McCain was never a good conservative. He and his running dog buddy Lindsey Graham were always working to prevent conservative advances.
Now the Trumpmeister has everyone upset–Trump is accused of not being properly deferential to McCain but that’s not true–Trump gave McCain his due for being a stand up POW under severe torture. However McCain is not sacred and shouldn’t be treated as such if he is in the political arena–far from it since much of his political conduct is inexcusable for a declared conservative. He has no principles and is always buffing up his image for the lefty press. What a worthless man when it comes to conservative causes.
His POW status does not make him off bounds for criticism. Moreover, his despicable conduct in regards to Viet Nam takes some of the luster off his performance as a courageous prisoner.
He and John Kerry, another bad news VN vet, colluded to keep information on MIAs and POWs suppressed, leaving people behind, even? Disgusting.
Reminds one of the performance of Ike on the American POWS of WWII. Many Americans from liberated German POW camps were transferred with our knowledge to Russian prisons–deplorable and reprehensible.
I would suggest that John McCain has betrayed a public trust more than once, he is a hotheaded egomaniac, treacherous to the interests of America, and pretty damn stupid. What a pathetic candidate for president.
His suffering at the hands of evil commies seems to have taken something out of him, otherwise he would know how to fight for America and American interests instead of pandering to the anti-American anti-military left.
He is so consistently wrong on even national defense issues that I wonder if it is reflective of his empty headedness or his desire to get good media coverage.
