Does anyone believe for a second that Barack thought about joining the military after High School but didn’t pursue it because the hostilities in Vietnam were over and so there was no combat going on???
So if there had still been some commies to go kill he would have signed up …
I have a hard time picturing him as a warrior. Not having a hot conflict ongoing didn’t deter me from joining in 78.
I know it is kind of simplistic but I look at it like this; who would you rather go into combat with? I don’t see Obama being worth a mouse fart in combat and I certainly don’t see him as being able to cover me. I know that I don’t know him but just looking at him gives me the impression that when the time came, he would not be able to perform or for that matter even show up.
Now Sen. McCain on the other hand, even in his present condition, looks ready to kick ass! I’ve actually worked with him in the early stages of the campaign from back in 07 when it was being done on a shoe string and up to the point when he got Secret Service protection. All the time the guy was carrying his own luggage around!
No pretense or hesitation in him just a ‘get things done’ attitude that I would welcome to have covering me in combat!
