John McCain's Rage Is A National Security Concern

"I have a temper, to state the obvious, which I have tried to control with varying degrees of success because it does not always serve my interest or the public's." - John McCain

Consider McCain's erratic behavior over the past few weeks: A desperate pick of an extremist, clueless running mate. Contemptuous behavior during the presidential debates. An impulsive campaign suspension gimmick as the economic crisis erupted. A testy interview with the editorial board of the Des Moines Register.

It gets worse. Much worse. McCain is known as a hothead among colleagues on both sides of the aisle and among military leaders. Major General Paul Eaton said, "I am a little worried by his knee-jerk response factor. I think it is a little scary." Pat Buchanan said, "He is in everybody's face. Did you see [Republican Senator of Mississippi] Thad Cochran's comment? He said 'Look, John McCain is a bellicose, red-faced, angry guy who constantly explodes.' "

Brave New Films put out the video above highlighting McCain's disturbing displays of rage. After you watch the video, click on the links below for some chilling reading. Then ask yourself, Do I want this volatile individual in the White House making critical national and international decisions?
