    some of the time, well, you know, it's hard....

    "I’ll admit to you that it’s tough, it’s tough in some respects," McCain said, seeming to lend credence to Michelle Obama's observation."

    WTF Is It Now?!?: McCain hates America!!1!!!

    and he didn't always love America, how dare he.

    "Tough in some respects" is not equal to "I never was proud to be an American."
    "Tough in some respects" is not equal to "America is a mean country".

    be careful when using quotes. make sure what was actually said is in them, not your interpretation. otherwise misinformation is spread.

    question: can you love something or someone you aren't proud of?

    Why wouldn't she be proud of marines that landed on Omaha and Normandy? Why wouldn't she be proud of the men who flew supplies in behind the Berlin lines. Why wouldn't she be proud of the men who flew in supplies behind the Bataan March? Is she just now proud?

    I think the quote was he didn't love his country until he was held captive in a foreign POW camp.

    I think the quote was more that he didn't love his country until he was separated from it for a while... or something to that effect.

    I think the whole who loves the country more thing is pretty silly. Perhaps we should just accept they're all pretty fond of where they are.

    Lmao....nice cut and splice job with the video. Goes to show if you take 5 seconds you can cut back and forth to different parts of the interview.

    Btw do you have any credible sources other than a bunch of mindless liberals like yourself throwing shit against the wall? :lol:
