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.
Doug I must not be feeling well because I actually agree with you. I better go lie down for a bit
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.
To be precise, he posted 27 minutes before you. Just for the record.
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.

This man ought to be in jail. Right now.http://www.businessinsider.com/richard- … ice-2010-5This can't be good news for Democrats and their hopes of retaining the Senate. New York Times reporter Raymond Hernandez is reporting this evening that Dick Blumenthal, the Connecticut AG and likely...

Read this article from the NY Times. It's about a well planned, highly funded conspiracy to shutdown the government if Obama Care is not defunded. Please share this with everybody you know. The republican extremists are not playing by the rules of democracy and are making a...
