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

John McCain this evening in route to Columbia has escalated the Wesley Clark FLAP to a higher level. McCain has told Barack Obama that he should “cut him loose.”

Sen. John McCain appeared to raise the stakes in the ongoing back-and-forth over Wesley Clark’s controversial comments, saying Tuesday evening that Barack Obama should “cut him loose.”

Speaking to reporters on his press plane en route to Colombia, McCain suggested it’s time for the Illinois senator to completely sever ties with the former general and onetime presidential candidate

“I think it’s up to Senator Obama now to not only repudiate him but cut him loose.”

The comments last Sunday and reiterated today on ABC’sGood Morning America are bull shit and McCain has the right to call Obama and Clark out.

Obama has not been pressed to absolutely repudiate Wesley Clark and may be afraid to do so since the LEFT has been applauding Clark’s comments.

But, just like the Jeremiah Wright flap this will NOT go away until Obama yet again throws a supporter under the bus.

Now, who will be the next Democrat lackey to attack McCain’s military record. Senators James Webb, Jay Rockefeller and George McGovern have already been used up.

Again, highlighting the fact that Barack Obama has NO military experience.

Webb and Obama

Senators Barack Obama and James Webb

Team McCain is pushing back on the Senator James Webb attack on the McCain military record last night on MSNBC.

McCain spokesperson Brian Rogers:

“If you didn’t think this was a coordinated attack on John McCain’s credentials before, it’s clear now that it is. Barack Obama’s surrogates are telling the McCain campaign to “calm down” about attacks on his military record? Seriously? Now somehow Wes Clark’s attacks are John McCain’s fault? It’s absurd. If Barack Obama can’t control his own surrogate operation, how can he be trusted to run the country?”

Greg Sargent et. al. from the LEFT may believe that this eighth attack of the McCain military record is not a concerted and organized effort to impugn McCain but the record is clear. And Webb’s apologies from a spokesperson are ridiculously predictable.

Who will be the next hit and run Democrat lackey to go after McCain’s military record? Jay Rockefeller and George McGovern have already been used.

All of this discussion about McCain’s military and war record highlights the fact that Barack Obama has NO military experience.

Dr. Roy S Shelburne and dental student (VCU) son Ross

In a shocking reversal of fortune, Virginia dentist, Dr. Roy S. Shelburne had seven of his ten jury convictions for money laundering vacated today.

In a stunning decision, a federal judge today vacated all seven jury convictions of a Pennington Gap, Va., dentist for money laundering.

James P. Jones, chief judge for the Western District of Virginia, upheld three convictions of Roy Shelburne for racketeering, structuring a financial transaction and defrauding Medicaid.

Jones’ opinion filed today pointedly rejected the government’s construction of the money laundering statute, which the U.S. Supreme Court interpreted last month, and highlighted the complexity of the case by setting aside seven of the jury’s convictions.

Dr. Shelburne will be sentenced on the remaining three convictions on July 10. Obviously a United States Supreme Court decision on June 2nd affected the law in this case.

Stay tuned…..

Barack Obama Pro- Gay political brochure

In a policy reversal Barack Obama has come out against The Limit on Marriage Constitutional Amendment, Proposition 8 which will be on California’s November Presidential ballot.

Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, who previously said the issue of gay marriage should be left up to each state, has announced his opposition to a California ballot measure that would ban same-sex marriages.

In a letter to the Alice B. Toklas LGBT Democratic Club read Sunday at the group’s annual Pride Breakfast in San Francisco, the Illinois senator said he supports extending “fully equal rights and benefits to same-sex couples under both state and federal law.”

“And that is why I oppose the divisive and discriminatory efforts to amend the California Constitution, and similar efforts to amend the U.S. Constitution or those of other states,” Obama wrote.

Obama had previously said he opposes same-sex marriage but that each state should make its own decision.

John McCain last week endorsed Proposition 8.

So, what does this mean in California?

Probably not much in the Presidential contest since California is a blue state where Obama should win handily. But, this may affect down Presidential ticket races like the Tony Strickland vs. Hannah-Beth Jackson California State Senate race. Strickland supports the constitutional ban on gay marriage and Jackson opposes it and favors gay marriage.

A direct contrast between Obama and McCain on the gay marriage issue will drive more evangelical and other Christian groups to the polls. Also, it will aid the GOP and the Strickland campaign in fundraising.

Flap is positive that the California Democrat Party would have desired Obama to stay out of this gay marriage fray. But, now that he has weighed in AND flip-flopped his position they will have to defend it.

Advantage GOP.
