More Leftwing Hatred for American servicemen and women

"McCain was a fighter pilot, who dropped laser-guided missiles from 35,000 feet. He was long gone when they hit. What happened when they [the missiles] get to the ground? He doesn’t know. You have to care about the lives of people. McCain never gets into those issues."
Democrat Senator Jay Rockefeller, chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, smearing every Americanfighter pilot in the United States Air Force and impugning the integrity of our military men and women

“SenatorRockefeller’s statement is an insult to all the men and women who are serving or have served in America’s military. Had Senator Rockefeller served himself, he would appreciate and understand that most who have been to war emerge with a much deeper concern for humanity than they otherwise might. If he knew what he was talking about, he would know that John McCain wasn’t dropping laser-guided missiles at 35,000 feet in 1967."
Retired Marine Lt. Col. Orson Swindle

“I have deep respect for John McCain’s honorable and noble service to our country. I made an inaccurate and wrong analogy and I have extended my sincere apology to him. …I regret my very poor choice of words.”
Democrat Senator Jay Rockefeller

"Senator Rockefeller should be aiming his fire at these radicals who are transforming the party of JFK and FDR into the party of Michael Moore and George Soros. The chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee should not be kowtowing to these fringe extremists by adopting their hateful leftwing rhetoric to attack Senator McCain.

Americans may be frustrated with the pace of progress in Iraq, but I believe the “silent majority” is rapidly running out of patience for the “blame America first” crowd and the “God D--- America” chorus."
