McBush Hugs

May 22, 08 3:02 PM CDT | AP Online

Republican John McCain said Thursday that Democrat Barack Obama had NO RIGHT to criticize McCain's position on military scholarships because the Illinois senator DID NOT serve in uniform.

"And I will NOT ACCEPT from Senator Obama, who did NOT feel it was his responsibility to SERVE OUR COUNTRY IN UNIFORM, ANY lectures on my regard for THOSE WHO DID SERVE," the Arizona senator said in a harshly worded statement issued Thursday.

So, if McCain says Barack Obama does NOT have a RIGHT to criticize HIS position on the MILITARY scholarships because he DID NOT serve our country in uniform, then this must mean that IF he should become President of the United States of American, those American's who CHOOSE to NOT serve THEIR country in uniform, then those AMERICAN CITIZENS will NOT have the RIGHT to CRITICIZE him, but ONLY THOSE who have served? Sure seems like that's the way it will be IF he becomes president?

My question is, what OTHER issues will this man feel the American people will have NO RIGHT TO CRITICIZE?

PLEASE stop to think about what you're gonna get with this man!

But yet he listens to Bush (Had Daddy get him in the National Guard so he wouldn't have to go to Viet Nam) and Dick Cheney ( who didged the draft i think 4 times, last time he told them "I have better things to do" than serve in uniform).
McBush is insulting all who serve and love the US without wearing a uniform.

If (God forbid) this man becomes president, ONLY those who have served this country by wearing a uniform will be permitted to have a say when it comes to anything dealing with the military, INCLUDING the war in Iraq, or any other (Iran) war we may find ourselves in!

I don't need....
.. to be a criminal in order to tell someone not to break the law do I?

Absolutely not.

I am not a Bush fan..
But I am not an Obama fan.. Nor am I a clinton fan Nor am I a McCain fan.. I am quickly finding myself as I have in past elections wondering why I am being drawn to figure who is the lesser of evils to pick from. No candidate stands forward to me as a leader I am inspired to follow. I have at this point 20 years in my uniform and in January when I retire none of them will have the title of "MY" Commander-in-Chief. But the part that pisses me off with McCains DUMB ASSED statement is Obama, or worse any protester who thinks they have had an epiphany about the world and now wants to take their original idea out and change the world by making a sign and chanting outside of a recruiting station or somewhere else to get their 15 minutes of fame, doesn't HAVE to have served in order to have Freedom of Speach.. You and I and everyone else who ever wore a uniform guarantee'd that right along with a few others. We may find it irritating that they take those rights and priveledges for granted and think they are entitled to act like jerks to the very people who give them the life they live. But it is better for those of us who know to just feel sorry for them and be confident in the knowledge we live better than they do. Perhaps living with the Politicians, McCain has just forgotten where he came from and what it means when we say "Freedom isn't Free".

Re: I am not a Bush fan..
Not only has McCain forgotten where he came from, but has also forgotten that we ALL have the right to Freedom of Speech, whether an American has served or not.

I honestly believe with all my heart and soul that Obama is the answer to restoring this country to the way it was. Yet, there are times when I feel it's too late, because of the horrible mess Bush will have left behind.

No, freedom isn't free. Thank you for serving your country!

You're putting words in his mouth. McCain's position/comment is limited to providing scholarships to those who serve in the military.
May. 28th, 2008 09:35 pm (UTC)
Open your eyes and read between his lines...
I feel his attack on Obama was extremely offensive, not only to Obama, but to all those who have chosen not to serve! He's already saying who has, and who doesn't have rights to disagree with him about his position on military scholarships, and he ISN'T even the president! Open your eyes to that Freudian slip, Dave. He's already showing signs that it's going to be HIS WAY OR NO WAY ABOUT EVERYTHING, including the WAR in Iraq!

He isn’t what he appears to be, a kind and respectful man. This man has a horrible temper, and men with tempers like that are EXTREMELY dangerous!

Normally two men hugging is kind of hot, but this is just gross. Excuse me, I need to puke.

You are excused! :o)

Am doing my best to not push the argument further. The GIs will have their final word, but it's all moot since it passed in the Senate and will be hardpressed not to pass inthe House.

But I'd like to say that the Bush/McCain hug picture is one of my favorites because it's going to be used to punctuate the McCain/Bush connection for the rest of the campaign.

Strange how the warmongers (the House) are watching pennies when it comes to our GI’s, yet blood is of no object when continuing this war.

I had an ulterior motive for posting that McBush pic!

He would spell disaster for the U.S.A. as far as the rest of the world is concerned...
May. 28th, 2008 09:44 pm (UTC)
I honestly believe that if this man wins, his uncontrollable temper would start WWIII! I honestly believe this!

Why is McCain reaching THAT LOW for a hug?? I don't reach that low for hugs.
May. 28th, 2008 09:10 pm (UTC)
I do. heeee
May. 28th, 2008 08:58 pm (UTC)
just because it made me smile

Re: just because it made me smile
Now why can't they be our politicians? Thanks for the smiles.

I read a book not too long ago and a few Vietnam veterans had been interviewed. It seemed to me that our not winning the Vietnam war was a big disappointment to these guys.

Could it be that the time McCain spent as a POW affected him such that he strongly feels that winning the Iraq war is very important, that it is bad for our troops if we don't win?

This could be a distortion created by all that time as a captive.

distortion of the Vietnam War
My Dad and many of his friends are Vietnam Vets, and it is true that they are very much disappointed that the war wasn't won.

If McCain's desire to continue this present war is a distortion of the Vietnam War, then he's nothing more than a warmonger, and he has no business being our President.

I have to agree with him on that one, although I'd have probably said either served or had a close family member that served. Personally I've grown a little more than tired of the general public taking for granted the blanket of freedom that those who serve provide. I think the public should be a little more appreciative of the sacrifices that we continually make. For a change, try ACTING like we're at war and stop wasting resources.
May. 29th, 2008 03:36 pm (UTC)
POW affected him
If the time McCain spent as a POW affected him, or any family member, to the point that he now feels that winning the Iraq war is important, then all the more reason this man should not be our President.

I believe the majority of the public is very much appreciative of our American heroes (soldiers). We’ve come to a point to where we don’t believe in this war anymore, and this is the reason we want them all back safe and sound with their families.

Thank you for serving our country.

I just realized Chimpy wears pleated pants.

He should be smacked with a cream pie for that. Jeebus, who wears pleated pants?

Any politician can be critized by any person: period. Just because you did or didn't serve in the military is unimportant. Not all patriotic people chose to serve. McCain is just being a coward by saying such a thing.

since you've posted about Hugo Chavez before, I thought I'd give you this link to a 93 min. video on Chavez & Venezuela that I just ran across. this isnt to say I'm all "RAH RAH Chavez!", it just has a very different perspective than anything Ive ever been exposed to and I'm always interested in learning other people's perspectives, especially those that go beyond slogans and soundbites.
