Obama Camp: Getting Shot Down in a Fighter Jet and Being Tortured for Five Years is Like No Big Deal
Not a good move when your candidate’s closest military hat hanger includes a great uncle who liberated the wrong concentration camp… or something like that.
Here’s Obama talking head, General Wesley Clark (which BTW wasn’t a gaffe, but a coordinated effort on a national broadcast) criticizing John McCain’s military background:
“I don’t think getting in a fighter plane and getting shot down is a qualification to become president.”
So a man who fought for his country; showed the courage to withstand 5 years of torture; and even refused release is not qualified to be Commander in Chief. But a community organizer (i.e. shakedown artist) is?
Imagine if the tables were turned, and Obama was the POW fighter pilot, and a Republican had uttered this crap. The outrage from the likes of Chrissy, Olberdork, and old Jack would be amped for weeks.
UPDATE: MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell does her best to innoculate Obama from criticism. Clark was just “freelancing” (on a must-watch Sunday morning talk show) after all… And Obama had no idea what went on in Trinity for 20 years too. Yup. I buy it.
RELATED: Interestingly, the photo above was sourced from an OCommie user at Flickr. The pic is titled “John McCain, war hero…not” with the following laughable descrip:
John McCain being rescued by North Vietnamese after his plane was shot out of the sky as he was on a mission to kill more innocent men, women and children.
Note that he was rescued, not captured. These Obama people are truly insane.
