Quantcast

Despite his quick temper, do you feel certain that John McCain has the right temperament to deal with foreign leaders on sensitive issues?

    Who said he has a quick temper. He sure didn't do any bitching or fighting for that matter when he was in a hole in Nam.

    Not just no but Hell No. He would end up being our next republican war monger president. If he is a elected our future, as a country, is bleak at best.

    Being a grump is not necessarily a bad thing... How about being an incompetent? How about being a complete ignoramus about international politics? How about being inexperienced? These things seem to me of higher import than the fact that a McCain type of President could tell a foreign leader to fuck off.

    Once again, the media is at work. They want "Billary," when the race should be between McCain and Obama. With either of those two, things will be run within this country a bit better.

    I don't know what media you are referring to, but it is OBVIOUS that they only want OBAMA vs. McCAIN They continuously offer bullshit polls that seem to demonstrate that Obama is better against McCain than Hillary. That is not a pro Clinton spin, but a pro Obama spin.

    Do people even remember that these same poll 4 years ago said the same about John Kerry? How come he lost to one of the most unpopular Presidents in the history of America? because Democrats have recently chosen THE WORST PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES! Now, they are heading in the same direction with Barack Hussein Obama...

    Good luck kids, you are going to need it...

    of course not all i can picture is this angry little troll running around picking fights with everyone. I am republican and I can't stand any of our choices. But someone with his temper scares me alot. This time after seventeen years i will vote for Obama or not at all.

    Maybe, maybe not....but President Cheney regularly told folks to fuck off(when he wasn't shooting his friends) and his hand puppet Bush has absolutely NO skills at Foreign relations, so McCain can't be any worse...

    Worse than Bush/Cheney??? That would be tough. I guess it's good that Hitler and Vlad The Impaler are dead...

    I know my spelling is bad but if you think that bush couldn't get us into all of the crap he did all on his own you are mistaken. Mccain has far more temper problems and if you think that won't affect his ability to make choices your wrong and we don't even know who will be at his side yet. It is really apparent that spelling has nothing to do with your ability to reason.

    He will likely be the next President, but it isn't because of the hidden hand of Imperialism. It will be because we vote him in, which to me is even scarier.

    Anyone who makes light of war by singing "bomb Iran" to the tune of a Beach Boys song has no business being involved in any kind of foreign policy. We've already suffered through nearly 8 years of a president who makes decisions based on his "gut feelings" and childish fits of emotion ("Bring it on."). The country (and the world) can't take any more.

    he didn't base his decisions on that.He based it upon the reality of the threat of these radical terrorists. Can you imagine taking a mentally challenged woman and using her to blow up a 70 yr old woman or teaching 10 yr old boys how to kidnap ppl and actually have them behead a man?
    BTW.I'm not certain about McCain's temper. I do know that Hillary was known to throw things when she was angry.So i don't know...but i do know that Bush has never done anything on gut feelings.This is the picture the media has painted and unfortunately they are horribly biased.

    All presidential candidates and, therefore, all presidents have big egos. There's no way for a person to survive the grueling long distance battle that is a presidential campaign without a big ego. They are also passionate people, bigger than life in some ways. So, I think all of them are to be forgiven for having occasional fits of temper. My concern, however, is the ideology *behind* that ego and passion -- the ideology that is the basis for that person's decisions. Bush has frequently said that his decisions are based on gut feelings and "what god told him to do." And if anyone questions those decisions, he simply reminds them that he's "the decider," never mind the circular illogic of such a statement. ("Trust and abide by my decisions without question because I've decreed that I'm the decider.") Problems, even when they make us angry, should be decided with a cool head, based on tangible facts -- and should be made with the best interests of the country in mind, not because, "Saddam Hussein threatened my daddy" or because it would reap profits for Haliburton, CACI, Blackwater, Raytheon, Exxon and Shell Oil. (Bush said that about "his daddy," too... I'm sure it can be found online, from a legitimate news source somewhere.) With respect to the terrorists, while I would agree that a threat ...

With respect to the terrorists, while I would agree that a threat exists -- and these people are nut jobs -- the solution is not a military one. Most terrorist plots have been foiled by good intelligence and good police work, not with armies, bombs and depleted uranium munitions. Yes, there are terrorist nut jobs out there, but Bush has chosen the worst possible way to deal with the problem. (I think the disastrous results speak for themselves. Bush has blown it... blown it big time.)

    If you ever seen the original movie version of The Dead Zone, doesn't McCain seem like a Greg Stillson type of character-says anything to get elected and be popular, but has a very dark heart and ends up revealing it before he gets elected president.

    Let me ask you something.When we went to war with Japan did we take their terrority after the war?
    Korea? Vietnam? Kuwait?
    We are the ONLY country in history who has gone to war [when needed [defending liberty and have left without taking the country we left.
    In fact,we helped build them back up.
    The ONLY country in history to do such a thing.I heard all this about we were on the verge of starting a nuclear war when Regean was President. I remember when we used to be taught to duck under our desks and there were designated bomb shelters in our towns. The United States is not on the verge of starting a nuclear war.We're doing everything possible to avoid such a thing.I'd worry more about the Islamic states.They don't even mind blowing themselves up.We do.
    That makes them extremely dangerous.They don't care about their own ppl.They think suicide is the way to go.I think i'd worry more about them.

    At least he has a history he can flip flop on. Neither Hillary nor Barack have done anything to flip on.

    However, Hillary has a nack for changing her mind there times in two min. I support drivers licenses for illegal aliens, Oh, I do not, Oh I do not want to take a stand on anything that will make me unpopular with any ethnic group.

    That could be because he is not a conservative. He is a moderate and it seems like everyone in politics is becoming a vanilla politician today. He does not represent all Republican conservative views. All he has going for him is his war record which I might add is not very stellar. He lost 5 planes in the navy and only one of the was from enemy fire.

    Oh and did you know he finished in the bottom of his class at the naval academy? He brags about that fact. Still think he has the right stuff?
