Oh don't get me wrong, I'm not a McCain supporter by any means. And I am active duty Air Force, and even I agree that military service by no means
qualifies anyone to be President.
I was just stating that it's unfair to judge him using circumstantial evidence. As for the reasons stated, you could reasonably argue that:
1) His documented temper- honestly I haven't heard much of his temper, and I've studied many of the candidates closely
2) His confusion in recent remarks- Everyone, especially tired politicians on the campaign trail, often make confusing statements or mis-understand a
question. It's totally normal, they're human. Senator Obama got some heat when he mistakenly said he visited '57 states' when he meant to say he
visited 47. He was tired from the traveling and it was a slip of the tongue. To err is human.
3) Constant flip-flops- This "flip-flopping" thing is getting out of hand, for both Obama and McCain. Sticking to your guns about a issue you feel
is important, but there is a point when stubborn rigidty when faced with new facts is the mark of a fool.
4)PTSD (Post Tramatic Stress Disorder) typically does not pop up 30 years later.
Again, we don't know what happened to Senator McCain, but it's easy to overanalyze his behavior because he's in the spotlight now. I don't think
there is anything mentally wrong with him at all. Personally, I just don't agree with his views on foreign and domestic policy. I won't vote for
him, but thats not because I think he would be a incabable president.
