    No, he misspoke about it. Lied would require intentionally fabricating it, which there is no proof of.

    I don't know what this tantrum your throwing is over. But the only guy here who claimed to have gone to war and didn't was Blumenthal, your mouth foaming personal attacks simply make you look foolish given the obvious suspension of belief a partisan hack like yourself would have to have to believe this was a simple mistake....


    I am embarrassed for you.

    So Blumenthal forgot he never served in Vietnam? Go with that one, it's the funniest.

    Which has nothing to do with Blumenthal lying.

    And so on the flip side I take it you've never accused Bush of lying?

    Also, care to poitn out a specific misspeak you're talking about where it seems clear he's intending to say something that is 100% not true? You asked if we should list them, sure...lets see the ones you're talking about.

    Again, that was a misspeak by him, but then your conservative partisan hack comments show through brightly.

    How does it make me a partisan hack to call out a fake war vet? One who is living off the honor of others. You are the one defending him simply due to his "D" next to his name...

    Hack, is your badge, wear it proudly.



    BTW Both times?


    ďWhen we returned from Vietnam, I remember the taunts, the verbal and even physical abuse we encountered,



    This one too?


    that's 3.




    I'm not embarrassed for you, I am ashamed of you.



    Your the one putting politics over your own service.... If there is any shame, its you and blumenthal....

    I'm sorry, let me use the correct phrases.

    Blumenthal mislead, ignored key evidence, and overstated his time in Vietnam

    And yet you continually blind yourself to the fact that this is not about one particular speech. This is about a series of incidents in which he made the same claims, from a guy who has obviously not had a problem lying about his other accomplishments, e.g. Captain of the Harvard Swim Team.

    Did you believe that then? Do you believe that now?

    The support among Dems for this guy is eerily similar to Clinton-Lewinsky. Some will defend anything.

    3 of the first 10 posts in this thread are liberals condemning him. More condemned him further in.
