Much ado about nothing..................
Everyone is re-acting to everyone else re-acting over nothing.
Hillary is gone or the Democratic Party is, and perhaps the whole nation.
Now if the people of this country want to see a 71 year old man, with beginning signs of some type of dementia, who, by his own admmission, doesn't know squat about economics while we face the biggest economic collapse since the Great Depression and whoose only qualifiications for president are being a prisoner of war during Vietnam, after getting himself shotdown in a Navy jet and getting the crap kicked out of him on a daily or semi-daily basis for 5 years (something no one ever gets over, and that is far more significant than many of his supporters seem to realize) and his sevice on various, pertinent senate committees, plus several well-covered trips to today's war zones, then they should just pray the Dimbulbs keep on squabbling about nothing and we may very well get just that.
I would be the last person on earth who would care if both our political parties suddenly vansihed from the face of the earth. Perhaps then, we could develop some parties that made sense and stood firmly and honestly for something.
But now is not the time for the dems to implode!
More outrage: Bill Clinton and Gen. McPeak
Retired Air Force Gen. Merrill McPeak, an Obama surrogate, responded to Bill Clinton's Friday remarks — where some took Clinton to be commenting on Obama's patriotism by saying a Hillary-McCain matchup would be between "two people who love this country" — by launching a new salvo in the umbrage war."I grew up, I was going to college when Joe McCarthy was accusing good Americans of being traitors, so I've had enough of it," McPeak said yesterday, according to the AP.
The Clinton campaign brought up McPeak in a conference call today. Clinton spokesman Phil Singer told reporters "to ask why the Obama campaign brings Gen. McPeak out on the campaign trail." Gen. McPeak got in a bit of trouble about six weeks ago when he told the Los Angeles Times that Obama "doesn't go on television and have crying fits; he isn't discovering his voice at the age of 60.
"Singer tried to also frame McPeak's presence as a strike against Obama's national security experience, saying that after the February comments, "the Obama campaign then proceeded to keep Gen. McPeak off the campaign trail until voters made their doubts about Barack Obama's readiness to be commander in chief known."The AP reported that McPeak, when asked today about the McCarthy line, joked, "occasionally I say something a little earthier."The Obama campaign sent out a mass e-mail earlier this afternoon highlighting an exchange from a 1992 debate between Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush where Clinton said, "Your father was right to stand up to Joe McCarthy. You were wrong to attack my patriotism. I was opposed to the war but I love my country and we need a president who will bring this country together, not divide it."
CORRECTION: An earlier version of this item incorrectly attributed the comments of Phil Singer to a different Clinton aide.
