Clinton and Obama are totally lacking in any meaningful experience either legislative or corporate. Is there no one to check facts on the weekend? Confidential material may include, but is not limited to, educational, medical, and personnel records. He could not use either arm, and could not feed himself. There's no need for McCain to run this kind of deceptive ad. Most of the past administrations with the exception of Carter had a practice of intentionaly misleading the public. This is probably why during the last presidential election some people were left feeling uncomfortable with John Kerry's emphasizing his service in Vietnam and I'm not just referring the Swift Boat nut jobs - it did in fact go beyond that crowd. There was no Tylenol, Aleve, aspirin, morphine, or any painkillers for us.
My father served, and so did millions of others. Giving rank and number means precisely one thing to most laymen: the only information a heroic prisoner will give his captors.

In a healthy family, parents would seek out help to keep their children from taking on too much. Sorry off-topic, but I noticed a trend.
Of course cooking comes to mind- live to ride; ride to cook Posted by 14 years ago. Remember his is the smart one, we are just the dumb public. I want a national leader who will bring a nuanced, fresh, and open approach to our international policy.

I was still limping from the gunshot wound and the bail-out injury to my right knee.
It is certainly not personal, since I happen to like him, but whatever our differences I hope I never stoop to the level of ad hominum comments for the simple fact that he seems to be someone you can agree to disagree with without it becoming personal.

Can McCain's campaign be held accountable for the inaccurate representations of various media sources? Armed Forces replaced service numbers with the Social Security Number for paperwork reasons years ago.
As an outsider, looking at the McCain Ad, there is no where in the world I would have thought he was actually being interrogated by his Captors, because he was smoking or did had cigarette in his hand.

You would have to be pretty naive to believe that the Vietnamese interrogated their prisoners on camera. I have heard enough about it now. If so is it possible to scan through the member list numerically rather than alphabetically. Our gallows humor idea of a joke was to ask that no one tell anything of importance since we had low thresholds of pain and would spill our guts. My father received the Silver Star for putting his life in danger and saving others while being shot and becoming disabled as a result.
