John McCain has missed(not showed up for) 733 votes (most all time missed by anyone in Congress)
That is not a fair assessment. He's been in Congress since your grandmother was born too.
Thats not true..there have been several who have been in longer and RARELY missed a vote..In fact 4 have been in longer and have missed zero votes!
He's a MAVERICK dont you understand!! He's out figting corruption like The Dark Knight.
Curious where you found this?
I do know Obama has missed close to 300 votes in his 2 years. McCain has served for 21 years.
150 per year vs ~35 per year.....
I don't care how many votes either missed via modern day campaigning.
Wait...wasn't this the attack Cheney used against Edwards in the 04 VP debates...
...you're taking attack cues from Cheney now?
Hillary Clinton: $340 million worth of home-state projects in last year's spending bills, placing her among the top 10 Senate recipients of what are commonly known as earmarks, according to a new study by a nonpartisan budget watchdog group. [The group is Taxpayers for Common Sense.]
Barack Obama: $91 million total placed him in the bottom quarter of senators who seek earmarks, the study showed.
John McCain: One of five senators to reject earmarks entirely, part of his long-standing view that such measures prompt needless spending.
How many of the other votes that Obama was there for turned out to be the RNC's (Giuliani specifically) claims that he voted "present" rather than "yea or nay" ? That was disturbing to hear, but considering the Republicans were exaggerating on the number of votes Palin received vs Biden, I would also want to see a source.
The votes McCain missed disturb me just the same too. He was painted as a standup guy/patriot while he was a POW. I'd hate to think he wasn't there to vote. We all have to go to our lousy jobs every day, tell me he wasn't sherking on his responsibility ?
