My son was a Senate Page and found that McCain was only interested in one thing.
How it would affect McCain. My son said that Senators have varying
interactions with the Pages, mostly positive. He stated that whenever McCain
interacted with them, it was always negative and McCain would go out of his way
to basically tell the pages to leave him alone and not talk to him. My son
described him as a "gumpy old man".Since McCain is being
deified by everyone, I won't join the club.His military service
cannot and shouldn't be discounted, especially his POW years. No one
should have had to go through what he and his fellow POW's went through.
For that part of their service, they are all heroes. Not just McCain. But his time in Congress has been more of a self promotion tour. I
cannot think of one important piece of legislation that he has sponsored other
than McCain-Feinbgold. His McCain Feingold was nuked by the Supreme Court. I feel he's been largely an obstructionist and I was particularly
upset over his Gang of 8 behavior. Not so much over the gang of 14 however.I did like McCain at one time but as I looked closer at him, it was
Time for Mr McCain to hang up the cleats.
I appreciate the humility and civility and service of Senator McCain. By no
means could I say I always agree with him, but his positive qualities make him
@LOU Montana,Great hearing about keeping out negative remarks.
McCain's courage while a POW forever defines him as principled and
resolute. One need not agree with him on every opinion to recognize him for
putting integrity before partisanship. He will be missed.
Well said David of Centerville and Lou Montana!The likes of John
McCain is the fabric which makes America Great.The likes of Trump
are a stain on that fabric but will be washed and flushed away, down the sewers
from whence they came!
John McCain is not a Republican. Nor a Democrat. He's an American.
He's an American hero. He's a guy that does what's
right-regardless of political factors. He had to choose a party, but he knew he
didn't have to support party mistakes and wrong doings. America needs more
McCains, regardless of party affiliation.
Once again Trump and his canal offend the intellect, the character and the
morality of this nation by attacking one of its finest. Trump has enjoyed
wealth and luxury his entire life, bullying and undermining others to get what
he wants. Meanwhile McCain’s history includes being a POW and enduring
unthinkable torture while serving his country. For Trump to speak of
McCain’s sacrifice as being nothing is embarrassing, revealing
Trump’s own nothingness. Trump is an embarrassment. A small
man. I reject him wholly and without reservation. I have no respect for the
poor character of this man.John McCain is a hero. There is a high
place for the Maverik in American history, folklore, and the fiber of our
To all you haters of John McCain, please keep you negative comments to
yourself.McCain is one of America's finest!
