    George W. Bush & John McCain

    When you classify George W. Bush as an Idiot. You infer that all individuals that wore the uniform of the United States Air Force as Idiots. Also, you classify all individuals that wore the wings of a pilot as an idiot.

    As a wearer of the same uniform for 37 ½ years I consider your verbiage as being totally uniformed and lacking of moral character.

    As far as Senator John McCain is concerned he graduated the US Naval Academy. Was A Fighter Pilot. And a POW. Any disparaging remarks against Senator McCain are considered Un-American.

    When you have walked in their shoes then you can criticize. Until then keep your mouth shut.

    • Bush and McCain, both sons of priviledge, and both royally screwed up/ deserve no respect, just because they wore a uniform.

    • "As far as Senator John McCain is concerned he graduated the US Naval Academy. Was A Fighter Pilot. And a POW. Any disparaging remarks against Senator McCain are considered Un-American."

      McCain graduated 4th from the "bottom" at the Naval Academy. Ace McCain destroyed 5 US Navy aircraft making him N Viet Nam's very first fighter ace. Admittedly, that last crash wasn't his fault but it is amazing what you can get away with when your Dad is an Admiral. As far as POW, he was reportedly called the Hanoi song bird by fellow veterans.

    • "When you have walked in their shoes then you can criticize. Until then keep your mouth shut."

      Htinsloc, I served in the military as well and got 2 Masters degrees in the process. I am a conservative to the core, but I fought even for the right of the dumbass liberals to spout their dumbass liberal think.

    • WTF are you talking about?

      gee, when I applied to be a pilot
      Duhbya had already gone AWOL from TANG for incompetance, McSame had already lost his fifth plane, yet both were 'carried' by the system when others were thrown to the wolves...

      x-mas eve 1989 they said I wasn't needed for the Panama Deception
      by the time got back
      was locked-in by a back-door draft
      and they wouldn;t give me my annual bonus retroactive to my annual date...and then asked me to go to Iraq...

      worked out better that way, in about 100 years, if live so long...

      THEIR SHOES ARE TOO SMALL

    • You of all people, with 37 years of service, should despise George Bush and the mockery his time in uniform was to the country and the military. McCain, a great American and a brave pilot. George Bush, a spoiled rotten rich kid that never served his country.
