Gen. Wes Clark interview on Fact the Nation, June 29, 2008

Retired General Wesley Clark, thrown under the bus by Barack Obama earlier in the day, is coming back for a second round of attacks on John McCain.

There are many important issues in this Presidential election, clearly one of the most important issues is national security and keeping the American people safe. In my opinion, protecting the American people is the most important duty of our next President. I have made comments in the past about John McCain’s service and I want to reiterate them in order be crystal clear. As I have said before I honor John McCain’s service as a prisoner of war and a Vietnam Veteran. He was a hero to me and to hundreds of thousands and millions of others in Armed Forces as a prisoner of war. I would never dishonor the service of someone who chose to wear the uniform for our nation.

John McCain is running his campaign on his experience and how his experience would benefit him and our nation as President. That experience shows courage and commitment to our country – but it doesn’t include executive experience wrestling with national policy or go-to-war decisions. And in this area his judgment has been flawed – he not only supported going into a war we didn’t have to fight in Iraq, but has time and again undervalued other, non-military elements of national power that must be used effectively to protect America But as an American and former military officer I will not back down if I believe someone doesn’t have sound judgment when it comes to our nation’s most critical issues.

More ….More…..Wesley Clark is clearly out of line then and now. It is all about Wesley Clark now, isn’t it?

The LEFT may love the attacks -look at the some of the comments at Ben Smith’s blog:

Thank you General Clark, for standing behind your very reasoned assessment of John McCain and his fitness for the Oval office. I for one find McCain’s outrage indicative of the temper we have heard so much about. He does not like to be questioned, he does not like to discuss issues that are not part of his talking points, and he seems to be willing to allow his surrogates to attack the Democratic nominee at will while having absolutely no ability at all to tolerate even the slightest of criticisms. Come to think of it, this whole episode reminds me more and more why McCain is just the flip side of George Bush. Stubborn, inflexible, unwillingess to be questioned, and surrounded by loyal surrogates who do his dirty work for him.

Good for Clark. He didn’t say anything wrong. If you want to take offense, you can take offense at anything. Getting shot down & tortured would not necessarily make you a good president.

Good for you Clark! I hope you didn’t hurt McCain’s feelings.

Good! McCain and GOP opened the door themselves.

And you my dear general have good judgement? Thousands of innocent christens dead, Chinese consulate gone,fired by your boss and demoted by your superiors. Great judgement.

good for you, general clark. the media is afraid to dig more into mccain’s military record. we need somebody like you to push this issue forward.

But, this will NOT play very well with the American voters. Watch Obama RUSH to publicly denounce Wesley Clark tomorrow and take him to the woodshed.

Could John McCain wished for a better 4th of July?

Democrat Senate Majority leader Harry Reid (D-Nevada) proclaims that “coal makes us sick and oil makes us sick…”

Harry Reid who last year proclaimed that the Iraq War was lost now says that coal and oil make us sick.

So, what do you propose Senator lay off all of the coal and oil industry workers and do what?

Nuclear power?

No, you are against that too.

Back to the horse and buggy, and candles I presume……

Governor Palin visits with the Joy Greisen JEC Preschool and Camp at the Congregation Beth Sholom synagogue in Anchorage after signing HB 88 “TVs & Monitors in Motor Vehicles” on June 16, 2008

William Kristol, the founder and editor of the conservative weekly political magazine, The Weekly Standard on Fox News this afternoon raised the prospect of a Sarah Palin nomination as a Vice Presidential running mate for Senator John McCain.

Kristol first raised the prospect of Sarah Palin on Fox News Sunday.

Is this the reason why there was a Mitt Romney for Vice President story in Politico today?

Yep, they are fighting to be named the GOP running mate.

Sen. McCain responds to Gen. Clark’s comments and says that they were unneccessary.

John McCain has responded to retired General Wesley Clark’s remark yesterday:

“I don’t think riding in a fighter plane and getting shot down is a qualification to be president.”

John McCain:

“That kind of thing is unnecessary. I am proud of my record of service, and I have plenty of friends and leaders who will attest to that,” McCain said, adding those sorts of attacks don’t “reduce the price of a gallon of gas by one penny” or help struggling Americans keep their jobs or homes.

McCain is right and Obama is putting out yet another fire.

The Democrats are the masters of the “CHEAP SHOT” and in this case they are not only wrong but mean spirited.

Advantage Team McCain…….
