McCain; Petty, Jealous and Dangerously Flawed

John McCain previously in Iraq putting troops at risk for a political stunt.

Ok, it has been a bad week for McCain. The photos and press from the Obama international trip has made him look weak and tired and out of touch. So I guess I am not surprised at his nastiness and sniping attempts to strike back.
ABC News' Mary Bruce reports: Sen. John McCain suggested today that it is fair game to question Sen. Barack Obama's decision not to visit wounded troops at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany during his recent trip to the country.

"If I had been told by the Pentagon that I couldn’t visit those troops, and I was there and wanted to be there, I guarantee you, there would have been a seismic event," McCain told ABC News' George Stephanopoulos in an interview to air Sunday on "This Week".
Also, in a new ad released today, the McCain campaign criticized Obama for canceling his Landstuhl trip while finding time to work out.

"He made time to go to the gym," the ad said, "but cancelled a visit with wounded troops. Seems the Pentagon wouldn't allow him to bring cameras. John McCain is always there for our troops."
Cameras aren't allowed in military hospitals so that had NOTHING to do with it. But the media, filled with McCain BBQ sauce, just buys into it and supports the latest narrative. We need to have Barack's back. He honors the Pentagon's request that he not go... and now he has to deal with this nonsense. Please!

Sure, John McCain is all for the troops. All for them staying in this illegal, immoral war so that GOP friends and cronies can rack up big defense and private contracts. He supports the troops that he put in danger for his photo op. He supports the troops so much he was against the new GI Bill?! I.feel.ill.
