Former POW Resigns From Bush Campaign

WASHINGTON (AP) - A former POW resigned as a volunteer to President Bush's re-election campaign Saturday after it was learned that he appeared in an anti-John Kerry ad sponsored by the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth.

I'm so sick of the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth.

I am not a fan of the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, either, to put it mildly. They make me sick.

There's another former POW working for the Bush campaign that I'd like to see resign.

Yes, good ol' McCain, the darling of all parties. You'd think a man of his good character would distance himself from Bush after this smear campaign.

Interesting how Kerry is calling for the ads to be pulled rather than disclosing the records that would refute their claims....

I know. The whole situation is really sort of ironic. The same people who made the Swift Boat ads carried out the 2000 smear campaign against McCain. I remember that campaign as I actually "crossed over" to vote for McCain in the 2000 primaries. This disqualified me from voting in the Democratic run-off elections, something I wasn't overjoyed with.

The only reason McCain sticks with the Bush camp even after sort of getting smeared in the 2000 primary is that he is a Republican at heart (with a liberal streak).

He knows better than to trust Kerry to lead this country in the area of foreign relations.

Which records would those be? The official Navy reports? The citations for his own and Larry Thurlow's Bronze Star?

I think the reason McCain stays with Bush is because he wants to be the nominee in 2008 after Dubya's second term.

John McCain is a Republican who very much has a mind of his own. He follows after his own heart and convictions, something that's really rare in politics.

Apparently, those records haven't diminished the questions regarding Kerry's service and there are other records he has refused to release.

OMG, we are sitting here arguing about who will and will not release military service records?

Actually, its because McCain views on foreign policy and national defense are often very different from Senator Kerry's as we have seen in the past. McCain voted for the 1991 Gulf War to remove Saddam's military from Kuwait. Senator Kerry voted against removing Saddam's military from Kuwait. McCain voted for the first aid package to support the military and economic development in Iraq, Kerry voted against it. These are just a couple of examples.
