John McCain abandoned his disfigured first wife for a new one worth over $100 million. McCain now has $40 million. All of this money was inherited. None of it was earned.

Hypocritically, he now attacks Obama, a self-made man, as 'elitist' and 'out of touch'.

McCain's 2005 home:

Nice pool, huh?

"You get John McCain in the White House and I do believe we will be at war with Iran. That's one of the things that makes me very nervous about him. ... There's no doubt John McCain is going to be a war president. Can anybody see John McCain as a peacetime president? It's preposterous. ... He's in Putin's face. He's threatening the Iranians. "We're going to be in Iraq a hundred years." ... John McCain is a bellicose, red-faced, angry guy who constantly explodes."

*** Conservative pundit Pat Buchanan

"It's frightening to think of a man with his temperament with all the things a president has at his fingertips--the IRS, CIA, FBI..."

** Winslow Wheeler, Capitol Hill staffer at the Center for Defense Information

"John McCain served his time as a POW with great courage, loyalty and tenacity. More that 600 of us did the same. After our repatriation a census showed that 95% of us had been tortured at least once. The Vietnamese were quite democratic about it. There were many heroes in North Vietnam. I saw heroism every day there. And we motivated each other to endure and succeed far beyond what any of us thought we had in ourselves. Succeeding as a POW is a group sport, not an individual one. We all supported and encouraged each other to survive and succeed. John knows that. He was not an individual POW hero. He was a POW who surmounted the odds with the help of many comrades, as all of us did.

I furthermore believe that having been a POW is no special qualification for being President of the United States. The two jobs are not the same, and POW experience is not, in my opinion, something I would look for in a presidential candidate.

I can verify that John has an infamous reputation for being a hot head. He has a quick and explosive temper that many have experienced first hand. Folks, quite honestly that is not the finger I want next to that red button."

*** A letter written by Phillip Butler, PhD, Cdr, USN (ret.), entitled Why I Will Not Vote for John McCain:

pow hero, or lying songbird?
