Either Or

At a McCain 'rally' yesterday during the inflammatory speech grandpa made, in response to what he says you can hear from the crowd what sounds like either, "terrorist," or "kill him." I listened several times and can't be sure which it is, but regardless, McCain heard it as you can tell from his immediate reaction, and yet does or says nothing. Is that leadership? Come on. Really. Ask yourself, is it? Certainly McCain is not responsible for what others say or do but if he knows of it he has the responsibility to say something. Think about it. This is not the way to act "presidential."


Note to regular readers:I have recently joined some milblogs as a reader commenter and am posting regularly a some military message boards. I find myself currently on a mission to change minds and am writing not with the choir in mind.

I don't think McCain realizes who his own supporters are...

The McCain I knew is not the McCain I see today, so I ask...

Who is the REAL John McCain?

Good question Alberto, I'm not sure McCain knows the answer. His rallies have turned into lynch mobs. His and Palin's speeches now closely resemble the propaganda of 1930's Europe. My only solace comes from Obama's lead in the polls.

The man is much like Bush Jr. - a privileged brat - and has demonstrated nothing but cowardice all his life. He has a wish bone where his backbone should have been.

You're a milblogger? Don't be offended, I didn't figure you to be. Sorry, but I've read these milblogs and they weren't MY cup of te (I'm just left of center), so I definitely didn't figure they were yours (since you seem just a smidge further to the left).

No TG, not a Milblogger, just, "...reading and commenting at milblogs lately..."

And yes, I'm a "smidge" further to the left of you ;)
