“…Everybody admires John McCain's service as a fighter pilot, his courage as a prisoner of war. There's no issue there. He's a great man and an honorable man. But having served as a fighter pilot -- and I know my experience as a company commander in Vietnam--that doesn't prepare you to be commander-in-chief in terms of dealing with the national strategic issues that are involved. It may give you a feeling for what the troops are going through in the process, but it doesn't give you the experience first hand of the national strategic issues…”
Gloria Steinem went further. Speaking of what the press might say to a woman POW, Steinem said:
'What did you do wrong to get captured? What terrible things did you do while you were there as a captive for eight years?' "Steinem said, to laughter from the audience. “…"I am so grateful that she [Clinton] hasn't been trained to kill anybody. And she probably didn't even play war games as a kid. It's a great relief from Bush in his jump suit and from Kerry saluting…"
Wesley Clark, a retired general, doesn’t know the difference between a bomber and a fighter yet he has the ‘nads to dis' John McCain? How did Clark spend all that time in the military without learning the difference between an A-4 and an F-4? At his level, such ignorance is stupefying, yet he claims to be the military expert to help guide a Hillary Clinton presidency. The loathsome, professional man-hater Steinem needs no further comment. Her comments about being a prisoner of war are as hateful and ignorant as any uttered in American politics in the past 40 years. Every time she appears in public she simply reinforces her earned image as a bitter old Marxist with nothing to say and no legacy except philosophical extinction.
Ms. Clinton should have been able to do far better than showcase support from an old woman choking on her own bile and a retired general officer who, with every utterance, raises more questions about how he was able to achieve such high rank.
