McCain's mom gives GOP some 'straight talk'i.l.cnn.net

rawstory.com — Republican presidential candidate John McCain has enjoyed more fervent support in the primaries from independent voters than from registered Republicans. Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh even told his audience recently that he might not be able to support McCain as the nominee.

When McCain's 95 year old mother, Roberta McCain, was asked how much support she thought her son had among the base of the Republican Party, she instantly replied, "I don't think he has any. ... Maybe I don't know enough about it, but I've not seen any help whatsoever."

She went on to say that if McCain wins the nomination, "holding their nose they're going to have to take him," but that didn't exhaust what she had to say about the GOP base.

"I'm really popping off," the elder McCain continued, "but he worked like a dog to get Bush reelected. He's backed Bush in everything except Rumsfeld. ... And I've never seen any public recognition of the work that he's done for the Republican Party."

He is a neo-liberal and a phony war hero.Colin powel is a decorated vietnam vet too.But read about him.He was in the field one time for a short period of time.One guy steps on a land minre and they take him out of the field.It was suppose to be safe.Then gets promoted over others.I bet the soldiers that actually got shot at would say he is no hero.Phony cowards with their phony medals strutting like they are some tuff ass mother.Bet they would be the first to piss their pants.
