Is John McCain insane?

I’ve very much been a fence-sitter during this year’s presidential election. But lately, John McCain is losing any positive thoughts I might have had about him. Today’s news is just another example of how out of touch he is with the real world.

In an interview with Politico today, McCain could not decisively answer how many homes he and his wife Cindy own. This comes just days after he told Pastor Rick Warren that to qualify as wealthy in America, one must earn $5 million a year. He quickly corrected this statement saying, “I define rich in other ways besides income. Some people are wealthy and rich in their lives and their children and their ability to educate them. Others are poor if they’re billionaires.” To me, his gut instinct shows his true character.

Now, I don’t know about the rest of you, but for me, buying a home will be something that I’ll remember forever, especially if said home is a multi-million dollar house as McCain is reported to own. In fact, he owns at least four houses (The Huffington Post has a video on all of them). I cannot for the life of me figure out why he chooses to carelessly answer questions – this is a presidential election where the other side is out to twist everything you say. And quite honestly, it is just plain irresponsible to not know the number of homes you have purchased. If you can’t keep track of your personal assets, how can we trust the care of the nation to you?

Aside from the topic of what really makes someone rich (material worth versus quality of life), he really chose $5 million as the cutoff? Ummm, I’d even say $1 million is a way too high. Obama, when asked the same question by Politico, responded by saying those making $250,000 and higher are in the top 3 to 4 percent and “doing well.”

If you claim to be on the side of everyday Americans, you need to understand where everyday Americans are. Most people I know would jump at the chance to earn more than $70,000 a year and own a condo – and I’m pretty sure they would be able to keep track of their assets. McCain, McCain, McCain . . . get in touch.

  1. When John McCain hugged George W. Bush he threw his integrity, principles and honor into the toilet and flushed it twice. McCain had more honor as prisoner of war than he has now. Winning is everything to him and he is still fighting Vietnam. Our only hope is that his crazyness will show up during the debates. If “Loserman” was not at his side to correct him he would be lost. I am 74 and I DO NOT want an old 19th century cold-war warrior running USA.


  2. If I had my own blog I’d be posting about my roommate, who is a dog walker, and her run in with John McCain’s mother while picking up a client’s dog in a very upscale condo in DC. Talk about being out of touch. Let’s just say that I don’t want a president who was raised by someone who treats an every day working person as some kind of low class servant.


  3. The Mainstream media and McCain’s handlers have focused on selling Americans on imagery of the “War Hero…Maverick…Naval Aviator” while hiding the disturbing side of McCain, that he is in fact mentally unstable, perhaps suffering from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome), alzheimer’ss or the onset of senility. The evidence is clear upon viewing campaign footage from 2000 and comparing it to 2008. Something is very much off. Keep in mind that McCain was tortured so severely in Vietnam that he tried to commit suicide. Nine out of 10 POW’s who returned from Vietnam were diagnosed with PTSD. This may explain his irrational behavior but it does not explain the MSM ignoring some disturbing realities.

    Perhaps McCain’s “Straight Talk” Campaign of 2000 vs. Bush combined with his hosting Media BBQ’s at his country homes has so endeared him to those in the Corporate Media that they choose to downplay, disregard or rationalize his consistent inability to recall basic facts, put together coherent responses or randomly lashing out in anger and singing strange songs like “Bomb Bomb Iran” to the tune of the Beachboys Barbara Ann. McCain’s manner and style of speaking is very slow and controlled and if you notice he carrries around index cards that he refers to. It has also been noted on the campaign when confronted with questions by voters, he often smiles, ignores them and walks away. Furthermore, despite McCain regularly wearing Navy ballcaps, posing as a TOP GUN ala Tom Cruise, all evidence illustrates that McCain was a terrible pilot, destroyed numerous military aircraft, nearly flunked out of the Naval Academy (graduating 894th out of 899) where he spent more of his time behind a bar stool than studying and preparing to become a proficient pilot. McCain was more enamored with the title and the trappings of being a ‘Naval Aviator’ than preparing to be a proficient one…likewise he has been consumed with becoming President for the better part of 25 years but clearly is unprepared. McCain was unprepared for Vietnam and is admittedly unprepared now. To quote Wesley Clark, “Well, I don’t think riding in a fighter plane and getting shot down is a qualification to be president.” Exactly my point, why does fucking up essentially make one a hero? Perhaps it is because so few of the elite classes serve in the military…usually the lower middle class is sent off to die while folks like Bush, Rove, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz’s sit around and pose as hawks. It is alot easier to be a hawk when the children of other parents are sent off to die. Nevertheless, the record shows that McCain was a marginal pilot at best and his lackof proficiency manning a plane was well established.

    McCain has further stated that “the economy is not my strong suit” and “I need my assistants to log me on to the internet. I have no use for email.” —-Is this the type of Maverick America needs right now…or a crazy old coot and ignorant schmuck who is the TROJAN HORSE of the NEOCON’S in the GOP? Sarah Barracuda Babe Palin serves as the perfect DECOY to distract the media and general public from obvious signs of John McCain’s dementia. Is also the reason why many pro-business forces were to trying to get a stabilizing force and pro business candidate like Mitt Romney on the ticket. The only goal is to beat Obama. For Americans it will be too late when they realize that they have elected an INSANE MAN to be the President. He will get carried through for 4 years while they groom the VP to take over. John McCain is a soul less empty vessel who at this point will say anything, align himself with whomever he needs to, to achieve his life long goal. The GOP is knowingly enabling an unstable/unhealthy man simply because he is an R and likely their best bet against OBAMA. BUT, for the GOP to put forth for President a man who is far from intellectually gifted to be begin with, who has a LOW IQ, little intellectual curiousity who may also in fact have lost his marbles is on some level….well, it ought to be a NATIONAL SCANDAL. McCain was never playing with a full deck and now even more cards are missing. Simply put, if McCain were a product you purchased at the store you would return it for being defective or broken.

    Dr. Larry Hunter (former U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Chief Economist): “The Republican Party is a dead rotting carcass with a few decrepit old leaders stumbling around like zombies in a horror version of ‘Weekend With Bernie,’ handcuffed to a corpse.”

    To quote Michael Douglas one of my favorite actors in one of my favorite movies, “The American President “… whatever your problems, I can assure you (Sen. McCain) is not the least bit interested in solving them. He is only interested is telling you to fear them and telling who to blame for them. That’s his tactic and that’s how you win elections.” McCain’s tactics are carbon copied out of the anti-christ Karl Rove’s playbook (Rove works for McCain). Be afraid, hate everything that isn’t attack mode and vote your fear.” Americans must vote your conscience. Be strong and say enough is enough. Democrats, Independents and Republicans should not reward the GOP with a vote for John McCain. They are perpetrating a fraud on the American people through McCain as a Trojan Horse for the NEOCONS. As many suspect, on the eve of the election in the fall, there will be an event in the United States that rally’s the War Machine and support for Bush & McCain.”
