(CNN) - Sen. John McCain launched his week-long journey to poverty-stricken areas of the nation Monday with language that would have been at home in any Democratic stump speech.
And it came at a location - the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama - that is inextricably identified with a top congressional Democrat, Georgia Rep. John Lewis.
"I've seen courage in action on many occasions in my life, but none any greater or used for any better purpose than the courage shown by John Lewis and the good people who marched for justice with him," said McCain.
Just call him Charlatan John McCain, a name he justly deserves.
The sky is falling–a Republican goes to Selma, AL and talks about race
and civil rights! Oops, I guess it's just pandering again. Nice try John, but you sure didn't fool anyone.
wait a minute!!! wait one minute this man is talking to impoverished people about how much he cares? well maybe he can donate the $58,000 he recieved in disability last year to some poor people!! him and his wife are worth over $100 million and he has the nerve to still collect disabilty becauase he was a POW?!?! isnt he the guy that is saying how physically fit he is? what kind of patriot that cares about the american people and what we are going through with the economy and housing market milks off the system like that. if your worth more then $100 million what do you need that extra $58k a year for??? get real america
i am for obama but
i seriously love maccain
rather him than witcharry
do you know 'why' McCain has the time to work on putting more states in play????
The best way that McCain can help poor people is to not be one of them because In a change of the Presidency, the poor change nothing, except the President's name.
Yeah right. McCain is a fraud. Go sing some more songs, song bird McLame.
sorry Mccain us democrats will not vote for you!
Hillary or Obama come November!
I am surprised the Dems haven't blasted this yet. Is CNN that slow on posting comments?
Will he reinstate the draft????? When asked he said "I don't think so". Today, it was on CNN that criminals are getting pardons if they join. Isn't this exactly what happened before the draft in Vietnam?
2 GOOD ONES: MICHIGAN & FLORIDA.
It will be truly shocking if a Republican can pick up a red state like Alabama.
GET REAL, you'll be tooooo old next year to even know your name!!!
Why would you want to be our President? Do you not know that this is a lot of bagge? Can you handle this? You need to sit down with your wife and you two discuss this stuff!!

McCain has been so far under the radar in this election. The democrats really have been spending all their money to campaign against each other, mostly not against McCain.
Hopefully we can wrap this thing up today and move forward. Obama 08!
Better start listening to McCain, Obama makes him electable, very electable
Screw McCain. I am sick and tired of all his lies. He's crazy. Say NO to the war and yes to Hillary Clinton.
I applaud Sen. McCain's efforts to travel to high poverty areas of our country. I do not usually respond to the nature of other comments, but the insults leveled at John McCain are disturbing. I am specifically referring to those made against him for his attempts to reach out to those Americans often ignored by politicians. What someone could find negative in this outreach is simply mind-boggling. We may not support the same candidate, but we can remain respectful of one another and our leaders. How do ever expect to achieve any level of civility, much less unity, with such behavior?
They have him touring these states bc he thought that there were only 13 still.
I am supporting Hillary right now but will be jumping on the McCain band wagon if Obama wins the DEM nomination. McCain will work well with the Democrats, should he win the general election.
McCain, you are a true American hero! We need YOUR style of change. The uniter style!
Given the "name recognition" and advances in all the polls at the start of the Democratic primary, if Hillary is still not able to close the deal (even with the help of Bill and Chelsea), that says a lot about the integrity of Hillary's campaign.
1. Super Tuesday was Hillary's day to seal the deal
2. "Come meet in in Texas" was the day for Hillary to seal the deal
3. Big states, including Ohio, was expected to seal the deal for Hillary
Here we are today in PA talking about some "unkown" challenger– Obama–. This man is still "standing." Even if Obama wins this nomination by:
1. 2-3 more delegates
2. 4-5 more popular votes
The world will know that Obama won this Democratic primary.
Has John McCain never heard of the saying "you can't unring a bell"? What a colossal waste of time trying to suck up to people your Republican party has left behind for so many years.
MCWAR will invest in missles and guns
OBAMA will invest in America and Peace
how is it that people are not sick of Bush yet if theyre willing to elect MCWAR?
god help us
McCain is going to need one huge broom to sweep up the broken pieces of what was once a Democratic party.
