"Beat the rookie with the Veteran"

Thursday, May 22, 2008

Apparently Sen. Obama is now a veteran... he's been in "foxholes"...

Interesting cover story in the New York Times today about Jewish voters (esp. in Florida) and their doubts about Sen. Obama's qualification for the office of President of the United States. Less relevant to that story, but relevant to Sen. Obama's penchant for exaggeration and painting himself "patriotic" is this gem:

“I’ve been in the foxhole with my Jewish friends, so when I find on the national level my commitment being questioned, it’s curious,” he said recently in an interview with Jeffrey Goldberg on theatlantic.com.

Wow... really? You were in trenches, with machine gun fire going over your head? Next he'll tell us about his relationship to pillboxes, and he doesn't mean his wife's woman's hat collection. This is really overcompensation for no military service and no foreign policy experience.
