McCain: Too Stupid to be President?

Watch the vid and judge. Pretty sad.

What a choice: an idiot and a huckster!

McCain is the last, best hope for America… and that’s straight talk my friends.

Pretty easy to pick people apart a few times and just show a video of their faults.

HH; no offense bro, but I’d like to how you handle the stress and rigors of the national campaign trail. I’m sure you’d sound like a damn genius Gump!

Seriously, you could take any major politician who has spent time in the national spotlight and string together a dumbass highlight reel. This wasn’t impressive IMHO.

The only real question now is, will you vote for the idiot, or the huckster? :wink:

Well, he lost 5 planes. Perhaps he’s not the man to return competency to the White House.

I’m being consistent here, guys: I attacked O’bama for saying there were 57 states and saying Auschwitz was in Germany. Fair is fair.

Will the Dems play the Tim Russert bit in a commercial? You betcha… I would.

Headhunter: Fair and Balanced political coverage since October 2002.

=D

And no, McCain is not an idiot. Just old and stressed.

Can anyone tell me more info about the college McCain went to? I know it was a military Uni, so I don’t know anything about it’s academic credentials.

Come on, that’s pure Machiavellian political expediency. Apparently he’s not that good at it either.

He went to the Naval Academy. I’ve met some intelligent people from there and I’ve also met some complete idiots. Mostly, it’s a good old boys network. His dad was an admiral who went there, so I’m not sure how much in the way of credentials he needed.

McCain was an aircraft carrier, fighter, pilot. To be able to pilot a plane a thousand miles out to sea, find an object the size of three football fields then safely land an airplane on it requires a level of intellect that most people do not possess. Also the technical demands of air to air jet combat are beyond the ability of ninety nine percent of the people.

You calling McCain stupid demonstrates your own stupidity HH. It takes intelligence and honesty to recognize intelligence in others. It takes stupidity to miss it.

The old boy network might get you into the pilot seat of a jet fighter, but it won’t get you on the deck of an aircraft carrier, alive.

All of those accomplishments were years ago and I honor them. But, he is now 71 and contradicting himself all over the place. How is handling the toughest job in the world going to effect him, when he has to endure this 24/7/365?

Look how retiring Presidents look like hell. The job is hell. Can he handle it?

No one knows for sure, and while there may be many questions to raise about McCain, his toughness isn’t one of them.

A Presidency can be tough, and even the race is - even Obama looks as though his hair is more gray, but maybe I am seeing things - but I suspect McCain has a perspective on Hell few presidents could know.

Flying takes brains, to be sure. But he lost 5 planes.

For a polititian, why use stupid? Why not asshole?

Really the only reasonable choice in this election.
Obama has no integrity, (how can you resign from a church where you went for 20 years just because it hurts your campaign), no viable economic plan, and will begin to make healthcare public witch would be horrible just imagine how gov burocracy fucks everything up BMV, Justice system etc. imagine an industry as large as healthcare (just spent a couple months in Europe, lots of socialism specially france)

Smaller gov. for the people
