    The heir apparent to the throne on 1600 Penn ave is bowing to the big interest donors of the RNC and flip flopped big time on supporting torture.. if he had stood his ground and voted against it, would have showed a modicum of testicular fortitude, however he did not and only becomes a right wing sheeple.

    I admire his service and cannot imagine being a pow for the length of time he did, but his association with lobbyists and now this bend over to the republican right makes me think of him much different than I had in the past. Never mind how he was criticized by the Rove/Bush machine in '00.

    Why the KKK moniker, what make him a white supremist in you view?

    Are you saying he was a member of the KKK like Robert Byrd?

    What flip flop? He didn't endorse waterboarding, he said the Veto was justified because techniques were banned that he didn;t feel were torture.


    McCain isn't a very good candidate but at least try to come up with something besides DNC spin.

    It is not DNC spin, it is my spin as I am concerned about this tortured POW who has always been against torture is now pandering to the right as the election nears.. I used to like McCain and always thought he would have been a good prez, however after George and Karl beat him up in '00, then his relationships with lobbyists and now this make me think he willnot be a good executive.
