GRANDPA SENATOR JOHN McCAIN: SIMPLY TOO OLD!
How would you feel waking up one morning to learn that "President" Grandpa Senator John McCain has slept on due to rigors of the office? Would you not have a perpetual tinge of guilty feelings for being partly responsible for his demise because you voted for him to be president? Is the uncertainty and infirmities of old age not enough to dissuade your vote for Senator John McCain? If not, why not? Do you really love this country or are you just in it for the prank of forcing an old man, who has been drawing on social security these past seven years, on the country as their president? Do you really believe he can deliver knowing the rigors of the office and how the office is an aging-machine which shows no mercy to its occupants? At 72 years plus old, Senator John McCain will simply be made a mince meat/hamburger by the office; so WHY? Even Grandpa Senator John McCain himself, admitted that he is too old for the office. In his own very words, while responding to a Jim Lehrer's question, ssometime after 2000 election (attached as comment here) John McCain said "Well, in 2004, I expect to be campaigning for the reelection of President George W. Bush, and by 2008, I think I might be ready to go down to the old soldiers home and await the cavalry charge there"
Why then one may ask, is this very ancient man being forced on America as her president when more energetic and well qualified youth is offering himself for the service for fatherland? Is Grandpa Senator John McCain being drafted just to possibly give up the ghost in the White-House for us to bear a national burial of a seating president?
Recently in New Hampshire, while visiting Concord High School a student asked McCain if he was worried that being so old might cause him to die in office or get Alzheimer’s disease? To which Grandpa Senator John McCain responded “I work 24/7, I’m very active, and people will judge by the rigor and enthusiasm of our campaign”
It will be noted that Senator John McCain as usual just parried this question and failed to provide the answer being elicited by the question - being so old and possibly dying in office or afflicted with memory loss; and the matter of picking the Alaskan beauty queen as his running mate does not array this palpable fear in the minds of many Americans! Can you imagine dementia and the nuclear ball possible co-existence within the same person? Grandpa Senator John McCain, when will you come clean before American people and tell them in a simple narrative why a man whose prime has past, now thinks that he can provide America a leadership of the future? It is perplexing as it is astonishing! Can anyone teach a rigidly set in his ways, Grandpa John McCain any new thing? This is a man who was born before microwave oven was invented; a man who was born before the Internet and who admitted he does not know how to click a mouse; a man who shares almost the same birthday with the Golden gate bridge; a man who still lives and dwells in memory of 40 year old prison experience as a prisoner of war and you wonder, does it mean since forty years ago, Senator John McCain has not done any other thing worthy of any mention? Why dwell in a past which everyone has since acknowledged or is he on a sympathy mission? Senator John McCain is a man whose time has since past indeed! Why would America now entrust her future in this ancient man whose days are numbered and who does not have any meaningful future to work for? So many jokes has been made about John McCain's' very advanced age and this fact is being glossed over by the media because he fits the designated pedigree! This taciturn by the media about Senator John McCain's old age and possible infirmities Icheoku thinks, is not a healthy development; and his being goaded to the White-House is putting him on a fast lane to the beyond. Please help save Senator John McCain from an early home-call, do not vote for him for president. It is a honor and mercy call America which Icheoku hopes America will heed and spare our one time war hero, the denial of his golden years. Think Alzheimer's, don't vote for Senator John McCain! Think dementia, don't vote for Senator John McCain! Think diaper-wearing in the Oval office, don't vote for Senator John McCain! Think of sleeping through an international meetings, don't vote for Senator John McCain! Think about the rigors of the office, don't vote for Senator John McCain! Think about your aged loved ones and the difficulties of their advanced age, don't vote for Senator John McCain! Think of possible drooling in office, don;t vote for Senator John McCain! If you are such a partisan hack and cannot come around to voting for the other guy, then be merciful and show mercy to old Grandpa Senator John McCain; please save him from himself and stop him from going into the White-House! His very advanced age will simply not allow him to perform to the best of his abilities therein - it is a very demanding job only suitable for the vibrant and the youthful! It is not a job for old men and Senator John McCain is an old man! Grandpa Senator John McCain should instead be scouting for a comfortable senior home to spend his fast approaching golden age where he can live out his life in peace and harmony! At this point in his time, Senator John McCain should be planning on how to live a life in retirement instead of asking to be hired by the American people for the top job in the land! Please America, join the senator from New York, Hillary Rodham Clinton in chorusing No how! No way! No McCain! No Palin!
