It's The Character, Stupid

Kathleen Parker makes an excellent point concerning Gen. Wesley Clark's unfortunate comments regarding John McCain's military service.

Specifically of refusal to be released by the Vietcong because he was the son of an admiral while his fellow POWs stayed behind.

"It may not take much effort to get shot down, but it must take a considerable act of will to consign oneself to more deprivation and torture. It must take a level of courage unknown to most to place concern for others above one's own interest."

Barry Hussein Obama has gone on record as denouncing these disgusting attacks on McCain’s service. But, just as with the Race Card and every manufactured controversy that has come up from his camp, in reality he gives his filthy surrogates tactile approval of this crap with a wink and a nod. Obama is a scumbag. And he never served in the American Military.

You mean, tacit approval. Tactile approval would leave fingerprints.

Give it up, DD.

For years now we’ve been hearing shrill dishonest weeping from the Left that one must have served in the military in order to conduct war (or even speak on the subjest, per the Michael Moore Standard). They even call our President a "chicken hawk" for his not serving in battle. -Never mind he did his time and served honorably in the Nat Guard. Now, suddenly, when we have a Repub war hero running against an Affirmative Action Candidate that never served, suddenly military experience is discounted, unimportant, completely meaningless.

I hope all the Middle folks are paying attention to all this dishonest gamesmanship the LibDems have built this campaign on the past eight years.

I guess by "executive experience" Clark means voting "present" 140 times in the Illinois state legislature.

So Obama's executive experience amounts to his doing the bidding of Planned Parenthood and other liberal-left special interest "groups" in the Illinois state legislature by voting "Present" 140 times.

OK. I got it.
