Jim Webb - No Honor
[L]et's examine whether Jim Webb really believes that McCain needs to "get the politics out of the military [and] have our political arguments in other areas." Here's a review of Webb's own record.
• In his own 2006 Senate campaign, Jim Webb touted the importance of military experience...
"[W]hat you’re seeing here is, is a split between the theorists, who have controlled so much of the policy in this administration, theorists who have never been on a battlefield, who have never put a uniform on, and who are looking at this thing in a totally different way from people who have had to, to worry about their troops and themselves possibly coming under enemy hands."
This military service thing was a huge talking point for Kerry and Webb, yet as I predicted Wednesday, August 22, 2007, it is now a non issue...according to Webb.
