Everybody likes to refer to John McCain as a war hero. The press is very good at this, John McCain becomes the, “maverick” and throws a monkey wrench into any conservative legislation that may be going through the Senate. He becomes praised and if anybody speaks out against him he is reminded that John McCain is a war hero.
I would like to remind the press Benedict Arnold was also a war hero, until he was a traitor. John McCain is put himself before the country, both a matter of pride.
