    His voting record should be.

    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.

    NOT ... more than 50% of ALL marriages end in divorce ... most being caused by infidelity !!!

    What IS IMPORTANT .... BEING PRO-AMERICAN !!!!

    Obama is ANTI-American !!!!

    WHY would Hillary Supports vote for an Anti-American ???

    I ... have no problem voting for a person - black, female, white, etc. - as long as that person is the BEST candidate for the position of THE President of THE United States of America !!!

    IF ... OBAMA was a WHITE man WITH the SAME LACK of Qualifications, HE would have been - LAUGHED - out of the Nomination process in the BEGINNING !!!!

    Governors have a hell of a lot more experience "managing" than ANY - JUNIOR - Senator.

    Obama did NOT even finish his FIRST TERM in office !!!

    I am for OUR America AND OUR Children's Future !!!!

    That is WHY ... WE ... NEED to make sure that EVERY American KNOWS about Senate Bill S.2433

    OBAMA wants to END WORLD POVERTY on YOUR NICKEL AND SURRENDER THE United States to THE United Nations.

    Please, SEARCH the phrase above !!!! ... OR the Actual Senate Bill Number - S.2433 !!!

    There are so probably so de-sensitized by what their congressmen have been busted with, that McCain must seem like beacon of moral righteousness. Nothing like having a GoP congressman busted for trying to hire a male prostitute in a public bathroom to lower the bar.

    McCain did what Hillary and all the candidates do. They ignore the facts and talk about issues that are not important to fixing anything.THEY JUST TALK ABOUT RAISING OR LOWERING YOUR TAXES. THEY HIT YOU IN THE POCKETBOOK WHERE IT ONLY HURTS YOU BUDDY. IT DON'T HURT THEM A BIT.

    Republicans are in denial. They're only concerned about Bill Clinton's, a Democrat, infidelities. Remember, they IMPEACHED him for it. Double standards from hypocrites!

    Probably not. They have had gay men trying to pick gay conquests in public restrooms. Married gay men trying to give highly qualified positions to their gay lovers. Gay men marrying and having children to hide their lifestyle only to be outed by the media.

    They could careless....McCain is a perfect example. His wife stayed dedicated to him while he was...(yawn) a POW and what does he do when he returns... Dump her for a richer...younger...model.

    They don't care! They always play dumb when its one of their own. Oh but let it be a Democrat and it would be a different story.

    You liberals don't understand, when you become a republican you can just sit in judgement of others, while committing the same acts.
