WASHINGTON (CNN) - Republican presidential candidate John McCain, who almost always refuses to speak on the campaign trail about his son serving in the military, got a rousing reception Wednesday when he told a private gathering of House Republican congressman that his son Jimmy - whose Marine unit had been deployed to Iraq - had arrived home from safely.
have you guys seen the youtube video of a obama campaign office with the castro picture and flag?
obama is a flake
Glad to learn his son is home safe and hope he won't have to do one or two more full tours of duty.
if senator mccain gets condaleeza rice as his vp, i will vote for mccain over obama...if he is the democratic nominee....big time
and i am a democrat
Sheehan's son Casey and thousen of Marine like him come Back Home From Iraq body back.invading Iraq was not the all-important to me.
Good...now just how many more kids does McCain have to
last his planned 100 years there?
Senator McCain – I am glad your son is safe back at home. Thank him for his service, from one grateful citizen, and for carrying on the proud tradition of your family. God bless him, and God bless you – McCain in 08.
I am glad his son is home too. Other parents are not so fortunate. We still had five soldiers die this past weekend. Others are proud to be serving, but can't wait to return home, including my husband.
Sincere congratulations to you on your son's safe return John McCain. It is good to see the overall security improving in Iraq.
Regardless of differences in whether or not we should have gone into Iraq we are there. We all need to remember to say OUTSTANDING JOB to all our troops and their commanders once in awhile. We all love our troops!
We are a really sad nation if the best we can do is to get candidates who are knee deep in the 1970's, or who is trying to following in their spouses footsteps and count these as creditable people.
People say Obama is light on "ideas" that's because they didn't catch the concept that politics as usual will no longer work. We need new direction in the country.
Hillary had a chance to run after her husband, and she had her chance to push all the causes she wanted. What happen??? She doesn't need to be President to push the agenda for Universal Healthcare. So why didn't her plan succeed before when her husband was president?
I'm glad his son is home safe as well.
I absolutely agree. My father retired from the US Army after serving over 20 year. However, I still believe our war efforts should have been soley focused in Afganistan.
How are they going to run against Jimmy McCain?
Seems like the Obama forgot what he is running against.
If Jimmy McCain says Irag is so safe he was handing out soccer balls he must be living in the delusional state his father is.
Glad his son got home safe..and I am sure this is another reason why we should elect him.
Thank you Jimmy McCain. Thank you John McCain...
I also served in OIF, but in phase III. Glad to have your son back safely. If Hillary does not get the nomination, McCain will definitely get my vote.
John McCain is a good man, and a fine American.
I just do not think he would make a good president
All I can say is, Hillary - You Lose!
How man other sons of other American parents are still in Iraq and how many other sons will not come back at all.
Not only does he talk the talk, but the family walks the walk. I don't understand the thinking of the CPAC, John McCain is more conservative than George Bush. Why don't they focus on telling Mike Huckabee to get with the program, his time is not now!
Great timing his son comes back just in time to tell everyone what a wonderful job we are doing overseas. He should be great for McCain and all the people who agree we should be there.
See how he does if his son gets" WATERBOARDED" Witch McCain voted for torcher today
I have a lot of respect for this senator. If barack is not in the general election my vote is going to the senator from arizona.
Even though I totally disagree with John McCain on the Iraq issues, he totally has my respects. He is a good man.
