ok, thats it watching Morning Joe and I just want to slap him, he is absolutely FLABBERGASTED at Gen. Clark saying that McCain is untest in Foreign Policy, you want to know what Joe's big explain of McCain foreign policy experience?
he was locked away and beating for 5 years.
listen I honor McCain service, that man is a hero, but being beaten up for 5 years does not teach you now to negoiate with others, being beaten up for 5 years does not teach you how diplomatic situations are handled. being beaten up for 5 years doesn't even teach you how you resolve a POW situation.
Yes GOPers if your ONLY reason for telling me that McCain has foreign policy is because he was locked away, I hope you are ready to say EVERY POW has the necessary Foreign Policy experience to be President.
the GOP always does this, the oh you are questioning a POW you are not patrotic, this belief that because McCain was a POW he is above criticism on his Foreign Policy experience is nonsense.
the man was tortured and he should be the first to tell us how ineffective torture was, infact McCain 2000 did just that, McCain 2008 not so much
so yes the GOP and America better understand this now McCain being a POW deserves repesct, the man should be honored, the man is a solider.
but the man does NOT get a pass on his foreign policy creditials ESPECIALLY if the GOP will just try and hide behind his POW status. because thats not enough for me to say you have to foreign policy experience to be president. and the more they try and play this up, the more I wonder is that it? is his POW status the ONLY reason I should believe he has foreign policy experience to be president?
