Hey, Flyers, I have the greatest respect for John McCain and what he went through as a POW in Viet Nam, especially since I am also a former Navy man &
a Viet Nam Vet. That being said, though, it doesn't mean that he is automatically the best man to be President of the U.S. or Commander-in-Chief.
What upsets me so much about McCain is that he has totally reversed his previous stands on Foreign Policy and other issues and instead of distancing
himself from the rhetoric and mistakes of the current administration, seems to be embracing and promoting them. Why he is continuing to do this, in
spite of the fact that the American public has made it clear that these failed ways of doing things must come to an end, truly mystify and trouble me.
Also, his age and health are a factor, although, I wish they weren't.
Another thing that bothers me about McCain is his lack of warmth and humanity; I just don't feel comfortable listening to him speak. He frequently
seems distracted or slightly confused and has misspoke himself a few times in the past and then had to correct his comments, which causes me to also
doubt his sincerity and honesty as to what he really believes. I just never feel I know, concretely, whether McCain is saying what he really believes
or what he thinks people want to hear, or just what he needs to do and say to get elected.
