Jimmy Carter: Inventor of America's Misery Index
and Sufferer of Acute Verbal Diarrhea
"...Former President Jimmy Carter said Thursday that John McCain is “milking every possible drop of advantage” from his time as a prisoner of war in Vietnam, USA Today reported Thursday.
“John McCain was able to weave in his experience in a Vietnam prison camp, no matter what the question was,” Carter, a 7-year Naval officer, told the paper. “It’s much better than talking about how he’s changed his total character between being a senator, a kind of a maverick at the time, and his acquiescence in the last few months with every kind of lobbyist pressure that the right wing Republicans have presented to him.” (source)
Those that aren't just jumping on the political bandwagon now because they have a crush on Obama, know that McCain doesn't like to talk about his time in Vietnam and bristles when people call him a hero. They should go listen to old Sean Hannity shows if they want proof of that...
McCain's first executive act should be rescinding Carter's Secret Service agents.
