John McCain LIES to Vet in his Town Hall Meeting

According to Think Progress:

McCain has made the exact same claim before — and it is just a false today as it was then. As ThinkProgress documented, McCain’s so-called “perfect” record has been roundly criticized by prominent veterans groups: He received a grade of D from the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America and a 20 percent vote rating from the Disabled Veterans of America; Vietnam Veterans of America noted McCain had “voted against us” in 15 “key votes.”

As for the American Legion and the Veterans of Foreign Wars — with whom McCain claims to have a “perfect voting record” — both groups vigorously supported Sen. Jim Webb’s (D-VA) GI Bill that McCain tirelessly opposed.

Later in the town hall, McCain admitted he does “not have a perfect voting record,” but then declared that questions about veterans issues were off limits: “I will be glad to debate a lot of things, but not that one,” McCain said.

So McCain is following Bush's example to Lie instead of tell the truth. Appears that McCain will continue to "flip flop" and lie and do whatever he thinks he has to to become President and continue the Bush and neocon legacy.

He already thinks he is a "king." It seems that McCain thinks only he an mention military matters and no one should question him on this. This "status quo" mindset has got to go!!

Thank heavens most of the folks in the army and air force (that I've spoken to) think McCain is a liar and has failed to support military people and their families.
