I talked to a Vietnam vet today for a few minutes. His tag-Nam 72 said it all. We share some veteran friends and in fact I told him how to contact one he had been looking for. The subject turned to the Allen-Webb race. He said he supported Sen Allen. I asked him if he knew the VFW and Vietnam Vets Coalition had endorsed Allen the day before. He smiled. He said a man who changes the way Jim Webb has politically, speaks volumes about his character. To embrace John Kerry and Bill Clinton was more than most veterans could stand. I agree. Jim Webb has lost credibility in this race. The VFW gave their nod to Allen. The Webb supporters have called him chicken hawk for months. Webb himself has made it clear that he served and others didn't. That will come back to bite him. His campaign has offended many people including veterans. Webb responds to not getting the VFW endorsement with "the VFW always supports the administration." He should have thought about that. He could have shown them respect, instead he blows them off like they are blind followers. He said he had not heard of the National Vietnam & Gulf War Veterans Coalition. They represent over 100 military groups. They are strong and active. They have worked hard since 1983 to help veterans but Webb never heard of them? Another thoughtful response that shows how out of touch Jim Webb is. At least one veteran I spoke to today found this insulting. I said the whole Webb campaign has been insulting.
