    Re: Blumenthal's words on Vietnam Service differ from History

    Are you people that are leftist leaning so devoid of character you simply cannot say..."YEP...geez...that was stupid...and its probably gonna cost him..." and then 'move-on'...instead of trying to defend him? Holy crap. He's a scumbag politician. He screwed up. He's not the first. He wont be the last. But you dont have to defend every freqin thing...it just makes you look as bad as he is...no...WORSE...because you KNOW better...

    Good lord....the lengths lefties will go to defend the indefensible is astounding!

    Did you craft a similar delusion excusing Cheney's deferments? Bush's?

    the difference is that unlike blumenthal, they had nothing to exculpate them to excuse their chickenhawk behavior as texmaster has for the democrat

    This is a perfect example of what is wrong with this country today, people simple cannot admit when wrong and allow ideology to trump right and wrong.

    GW Bush was demonized for 8 years starting with the election of 2000. He was never accepted by the far left and demonized at every point. Many Conservatives will never forget that and will use that opportunity to "return the favor" to their Democrat "friends."

    Blumenthal was absolutely wrong in his statements and his acceptance of blame however comes a little late and a dollar short. Claiming "mistatements", plural tells me a lot about this individual and regardless of ideology disqualifies him from my vote IF I were a resident of Connecticut. It has nothing to do with party but everything to do with character.

    I think it goes far deeper than admitting right and wrong. Leftist's seem programmed to uphold "the agenda" at all costs, and use every Alinsky tactic, every opportunity to lie or obfuscate, and every opportunity to savagely insult ideological opposition to that end. Their "Means to an end" methods are as obvious as the hair growing out of the wart on my nose, and the "citizen class" mutiny currently occurring will make for a fine comeuppance come November.

    Don't tell me you think this is one-sided.

    No. We are in two different trains on two different tracks heading for the same depot....one just happens to be a bullet train, and I don't think I need to elaborate on who its engineers are.

    Texmaster is about as far from being a lefty as is possible.
