"Beat the rookie with the Veteran"

Monday, June 30, 2008

Left and elected Democrats hatred of the military shines through...

and their lust for power causes them to go past even the worst attacks of the "Swift Boat" veterans of 2004. There are seriously no principles that the left won't sell out in this campaign. When I read these statements, I can't help but think what these people believe about those currently serving in our military. These statements certainly don't "Support the Troops" serving, and don't reflect on a group that should command our military.

A sampling from the article linked above:

"Honestly, besides being tortured, what did McCain do to excel in the military?" - Americablog's John Aravosis.
West Virginia Senator Jay Rockefeller in April cut a bit closer, suggesting that McCain's days as a fighter pilot were themselves a critique of his character.

"What happened when they [the missiles] get to the ground?" he asked. "He doesn't know. You have to care about the lives of people. McCain never gets into those issues."

I wouldn't characterize anybody who fought in Vietnam as a war hero," said Medea Benjamin, a co-founder of the theatrical anti-war group Code Pink. "In 23 bombing sorties, there must have been civilians that were killed and there's no heroism to that."
