Obama Whines at VFW Convention

Posted by Ryan on August 19, 2008

In sum: “John McCain called me names, waaah!” 

It’s time to call a “WAH-ambulance” for Barack Obama.  Not only did he whine about McCain’s criticism of him in front of the VFW Convention today, he got his analysis of Iraq totally wrong, and he brought this out:

“But one of the things that we have to change in this country is the idea that people can’t disagree without challenging each other’s character and patriotism. I have never suggested that Senator McCain picks his positions on national security based on politics or personal ambition. I have not suggested it because I believe that he genuinely wants to serve America’s national interest. Now, it’s time for him to acknowledge that I want to do the same.”

Every time a Democrat brings up someone questioning their patriotism, you the listener have to immediately assume that their patriotism is suspect.  The Dems see no difference from questioning the judgment of a candidate and questioning their love of country.  It’s been quite a psychological drama unfolding before us since 2002.  And that unfolding drama continued today!

Obama had a chance to go to the VFW and take control of the agenda, instead he basically responded to McCain’s attacks and looked small and whiny in my opinion. He’s showing himself to be a poor candidate when it comes to outreach.
