OMG.  Come to terms with reality John.  You’re never going to be president.  Let.  It. Go.

McCain Sets Meeting to Discuss Re-Election

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) has scheduled a breakfast meeting for Nov. 6 in Arizona where he will discuss with supporters his “thoughts” on seeking re-election in 2016, the Arizona Republic reports.
Earlier this month, McCain told reporters that the odds of him running again in 2016 “are pretty good.”


Poor John.  At 78-years-old (he will be 80 in 2016), he’s still trying to impress, and be accepted by, his father and grandfather who were both four star admirals in the United States Navy.

    Must say, I’ve always felt sympathetic with Hamlet – and a kinship with John McCain. We were both Naval Aviators, flew the same plane. He was the hero-role model. If you want to see pure physical courage, find a video of the USS Enterprise fire and you will see John McCain climb out of his A-4, run into a fuel-fed fire, pick up a live bomb, carry it out and drop it overboard; saving lives and perhaps the ship. He endured the worst the North Vietnamese could dish and yet maintained his sanity and dignity.

    These same personality traits have built what he has become: a reflexive, thoughtless, reactionary warrior; a mere caricature of a Senator or a statesman.

    Personally, I choose to remember that moment from the 2008 election as the true reflection of his character. It was a town hall and an elderly woman said she could not vote for Obama because, “He’s . . . he’s . . . a Muslim.”

    “No, Ma’am, he’s not.” McCain replied without hesitation. “He’s a good Christian family man, with whom I disagree on a number of issues.”

    Class. Tragically a characteristic seldom exhibited since.

    Yeah, that 2008 moment was McCain at his finest.

    I’ll have to look for video of McCain on the Enterprise. What you describe sounds incredible.
