Blumenthal should withdraw from the Senate race!

    From CNN - Cafferty File

    "The New York Times has an explosive front page story today about Democratic candidate Richard Blumenthal - saying he has lied on multiple occasions about serving in Vietnam.

    Blumenthal, who is the state's attorney general, never served in Vietnam. Yet on numerous occasions he has said things like: "We have learned something important since the days that I served in Vietnam." He's also referred to: "When we returned." These are lies...."

    Side Note - Both CNN & The NY Times are dissed by wingnuts as being partisan but they broke the story and are pushing it. Some hubbers consider me liberal - but I am pushing it. The Democratic Party Candidate for Senate in Connecticut does not deserve to sit in the Senate. I am a Vietnam-ERA veteran - we got just inside the 3-mile limit the night Saigon fell. That's as close as I ever wanted to get and I won't misrepresent my service. Any scumbag who DOES falsely claim combat-zone service will be barred from office by the voters and should get jail-time as a bonus.

      Well spoken.

      Good to agree with you on something, Doug. And it could not have been a better topic.

      Excellent topic, and the only position to take.  He should be booted out of any office in any capacity, as much for his lies or "mispeak" as for his inabiity to even be chagrined about this with a room full of vets as his audience.  Unacceptable.

    Good for you, Doug! I saw this on MSNBC. There's another thread about it here, too.

    Your pal,

      Hi, Rose. Yes My buddy Mason posted 3 minutes before I hit 'submit'.

      Funny how he and I think so much alike.

      and how many seconds??? Jeezzz - It's  the first time in my life I have ever been stalked - but I do have lousy legs.  Wingnuts waiting in the wings. After I posted, my post showed a 3 minute difference from Mason's probably because there was a comment on his post  and the comment was 3 minutes old.  If you want to spin off a conspiracy theory - by all means - write a post.

    Just when Harvard's reputation is beginning to recover from Enron's Jeff Skilling and George W. Bush, along comes Blumenthal, another slippery character of which there are already enough in the Senate. Apparently he lied on several occasions and now is lieing about his lies.
