John McCain is a gutless, God damned idiot

We live in Arizona. We have never voted for John McCain, other than voting against Barack Obama in 2008, but make no mistake we required a nose clip, tetanus shots, and a significant quantity of cheap alcohol to perform the act. We used the cheap stuff because we’re not wasting 21 year old scotch on the likes of a worthless SOB like McCain.

That brings us to John Kerry.

In a spirit of full disclosure, John Kerry committed treason in 1973 when, as a US Naval Reserve Officer, he gave aid and comfort to the North Vietnamese in Paris. His worthless, treasonous, cowardly ass was bailed out by Jimmy Carter when Carter ordered a review of “less than honorable” discharges and Kerry was basically pardoned and his discharge was upgraded.

Do I have the facts to prove that? No. But why else would we be still waiting for Kerry to release his full military records as he promised to do in 2004?

He’s one of the few US Senators who is more distasteful than John McCain and if some future President wants to set things right for a generation of US servicemen who served honorably in Vietnam and were sold out first by their government and then by our current Secretary of State, we have a new rope in the garage we’ll donate to hang the SOB.

Back to Kerry and McCain.

Barack Obama nominated John Kerry to serve as Secretary of State after he decided his first choice, the disgusting and despicable, anti-Semite Susan Rice would have to answer too many embarrassing questions about Benghazi in a confirmation hearing.

Did Senator McCain ask Kerry about the whereabouts of his military records and why he hadn’t bothered to keep his word and release them? No, he didn’t.

Did Senator McCain ask Kerry about his support of Daniel Ortega when he was working with Ted Kennedy to undermine Ronald Reagan? No, he didn’t.

Did Senator McCain ask Kerry why, after reviewing all the intelligence information related to Iraq in the run-up to the vote to go to war, why he supported the Use of Force resolution and as soon as we had troops in harm’s way he changed his mind (such as it is) and actively worked to undercut our military effort and stab George W. Bush in the back? Well, no, he didn’t.

McCain simply pandered to his Senate buddy and voted to approve the treasonous SOB as Secretary of State.

And now, after completely abdicating his responsibility as a US Senator to advise and consent on cabinet nominations – McCain offered no advise and simply bent over and consented – we get this crap, first on Syria

When it comes to foreign policy, the Obama administration is really mucking things up.

At least that is how Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., sees it.

For a guy who went head-to-head against Obama in the 2008 presidential election, it’s been tough to sit back and watch the president bungle diplomatic relations in his second term.

From Egypt to Iran, McCain singled out Secretary of State John Kerry, the former Massachusetts senator with whom he served, as the major liability.

“This guy has been a human wrecking ball,” McCain said during the Atlantic Ideas Forum.

And, recalling that one should never stand between John McCain and a camera, we get this crap on Iran…

“No break has been put on [the Iranians acquiring a nuclear weapon] in this interim agreement, so there is no trust here.

I was not only not persuaded, I came out, uhhh, many of the statements that the Secretary of State made as facts, I know are factually false…”

So Senator McCain, in closing, you’re willing to get some nice camera time calling John Kerry a liar. Are you planning on using your standing Sunday Morning Talking Heads time to expand that to the President? After all, Mr. Obama is parroting the same lies.

Are you going block this stupidity and push for an immediate increase in sanctions, after all you’re being lied to by the Secretary of State and the President?

Or, are you just going to go along and be a good Senator as you always do when playing with the Democrats?

That, friends, is a rhetorical question.

    “Do I have the facts to prove that? No”

    That’s kind of like a motto with you. You should include that disclaimer in all your articles.

    • Sky__Captain

      That disclaimer also should preface your posts as well, Bruce.

      • http://wizbangblog.com/author/rodney-graves/ Rodney G. Graves

        It should be tatooed on his forehead…

    • iwogisdead

      You just don’t get anything, do you, Bruce.

    • M_Becker

      I don’t have his military records which would deliver the facts. Unlike GWB, Kerry never saw fit to release them, even though he repeatedly promised to.

      Of things about which there are no question, Kerry left the service shortly after his little trip to Paris, and he left in timing that was not in like with a retirement. He did not resign.

      As a civilian, Kerry applied to and attended BC Law School. He, unlike his well heeled contemporaries, did not apply to Harvard or Yale, his alma mater. Both Harvard and Yale required a DD214 showing “Honorable” discharge for veterans in order to be admitted. BC did not require a DD214.

