Another week, more McCain flip-floppery. We the folks at The Real McCain are once again happy to bring it to you:

* Apparently many McCain staffers up and quit when he flip-flopped on his own presidential announcement plans. Did I mention he didn't thell them? What a straight-shooter!

* McCain also was for using the word "wasted" when referring to lives lost in Iraq before he was against it. Now he's for "sacrificed." As in, how many more lives do you intend to sacrifice in this failed, trumped up war, senator?

*“I will take responsibility for being a member of the Armed Services Committee and not knowing about it and not doing anything about it,” the Republican 2008 contender told a group of county officials from across the country today. “I apologize for my failure” to act, the Arizona Republican added. “I should be held accountable.”

This is the current McCain on Walter Reed. Here is McCain during the 2006 election cycle when campaigning against Tammy Duckworth (yes, he campaigned against a vet who lost both legs in combat--nice way to show you're for the troops first and party second):

"Mr. McCain demanded the apology while electioneering for a Republican congressional candidate in Illinois...He was speaking of how often he had been to Walter Reed Hospital to see the wounded Iraq veterans, of how many of them have lost limbs. "

No senator, the residents of Walter Reed should be demanding much more than just an apology from you. If you were there numerous times, and did NOTHING about the situation there, how about we hear from you as to why you did NOTHING.

Thanks as always, and hope you enjoyed this week's edition.

Cliff Schecter will be publishing a book on John McCain this summer called The Real McCain.

Can't wait for the book, Cliffy!

McCain needs more than the usual 2 sides of his mouth. He needs 3 or 4 just to keep pace with himself.

I loved the story about his staff quitting when I first heard it. Can't get much more humiliating than that.

...Or can it...?

You need to check this out,

This definitely should be in your book as well as commentary from POW/MIA Families detailing how McCain has treated them over the years. The simple fact that he made the sister of a missing man cry while she was giving testimony before the Senate Select Committee on POW/MIA Affairs in 1992 after he went into one of his well know fits of rage is unforgiving.

You and I, poltically, stand on opposite sides of the aisle, but when it comes to McCain, we are allies. He doesn't deserve to be a US Senator, let alone POTUS.

I am looking forward to the Vietnam Veterans against John McCain group to get started.
