McCain4Prez says: "Torture's bad but I'll still kiss the ass of the sleaze authorizing it."

After watching him defend Jon Kyle in recent compaign commercials, my opinion of him has taken another major hit.

Guess Bush's announcement Monday about the release of all prisoners as a good will gesture will have to take a back seat to McCain's critique of conditions of prisoners over the course of the last 5 years. I guess I missed the memo about him opening up an investigation of prisoner treatment">img.fark.com

When you beat people to death it's not very good for your image. Yes, it's also not very good for the people you beat to death, but one thing at a time folks, one thing at a time. We're talking about America, not about who America beats to death.

Wait, you're telling me there's people outside America? And they don't really like us? Hahaha, I love you Farkers, you're so funny.

Also, rush22 ftw.

They don't like what we're doing? Screw em.

They'll be lined up against the wall, right next to the terrorists, once we're through.

As usual, "libs" will try to see this as a negative. Instead, try to understand that by lowering our image now we reduce the potential for lowered esteem in the future.



Just kidding, I doubt there's actually a limit to how low these sick assed "conservatives" can take us.

Interesting part is at the end of TFA: "We obviously don't want to see the ruling House of Saud replaced in Saudi Arabia by extremists, for example, like in Iran after the toppling of the Shah," he said.

"But we need to understand that if no progress in Saudi Arabia is made, the House of Saud will fall sooner or later."


And won't THAT be fun? So if I'm hearing him right, he's pointing out that it's not like we can just leave the crazy bastids alone and everything will be just peachy.

I just wonder if McCain has still got his nose stuck in Dubya's armpit.
/could be in worse places, I guess...

I've always had a soft spot for McCain. Not only did he serve his country, but unlike some commanders in chief I could name, he refused to use family connections to stay out of combat. Even more so because he chose to spend 5 years in a hell hole where he was routinely tortured, rather than cooperate with his captors who wanted to release him as a PR stunt (He refused to leave unless all the Americans were released not just him)


In fact, I used to be a Republican until I saw what W did to Him in SC and started down the road of seeing the Republican party for what it really was. That said, nothing has sickend me more than seeing him cozy up to W, and accept money from the very same people who funded that Smear campaign against him and his son.

Giving him the benefit of the doubt; all I can figure is that he determined that allowing any other Republican to be president in 08 would be an utter diaster for his country. So just as he sacrificed his body for his country at the Hanoi Hilton; he is now sacrificng his honor and doing what is necessary to win the nomination.

It's probably wishful thinking, but perhaps he's using the same qualities that helped him to last 5 years in a prison camp to endure the Bush administration?

This is why he'd have made a better president. Stupid Republicans nominating the wrong guy.

They nominated the "right" guy to get their Iraq plans carried out. I believe McCain wouldn't have taken us there and that, to them, wasn't an option.

We did such a horrible job they are begging for us to come back.

Perspective.

Ahh.. this is what I used to like about political threads. Reasoned thinking, honest opinion, no trolling. Good work!

/hopes you're right
