JOHN McCAIN WAS IN THE BOTTOM 1% OF THE CLASS OF 1958 AT THE US NAVAL ACADEMY

Filed under: BARACK OBAMA, Bush, hillary clinton, John McCain, life, mideast, news, politics, war — gasdocpol @ 12:37 am

IN FACT AS 895th IN A CLASS OF 899 DOES NOT EVEN PUT HIM IN THE TOP HALF OF THE BOTTOM 1%
BUT THAT WAS OK BECAUSE HIS FATHER AND GRANDFATHER WERE 4 STAR ADMIRALS.

THEN HE GOT SHOT DOWN BECAUSE HE DID NOT FOLLOW PROCEDURES AND CONSEQUENTLY BECAME A WAR HERO. ( NORMALLY THAT SHOULD BE SCORE ONE FOR THE ENEMY)

McCain is no more conciencious now in doing his homework and understanding the issues than he was doing his studies and understanding math and naval science when he was at the USNA.

  1. Wow! Thanks for that! Not that it sways my vote in any way…

    From WikiAnswers – http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Where_did_John_McCain_rank_in_the_Naval_Academy_1958_class

    After high school, McCain was accepted to the United States Naval Academy, though he was not a strong student. He was often disciplined for misbehavior and ultimately graduated 894 of 899 of the class of 1958.

    Yikes! Obama ’08

  3. Sorry but….experience is worth much more than book learning! I never seen a book be correct when you’re in the field doing the job! Thats why most jobs have on the job training which Obama does not have any of! šŸ™‚

  4. McCain has a lot of experience screwing up. He does not appeared to have learned much from his mistakes. The Keating Five scandal was very similar to the present banking crisis. There is a difference between 20 years of experience and one year of experience 20 times. If McCain did not have a father and grandfather who were 4 star admirals ,he would not have gotten into and through the Naval Academy and flight training and contiuation as an aviator. There are no witnesses to his version of his POW internment. He cracked, sang like a canary and may have been given prostitutes in exchange for treason.
    Most Senators do not necessarily make anything go. They discuss,debate ,BS and vote. McCain has develloped some social skills in his lifetime and promoted himself as a war hero in the Senate.
    The one year McCain ostensibly made something go was when he got to head a training unit for a year. He used his position to violate the Uniform Code of Military Justice with fraternising and adultery. He never would have gotten the position without his father’s influence.

    Common sense, personal self discipline, decisiveness and good judgement have propelled Obama. His father’s influence and BS have propelled McCain. Military and self-discipline have always been lacking in McCain.

  6. He sounds perfect for the job.

  7. 8. McCain would be perfect to be GW Bush’s third term. Both had achieving fathers and grandfathers whose legacies got them into elite colleges. Both were lousy students. Both misbehaved far in to adulthood. Both were propelled by their fathers.

    McCain will be GW Bush on steroids.

  8. And we know SO much about Obama’s educational and professional experience. NOT.

    At least we know SOMETHING about McCain upon which to base our vote.

    So really, other than his good looks and charm, what about Obama’s past, gives you any indication that he’ll be able to do any of what he says?

  9. …and I was a B+ student in high school, and after living life for a while, I went back to college and graduated top of my class, summa cum laude.

    Life changes a person’s priorities. I would postulate that this happened for McCain. It happened for Obama too, but not in a good way.

  10. doberman – I am not sure of your point. I don’t think the post was about the virtues of obama. Just some facts about McCain. Maybe tomorrow he will post about Obama’s youth.

    Does anyone know about McCain?

    1. Most people do not know about his anger mangement problem and his compulsive superstitions and gambling and their impact on his decion-making processes.

    2. McCain’s whole “Raison d’etre” is that he was a “war hero”. We have only to go on his own unconfirmed version . There are versions (equally unconfirmed) that are more consistant with his behavior pre and post Vietnam.

    3. How does 20 hours of actual combat and 20 combat missions make him a war hero? Many POWs were offered and refused early release.

    4. As a toddler he held his breath until he passed out. In high scool his nickname was Punk McNasty.
    He was raunchy and rowdy, undisciplined and belligerant at the USNA.

    5. He had profane outbursts at other Senators.

    McCain no more does his homework now than when he was at the bottom of his class at USNA.

    BTW It sounds as if you were a good student in high school and a better one in college. That would favor you but not guarantee that you would do well afterward. I hope that you did.

  12. Being in the bottom one percent of his class does not make John McCain stupid but it does say that he did not apply himself to his studies THEN. IF McCain were now demonstrating a deep and wide understanding of the issues we could then say that he was a “late bloomer” HOWEVER, the fact that he repeatedly confused Sunnis ,Shiites and al Qaeda and once needed to be corrected by Joe Lieberman on camera tells me that he does not even understand the rudiments of Iraqi and Mideast politics. And how could he be in the Senate for 28 years without a better grasp of economics? The Keating Five scandal should have been a wake up call. He pleaded ignorance to get off the hook but did nothing to correct that ignorance.

  13. The Keating Five scandal should have been a wake up call. He pleaded ignorance to get off the hook but did nothing to correct that ignorance.

    To be fair to McCain, that ignorance has serverd him well. I am sure he has seen many an informed man slip by the wayside for want of being a little more ignorant.

  14. McCain is a whore. He whored himself out to the Viet Cong, he whored himself out to enjoy the spotlight when he was released, he whored himself out to start a political career riding on the coattails of that fame, he whored himself to numerous mistresses when he came home to discover his trophy wife wasn’t so much a trophy anymore. The only reason he’s more than an historical footnote is because Reagan made him a pet project and used him for photo ops.

    If McCain were a whore but had a more disciplined rigorous intellect, he were more emotionally stable not superstitious or a compulsive gambler and not have an anger managment problem he might be a capable president.

    Further, if he were not propelled through the navy and were not deemed a war hero because of his 4 star admiral father and grandfather and then propelled in the Senate by a war hero status, which I question, it would add to McCain’s qualifications in my eyes.
