I gotta ask - what's BUFF?

Nixon was never a warm and fuzzy guy but he did OK politically.

  Well a whole lot of hatin' going on.  If he is so despised how come he
is a shoo-in to get renominated/reelected?

      Well said, Wilton.

      Any and all who went North earned and deserve respect.

      I know three John McCain

      The ego driven hotdog pilot, who likely benefited  from and used to
his
      advantage, being the Admirals son. Who I hold in pretty low regard.

      The Prisoner of War, who I respect, and thanked for having endured
the
      endless torture and privation.

      The Senator, who for 32 yrs, has spoken much, but done little, who
dumped
      and divorced the mother of his children, who stood by him all the
while he
was POW, and who then married the rich young hottie, and I hold that
one in
      pretty low regard also.

      Trump didn't get where he is by being shy and retiring. He is smart
and
ruthless. He also is not intimidated by anyone... So, I don't see an
      apology in the future.
McCain and the rest of us are seeing a game change in action. Trump,
even
      if defeated will have "left his mark" before it's over in how DC
elites do
      business.

      Frankly, it's the kind of "hope and change" much of America had in
mind
      when the present administration sold the phrase. Should be
interesting to
      watch them run away from it now.

Question: If Germany had not made war on the civilized world, would
we be
      driving Mercedes cars today? Would they have been "discovered" in
America?

        In a sense, Trump was  right - McCain and others would not have
been so
"famous" and considered so "heroic" if they had not been shot down
and
        captured - selected by Fate to endure the unimaginable.  But for
the Grace
of God there was I. I'm not so sure I could have endured the many
years of
        captivity and torture that they did, though, and I'm extremely
thankful
        that I never had to try.  Those of us lucky enough to have NOT
been shot
        down occasionally discussed the subject, but not one of us was
willing to
        exchange places with a POW.  I have great respect for every one
them and
        what they endured.

        So, in a literal sense, Trump was right - ya just can't say it
like that -
        well, Trump, who "dodged" such service completely, can't
(shouldn't),
        anyway.

         >Anyone listen to the 31 broadcasts McCain made while at the
Hanoi Hilton?



            Over North Vietnam radio?

            Anyone know that he had charges against him upon his release?
Anyone know
            he got a Presidential Pardon?

Yeah.. didn't think so.. Might want to look into just what the
guy is
            really made of.  Trump isn't that far off the mark, if you
look at the
            true
            facts..

            Just saying.. Go digging.

          Some have said that the rockets going off on the carrier was an
attempt
          at fragging aimed at little john.  At any rate, he was NOT well
liked in
          his squadron.  Probably not on the float....   Anyone know for
sure if the
          rocket that brought mclame down was truly a sam? I don't.  I
have not
          researched it.

          I don't think Trump is as historically illiterate as his
detractors. I
          have not heard the whole 15 minute interview with trump on Sat.
In
          context, I doubt it was a slam on all veterans, as we have been
told, but
          rather a comment just about mclame.
