Senator John McCain gets a high five from me for saying what I think the majority of Americans feel...that MoveOn.org and their ilk ought to condemned by their Democrat pals and thrown out of the country on their...uhhh...posteriors.
Speaking in New Hampshire, CBS News caught the old lion trashing MoveOn for the Petraeus ad in no uncertain terms. He displayed the ad and said: "It’s disgraceful, it’s got to be retracted and condemned by the Democrats, and MoveOn.org ought to be thrown out of this country."
Unfortunately, with the ambivalence that characterizes modern politics McCain's campaign issued an `explanation' afterwards:"Senator McCain, like most Americans, is appalled by the MoveOn.org ad. Last night he expressed his outrage in words that did not convey his intended meaning. What he meant to say was that MoveOn's smear of General Petraeus' character should have no place in the American political debate."
I know, First Amendment and all that. But the senator likewise has a right to say what he feels and remember, the US has thrown agitators and saboteurs out of the country before during wartime. Read up on the Vallandigham case sometime.
Meanwhile the majority of Democrats, especially those running for president and commander-in-chief continue to dance to the Angry Left's tune and happily smear a man who's put his life on the line many times to protect their freedom. Not one of them has condemned the ad in the least.
And in the case of Senators Obama and Clinton, this is someone who they voted to confirm as commander in Iraq after an extensive and often insulting grilling on Capitol Hill. If they're right about him being a tool and an idiot, doesn't that say something about their judgement?
Remember that when you vote in November.
