Obviously this McPeak goober knows nothing about McCarthyism!
This McPeak goofball apparently doesn't even remember his own childhood very well:
McPeak, a co-chairman of Obama's campaign, then said to his Oregon audience: "As one who for 37 years proudly wore the uniform of our country, I'm saddened to see a president employ these tactics. He of all people should know better because he was the target of exactly the same kind of tactics."
Wow, what's wrong with this guy? What the heck has he been smoking? That's positively absurd!
I remind you that this is what Bill Clinton said:
"I think it would be a great thing if we had an election year where you had two people who loved this country and were devoted to the interest of this country. And people could actually ask themselves who is right on these issues, instead of all this other stuff that always seems to intrude itself on our politics."
Does that really sound like Bill Clinton is questioning Obama's patriotism? I mean, come on, really. Now I'm sure the moron running Buzzflash these days would think so but, honestly, would anybody else on the planet Earth?
I'm assuming that, in keeping with what's happened with earlier outrages, this guy will be stepping down from his position shortly. This is as outrageous as anything I've read so far.
Now, before the Obama folks go after me, I'd be perfectly happy with either candidate getting the nomination but what McPeak, Obama's co-chair, said really goes beyond the pale.
BTW, if Obama really allows the continuation of the disfranchisement of Michigan and Florida from the nomination process, he's going to lose those states in November -- and I don't see how he wins without at least one of them.
I can't believe the Obama folks are actually in favor of disfranchising two states. That's stupid, folks. I honestly do have to wonder about the judgement of someone who would do that. I really do.
Okay, I just had to say all of that.
Now you can go about your usual business.
