Getting shot down doesn't make you hero. Bravery in combat does. There's a difference.

Your doubts were well justified. Backed by millions of female voters across the country. Even the McCain team soon realized what a blunder they had made in selecting "Mama Grizzly".

McCain was independent for about one year after Bush took office. Likely a consequence of anger at the way the Bush team ran its campaign against him during the South Carolina primaries in 2000. Then he kow-towed faithfully the rest of Bush's two terms.
Given all the corruption in Washington, a true Maverick would be welcome. Unfortunately, McCain has really been an insider most of his career. Part of the problem, not the solution.
As for your inference that CEO qualities make good presidents, I suggest you take a lesson from both GW Bush and Herbert Hoover. Furthermore, it's not the role of government to produce a profit.

Which explains his ability to head off the worst economic disaster since the Great Depresson. Banks saved. General Motors and AIG bailed out. Unemployment halted at 10%. Now down to 8%.
Are you sure you're an "independent"?

If you're not a brave person, you'll never become a Naval aviator. Try landing aboard an aircraft carrier at night in bad weather.
The Navy did a study of stress for its pilots. It found that the most stressful condition wasn't combat. It was landing on an aircraft carrier.
Now, let's talk about being a prisoner of war and being tortured, and being brave enough to stand up to that for about a decade.
You should stick to something you know something about when you talk out the hole in your ass, idiot.

Let's see...
Sarah Palin, high school beauty queen, actually got a degree from a university and wasn't a drop-out hanger-on like Obama's mother, married her high school boyfriend, raised a family while having a career, became governor of her state while taking care of her family, was nominated to be Vice President while taking care of her family... yup, kind of blows a hole in the keel of this "can't have a career and a family" bullshit, doesn't it? She picked a good man. That's the difference. The person she picked didn't knock her up and hit the bricks, like Obama's father did.

Politics is a ruthless game. Just ask the Democrats that plan these October surprises and have them blow up in their faces.

The economy collapsed because of the Democrats' Marxist subprime housing mortgage underwriting program, which when the Republicans gave the Democrats no effective oversight of it, the Democrats supported Bush and the war in Iraq... for a while.
The economy collapsed after 2 years of oversight by the Democrats.

You are a dupe... and not a very intelligent dupe at that.

Not to worry Carol. Voter apathy is going to kill Obama. He got out the vote last time, but it won't repeat. Many of the poor and young crowd may still support him, but will not show up to vote. His appeal is nowhere near 2008. My bet is that even the black panthers will not man the poles to intimidate this time around. Homer not withstanding of course.

Well, that explains the video of two "new" black panthers brandishing weapons in front of a polling place in Philadelphia.
Kind of like the video from Benghazi proves everyone in the administration is a liar, starting with Obama.

When President Obama took office, our country faced the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression (thanks to George Bush.) Millions of jobs had been lost. Since then, we have had 31 straight months of private sector job growth ... despite the opposition by the Republican Congress. Obama saved the auto industry and millions of jobs. American manufacturing is adding jobs for the first time since the 1990s. Middle class families have seen their taxes cut and tax rates are the lowest in years. Mitt Romney's "plan" is the same one that got our country in trouble more tax cuts for the wealthy and fewer rules for Wall Street. Who do you think wins from this plan? Yet, Romney wants us to trust him. He says, "I know how to create jobs trust me." Remember, his former Bain Capital employees, tens of thousands now jobless, trusted him.

Bush signed The American Dream Act.
GOP failed to reign in bad loans when it was the majority party and could have done something.
GOP guilty. Case closed.
Let's see....
American Dream Act signed in 2003.
Democrats support the war in Iraq in 2003.
Here's the Democrats negotiating for no effective oversight of their Marxist subprime housing mortgage underwriting program... in 2003.

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1222905743912...

The Democrats took control of all oversight of the financial institutions that collapsed our economy. After 2 years of Democrat oversight, the economy collapsed.

Let's go over that again:
The Democrats trade support for the war in Iraq for no effective oversight of their Marxist subprime housing loan program, then they get complete oversight of the program, and 2 years after Democrat oversight the Democrats' Marxist subprime loan program collapses the economy.

That's why Massachusetts doesn't like him. You would think all that talk about what he did there, they would vote for him. I think they know the true Romney.

I can sum up Romney in two words.
Bain Capital.
I can do it in one word:

Capitalist.

You know, the ideology that brought the world out of the relative stone age it was in before the United States became the most significant influence in the world.
It was diametrically opposed to Marxism, the ideology that produced the 3 worst mass murderers in the history of civilization:
Stalin (low estimate 10 million murdered) about 5 to 7 percent of the population under his control.
Mao Tse Dong (high estimate 60 million people murdered) about 7 percent of the population under his control, and more people murdered than were killed in World War II cumulatively around the world.
Ho Chi Minh (median estimate 3.5 million people murdered) about 12.5 percent of the population under his control outside of North Vietnam murdered. Statistically the worst mass murderer in the history of civilization.

And, coming in at number FOUR is Hitler (high estimate 10 million people murdered not involved in combat actions).

The imposition of Marxist communism killed more people than all the wars of the previous century around the world combined. The top three mass murderers in the history of civilization used Marxist communism to imprison and enslave their respective populations so they could commit mass murder on such a large scale.

And, you guessed it, Obama is a Marxist communist. He left a trail of Marxist communist associations Inspector Clousseau could follow.
