Jim Webb- Cut n Run
Jerry From on High has some thoughts about Jim Webb. Jerry is right on target saying
"The voters, the real voters, not the fanatical 1% who bothered to show up and vote for him on Tuesday, will be wanting to know more about the man and where he's going to take the commonwealth. They are not interested in his electability or what bloggers have to say. They'll be looking at him. They may be sorely disappointed."
I agree with that. Jim Webb's only talking point is Iraq. We are already seeing hero worship about Webb's service in Vietnam. A war Webb said was right. We all know what a success Vietnam was both short term and long term. The death toll there does not compare to Iraq. The achievements there do not compare to Iraq. So tell us again Jim why Vietnam was right? Tell us Jim what happened there after we cut and run? Tells us about the slaughter of thousands that we left hanging when we pulled out of Vietnam. Now explain why we should do the same thing to those people fighting for freedom in Iraq. Tell us Jim why you choose to abandon those proud Iraqi's just like we abandoned those in Vietnam. I thought that is why you left the democrats after Vietnam to begin with. I can hear the answer now. "I wrote an article in......" Pleeeeze!
