WAS JOHN McCAIN REALLY A WAR HERO ?

AND IF,INDEED, HE WAS A WAR HERO, DOES THAT MEAN THAT HE WOULD BE EVEN A CAPABLE PRESIDENT, MUCH LESS A GOOD ONE.

I question McCain’s war hero status. His 23 combat missions were relatively few and undistinguished and ordinarily would not qualify him as a war hero. At best, his 5 1/2 years as a POW qualify him as a survivor not a war hero. We only have McCain’s version of what happened. He has blocked access to North Vietnamese records of his internment. We know for certain that he cooperated with his captor’ SOME but it may have been A LOT. He may well have enjoyed the company of prostitutes when we was pretended to be in solitary confinement. He apparently lost several US Navy planes and almost sunk the USS Forestal and killed 168 sailors resulting from his juvenile hot dog capers. He was a raunchy party boy at the Naval Academy and that continued into flight training and indeed upon his return from Vietnam.

  1. Politics is also unpredictable. No one four years ago could have predicted that in the US an African-American Democratic Barack Obama would defeat Hillary Clinton, the predicted woman candidate competing for the presidency of the United States in 2008 she will urge her backers to bankroll t Obama’s bid, No one likely would have predicted that the Conservative Stephen Harper the Canadian PM of a minority government would last even this long.

  2. Who’d have thunk that a neer-do-well drifter with a drinking problem until he was 40 and then a serially failing businessman (Arbusto, Spectrum Seven ,Bush Drilling and Exploration ) could be propped up by the Neocons and put in the Oval Office as their front in 2000.
