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

    he was careless
    but the fact is that blumenthal IS a veteran of the vietnam era, with half a year at parris island to show for it
    his DD214 will reflect that fact
    ... he served as a member of the United State Marine Corps Reserve during the Vietnam era ...
    looks like a ripe opportunity to compare how blumenthal comported himself to that politically connected flyboy who protected texas from the viet cong until he got too coked up to report to the flight surgeon for his qualifying physical, and let's also compare military credentials with the fellow who would become the shrub's VP

    yes, let's do continue this discussion and these comparisons
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    Careless is using the wrong word or being a little to harsh. An outright lie however, on multiple occasions without a correction over YEARS... is another thing. And if I remember correctly, the "shrub" actually flew a plane and to my knowledge didn't claim he shot down the Cong while on a drinking binge... all of which in this context is irrelevant but please, continue to try and derail this and defend this guy's outright blatant and conscious lie in public. It's entertaining as hell.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    There's a huge difference from saying "Since I served during the Vietnam era" and "since the days that I served in Vietnam".

    yes, he was careless. and quite possibly, intentionally so, to puff his cv
    but i find those who defended the chickenhawks like cheney and the service record of the shrub hypocritical when they now want to take pot shots at blumenthal

    That's not careless, it's lying.

    I don't see anyone defending Cheney here.

    Bush claimed he served in Vietnam or are you trying too hard again to bring bush into an irrellevant discussion?

    What an ass, so he lied where he served in order to score point.

    Careless?



    D00d lied about his service. He's pretty much a fraud who deserves a punch in the mouth. Bush didn't lie about his service, and yet you want to compare the two?


    Shameful.

    Maybe he once worked as a waiter in a restaurant in Vietnam? Then you could say it was "careless".
