With the media nearly falling over itself to give McSame a pass on what would have been a career-ending faux pas had it come from the mouth of one of the Democratic candidates, we should remind the so-called MSM that we had another, highly decorated, prisoner of war who ran for national public office: James Stockdale
. It was pretty clear that he was not up to the job. Why does the media give McSame such a pass? Being a prisoner of war does not qualify one to be president, nor does it mean that one has deep insights into foriegn policy. Yes, we respect and revere the soldier for his service to the nation, but we don't hand them the football just because.
John McCain has yet to demonstrate that he has any of the qualities that we seek in our President.
It is time for the press to treat this election with the seriousness it deserves. They cannot give a candidate a "pass" simply because it is assumed that they are an expert in the field... Let's actually test that they are an "expert" before we give them the benefit of the doubt.