      Carter convened his tribunal to deal with service members who were separated with less than honorable discharges after Kerry finished at BC. His DD214 and his the dates on is awards all have the same date which is contemporaneous with the timing for Carter’s tribunals. There is no other reason why all those documents would have the same date.

      Very strong circumstantial evidence, Bruce. Probably good enough for conviction in just about any jurisdiction.

      You can’t even produce a scintilla of weak evidence that it’s not factual.

      • Brucehenry

        Well then why did you say you DIDN’T have the facts, since you apparently do?

        EDIT: Hey wait a minute! Conviction for what? Would his military records convict him of “treason,” as you allege? Nope. So, no, I was correct and so were you: You don’t have the facts to prove treason. Matter of fact that’s more over-the-top opinion, not fact.

        • M_Becker

          Bruce, you’re an insufferable idiot.

          Since you’re a child of the Left you obviously have no clue what a “fact” is. A fact is something that you can back up with “hard evidence”, like a military record. The facts in evidence with respect to Kerry are: he went to Paris and he was a NR officer; he consorted with the enemy, the North Vietnamese; he left the service under suspicious circumstances that have never been publicly documented; his DD214 and his awards all have the same date and that is very unusual. Without his military records, complete and unredacted, we cannot draw a factual conclusion, merely a conclusion based on strong circumstantial evidence.

          With respect to my use of the word “conviction” I was simply drawing an analogy to a typical criminal case that requires “beyond a reasonable doubt” for a conviction. Most criminal cases are determined on the basis of circumstantial evidence.

          A treason conviction would have nothing to do with his military records beyond using them to prove that he was, indeed, an active member of the US Naval Reserve and an officer at the time he went to Paris to meet with the North Vietnamese. Any evidence in a treason trial would be outside of that documentation and since the standard is “aid and comfort to the enemy” a rather wide sweep could potentially be made for that evidence.

          It’s not at all an “over-the-top opinion. It’s certainly an opinion and I’ve never couched it as anything but my opinion, but it is certainly backed by circumstantial evidence and could be backed – or refuted – by release of his records.

          We could determine if his separation from the service was related to his trip to Paris, if he was charged under the UCMJ, what type of preceding if he was charged, the evidence presented at the preceding, and the determination of the presiding officer/s.

            No sense replying since you’re gonna hide my comments in this bogus “awaiting moderation” zone.

            I have no control over that Bruce. Feel free to sulk.

          • Brucehenry

            And no influence, either, I assume. Right.

            Frankly I didn’t know moderation was on.

            And, you’ve managed to instantly hit “more insufferable than Brucehenry” in two posts. You should be married to Bruce.

        • Wild_Willie

          It amazes me that Kerry has supporters that actually believe him. I guess you can’t fix stupid. ww

  • Retired military

    McCain must be planning on running again so he is trying to show is conservative cred (bahahahhahahahahhahahahahhahahahha)

  • Retired military

    ” I’ll take Obama, Kerry or Hillary”
    You just named about the only 3 people who are worse than McCain.

    • Idahoser

      nope, McCain is worse.

    Michael,

    Please don’t share videos that autoplay.

    • M_Becker

      Sorry about that.

  • Commander_Chico

    Rich. Non-veteran complains about McCain not being enough of a warmonger.

    McCain may have become a deranged warmonger in his old age, but he’s combat-proven not to be gutless.

    The cry of the chickenhawk is heard throughout the land again. All of the clowns who brought us the Iraq war, like Kristol, want to stop talking to Iran and start another war.

    • Wild_Willie

      I served and totally agree with the post. So there chico, deal with it. ww

    • Jwb10001

      Hey speaking of Chickenhawks did you see that your hero and lead chickenhawk Obama has droned a wedding procession killing 15 in Yemen? Oops, Nobel Prize winning chickenhawk in cheif strikes again. Good thing you didn’t vote for that warmonger McCain back in 2008 he might have done something terrible.

      • Commander_Chico

        Are you suggesting American actions killing innocent Muslims might be causing hate and discontent? Well, that’s progress.

        • jim_m

          But muslims killing innocent Americans is just fine in Chico’s book and is in fact a reason for Americans engaging in self loathing criticism of their culture and way of life.

          And even above he is still unwilling to criticize obama for the very thing that he actively looks for opportunities to criticize conservatives for. Apparently, the only people that can be chicken hawks are conservatives and fascist lefties who have actively avoided service can never be referred to by that term.

