Don’t be an idiot. The USCP made the decision to arrest. McCain, who was halfway across the country, had nothing to do with it.

Let’s look at the man’s policy positions: McCain’s tax policies would continue the economic devastation of the disability community. Unlike most disabled folks, McCain doesn’t have to worry about being warehoused in a nursing home, or going without health care, money, lack of transportation options, job security, the list could go on. Not surprisingly, he has no substantive disability initiatives in those areas either.

The U.S capital police is in charge of security at the senate offices not McCain or anyone on his staff.

To blame this on McCain is an outrage. To link him up with this incident is an outrage. McCain himself is disabled and can’t even lift his arms up to comb his hair from the torture he went through.

I am sick and tired of McCain being smeared by the media.

The headline should be u.s capital police arrest them.

For the media to link it to mccain is an outrage. McCain was in Florida at the time.

But it worked. Now voters like Jen won’t vote for McCain because they think he is evil.

I am so sick of politics. The worst election campaign ever.

It’s about time some real differences on policy got some media focus, instead of comparing the Democratic infight with the currently uncontested McCain. Obama, is the only candidate I trust.

Democratic contenders Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton support the bill, he said.”

It sure would be plesent if MSM, in this case Reuters, could get the facts correct. Ron Paul, like it or not, is still running for the Republican nomination. The national convention is not until September and McCain has not won the nomination. So please Reuters get the facts correct, you are a professional national news organization.
