    I aslo disagree with McCain's voting record:

    September 2007: McCain voted against the Webb amendment calling for adequate troop rest between deployments.

    July 2007: McCain voted against a plan to drawdown troop levels in Iraq. At the time, an ABC poll found that 63% thought the invasion was not worth it

    March 2007: McCain was too busy to vote on a bill that would require the start of a drawdown in troop levels within 120 days

    February 2007: For such a strong supporter of the escalation, McCain didn’t even bother to show up and vote against a resolution condemning it.

    June 2006: McCain voted against a resolution that Bush start withdrawing troops but with no timeline to do so.

    May 2006: McCain voted against an amendment that would provide $20 million to the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for health care facilities.

    April 2006: McCain was one of only 13 Senators to vote against $430,000,000 for the Department of Veteran Affairs for Medical Services for outpatient care and treatment for veterans.

    March 2006: McCain voted against increasing Veterans medical services funding by $1.5 billion in FY 2007 to be paid for by closing corporate tax loopholes.

    March 2004: McCain once again voted for abusive tax loopholes over veterans when he voted against creating a reserve fund to allow for an increase in Veterans' medical care by $1.8 billion by eliminating abusive tax loopholes. Jeez, McCain really loves those tax loopholes for corporations, since he voted for them over our veterans' needs.

    October 2003: McCain voted to table an amendment by Senator Dodd that called for an additional $322,000,000 for safety equipment for United States forces in Iraq and to reduce the amount provided for reconstruction in Iraq by $322,000,000.

    April 2003: McCain urged other Senate members to table a vote (which never passed) to provide more than $1 billion for National Guard and Reserve equipment in Iraq related to a shortage of helmets, tents, bullet-proof inserts, and tactical vests.

    August 2001: McCain voted against increasing the amount available for medical care for veterans by $650,000,000. To his credit, he also voted against the 2001 Bush tax cuts, which he now supports making permanent, despite the dire financial condition this country is in, and despite the fact that he indicated in 2001 that these tax cuts unfairly benefited the very wealthy at the expense of the middle class.

    Senator McCain is not only a good person and very experienced from all point of views including his personal first hand experiences of difficult situations in war, combat and service towards the country to the extent of putting his life at stake, but also a seasoned and experienced statesman and politician; his comments need to be seriously and respectfully taken and not in a casual manner.

    One must not forget that Senator McCain actively participated himself in the wars and did not shirk to face the flying bullets in service to the country. Also being an officer of considerably high rank while in the armed services he is well qualified to understand the strategic needs and situations of the war and peace considering the vital interests not only of the country but also the country men, women and children.

    No other candidate has that experience though they have their own good points.

    No I strongly AGREE with him. We need to fix the mess and ensure a stable Iraq before we leave.

    Maybe we should go to war with China or India. Instead of attacking producers (Iraq and Iran) maybe we should just bomb the consumers and eliminate competition.

    Not on this one. We need to win in Iraq for our national security interests and to not embolden the terrorists. Congress and Bush have screwed around for too long, McCain knows how to get the job done and I trust him the most on giving us a win in Iraq.
