I Spent Years as a POW with John McCain, and His Finger Should Not Be Near the Red Button

Old article might explain John's personality.



A fellow Vietnam POW of McCain's warns of the candidate's "quick and explosive temper" and suggests McCain is exaggerating his imprisonment.
August 20, 2008 |
John McCain is a long-time acquaintance of mine that goes way back to our time together at the U.S. Naval Academy and as Prisoners of War in Vietnam. He is a man I respect and admire in some ways. But there are a number of reasons why I will not vote for him for President of the United States.

When I was a Plebe (4th classman, or freshman) at the Naval Academy in 1957-58, I was assigned to the 17th Company for my four years there. In those days we had about 3,600 midshipmen spread among 24 companies, thus about 150 midshipmen to a company. As fortune would have it, John, a First Classman (senior) and his room mate lived directly across the hall from me and my two room mates. Believe me when I say that back then I would never in a million or more years have dreamed that the crazy guy across the hall would someday be a Senator and candidate for President!

2. How can you ever tell what deluded person makes it into Congress...

Some people just do. Then, when they get powerful, every bit of their dark side comes out to reveal who they REALLY are.

Gramps should take his health care and retire, doing volunteer work at a VA hospital. See, John, these are the real heroes, and you're just a fucking tool.
