He was a crappy Governor and an even worse Federal bureaucrat.

Nonetheless, prayers for his recovery.

Worst choice ever for DHS Sec. Unacceptably RINO positions.

But he served our nation in Vietnam, and earned: a Bronze Star with "V" Device, National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Service Medal, Republic of Vietnam Gallantry Cross with palm, Republic of Vietnam Gallantry Cross Unit Citation with Palm, Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal, and the Combat Infantryman Badge.

PRAYERS UP.

So did John Kerry. John McCain served in North Vietnam, however.

Huge disappointment as PA governor. Seemed like he spent most of his time after he wimped out on his agenda attempting to make himself ‘look like’ vice-presidential candidate. He never got more than a cursory look.
