From Joe the Plumber’s (Joe Wurzelbacher) website:
Whenever a politician from either side of the aisle, a member of the media, or anyone speaking on any topic involving you, your opinion, or your vote in the matter talks about the subject – they must first run the “McCain Disclaimer;” praising your service to this country.
Lest anyone be seen as insensitive or ungrateful after 40 years of hearing anything you say or do premised with how much you have given – Mr. McCain, let me now say what every conservative has been thinking for a long, long time:
Let me tell you what you have done to this country…
You served almost 6 yrs in a prison camp and now you have sentenced 300 million Americans to a LIFE sentence of Obamacare. I want everyone to remember your name as their 65 year old grandmother lies in bed dying because she is deemed too much of a “risk” to help, ie, she is deemed too expensive.
I also want everyone to remember your name when they can’t find work because you stabbed them in the back and allowed our borders…YOUR borders… to be opened to a flood of Illegal immigrants who have nothing to add to this country and our way of life beyond a lifetime of out of control growth in state and federal entitlement spending, and a guaranteed vote for Democrats for countless generations to come.
And I want everyone to think of you every time they try to have their voices heard, and help make a difference in the electoral process, only to find themselves being ridiculed and shunned by you and your crony “gangs” in Congress. From calling your fellow party members “whacko birds” or “without intelligence”, to your mockery of Americans standing up for fundamental change in Washington, you have proven that you have no respect for the people you swore an oath to protect and defend…against all enemies, foreign and domestic.
I hold you in utter contempt, as do a great many Americans; you have made a mockery of your service to this great nation, getting far more mileage out of our pity than our embrace, and I call on every Veteran to stand against you and stand against your next election campaign. It’s clear that you would stop at nothing to help Obama and his regime, and your actions in recent years have given me, and many like me, no choice but to revoke my respect for you and for your so-called “service” to our country.
Being a veteran of war no longer gives you a pass for being bad for this country. With your express help, liberals have succeeded in destroying much of what made this country great and threaten to ruin the very fabric of America. You’ve enabled and assisted these Marxists and to continue looking back all those many years to what you did in VietNam as an excuse doesn’t cut it anymore.
What have you done for me lately?
Well said Joe. I couldn’t agree more.
A commentator has this to say:
Let’s look at john mccain’s record. . . From his involvement in the “savings and loan” banking scandal to his (questionable) military service, he has been PROVEN to be a total disaster (as well as his traitorous political behavior).
mccain NEVER had the “courage of his convictions” but was a spoiled brat (not unlike the o’bama) who used his “connections” to wreak havoc on this great country.
mccain’s “daddy” was a hotshot Navy admiral that got “young johnny” into Annapolis. “johnny” graduated near the bottom of his class, proceeded to wreck 3 perfectly good aircraft during training, was called “songbird” mccain during his captivity (I wonder why?) and proceeded to use his military career as a political “stepping stone” with disappointing results. . .
Let’s not forget, that in 1999, traitors “songbird” john mccain and “swiftboat” john kerry voted to cut off investigations into VERIFIED LIVE POW sightings in Southeast Asia. (It is not well known that only HALF of our POWs were “returned”, the other half was to be used as “bargaining chips” to push for “war reparations” for North Vietnam. When reparations were not forthcoming, our remaining POWs were given a “life sentence” in Southeast Asia).
The best thing that mccain could do now would be to quit the republican party and retire. . .
As a veteran, I am somewhat ashamed to have POSs like mccain and kerry in my ranks . . .
PS. BrianR will no doubt weigh in on this as his disgust for McAsshat is in the stratosphere.
