, is qualification to be President, then isn’t Gary Glitter equally qualified to be his Vice President??

    McCain-Glitter ‘08!! A perfect ticket for the Minneapolis Airport Restroom crowd!!

    No one that fought in the Vietnam war fought for the freedom of anyone in the United States.
    It was a misguided, illegal war that only hurt the people of Vietnam. THat country now is a trading partner with US, so our “intervention” accomplished nothing.

    As far as being a POW qualifies someone for president, here’s what Winston Churchill had to say about it. “A prisoner of war is a man who tries to kill you and fails, and then asks you not to kill him.”

    Or you can paraphrase General George S. Patton, No one won a war by getting caputured by the enemy, you win a war by capturing the other poor dumb bastard.”

    Here’s the original General Patton quote “No bastard ever won a war by dying for his country. He won it by making the other poor dumb bastard die for his country.”

    “THat country now is a trading partner with US, so our “intervention” accomplished nothing.”

    LOL… they are a trading partner… Take a look at CUBA some time… whom we never went to war with, allegedly.

  33. By Chris Radulich on Aug 28, 2008 | Reply

    you can’t seriously compare cuba and vietnam. The reason we are not trading with cuba is because of the large contingent of cubans who hate castro in Florida. There is no such contingent of those hating Nam.

    Mr. Radulich:
    Gotta agree with you there.
    Vietnam has a large labor pool. Aside from good cigars and rum, what does cuba have that we want?

  35. By Lisa on Aug 28, 2008 | Reply

    Gee I can’t imagine why Cubans would hate Castro.

    I can its because he is like Bush/Cheny/McCain , neither of them have done a damn thing good for their country. They only think of themselves.
