    I feel bad that Trump trashed her family, the personal critiques were gross.

    I dob’t feel bad that Trump criticized McCain’s political leadership. He trashed people like me for losing against Obama when he refused to criticize him

    I don’t feel bad for The View stuff, she chose to go

    I don’t feel bad for the Arizona stuff, her mom is the problem, thinking she was entitled to be a king maker because her husband held the seat.

    You can’t get anybody to explain in plain English how John McCain moved the ball forward for conservatives or libertarians. I’ve been doing this for years on the Internet and it’s the same thing every time: word salad.

    Military spending

    His only value in political discourse was the love affair the Left had with him as a guy who didn’t Republicans, and the one side only narratives that resulted from McCain-Feingold

    also I think he was guilty in the Keating scandal and sold the others out to save himself but that’s a different hill.

    I never understood John McCain.

    His military record would suggest – if not demand – that he would be careful thoughtful and cautious with military engagements. Yet he was almost reckless with his support for military campaigns. I dont think there was a single military campaign in his political career that he was fully on board for – if not cheer leading and actively campaigning for.

    I didnt like how McCain ran for president in 2008. Granted he was never going to beat Obama. Obama was the democrat’s Trump. In that Obama excited parts of the democrat base that rarely or never votes. That had limited to no civic education or participation. Also this should have been a huge wake up call to the useful republicans. John McCain was the media darling, the most respected and cherished republican senator. Until he ran against a democrat that mattered to them. Then then his media coverage changed on a dime.

    I dont know why anyone would be surprised by the way a republican would be treated in a democrat media. Its been going on for decades. If your inside the democrat approved narrative you’re treated (mostly) decently, but if you’re an outsider, you’re de-humanized, threatened, bullied and treated in ways that would get anyone fired if they treated an insider like that. I do feel sorry for Megan McCain for her experiences on the View, nobody should be treated like that.

    I think not. He was as responsible as anyone for killing the arsenal ship, leading to our current vulnerability to missile attacks. He single handedly delayed the new generation of airborne tankers by decades. He never saw an overpriced and underperforming weapon system he couldn’t profit from with all his heart.

    Look elsewhere for his virtues.
