Obama surregate attacks John McCain's military service


Barack Obama's henchman, Wesley Clark is actually attacking John McCain military service.

"In the matters of national security policy making, it's a matter of understanding risk," he said on CBS' "Face the Nation." "It's a matter of gauging your opponents and it's a matter of being held accountable. John McCain's never done any of that in his official positions. I certainly honor his service as a prisoner of war. He was a hero to me and to hundreds of thousands and millions of others in the armed forces, as a prisoner of war.

"He has been a voice on the Senate Armed Services Committee and he has traveled all over the world, but he hasn't held executive responsibility," Clark said. "That large squadron in the Navy that he commanded - that wasn't a wartime squadron."

Moderator Bob Schieffer, who raised the issue by citing similar remarks Clark has made previously, noted that Obama hadn't had those experiences nor had he ridden in a fighter plane and been shot down. "Well, I don't think riding in a fighter plane and getting shot down is a qualification to be president," Clark replied.

The audacity of the Barack Obama camp to send this guy out to attack John McCain military service is stunning.

By the way- according the Obama camp, apparently unless you served in the military during a war, it doesn't count.

What exactly qualifies Barack Obama to be president, since he did not serve one lousy day in the military, much less during war time.
