NOW WE MUST DEAL WITH THE FACT THAT JOHN McCAIN WAS APPARENTLY NO WAR HERO. HIS SERVICE IN VIETNAM WAS HONORABLE AND PERHAPS COMMENDABLE BUT IT WOULD BE A HUGE LEAP TO TAKE HIS 23 UNHEROIC COMBAT MISSIONS AND HIS SURVIVAL AS A POW AND CONCLUDE THAT SOMEHOW THE THOUSANDS OF VIETNAM VETS WHO WENT INTO HARMS WAY WERE ANY LESS HEROES.
There is testimony that McCain was given special privileges because his of father a 4 star admiral who was commander of US forces in Vietnam. There is testimony that he was spending time with North Vietnamese prostitutes when he was supposed to be in solitary confinement.
McCain’s account of his internment has been allowed to prevail and McCain has blocked access to North Vietnamese records which could confirm his story.
If someone has evidence to the contrary, I would like to hear it.
I would prefer not to lie about McCain. The Bush/Cheney lies are catching up with them and the same would happen to me.
There are plenty of other reasons why I believe that John McCain would be a disaster as President.
