I don't like any POS that could have served his country and didn't. What branch of the service were you in?

McCain is suddenly revered now that he has joined the resistance attacking Trump at every turn and trashing the Republican party in the process.

Surly, that's nonsense. Could have served? Probably less than 5% of the population have served. And at this point virtually no DC politician.

I was army. RA. Draftee/enlistee. My BIL, same age, same class. Did not serve, married deferral. He was a POS, but not because of his military status.

Cool, but you are going to have a conservative Messiah he should have lived up to the dogma. Instead he makes fun of POW's and Gold Star Moms and is mindless worshipped no matter what. Just sayin...

I don't have a conservative Messiah.

Trump said that being captured did not automatically make you a hero. That's a fact. Doing heroic things makes you a hero. I think the attempt was being made to piggyback on Patton's quote "The object is not to die for your country, but to make the other SOB die for his".

Similarly, the Gold Star quote. I've heard that nearly every time someone dies doing what they choose to do. The last time I heard it was a from a friend who's son in law died in a kayak accident. Almost word for word.

You really don't get it. More than a few supporters of the President do not think of him as a Messiah, More than a few do not mindless worship.

Some statements cannot be taken back, nor forgotten.

Quote:

“He’s not a war hero,” said Trump. “He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.”

At a press availability following his remarks, Trump denied saying that McCain isn’t a war hero and said, “If somebody’s a prisoner, I consider them a war hero.”

He also continued his attacks on the Arizona senator, saying, “I think John McCain’s done very little for the veterans. I’m very disappointed in John McCain.”

In a follow-up statement sent to reporters, Trump again declined to apologize, calling McCain “yet another all talk, no action politician who spends too much time on television and not enough time doing his job.”
Looking at the last statement, the irony is thick at the present time, don't you think?

Agreed. That was not only callous but just plain stupid.

and furthermore, dare I say McCain prefers a commander-in-chief who didn't have bone spurs?

So then you don't like Bill Clinton or Barack Obama right.

Or how about Hillary or Elizabeth or Nancy Pelosi.

They never served but then you said "his country and didn't" thus making you sexist as well as hypocritical.

We are now a totally volunteer military. Most men and women choose not to serve thus limiting the number of people who would therefore qualify under your criteria. Is that really a good idea?

I'm curious to know exactly what about a stint in the military uniquely prepares someone to be POTUS.

I think they would have a lot more cred if they had been in the service.
