McCain's not making 'gaffes' ...... he's a dottering old man
Yeah, yeah .... age is off limits.

Bullshit.

The guy wants to be president.

He says shit 'on the trail'.

I listen and I form opinions.

He makes way too many seemingly small, innocent 'gaffes'.

My opinions: They're not 'gaffes'. They're the result of memory issues that many of face as we age. It is normal and nothing to be ashamed of. But it is, in my mind, all on its own, a disqualifier for the man to be president.

As that eBay dress you had to have won't grow in size in the mail on its way to you, neither will his memory issues get any better with time.

You should not have bought the dress and **we** should not vote for McCain.

4. Nah, just early signs of garden variety senile dementia
although the way Lieberman seems to be leading him around, Alzheimer's is certainly remotely possible.

I just don't hear it when he's maundering. What I hear is a man who has been losing ground for years, allowing lobbyists to tell him how to vote and not really doing his job. He doesn't know what he stands for because he had no clue about what he was voting on. I hear a man who is confusing past with present and a man who gets lost a lot, thinking he's who he was and not who he is now.

He's just not qualified to hold any office, least of all the presidency. He needs to retire.

8. Sounds like the 'pukes have their perfect choice ala the Gipper and junior: someone who can be
easily manipulated because he is shallow, incurious, and hasn't a clue. :D

2. he's not a dottering old man....he's a blatant LIAR, and knows that TV "news"
will not call him on it

when, and if, they do, there will be a comment or two, then the subject will drop, just the way it's been happening since the beginning of Bush's campaign in 1999.

3. He's a homicidal dotard. Everything America does NOT need as President....
Of course, it remains to be seen if other, irrelevant issues result in him becoming President.

6. he has come to love that which he should hate...
war, battle, conflict....

triumph (an expression for which he has no definition) and victory (a concept for which he has no measure)....

they have eluded his personal 'war life' for over 40 years and he cannot help himself but pursue them, even under the guise of social and economic 'principles'...

war-hero?...yes, by definition

war-monger?...yes, by every personal action and statement...

he is a sad sight

10. Hia age is irrelevant. He was a doddering young man, too. Loose cannon shooting off his mouth ...
... with his brain disengaged. He's an arrogant, posturing prick who regards himself exempt from standards others ascribe to.

13. I can't wait for the debates
That should be entertaining.

Of course, the Republicans probably will make sure everything is so scripted that McCain won't be forced to use whats left of his mind.

14. They're the result of a condition called "ignorance" that McWayne
has had all of his life.
