Carter: McCain ‘milking’ POW time
I’m sorry but I’ve come to expect more from ex-presidents than this!
Are we to believe the campaign that continually speaks with a noun, a verb, and “change”, the campaign that was going to reject the “politics of the past” and elevate public discourse will now go after John McCain’s POW experience every time McCain is asked about it?
Bob Beckle, a former Carter aid was on FOX this morning, unable to defend this low class, no class comment. He termed it,”unfortunate” … unfortunate! Excuse me, is this the change we can expect?
Looks like Obama’s people took a page out of Republicans play book. I’m from Georgia, where the Republicans trashed Max Cleland in his Senate race against Saxby Chambliss. Cleland is a Viet Nam veteran that sits in a wheel chair, missing both legs and part of an arm!
Let’s get this straight once and for all. Dissing a man or a woman’s military experience (sans a dishonorable discharge) should be rejected & condemned in the strongest possible terms! There is no place for it in politics. This kind of behavior is despicable and demeaning, and as my mother used say, “be careful the negative comments you are tempted to give aren’t a reflection of you! President Carter the McCain POW comments are a negative reflection of you.
Mr. Obama it’s time for you tell your troops, all of your surrogates, the kind folks at MSNBC, and anyone else tempted to slam John McCain’s POW experience that you reject and condemn ex-President Carter’s comments.
For the record; America doesn’t want to hear General Petras getting slammed, or General Wes Clark, or Max Cleland, John McCain, or anyone else that has served this country with honor.
President Carter, you should be ashamed of yourself and you owe America and John McCain an apology. Miss Lillian would not be proud.
