Webb Jumps In

Jim Webb has jumped into the fray over McCain's service record. He is a guy that used his service as part of his successful run for the Senate. Now he is out there telling McCain to cool it. What a hypocrite! This is a guy that wore his son's desert boots on the campaign trail. In my opinion, this is a well orchestrated attempt by the Obama campaign to use surrogates to attack McCain on leadership. Let's face it, Obama has no resumé to speak of and his judgement has been question by the associations he has kept. You cannot tell me that sitting in a pew for 20 years and not knowing what Wright was preaching is believable. As for Webb, keep talking, because all this does is show that Obama is just another Chicago politician and it focuses more attention on his lack of experience. - Sailor

Mr. Webb, a Virginia Democrat who is often mentioned as a possible running mate for Mr. Obama, said Mr. McCain should "calm down" about his military record. "Don't be standing up and uttering your political views and implying that all the people in the military support them, because they don't," he said on MSNBC.

A Marine who served in Vietnam - a fact he mentioned often as he campaigned for the Senate, occasionally while wearing his son's desert combat boots - Mr. Webb said "we need to make sure that we take politics out of service."

The comments followed those of retired Army Gen. Wesley Clark, an Obama supporter, who used a Sunday talk show to criticize the presumptive Republican nominee's experience as a Navy pilot and prisoner of war in Vietnam.
