Anything for political gain, so goes the play book of the Democratic handpickedbytheDNC nominee. Today he tells everyone under that 'hope' and 'change' bus to scrunch together and make room for General Wesley Clark.
ohBambi denounced and rejected Clark's comment from a weekend interview that being a prisoner of war is not a qualification for the presidency. (On a practical level it seems a reasonable statement to me. Is Barry saying it is a qualification? I just wanna be clear on what qualifies here...)
The comments of General Clark came in an interview on CBS Sunday when Clark suggested McCain's experience as a prisoner of war did not alone provide the necessary experience to set the country's national security policies.
""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. And he has traveled all over the world. But he hasn't held executive responsibility," said Clark, a former NATO commander.Today Obama said, "No one should ever devalue that service, especially for the sake of a political campaign..." So Clark's general but factual comment that being a prisoner is not a qualification for the presidency, is being retorted by Obama, is this correct? Sooooooo, according to ohBambi, being a prisoner of war is a qualification? I just want to be clear on this.
"We must always express our profound gratitude for the service of our men and women in uniform...", Obama stated.Is that not twisting and generalizing the comment by Gen Clark made during an interview? What does appreciating and showing gratitude to our military have to do with Clark's statement on being a prisoner being a sole qualification for the presidency? Unless ohBambi is saying this is a qualification... We must be very clear on what he meant with his statement denouncing Wesley Clark before he flip flops on it.
In the meantime, move over grandma, Wright, Ayers, Illinois vets, Trinity Church, Pfleger, and all you other mutha's under that bus.. squeeze yoe self's together now cuz more peeps are surely a comin' as this campaign moves forward.
Update: Oh Boo Hoo - talk about making a mountain out of a mole hill..
General Wesley Clark's actual comment was, "I don't think riding in a fighter plane and getting shot down is a qualification to be president." Leave it to the Obama-media to distort the facts here and blow this up into some nonsense that doesn't even deserve a headline here, much alone all over the cable news.
