John McCain vs. Mrs. Obama:


Gen. Wesley Clark, acting as a surrogate for Barack Obama’s campaign, invoked John McCain’s military service against him in one of the more personal attacks on the Republican presidential nominee this election cycle. Clark said that McCain lacked the executive experience necessary to be president, calling him “untested and untried” on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” And in saying so, he took a few swipes at McCain’s military service. After saying, "I certainly honor his service as a prisoner of war. He was a hero to me and to hundreds of thousands and millions of others in the armed forces, as a prisoner of war," he added that these experiences in no way qualify McCain to be president in his view:

“He has been a voice on the Senate Armed Services Committee. And he has traveled all over the world. But he hasn’t held executive responsibility. That large squadron in the Navy that he commanded — that wasn't a wartime squadron,” Clark said. “I don’t think getting in a fighter plane and getting shot down is a qualification to become president.”

(Ok, once again it’s business as usual. Well when I was a young man I went through an E and E course, and brothers and sisters after those fun love guys got a hold of me, I was singing like a bird.

This fuckin shit is a play right out of the Swift Boat campaign book, I thought with all this high minded shit we might be in for something different. But no, we have the same two parties working to keep all of us divided. I would rather they it get together and man up. Attack policy not the person(s), we deserve better. )
