McCain: "gravitas" to spare

I have just finished a post about Obama lacking gravitas and I want to mention that while I disagree with Mr. McCain on an issue here and there, I cannot take away from him his Navy fighter pilot status or his status as a prisoner of war for five years courtesy of the North Vietnamese. If you want to see what those two things mean - just the surface of those two things, see the movie, Top Gun, with Tom Cruise and read about the Pueblo Incident that happened on January 23, 1968 when the USS Pueblo was taken by the North Koreans. Get the book. Read it if you can get through the suffering and torment of our men and see the pictures. One of the officers totally lost his mind due to the brutality of his tormentors. Other men and officers were beaten and tortured beyond comprehension. No training in the world can prepare them for the horrors they endured at the hands of the North Koreans. Just a note - there is a lady who comes on the Bill O'Reilly Show and does a segment on "body language." Recently, in good faith, she mentioned that John McCain did use jerky, robotic movements with his arms sometimes and this was distracting... Well, for the "politically sensitive", that's what can happen when one has had one's arms broken multiple times in a North Vietnamese POW camp, the Hanoi Hilton. Yes, McCain has the gravitas and he has the broken bones to prove it. You don't have to agree with him but he won't leave your son or daughter on the field of battle; he just has to decide to ditch his sychophant poodle from SC, and fight for the Presidency of the United States. Whoever walks into the Oval Office on January 20th will be tested. Our nation is under attack and has been from Islamic jihadists since the debacles of Jimmy Carter's days - Thanks for the memories, Jimmy: for Iran, for the Panama Canal, etc. In the fight we're in, I'd want McCain on my side. In the fight the Islamic terrorists and their mullahs have brought to us, we cannot afford to relent or to dismiss their efforts as "criminal acts". We need a scrapper in the White House; now is not the time for a smooth talker; we need a man who is a "maverick" and who will put his nation and our children first and who will stand up to tyranny!

Watch Dog, thank you and good news on that homefront. Yes, very familiar with the Vietnam era.

Slow and steady wins the race! I agree with you BUT we can hammer him even if he wins the White House; we can't hammer the other guy and the arrogance will kill us if the taxes don't.

Some folks say we should "give" the White House to Obama to ensure that the Democrats have plenty of opportunity to fail big but I say there is too much at stake right now to take the risk. We need to engage and show that a black man can run for the presidency and - mercy - he can be defeated too cause, well, his policies are bad, bad, bad marching us to Socialism and weakness.

Thank you for your great note, by the way. Just leave notes any time - works better for me this way instead of e-mail. Thanks...and an Ooh-rah! to your "friend"...thank her for her service...

Many years ago the voices of Islam told us that they will take over the world! And they gave us a time table. They said that they would dominate Europe by 2015 and the U.S. by 2025. Their date for Europe actually looks to be about right. National governments all over Europe, including Great Britain, are appeasing them on a regular basis. The next President has to be willing to fight terrorism, or we will be Islamic by 2025!

I too hear the argument that having Obama in the White House when everything goes south is good for Conservatives. That might be true if we were not endanger of GREAT loses in those four years. Chances are that the next President will name perhaps 5 Supreme Court Judges. That would be an extremely dangerous situation. Take the case of the DC Gun Ban. The minority did not disagree with the courts interpretation of the Second Amendment, they wanted to just stripe it from the Constitution because they see it as obsolete. We are currently 1/2 a judge away from the total destruction of our governing document. Kennedy goes either way depending on his mood! We have seen the damage that he can cause.

If we end up with 5 or more activist judges on the court--nothing else will matter. We could conceivably end up with a court run dictatorship.

Obama will get National Healthcare enacted. He is going to decimate the Military. They will nationalize many industries. They will use their false God, Global Warming to take over nearly every facet of our lives

Most American's aren't willing to accept what could happen. But the Liberal's have been building to a takeover for a very long time.

Watch Dog, I couldn't get to your blog???? Have you read the Islamic Twenty Year Plan to take over America? It is linked in my sidebar.

Must take a break. I have been trying to catch up and that is hard to do. BG..
