Go Johnny Go!

While John might not be the greatest speaker of all time, he among America's best prepared to lead as President. This book shows just how prepared he is due to his previous life experience. One that shows the quality of the man and the valor of his service.

I wouldn't want him as my copilot

Not a bad book. I guess I enjoyed McCain's recalling of his years at the Naval Academy most of all. But is he a hero? That depends on who you ask. Since I was shot down twice in Vietnam in 1969, I did have some respect for McCain. But after the way he has sucked up to G...
Not a bad book. I guess I enjoyed McCain's recalling of his years at the Naval Academy most of all. But is he a hero? That depends on who you ask. Since I was shot down twice in Vietnam in 1969, I did have some respect for McCain. But after the way he has sucked up to George W. Bush and Jerry Falwell--two men who projected him and his family as garbage during the 2004 primaries--makes me wonder if he was captured or just gave himself up if he tried to escape or just laid there. My heroes are the pilots who avoided being shot down, the ones who escaped capture after being shot down, and the ones who, after being captured, either escaped or was shot in the process of trying to escape. Oh well, since people are still calling Pete Rose and O.J. Simpson heroes, it's a pretty ambiguous term anyway. You best put Rush Limbaugh on your suck up list, John. Remember, you said a lot of nasty things about him and called him a clown. I'm Bob Miller, a registered Republican.

    Faith To Fill A Heart In Anybody

    This book is a compelling story of a young man by the name of John McCain the third, who was captured by the Vietnamese and taken hostage. Before he was taken hostage he talked about how his father was in the Vietnam and trained to be a pilot. His father returned home, but John didn't, he stayed in Vietnam where he was taken as a hostage and physically beat and brutally tortured throughout his stay. He finally escapes through a torturous story and lives to tell this story today. John McCain is the Senator for Arizona and may be running for President this year. This book tells the reader that they should never give up, fight for what you believe in, and to have faith in your country. I liked many parts in this book especially the part when John gets captured, he never thinks about loosing his faith in his country and men, but also has the will to hold his head up high. My only dislike in this book was the beginning when he talked about his Grandfather and what he did in the war. This book was very good and heart warming in the way that McCain never gives up loving his country. If you like heart filling books packed with faith and action this is the book for you!
