I am not a fan of Putin or the Russian government. But when I tired to
objectively compare both Putin's message to Americans and McCain's
response message to Russians, it became obvious Putin was much more civil than
McCain. Even Russia's official response to McCain's temper tantrum was
much more civil. Again, I'm not a Putin fan, but I am
disappointed in this latest episode between the USA and Russia not being helped
whatsoever by McCain.McCain chose to take the low road in his
response to Putin's message and gave no proof or examples whatsoever with
his accusations, and thus did absolutely nothing to help the current relations
between our two countries. Showing your opponent he is getting
under your skin is a weakness recently unthinkingly shown by both Obama and now

Senator McCain should be sent home. He is a disgrace to America. He attacked
the messenger, not the message. Whatever Putin is, he was civil and he pointed
out some of the problems that Obama has brought on America without personally
attacking anyone.Even bad men can make good observations. Putin did
that. McCain disgraced himself and this nation by acting like a 2-year-old
having a tantrum. Who needs a Senator who acts like a bully? It is none of
McCain's business how the Russians select their leaders. It is none of his
business whether the Russians allow Putin to stay in office. McCain, like Obama, has a very thin skin. He takes offense when someone
points out something that he doesn't want to hear. Maybe he should re-read
Putin's op-ed. Perhaps he should ask himself why the world sees America as
a bully. But that might not work. He personally acted the part of a bully. He
needs help before he gets us into a war with Russia.
Mr McCain's rant would be valid if spoken to a mirror in front of him ---
or any number of our own "leaders".
BO made similar rants against the GOP, yet he is worshipped by the press. oh
well, we all know how the press feels dem=good, GOP=bad
IMO Senator McCain is not the sharpest knife in the senate drawer, nor in many
silverware drawers. If I recall, his academic standing at USNA was not top
tier. We have a weird habit of electing men and women who are
notable in one area of life to government expecting great things of them.
McCain is an example. His time in the Hanoi Hilton was the path to elected
office. Had he not been a POW of long duration, and his father a flag officer
in the Navy he might not have remained in the public eye for so long.Bravery and courage in one area, sports, the arts or academia do not
necessarily translate to quality and sterling leadership or political sense.I think he has long passed his time of quality service and should
retire, but he will not as the perks and prestige of political office are as
powerful an opiate to the ego as alkaloids are to the brain. The same thought
goes for the senior senator from Utah.
It's time for McCain to retire from the Senate. He should have left public
life after the 2008 election.
The article appears under "News", not "Opinion", but the
headline is clearly a negative opinion. (If it said "skirts diplomacy"
or some such, it would be factual)The last paragraph quotes Glenn
Beck, who would not be high on many folks' list of reliable and temperate
commentators, and seems to be a way to slip in Beck's desire to impeach the
President.I must say that I personally think that a media outlet
owned by a reputable Christian church ought to be more careful about catering to
the folks who are not exactly filled with love, as their comments indicate.DN might lose a bit of popularity with some, particularly some elderly
folks living in isolated areas, if they eliminated calling opinion fact.The church has Jesus in its name -- I think it is a good idea for the
DN, its public voice, to pay attention to how He commanded us to treat one
@Mike RichardsSouth Jordan, UtahSenator McCain should be sent
home. He is a disgrace to America. He attacked the messenger, not the message.
======== Nothing new here folks, move along.Senator McCain is pushing the same agenda he always has.Speaking
of disgrace to America - as the Republican nominee, didn't you vote for him
for the most powerful position in America a few years ago?
Well, John, it looks like America is not so exceptional after all.
airnaut..There was not much to choose from in that election. Mc
Cain's days are over. He has made his statement and served the armed forces
well, making great sacrifices for us all. Now, he should rest his case and
retire. Maybe look after grand kids, or go fishing. Putin is pure
trouble in the long term for America and the middle east, watch and see.
