Friends and Associates



Colonel George Day is a Medal of Honor recipient for his actions while a prisoner of war in Vietnam. He is also a friend and supporter of John McCain. William Ayers is a domestic terrorist and admitted bomber of several federal buildings. He is also a friend and supporter of Barack Obama. John McCain is not a hero, but Colonel Day is, and they are friends. Barack Obama is not a terrorist, but William Ayers is, and they are friends. There is no middle ground here folks, you either love the America that you grew up in or you don't. Colonel Day does, and he wants President McCain, William Ayers doesn't, and he wants President Obama. The choice is black and white. What is there to be undecided about?

You should consider getting out of the blog business because you will never make a better point. You amused yourself with that one line, didn't you?

I would disagree with you though... John McCain is indeed a hero.

If we accept the recent practice of ascribing the word "hero" to men who serve their country admirably(John McCain) and people who survive ordeals(Iranian hostages) then I suppose your right. On the other hand by lowering the bar to that level it becomes incumbent upon us to come up with another name for men like Colonel Day. I don't know John McCain but I'd like to think that, in private, if asked, he would be honest and admit that his name doesn't belong on a list with men like George Day, Robert Howard, Jimmie Howard, Fred Zabitosky, Wesley Fox, John Basilone, Joe Foss, or Audie Murphy etc. So, if we are going to call Senator McCain a hero what shall we call these TRULY extrordinary men?
