    As a prisoner of the North Vietnamese is NOT moving. I realize that being tortured the way that he was would make anyone do anything the torturers wanted, but he ended up making over 40 propaganda tapes for the NVs to broadcast over the air to South Vietnam. He of all people should have been totally against the torturing of Muslim prisoners by our forces and by other countries we sent our prisoners to.

    Be interesting to see if he retains his "prime position" as the go-to guy to criticize anything that Obama does or says after little Chuckie Todd takes over.

    •  He gets a pass on everything (3+ / 0-)

      I've known several former POWs from the Vietnam war and I can't even put into words the respect I feel for anyone who can make it through that kind of ordeal.  But McCain is milking it.  He has gotten a pass on so many things because people feel sorry for him and think they should respect every thing he does no matter how reprehensible because he once suffered so greatly while a POW.

      But remember, despite his bravery and strength to make it through as a POW, he was a crappy midshipman, a crappy pilot, and a crappy officer.  He has also been a crappy congress critter and is evidently a crappy person.  

      Every positive thing he has he has been given either because of his father or his wife.

      Admire anyone being able to stand up to torture for even a little while.  But don't give a free pass for everything else.

      Good riddance of Dancing Dave! Whatever took so long?

      I'm waiting for the footage showing little Chuckie Todd dancing with his masters.

      Chuckie cannot help but see himself as far more important than most others believe. And may he get rid of that hair-on-the-face.
