    Just ANOTHER example of what lying P.O.S.'s politician's really are.

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

    The timing of the well crafted expose' of this lying loser is predictable. What are we...about 6 months away from Nov.? Since I seriously doubt he'll withdraw...or Libs will require him to, this will all be labeled "old news" and "unimportant" as the election nears....

    Blumenthal acted shamefully. It's sad to see politicians abusing military service in order to look good. I think it's hilarious how he claims he wasn't truly lying

    yes, let's do continue this discussion and these comparisons
    BDS is strong with you

    Bush never claimed to be an ace

    Never claimed to have served in Vietnam

    and the bush-cheney ticket had far more military service than the two clowns who hold those offices now

    The dem party is based on a lie

    rich elitists claiming they want to help the poor is the biggest lie foisted upon the USA in our history

    GOP types don't try to keep the poor poor while telling them they are gonna make them rich

    They tell the rich that they are gonna keep the government from stealing more of the wealth

    You know what - you're right. I think GWB is unlikely to win the CT Senate race this year, much like Blumenthal. Good point.

    Why did I bring Dick Cheney up, you ask? Because there is a difference between Cheney and Blumenthal. Cheney never lied about it, and like him or not, that is the difference.

    With this coming out, no self respecting American should vote for Blumenthal. Vote Republican, even if you are a Democrat. Next voting cycle, the Dems will undoubtedly be able to field a better candidate. But for right now, why in the world would you want to vote for a pathological liar?
    One other thing, it's somewhat tangential, but still interesting to me.

    Everyone makes so much about the fact that Cheney got 5 deferments, as if that means he's some sort of failure. Do you know who else got 5 deferments? Our current vice president.

    Nobody seems to know or give a **** about that though.

    and that sums it up

    As desperate as you are

    Whew -- good thing eh? That GWB is still ****ing things up after 20 months of being on his ranch. He must have morphed into a very powerful occult diviner and is reaching out with his massive powers to still, penetrate the tin foil hats of the progressive believers.
    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.
