I’m treading here not to be smearing any one or attacking anyone’s family.
But being there has been so much to come out on Obama’s wife as to a written opinion which I would say not out of line for one finding their new freedoms & shading old beliefs. Where if this is going to be brought into the light & this some how has a bearing on this election than the playing field should be leveled.
Mc Cain’s second wife Cindy, the daughter of a wealthy Budweiser beer distributor, was addicted to prescription narcotics & even stole hard drugs from a medical charity that she ran. Not that I do not understand that there are people every day who become addicted to prescription narcotics through no fault of their own. But the part where she stole hard drugs from a medical charity that she ran. Do not actions speak louder than words?
Case in point not all facts put out.
http://www.johnmccain.com/About/Cindy.htm...
Based on new ad to come out by McCain he says he loves America and willing to fight for his country. Being a retired Gulf war vet can under stand this position. But a few facts play into this that concern me & should you. John McCain's temper is well documented. He's called opponents and colleagues "&hitheads," "a**holes" and in at least one case "a &ucking jerk." In several articles to come out this info was brought forth.
3 reporters from Arizona, on the condition of anonymity, also let me in on another incident involving McCain's intemperateness. In his 1992 Senate bid, McCain was joined on the campaign trail by his wife, Cindy, as well as campaign aide Doug Cole & consultant Wes Gullett. At one point, Cindy playfully twirled McCain's hair & said, "You're getting a little thin up there." McCain's face reddened, & he responded, "At least I don't plaster on the makeup like a trollop, you #unt." McCain's excuse was that it had been a long day. If elected president of the United States, McCain would have many long days. This has been evident through out his years. The man who was known as "McNasty" in high school has erupted in foul-language tirades at political foes & congressional colleague’s more-or-less throughout his career, & his quickness to anger has been an issue on the presidential campaign trail as evidence of his fury has surfaced.
This is the same one declaring Obama that not having served in uniform is not qualified to be ably to handle foreign affairs. Handling pressure when having the control over if a nation goes to war and not losing their self control is important. When it’s the lives of vets in the balance that will be sent to defend the freedoms & rights of the people. The same ones being beaten with them now. This same quickness to anger not be as quick to involve this nation in another war not based on all the facts, you no the truth.
Being Vietnam veteran & former prisoner of war for 5 years in North Vietnam.
Is McCain following after Bush, violating the War Crimes Act when they allowed interrogators to use brutal interrogation methods against detainees. Torture is Torture

Just as history can show links of cultures bringing clear the role each one played in our history through out the world. Events can go to describe the make up & character about a man, his strengths & weakness’ his values.
If this being true than this nation made up of all colors creeds beliefs & values need to look beyond the top layers of surface information & look to its base of facts and events the have shaped the man. One applying to the highest position to lead our country to be held to the highest levels of trust, devotion, control in all aspects even as it extends to their relationships professional and personal.
With this being said I will continue to present the information of facts to which I hope brings into focus a more clear & detail picture.
Character is not something that can be taught. But something that’s developed as one goes through life. It’s the sum of people they come in contact with as well as events that shape their beliefs. Good & bad.
Building on the simple values of these contacts but more important is what they learn from them. For it seems at the present the last few administrations have not learned or try to go in different direction.
With oil prices hitting new highs, gas at $4 dollars or higher in some locations along with the growing cost of food & medicines home mortgage foreclosures continued to send shock waves through the already wobbly economic system.
Couple this with the latest unemployment rate which has shot up to 5.5 percent in May, the biggest one-month jump in decades. So far this year, 324,000 people have lost their jobs.
Shows the importance of going beyond the top layers of surface information.
I’ve already touched on the issue of control and would like to share my views on devotion. To start no one questions McCain’s being in service as well as P.O.W but what he learned from this experience is very much in question.
This statement it would seem is worth noting. In the WASHINGTON en. John McCain, who pushed the White House to support a ban on torture, suggested Sunday that harsh treatment of a terrorism suspect who knew of an imminent attack would not violate international standards. The Arizona Republican said legislation before Congress would establish in U.S. law the international standard banning any treatment of prisoners that "shocks the conscience." That would include, McCain said, mock executions and "water boarding," in which a subject is made to think he is drowning. My question here is what makes his treatment as P.O.W wrong to what he’s claiming as ok for this country to do?

They say it is legal and did not constitute torture. Bush made comment " that questioning the detainees in this program has given us the information that has saved innocent lives by helping us stop new attacks here in the United States & across the world," Bush said in a speech in September 2006. These views that McCain has aligned himself with goes against the whole foundation on which this nation was built on and vets have given their lives to defend. The rights and freedoms of all. You don’t up hold the law of the land by breaking it. This brings into play to areas of devotion one in which he’s disregarding the others who went through torture with him and those in which endured his captivity on the home front.

As this position extends to his professional relationships other than anger. There are also 2 points. One being trying to distance himself from Bush yet aligning with his polices & the gain of donations that Bush is raising on his behalf the other being in 1995, McCain sent birthday regards, and regrets for not attending, to Joseph "Joe Bananas" Bonano, the head of the New York Bonano crime family, who had retired to Arizona. Another politician to send regrets was Governor Fife Symington, who has since been kicked out of office and convicted of 7 felonies relating to fraud and extortion. For the benefit of those who made not be familiar with him here’s a link. http://www.ganglandnews.com/column280.htm
Another link here maybe to a pre-posting.

With the latest books to come out. One being from Former White House press secretary Scott McClellan writes in a surprisingly scathing memoir to be published next week that President Bush "veered terribly off course," was not "open and forthright on Iraq," and took a "permanent campaign approach" to governing at the expense of candor and competence.

And that of The Real McCain by Cliff Schecter portraits a whole different image than what be presented.
Giving him the benefit of the doubt here leaves not to many options which one could follow. Which governs his thinking and actions?
I close this posting with this link & this thought to this remark made by Bush.
http://www.topix.com/forum/city/colorado-spri...

President Bush this morning acknowledged that "a lot of Americans are concerned about the economy.
"I can understand why," he said. "Gasoline prices are high. Energy prices are high. I do remind them that we have put a stimulus package forward that is expected to help boost the economy. Of course, we'll be monitoring the situation."
The stimulus package must be working I was very stimulated after I had to pay 54 dollars to fill up my truck with gas to go to the bank to cash the check. I hope he was monitoring the situation." I gave.
Up date on subject of interest.
