Obama's ad campaign now mocking McCain's war injuries...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=28QlxdUqqvg


Here's the full, original ad....

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BdIlzAyueow

McCain can't lift his arms above his chest, which alone, prohibits him from thousands of activities, his fingers were smashed and broken many times during his 5 years as a POW, which disables him from typing and many other activities that involve basic finger movements.

He can't click the send button because he fingers won't let him....

EDIT: I'm not a huge McCain fan, but I am a huge supporter of the men and women who served in our country and I think it's a disgrace to show an ad mocking McCain because he physically can't type or click because of the injuries his sustained while being a POW for 5 years. Just sparks a little fire inside when military members, former and current are mocked.

Bill Burton seems to not know this either...

"When I hear athletes call themselves warriors, it does bother me a little bit. When I think of a warrior, I think of the Marines I've led in combat, those Marines that sacrificed so much...no showers, little food, no contact with their family, all for their love for their brother Marine and for their love for their country. That's a warrior, willing to lay his life on the line. I've had Marines that have laid their lives on the line for the man next to him, and for their family and country. That's a warrior. The guy who goes into some athletic contest who has no war experience, in my eyes, really has no right to call himself that. That's a coveted thing to call someone, and that's what I call my Marines. Those are warriors." - Brian Stann

Where's the mockery? They're not mocking that he can't physically do it, but they are mocking the comments he has made in the past with regard to being technologically impaired, as well as not knowing shit about the economy.

Man, what a let down. The title led me to believe I was in for some mean shit. "John McCain sucks because he was tortured and now has physical disabilities". Something along those lines would have fit the title. The videos you posted made fun of McCain for being an idiot when it comes to technology.

He can't use a computer because of his injuries he sustained back when he was a POW.

From McCain himself...

When you can't lift your arms and hands above your chest and can't use enough pressure in your fingers to type or click a mouse, of course you are going to have to rely on someone to help you with thousands of things. McCain relies on his wife.

Hmm, not being computer literate could be an issue as president. I don't know the day to day details of the job but it seems like it could be a problem.

I don't think questioning that is insulting to him. I think your a bit to invested in defending soliders actually.

I don't believe that this is possible. Soldiers defend me, I defend them. That is all.

Are you insane?

McCain doesn't use computers because he chooses not to, end of story.

And I'm not sure how you're attributing his self-admitted ignorance of the economy to his POW injuries.
