Anyway because he was for repealing the Act had nothing to do with his political views. He was in fact a Hero !! A hero is NOT defined by politics. It is defined by Deed.
Attempting to repeal an act that protects American jobs and shipbuilding from unfair foreign competition has nothing to do with his political views? How do you figure that?
You are right about one thing. What he did in war sure doesn't reflect on what he did in peacetime. How could he fight so hard against the forces that would seek to destroy freedom, but then go and do their work for them in political office? As far as I'm concerned whatever respect he earned by his deeds prior are forever tainted by his deeds while supposedly representing the American people in office. And yes, the things you do as a politician are deeds.
