    WASHINGTON (Reuters) -- Senate Commerce Committee Chairman John McCain blasted airline pilots Thursday for what he called their greed and role in exacerbating gridlock in U.S. skies. </p>


    McCain, a Navy pilot shot down over Vietnam, accused pilots at UAL Corp.'s United Airlines of carrying out "work stoppages to satisfy their personal greed" and noted a sickout by pilots at AMR Corp.'s American Airlines last year. </p>


    He said many parties, including the Federal Aviation Administration and Congress, needed to shoulder the blame for aviation congestion. But he singled out airline pilots for his toughest criticism, going so far as to question their patriotism. </p>


    "This year, more than ever, airline employees have caused enormous delays," said McCain, opening a hearing on air travel delays. </p>


    "And you know what saddens me the most? A large number of these pilots are former military whose code is supposed to be 'duty, honor, country,'" said McCain, who was held prisoner in Vietnam for five-and-a-half years. </p>


    "Now they take action without a thought for the Americans that rely on them to ferry their families across the country for a family vacation, attend a wedding or be at the side of a sick relative." </p>[/quote]

    There you go! Now you know why they are voting Obama...

    However, I don't think that's the only reason, there must be more reasons...

    [quote user="JerseyGiant21"]I wonder if they might postpone the RNC because of Gustav....
    Might not be the best time to have the convention when a hurricane is a comin...esp to an area that is still reeling from Katrina and might be in Gustav's path.....

    [/quote]

    N.O. is just a bad place even when there is no hurricane!!

    The media have been reporting that McCain is having trouble getting people to come to the RNC, I don't know if that's true or not but if it does get postponed, it will give them more time to get people..
