Someone that can get tortured for 5 years and not give out any information is a hero. He gave the sacrifice that is just below dying. In my opinion and to many others HE IS A HERO. I almost voted for him. But then he brought in the Bimbo and that was that.

libs don't recognize that kind of heroism...its kind of like the 'all that for a flag/' mentality they specialize in. He's old and should retire and rest up for his future, but at one time he was a real man. As were his father and grandfather before him. Google them, they were heros in WW1 and 2. libs would smear the Dali Lama if it gave them their daily jollies.

Nah. We only smear liars and thieves and manipulators like the GOP. McCain is a hero. And we do recognize that heroism. I said it didn't I? All my family were soldiers from my great Grandfather in WW1. My Grandfather in WW2 my Father in the Korean war. My Brother in Vietnam. I joined in '79 and now I'm retired. And I'm a liberal(OMG!) We were all liberals and we served our country honorably. So stick your generalities up you right wing butt and do some research before you run your piehole. MCCAIN IS A HERO. GOD BLESS HIM AND AMERICA. It's sad how you can slam your own people. No loyalty I tell ya. No Loyalty. Pathetic.

And you were born into in the fetid pustule of fever pitched paranoia.
A place so repellently deranged that I wouldn't slander Conservatism by including you in that inbred horde.
After that auspicious start you have rolled down hill....

And we're all thankful for their service, but did any of them side with obastard like mcshame did?

Do any of them support obastard keeping WWII vets from visiting their memorial, yet letting the illegals use a mall that was supposed to be shut down?

mcshame USED TO BE a hero, now he's just another spineless obastard lemming who no longer deserves to be respected.

Yea right, John McCain was treated as a POW like the Admiral Son that he was by the Vietnamese.

You must be reading the comic book version. But the truth is he was a horrible polit responsible for catastrophe after catastrophe who finally crashed in Vietnam on a mission and was captured.

He suffered originally as all POWs did, and had a server injury to his arm, but when it was found he was the son of Admiral McCain he was given some leeway all prisoners were not privy to receive.

Still being a POW to the Vietnamese is no picnic, but McCain was not subject to the brutality all POWs were.

The Memorials being shut is a direct result of the Tea Bag Republican coming to Washington with the mission to shut down the US Government. Don't be surprised that nothing is open when your representatives came to Congress with the idea to shut down the government to extract failed ideas their Candidate in the Presidential Election of 2012 loss on just 10 Months ago to President Obama.

The Tea Bags and everything they represent in America is officially rejected by the American Electorate. They'll be removed next Nov, so they had better start storing those pay check because there will not be another 2 year run living off the backs of the American citizens for doing nothing and obstructing.
