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.
“I don’t think getting in a fighter plane and getting shot down is a qualification to become president.”
Is this hilarious or what? This guy sits next to and endorses Obama Hussain who is the least qualified presidential nominee for as long as I can remember and attacks McCain. I hate to say it but Wesley the charming General is more qualified to be president than the Obama the affirmative action nominee.
I looked at the posts I wrote back in 2004 when Wesley Clark was running for president. Here is one dated September 18, 2003:
Do you want to know how liberals think? Listen to what Wesley Clark supporters are saying. These are from a Fort Smith Times Record news story.
“Wesley Clark is like a breath of fresh air,...He’s like a messiah come to deliver our country from the chaotic situation we’re in. He’s going to lead our country out of that. ... He’d make an excellent leader.”
“He has fought a big war without losing a single man compared to what we got going on now,...”
“He’s highly educated and he’s the best thing that’s happened since (former President) Bill Clinton as far as I’m concerned,...”
Does that ring a bell? That post was titled "More Liberal Looniness". These are the same things loony liberals saying about their new "Messiah" Obama.
Well the new liberal Messiah Obama tried to distance himself from the old Messiah Wesley by saying "I will never question the patriotism of others in this campaign. And I will not stand idly by when I hear others question mine."
Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama said Monday he will never question others' patriotism during the race and blames his own "carelessness" for some criticism of him so far.
Obama sought to reassure voters about his commitment to the country, choosing the aptly named town of Independence as his backdrop.
First on a side note, notice the goofy liberal symbolism: Obama meets with Hillary in Unity, and talks about patriotism in Independence. What is next?
Second, notice how he changes the subject to himself and others questioning his patriotism. Instead of chiding the old messiah for his disgusting remark he changes the focus to other people who questioned Obama's patriotism in the past. As liberal journalists (phony media members) would say: "What a smart move. Marvelous!"
Obama even wears a flag pin on his lapel now. When he was courting the liberals he said "he no longer wears an American flag lapel pin because it has become a substitute for 'true patriotism' since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks." I wonder what changed now. Maybe he thinks he just needs to sport some "fake patriotism" to get elected.
I also wonder if he would be able to stomach standing at attention when the national anthem is played.
Yes folks, Wesley Clark, the liberal messiah in 2004 election who is the General Liberal Charming and Obama Hussein, the liberal messiah in 2008 election who is a true patriot who just feel the need to fake it, do think Jon McCain, a true war hero is not qualified to be the President of the United States of America.
