My dedication to this man who was a Republican is the scene during the 2016 Presidential campaign when the women said disparaging remarks about John McCain’s opponent Barack Obama and McCain did NOT follow….
He lectured the woman that Obama might not have the same political views as him…
But he was …’“He’s a decent family man, a citizen that I just happen to have disagreements with on fundamental issues”…..
Bless you John McCain ….
And Thank You for your service and sacrifice for this Great Country…..
Arizona Sen. John McCain, who survived 5½ years as a prisoner of war in Vietnam to become one of the highest-profile, most confounding and pugnacious personalities in American politics — a one-time Republican presidential standard-bearer who alternately trampled and embraced GOP orthodoxy — has died. He was 81.
McCain, who was diagnosed with brain cancer in July 2017, died at 4:28 p.m. Saturday, his office confirmed in a statement. McCain’s passing came a day after his family announced he was ceasing medical treatment.
Although he spent more than three decades in Congress representing his adopted home state, McCain was hardly a stamped-from-the-mold politician. At a time when the country grew increasingly tribal and partisan, he drew admiration and antagonism from both parties.
“Warts and all, he was an iconic figure,” said Charlie Cook, a nonpartisan campaign analyst who followed McCain’s political career from the lawmaker’s arrival in Washington in the early 1980s. “As irascible and curmudgeonly as he could be, he was real. There was an authenticity.”
Within moments, tributes began to pour in from across the political divide….
A statement was said to come from Donald Trump…
I doubt he wrote it….
He HAD told others that he would have NOTHING to say about McCain’s passing because he STILL had a grade against him for saying things about him….Trump NEVER gave McCain respect for the ordeal he went thru during his time as a POW during WWII….
McCain had his warts….
But he was a gentle man who said what he thought ….
