Do you think McCain's Alzheimer's will work against him this fall?

Considering Barack is in tip top shape, do you think McCain's physical condition will be a hindrance for him?

Update:

I heard about McCain's Alzheimer's from some other users and Sean Hannity confirmed this.

    It has in the past.

    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.

    It might be an idea to see if you can find a credible source for the claim that McCain has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's first.

    Then you can start smearing him with a little bit of credibility, although I do understand that credibility is not the watchword of the 'slash & burners'.

    Edit: "I heard about McCain's Alzheimer's from some other users and Sean Hannity confirmed this."

    Main Entry: cred·i·ble

    Pronunciation: \ˈkre-də-bəl\

    Function: adjective

    Etymology: Middle English, from Latin credibilis, from credere

    Date: 14th century

    1 : offering reasonable grounds for being believed <a credible account of an accident> <credible witnesses>

    2 : of sufficient capability to be militarily effective <a credible deterrent> <credible forces>

    Hope that helps. Y!A users and a FoxNews goofball don't quite cut the mustard as credible.

    no. Someone will be telling him what to say anyways. as long as he can read a prompter or repeat what his earpiece says, without sounding like a robot then he'll be fine.

    no. seriously though. i think what WILL work against him are his antiquated foreign affairs policies and world views. Americans are not more safe because of what bush did, and mccains policies are just the continuation of what he did. Plus American's are actually more interested in politician's actual policies because, we have problems and we want to know what their plan to fix it is.

    Sounds like you may be very familiar with senility yourself. It must have been very easy for you to understand your own problem with Alzheimer's since you have been able to diagnose McCain's affliction. How are you coping? Do people have to assist you in your daily living?

    Cite a source to back your claim. McCain does not have Alzheimer's disease.
