    i assure you, that is not the case
    i do not need to speak with you or those like you to appreciate what true service to one's country is about
    and i reserve the expression 'dirtbag' for those who demean those who have served their country

    So you served? In which war? Where? When?


    How do you feel about some punk claiming to be where you have been?


    i do not need to speak with you or those like you to appreciate what true service to one's country is about
    Seems you kinda do.


    and i reserve the expression 'dirtbag' for those who demean those who have served their country

    Why do you always do the cowardly thing and try to cleverly insult me.... We have a basement, why not come to a place where your mouth has to cash those checks it keeps writing?

    I still don't know what this has to do with Blumenthal lying about serving in Vietnam. If you're going to defend your guy's lies, at least be honest about it and stop trying to change the subject.

    unlike that NYT story i have provided you with the complete video, in which Blumenthal prefaces his remarks by noting he was a reservist who did not serve in vietnam
    i do recognize he was careless in the way he did not consistently make that distinction

    Critics weigh Blumenthal's words - StamfordAdvocate



    "We have learned something important since the days that I served in Vietnam," Blumenthal was quoted as saying. "And you exemplify it. Whatever we think about the war, whatever we call it — Afghanistan or Iraq — we owe our military men and women unconditional support."

    Bottom line is he lied about serving in Vietnam on more than one occasion. Now it's time for the partisan hacks on the left to come out of the woodwork to create the illusion that he wasn't really lying when he lied.

    "Well, Bush did..."

    Fill in the blanks as you see fit.

    As was pointed out by the conservatives in regards to some on the left saying Bush lied about Iraq, for it to be a lie you would have to prove he INTENTIONALLY did not just misspeak and had the intention of fabricating.
