The Faith Of My Fathers

Posted by Thunder Pig on July 2, 2008

Here is the story of John McCain’s imprisonment by the Noerth Viet Nemese, but I will let Conservative Voice USA provide the introduction, and paint the picture in broad strokes he made on the 35th Anniversary of his release from the Hanoi Hilton:

The video is in ten parts, and should advance automatically:

Say what you will about John McCain’s policies. You cannot deny that he is a hero.

Mccain vs Obama: It’s Character, Stupid!

Posted by Thunder Pig on July 2, 2008

The recent allegation by General Wesley Clark that John McCain’s service means little in leadership experience compared to Obama rings very false.

What? Since when does being a street organizer for the corrupt Marxist ACORN count as a prerequisite to become Commander-in-Chief of the United States of America?

I say that it all comes down to character, or in Obama’s case…the lack therof.

When John McCain was captured, he underwent severe hardship and nearly died from his wounds from his crash in a lake, and the beating he took after he extricated himself from the lake.

When he was offered early release by his captors (who had intended it as a cynical ploy to show the rest of the POWS that the elites always received better treatment at the expense of everyone around them), he refused…saying that he would not accept an offer of release until everyone who had been captured ahead of him was released first.

He was beaten again and again for that decision. He endured beatings and torture for his men, for those who served around him, and for the United States of America.

That takes character. That takes Honor. John McCain did his duty, and more. He bled for his men, he bled for his country.

Now, on to the character of Barack Obama.

Throughout his life…there is one common denominator. He has associated with people who could help him get ahead, and when he was done with them, he threw them every last one under the bus of his ambition.

And no one had to beat Obama to get him to abandon his associates.

That tells me all I need to know about the differences between the two men.
