She's at it again. John McCain met with Cindy.
He didn't have to, but he did.
All he got for his time with that nut
was to be called a war monger.

John McCain is a true American Hero.
He has been recognized as such by
many people on both the right and the
left.

Excerpt

'Peace Mom' assails McCain
Calls senator a 'warmonger' after D.C. visit

Billy House
Republic Washington Bureau
Arizona Republic
Sept. 28, 2005

WASHINGTON - Cindy Sheehan, whose 26-day anti-war vigil this summer
outside President Bush's Texas ranch grabbed international attention, met
privately for 20 minutes on Tuesday with Sen. John McCain and afterward
called him "a warmonger."

"He didn't have to have to meet with us, and he did it," the Vacaville, Calif.,
woman said. But she added of McCain, "He is, you know, a warmonger.
And I am not."

McCain, R-Ariz., a potential 2008 presidential candidate who survived 5½
years as a prisoner of war in Vietnam, responded: "She's entitled to her
opinion. We just have fundamental disagreements."

McCain called the meeting "basically a rehash of my views, which I've
articulated many times, and her views which she has articulated many
times."

What did he expect? He was stupid to meet with her.

I'd kind of like to vote for him, but everytime he does something like this I just feel that he must have no common sense.

hardly a scathing condemnation of his character....

i feel both parties have defined their positions, without mud-slinging antics

McCain, unlike most politicians, is a good man. what you see as stupid was probably just his attempt to give the woman a fair shake...look for common ground, that kind of thing.

intentionally or not, she looks stupid and he comes up with a win for the home team....war hero goes to meet with grieving mother, who calls him a war monger, while he simply states that she is entitled to her opinion. nothing vulgar from mccain....if i was on the fence i would be leaning away from her now.

She's past grieving mother status. Her mind is gone.
She reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally needs help. I wish
someone would get it for her.

She obviously never read his book 'Faith of our Fathers'. Amazing!
Everyone going into the service should be required to read it and
write a book report before signing up. The sacrifices John McCain
made for this country are incredible. He understands the horrors
of war and the evils that mankind can call down on each other.
He definately is not a war monger. Of all the people who are
eyeing the White House in 2008, he is the one person who knows
best why NOT to go to war and he's the one who would probably
do his best to NOT go if at all possible - while still maintaining America's
security.

John McCain has 7 children. His youngest is adopted from
Mother Teresa's orphanage in India. I have high hopes that
he'll run. Considering that he has an adopted child I feel that
he will understand the red tape and costs that interfere with
Americans adopting and perhaps he'll cut through it at the
White House level.

Cindy Sheehan, an alleged grieving mother on a quest or simply a anti-war pawn?




Some will say that McCain got what he deserved.
Others will note the irony of a woman who asserts that a former POW and vet would ever be deemed a warmonger.
Go figure....

Considering the fact that he was a POW in Vietnam for 5 years, he's about the last person you should call a warmonger. Just out of principle he deserves more respect than what Cindy gave him. Honestly, I think that Cindy was quite rude in calling him a warmonger after he actually went and took the time to meet with her.

McCain is one of the few people in politics who understands what goes on. An adopted child, a bout with skin cancer I believe, 5 years POW, exbidition to Norway (global warming), he's one of the few politicians who has gone out and gotten the nasty side of a lot of issues. Chances are if he wins the primarys I'll vote for him in '08. Thats right, I'll be old enough to vote in 2008.

When pressed about what was the noble cause of fighting in Iraq, Sheehan said McCain replied, "Freedom and democracy."


I think that statement made her go balistic.

This is probably a huge political gift to McCain. Really, they disagree so she calls a Vietnam POW a warmonger. He simply acknowledges that they disagree. I see this as a huge political advantage for McCain and the Republican party in general.

Thats quite possibly the best way to win a debate and gain respect, by not resorting to name calling. Politics and ATS have at least that much in common.

Even though I don't agree at all with the war, even though he told her we were there for freedom which I also disagree with, I would never disrespect a vet. We all have our own views but we all should respect our war heros

She disagrees with his views on the war and said so, here is the definition of warmonger, how is that disrespecting him?

Defintion of warmonger

dictionary.reference.com...
warmonger

n : a person who advocates war or warlike policies [syn: militarist]

The term "warmonger" has negative connotations in modern American english.

The term "hawk" or "war hawk" has the same meaning, yet does not have the same negative image. Any term attached to "monger" typically implies low quality or low intelligence.

Using Goose's logic, I suppose George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, FDR, and John Kennedy were all war mongers too.....

from your link:

"One who advocates or attempts to stir up war."

That's also how I understand it, as I'm sure it's how she meant it.

I would think that being a POW for 5 1/2 years would make a person very reluctant to stir up a war. It's also a very cheap shot considering his history.

I gave you the textbook definition of warmonger, whether the word has a negative connotation or not is more or less left to ones perception.

I don't know if being a POW for 5 1/2 years makes one more or less of a warmonger. If his view is that we should go to war and stay in this war then yes using the textbook definition it would seem he is a warmonger.

McCain continually pushes for the U.S. to remain in Iraq. He wants the war to continue. Calling him a war monger is esssentially correct just not politically correct.

Is she giving Jesse a reach around in that pic above?

I'm against this war, this administration, and the very ideals of GOP itself, but Cindy Sheehan is pretty obviously losing her mind.

She's unstable and her behavior is strange, at best. I can see her burning out in a pretty visual display of madness. Nobody is manipulating her, and nobody is making her do anything.

She's crazy all on her own.

What behavior are you talking about? She is not doing what everyone expects a grieving morther to do and that is, stay home and keep quiet. But that does not make her crazy. Some might say she is taking her grief and channeling it in a more positive way and that is to try and end the war.
