McCain Is An Angry Man

Do we really want someone with this kind of temper in the White House?

John McCain engaged in a physical confrontation in 1987 with a left-wing Sandinista leader during a diplomatic meeting in Nicaragua, according to one of his colleagues, Sen. Thad Cochran, a Mississippi Republican.

Notably mild-mannered, Cochran startled many people earlier this year with comments about McCain's volatile temper, but has since mended fences with the presumptive Republican presidential nominee.

Still, Cochran told the Sun Herald of Biloxi, Miss., on Monday that he'd witnessed a confrontation between McCain and a Sandinista leader that shocked him, in which McCain "got mad at the guy and he just reached over there and snatched him."

The president of the United States shouldn't be "snatching" people, particularly foreign leaders he's angry at.
