    And a horse’s ass.

    Chuck Hagel and John McCain were once BFFs.
    I think losing in 2008 made McCain crazy, or maybe he is off of his meds.

    I will always think of McCain as the guy who was so desperate for power that he was willing to put Sarah Palin a heartbeat away from being President of the United States (it’s painful just to type that). As such, anything he says at this point is completely discredited or as my old mother said; you’re judged by the company you keep.

    Allowing Palin on the ticket, did prove poor John was not only over the hill, but rode too hard, put away wet, and sway backed too badly to ever ride again.

    @dtroutma

    Was the decision to place Sarah Palin even McCain’s own?

    Somehow, knowing what eventually she did to his candidacy, I am not so certain.

    After eight years of GW Bush, and the level of his popularity (lower than any other president in history), somehow I am not even certain in any way that the the Republican Party’s true leadership wanted to win in 2008!!

    John has served the country well. I disagree with him for most of his recent posturing. I suspect his party will replace him with another dribbling tea party fool.

    Hagel is the GOP RINO, with a history of choosing the wrong sides on world issues…..and McCain is a horses ass??
    Hagel is on the record with siding with America’s enemies!

    Nice trick with the three stars, have to try that myself.

    -

    To your post (and StCleve’s above): Sarah Palin was an experiment, i guess. They knew they had to do something, anything, to stand a chance against whoever ran for the Democrats after Bush. They would have lost to a bucket of warm spit, but they never, ever stood any chance against a sympathetic young black man. All their attempts to smear him just made their situation worse. When he came to Germany there were 250.000 people waiting for him. 250K! Overseas! For a effing candidate! I watched and recorded it at home, but only because I couldn’t be there myself.

    And then came that fateful interview with Katie Curic. I believe everybody knew that it was over after that. But what could they do? Drop her, this late in the game and get another rich, old, white man to run alongside McCain? No way. But it was McCain’s decision to accept her, nobody can (or should be able to) force anything on a candidate for the presidency. In the Oval Office or the Situation Room nobody can help you either…

    For formatting text go to my post on a stale thread:

    I just noticed I had replied to Robert & C on an old thread and it wasn’t likely to be seen. I’m redirecting you to it because it was a pain to format & create it and I’m lazy ;-)

    choosing Sarah who was Alaska’s governor, and very popular, was what saved McCain from a landslide LOSS; much of the GOP vote was conservatives like myself voting for Sarah for VP and holding our noses to vote for McCain.

    A President Palin would have pulled the USA out of recession before the 2010 election, and we never would have been plagued with Obamacare. Jobs would have been created by a business sector unafraid of what they face under Obama’s marxist regime.

    A long time ago, before I knew more about his history (such as his womanizing and endangering other sailors with rogue actions during the VietNam war), I used to admire his occasional unwillingness to go along with every GOP move. Observing with more focus, I’ve come to the conclusion that every move of his has been self serving. What a pitiful man. Thank goodness we don’t have to deal with him and the similar (self-serving) “rogue” from Alaska. His latest hissy-fits show just how unfit he is to lead.

    @disgustedtaxpayer

    “A President Palin would have pulled the USA out of recession before the 2010 election”. Why do you think that? because the TeaBots told you so? Considering that the recession hit bottom in the summer of 2009 and growth resumed ( officially the “end” of the recession), your comment shows you to be simply another low information Sarah worshipper.

    @dtroutma

    If memory serves Trout, somewhere on one of these threads I may have expressed unwarranted anger for something you said, taking it personally. Bad night, not an excuse so please accept my apology if somehow I was offensive. (can’t remember where…old ain;t always easy)

    McCain was wrong about attacking Iraq, wrong about the WMD, wrong about Libya, wrong about Iran, wrong about a permanent American presence in Iraq, and wrong about Afghanistan. Yet he challenges Hagel for being wrong about the surge, the one part of Iraq where McCain might have been right (though history is not being kind to that — it looks as though paying off young thugs to behave was much more important than having more American troops). He simply has no credibility left, and is spending his time re-arguing not only Iraq, but also Viet Nam.
