Murtha's Right. McCain's Too Old To Be President: He Must Release His Medical Records

By       (Page 1 of 2 pages)   No comments

Rep. John Murtha: "Let me tell you something, it's [the presidency] no old man's job."

In referring to Johnny “GWH” McCain being far too old to be president, the venerable Pennsylvania legislator has never been more correct in his assessment of a situation since he went public, and began calling for stopping the insanity of Iraq and getting our soldiers the hell out of there.

Who should know better than a 75-year-old man that his peer of 71-years is too old to be president?

Even Old-Man-McC has truth-in-jested that he might die in office, which is all the more reason McCain should be forced to make his medical records available to the press as he voluntarily did during his run in 2000.

Back then, reporters were welcomed and ever encouraged to come on down and view McC’s medical records, but they could not remove them from McCain’s office, and take them back to their offices for relaxed scrutiny.

Fair enough. At least they were open to scrutiny and diagnosis.

McC dropped out of that race so quickly, the offer became moot.

No longer is it moot. It’s vital that reporters have access to those records, records that McC has yet to reveal, giving one lame-brained excuse after another.

Eight years have painfully flown by since then and a lot of medication tossed back.

What’s happened to McC’s body and mind in that time?

We can see the tumors in his face that have exploded with the power of the bombs, bombs, bombs he wants to unleash on Iran.

But what’s going on in his fevered, short-tempered brain? Not that reveling his -- more than likely redacted medical transcripts -- would be revealed.

But if Johnny’s medical records were laid out for reporters to read, especially reporters with a modicum of medical knowledge, they might pick up on a word or a phrase worthy of putting under a microscope for further medical testing.

Do we really want a football-carrying president who’s known for having a hair-trigger temper sitting in the White House war room?

What if Whatsitstan or Wikistan does something that in McCain’s fetid, fevered mind he considers a-“bomb“-n-able and bomb, bomb, bomb-able?

Johnny “War Monger” can throw caution and bombs to the wind figuring he’s going to die soon anyway, so what the hell difference does it make?
