Discussion in '2008 Presidential Election' started by Southpaw, Aug 21, 2008.
And his comment about the draft yesterday was a little scary too.
Guy sounds upset that he and others didn't get the recognition that McCain did.
The guy basically repeated every criticism about McCain and offered nothing new.
He doesn't sound upset at all. Completely bogus assumption.
Does it make the criticism untrue? Why are you dismissing this guy? These are important character issues that people need to know about before voting. Not everyone has heard these stories.
Who the hell are you to tell someone how something sounds to them?
Not dismissing anything my friend.
My friends, the guy had nothing new to offer.
Everybody already knew he coasted threw the academy. It was GD trivia question at the top of this site for awhile, my friend.
We know he has a temper. We know he is pandering to the religious peeps, my friend. We know he has embraced Bush and Co to became president. My friend, this guy offered not a single shred of new information. He drew attention to nothing. My friends he sounds upset at the POW attention McCain receives. He consistently follows up every McCain story with a me and other dudes too, my friend.
We know his policies. We know he isn't the only POW.
He titles the opinion piece "and his finger should not be on the red button" and then offers zero reasons why. The title is misleading to the column my friend.
My friends, what is the point of somebody from his past coming out to offer no new opinions?
Louis, you'd be surprised how little McCain supporters know about the man. Just because you pay attention, don't assume they do.
Klod, who are these McCain supporters you speak of? I thought there were only Obama humpers and those who see reality. Nobody actually supports John McCain.
true... ok, people that will vote for McCain because he's got an 'R' following his name and because they have such a great track record of selecting our President.
So, given that perspective, do you think it matters if they know anything about the man? I'm beginning to believe it doesn't.
For many of them, no.
I think it's refreshing to hear someone that's pretty much untouchable on the subject say that being a POW doesn't make you a better candidate for President. THAT is new.
Honestly, I talk to Republicans many times a week and bring up many of these issues. I have to tell you that as shocking as it may sound, nearly every time, they look at me astonished and say, "Wow, I had never heard any of that before."
People really don't pay attention in this country to politics. That's why McCain's superficial "Paris Hilton, Obama attack" ad was so successful. It's sad, but that's where most people get their news.
Yes, he does. He sounds bitter that McCain is getting his POW played up, while all the others who were POW are ignored. And he has a good point. But it comes through loud and clear: "McCain wasn't the only POW, remember??"
Don't try and tell someone else they didn't hear what they heard.
And complete common sense.
