It is highly irresponsible for a presumptive candidate to refuse secret service coverage. Looking coldly at the situation, if he gets killed the GOP is out millions and their best chance at holding the White House.

And the word is spelled "judgment."

I wouldn't want to see him or any Presidential candidate shot, and it would cause huge political and social distress, but the two consequenses you note would be the up side of it.

The question is: Why did he not also refuse military coverage while taking a "stroll through a farmers market" in the middle of Baghdad ?

He can afford private security in this circumstance.

you really think he had a choice?

how f'd would the commander have been if something happened under his watch? I'm sure he didn't personally ask for the helicopters and all that shit.

No, I'm not. You are simply a very blind and partisan apologist for one side, so you see things with huge distortion. There's not much I know that can help you, unfortunately. It's a little like seeing people who went through the great depression, or who were racist before the civil rights era - they are sort of stuck with a mindset affected by that.

I agree. I can totally see some deranged libtard.......maybe Harvey with his psychotic rantings and ravings, or Lemon Law with his Bush execution fantasies........attempt to off McCain in order to save America from teh eval GOP.




I kid........maybe. ;)

That and other factors - there's simply the reality of a nation of 300 million people and the fact there are some disturbed people, as John Lennon or Ronald Reagan would tell you.

And the word is spelled "judgment."[/quote]

I would love to get a spelling correction. You should check your facts before posting one, though, as both spellings are correct.

Hey genius, I'm an Obama supporter, I've never been a member of any political party, and you're still reaching if you think this issue demonstrates bad judgment by McCain.

Only P&N could care so much for the safety of the GOP as to warrant an assault on the very issue.

GOP abandoned its values to nominate McCain. After that they can win nothing. I wouldn't call it a loss actually.

Oh, go ahead and say it - you're pot, Palehorse is kettle. And see my previous post.

Ideology can be broader than party-based, it can be about other things.

That doesn't even make sense. Nice try though.
