As I ponder his latest assertion I suddenly see Obama’s claims from a different perspective.
So the RNC turns out great. More people watch McCain’s speech and listen with tears in the eyes to his telling of his experiences as a POW. Over 40 million people hear about a life of service, sacrifice, putting others and country first, and living by an honor code. 40 million people hear that McCain refused to be a PR pawn for the Viet Cong and in doing so suffering torture that resulted in his disabilities today. Over 40 million people heard the real life story of men in the worst of conditions holding each other up. Over 40 million people hear the story of McCain and how his love for his country is to the core and into every corner of his being.
Over 40 million people hear a story of a serviceman who gave his entire being to his country reflecting a patriotism and love of country so deep, so admirable, so moving again that grown men weep and women sob. It creates a new appreciation not just for John McCain but for all members of are armed forces.
So… three days later we get Obama’s newly remembered claim that he was going to join the armed forces, a claim that did not appear in either of his two autobiographies.
Obama disclosed that he had once considered serving in the military.“You know, I actually did,” Obama said. “I had to sign up for Selective Service when I graduated from high school. And I was growing up in Hawaii. And I have friends whose parents were in the military. There are a lot of Army, military bases there.“And I actually always thought of the military as an ennobling and, you know, honorable option. But keep in mind that I graduated in 1979. The Vietnam War had come to an end. We weren’t engaged in an active military conflict at that point. And so, it’s not an option that I ever decided to pursue.”
Obama is trying to tell us that it was the timing of history, the Vietnam war was over, that kept him from being the same patriotic hero that John McCain is.
Could there be a more pathetic insecure narcissist that Barak Obama?I can hear the 3 year old crying me too, me too, me too! Obama has the audacity accuse Palin of re-inventing herself. Palin is authentic. Obama is the most inauthentic politician ever.
And, given George Stephanopoulos asked the question doesn’t this make George just one more useful idiot member of the in the tank for Obama MSM? What would prompt George to ask such a question other than to give Obama the assist in setting up this canard?
I’m not the only one not buying it.
