Is it the water in Washington D.C. or the water in Sen, Harkin’s home state of Iowa that causes extreme dementia that manafests itself when near a microphone and members of the media?
I can’t answer the question posed, but one thing I do know, Harkin is a full-on nutcase, and no better example of that is in this piece of trash spoken during a conference call with Iowa reporters.
Republican presidential candidate John McCain’s family background as the son and grandson of admirals has given him a worldview shaped by the military, “and he has a hard time thinking beyond that,” Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Ia., said Friday.
“I think he’s trapped in that,” Harkin said in a conference call with Iowa reporters. “Everything is looked at from his life experiences, from always having been in the military, and I think that can be pretty dangerous.”
Harkin said that “it’s one thing to have been drafted and served, but another thing when you come from generations of military people and that’s just how you’re steeped, how you’ve learned, how you’ve grown up.”
I’m really confused here, just what is it the Democrats believe about the military?
During the Bush/Kerry campaign military service was of great import to the extent Kerry used his mostly phony record as a brickbat tossed at the “AWOL” Bush.
Al Gore, um excuse me, The Goracle as he’s now known used the same tactic against Bush. Military service was important, and Gore served in Vietnam while Bush just flew around in airplanes in the National Guard stateside.
So yea, I’m confused as to just what these nimrods at the head of the Party of Democrats think.
Not only that, in Harkin’s case, he’s now claiming military service, at least those that volunteer and those with long family histories of service are somehow “dangerous.” MeThinks Harkin needs to shut his piehole considering he at one time felt military service so important to lie has ass off about his record.
Harkin made a 1984 boast that he had flown F-4s and F-8s on combat air patrols and photo-reconnaissance support missions in Vietnam. Or was was combat sorties over Cuba when he corrected himself when challenged by Senator Berry Goldwater.
Harkin finally acknowledged that he had never seen combat — that his military experience consisted of ferrying damaged aircraft for repairs from Japan to the Philippines.
Now THAT’s dangerous, not that he’d give one wit in the midst of a political campaign pitting two flawed Dem. candidates against one Rep. flawed candidate. And if he can get his “side” into the WH it’s all for the “better.”
As it is for Harkin to go to the mat in full support of the Ethanol scam for his states corn growers that has contributed to the current food shortage chronicled nearly daily in the world’s media. You want dangerous Harkin, that’s it, all for the sake of expensive subsidies for shifting corn from the food chain for a use as a fuel source.
Harkin, you’re a despicable asshat. And DANGEROUS to boot.
