While appearing on CBS’s Face the Nation yesterday, General Wesley Clark said of Sen. John McCain:
“I don’t think riding in a fighter plane and getting shot down is a qualification to be president.” [Wowsers]
As if that wasn’t enough, he went on to say that McCain had never held “executive responsibility” or led troops in wartime.
When asked if he was aware of the military qualifications “option B” had, Wes, who’s goes to bed praying that Obama picks him for Veep, regurgitated this line:
Obama is “running on the strength of his character and good judgment…”
Glad to see the General logged onto BarackObama.com to get his updated talking points.
If you’re wondering if the GOP snapped back, yup, they did.
RNC’s Brian Rogers: “If Barack Obama’s campaign wants to question John McCain’s military service, that’s their right. But let’s please drop the pretense that Barack Obama stands for a new type of politics. The reality is he’s proving to be a typical politician who is willing to say anything to get elected, including allowing his campaign surrogates to demean and attack John McCain’s military service record.”
