As an Arizonan who has always been supportive of Senator McCain in the past, I am extremely disappointed in his current behavior.

He has gotten the presidential bug very bad and is losing his moral compass

I have related this feeling to the Senator and his staff.

Listening to the POTUs speech and don't know who writes it..but some of the stuff he says about Sadam parallells right with his own deeds here in USA.. FFI also agree with you on McCain..

I liked him at one time too, then I studied him more and discovered calling him "The Manchurian Candidate" is being rather kind. Google USS Forrestal+McCain for more.
From Wayne Madsen:
January 16, 2006 -- Why is John McCain so supportive of Bush and Cheney after being so viciously attacked by them in the 2000 campaign? The answer to this question may partially rest in Navy records detailing the events that took place on the USS Forrestal in "Yankee Station" in the Gulf of Tonkin at the end of July 1967. The neo-cons, who have had five years to examine every file within the Department of Defense, have likely accessed documents that could prove embarrassing to McCain, who was on board the USS Forrestal on July 29, 1967, and whose A-4 Skyhawk was struck by an air-to-ground Zuni missile that had misfired from an F-4 Phantom.
Bush always picks someone even worse than before...

WTF?
John McCain is now drinking the lunatic religious right Kool-aid.
He has totally gone over the edge.
BTW-What happened to that other post about the hilarious ad?

Funny thing about McCain.

He has this love/hate thing with W.
This is part of the 'love', which we all know, drives him to lose his moral compass [borrowing from ff].

McCain cannot win on this platform, though he may try.

We all know who will be president in '08.

PJF! We'll find a nice spot for McCain somewhere in the Administration under watchful eyes.

McCain has sold his soul to the devil...what a disappoint. You think he has any self-respect left?

McCain is simply trying to make amends to the Religious Right after giving them a needed thrashing in a 2000 speech and infuriating them. They have long memories and remember this and other remarks...Former Fed I feel the same way about him now too.

"Neither party should be defined by pandering to the outer reaches of American politics and the agents of intolerance whether they be Louis Farrakhan or Al Sharpton on the left, or Pat Robertson or Jerry Falwell on the right."

McCain must really be in trouble. He was once an honest man then he sold his soul to the devil aka Bush. Now he's all over the place saying anything just to get a vote. Sad to see a man sink so low. His career is over.

In addition to his current grovelling, by second-hand word of mouth...no sense of humour and very little personal skills. Integrity should be among the top ten, but I lost the respect I had for him when he was backing the Iraq War (conflict, whatever). It takes lots of charisma to make this crazy country work. You need more than just ideals, ideas, etc. You need to be able to make folks "BELIEVE" to work together. Mr. McCain doesn't have it.

I would think that someone that had been a POW under similar circumstances would be more forthcoming and honest about where this administration is regarding the illegal way we were enticed into this war. Sort of makes you feel like the drones were circling over the US as well as Iraq, just painted differently.

Jack Abramoff meets a new best friend, John McCain!!!

I hope they all say hi to Little Soldier!!!!

Dear Judge,

Let Jack Abramoff serve cold wine on all fours for his best friend Tommy Delay. I'm sure they will all get along just fine with all that graft!


And please Jack, bring Ney, Dana Rohrbacker, Steny Hoyer and your other best friends to the same prison.

To Former Fed:

I used to McCain's campaign chair in PG County Maryland and lately I have been very disappointed in him.

I may not give him my support in '08.

At the time, I voted for McCain in the primary because I didn't like Bush. (still don't like Bush) It was voting for the lesser of two evils during that primary. In addition, I really liked his 'straight talk' stance and campaing reform.

He has become a media hog. It is very surprising to me that he has become Bush's best friend. They both never have gotten along on any political issue. Bush now supports the McCain Kennedy immigration bill. Very interesting.
