Thanks for your wise words. He is lucky the military don’t turn their backs on him!Had he picked anyone other than Sarah Palin as his running mate, I would have immediately jumped ship and voted for him. I did admire him so much, especially for standing up to those people who still held the belief that Obama was not a "real" American. The man had chutzpah and when needed, had a set of cajones which allowed him to go toe to toe with anyone, including the whiner Mitch McConnell.
That the bone spurred, draft dodging Herr Gropenfurher would challenge McCain's bravery because, "I like heroes who don't get caught," was beyond insulting and every military person in the Armed Forces of America should never vote for Trump again.
...and genuine as a human being, citizen, husband and father!I took this of McCain 2008 in South Carolina. See he is wearing the SC flag pin.
RIP, John McCain a true American hero.
Bart,I think Britain's PM Theresa May said it very well:
"John McCain was a great statesman, who embedded the idea of service over self".
I did not agree with everything he said, but I respected his devotion.
He will be missed.
