Because just as with John Kerry, he is a fake.
And your proof that Kerry is a fake is what? The swiftboatfortruth liars? The ones who were proven never to have served on boats with Kerry? The ones
who were proved not to have been present at the actions for which he was awarded the Silver Star?
Oh, looks like that is who you were listening to, 'cause you're waiting for a repeat...
As this goes forth you can expect many former POW's to come out against this idiot.
Which is exactly what won't happen.
For a couple of reasons:
1. Kerry was attacked because he was a Democrat.
Kerry was attacked because he was a Democrat who served.
Kerry was attacked because he was a decorated veteran Democrat facing off against a Republican draft-dodger who was claiming to be stronger on
"National Security". The only way for W to beat Kerry was to call Kerry a liar so loudly you drowned out the truth.
2. McCain is a Republican.
McCain is a Republican who not only flew jets, but who volunteered to do so, who turned up to all his parades and also did it in a warzone. McCain is
a Republican who flew jets in a warzone and was shot down and injured and refused to jump the queue to return home.
Because he refused to jump the queue to return home McCain is permanently crippled.
So, therefore, 1) Let's see you spin that.
and 2) the other guests at the Hanoi Hilton have had years to blacken McCain's name, they could have done it eight years ago. They didn't then,
which means they won't now.
Regardless of the truth or not (absolute crap as we know it is) of this particular "McCain Caused Forrestal Fire" story, you'll be waiting a long,
long time for any USN or USAF POWs to publicly accuse McCain of lying about his service.
But, hey, that's okay. You bought the crap about Kerry and you've bought this bull# about McCain without even checking if there was a warranty or a
cooling-off period. Even after others have debunked it. Good to see you reading a few replies before jumping in and posting...