          • Commander_Chico

            It’s not fine for Muslims to kill innocent Americans. We kill innocent Muslims at a much higher rate, must be at least 100:1

          • jim_m

            I think we kill muslims in an active war zone and in general do not target innocents deliberately, whereas muslims almost exclusively target innocents outside of combat zones. There is a difference even if an anti-American jerk like you refuses to admit that fact.

          • Commander_Chico

            Yeah, like bombing wedding parties in places we are not at war with, as jwb10001 pointed out.

          • jim_m

            Show me where the majority of muslim violence is targeted against military targets. It isn’t. You just hate the US and our culture. Period. You are a parasite that wants government benefits so you can denounce the government that pays them to you.

          • Commander_Chico

            That might be the most disjointed and incoherent thing you’ve written. And wipe the foam off of your mouth.

          • jim_m

            I will note that you do not object to being characterized as “a parasite that wants government benefits so you can denounce the government that pays them to you”.

            Now we know that you admit to this.

          • Oldflyer

            Chico, Chico. I doubt that any self-respecting Conservative, much less a serving military person or veteran, would defend Obama’s war policies. Or fake war policies for that matter.

            By the way, I asked you long time ago in another forum, just what justifies your use of the title Commander. I don’t think you ever answered.

            ERG, Captain, USN ret

          • Commander_Chico

            I don’t recall you on another forum, what was it, but I’m a retired USNR-R CDR and ex-1115.

        • Jwb10001

          I’m suggesting your hero the Nobel Prize Winning Chickenhawk in Chief like you is a hypocrite. Conservatives fall into 2 categories with you, if they served in the military they are war mongers if they didn’t they are chickenhawks. You seem most reluctant to label liberals with the same venom you reserve for conservatives. So my suggestion is that you’re a tool, not a very sharp tool but a tool none the less. As far as the point you’re trying to make, please tell me when we authorized military action in Yemen, you know like we did in Iraq and Afgan.

          • Commander_Chico

            How about this: you are absolutely right about Obama’s malfeasance.

            I have been thinking that this Syria thing in particular is a horrendous debacle.

          • http://wizbangblog.com/author/rodney-graves/ Rodney G. Graves

            Go away, racist.

  • Lawrence Westlake

    It takes a special talent – and by “special” I mean in the retarded sense – to live long-term in Arizona, to be a self-proclaimed conservative, to be well into middle-age and never except for the ’08 presidential election to have voted for McCain. Ipso facto that would mean, Sparky, that you’ve de facto cast ballots for all of the foregoing characters: Richard Kimball (a Democrat political hack; despite McCain at that time being one of Reagan’s people on the Hill and having been endorsed for that seat by Barry Goldwater), Claire Sargent (a farce of a liberal), Ed Ranger (an environmental activist), Stuart Starkey (in an election cycle in which McCain somehow barely eked out 77% of the statewide vote), Rodney Glassman (a local Democrat hack politico). You’re a ‘true conservative’ of the Internet, alright. What a farce.

  • Par4Course

    Kerry is a treasonous liar but you choose to attack Senator McCain in your headline and article. No wonder Republicans don’t win more elections. Sure JD Hayworth was more conservative than McCain but he couldn’t even hold his Congressional seat let alone win a statewide primary or general election. McCain may often be misguided (e.g., McCain-Feingold, etc.), but he doesn’t hold a candle to Kerry when it come to gutlessness or idiocy.

    • Oldflyer

      No one holds a candle to Kerry. He is in a class by himself. That does not elevate McCain however.

  • stan25

    Don’t forget that McCain was in the Hanoi Hilton at the time of the Hanoi Jane visit. One wonders how many special privileges that he received after her visit.

    • Oldflyer

      I completely accept that McCain was an excellent POW. I have friends who were there with him, and I have heard no criticism of him in that regard. His performance as a POW was as honorable as that of the others who endured along with him. The media has tried to elevate him because of the status of his father, and the offers of special treatment that flowed from that realtionship. Offers that he dared not accept; and did not. On the other hand, the POW experience says not a thing about his performance as a politician.

  • Idahoser

    we have not had senators since 1913, when the Senate was perverted into this second House, bribing us with our own money for votes, leaving the states with no representation and gutting the pretense that we were a Republic.
