Obama Rejects Wes Clark’s McCain War Statements

As well he should. This was extremely bad form by Wes Clark, especially after 2004.

From CNN:

“As he’s said many times before, Senator Obama honors and respects Senator McCain’s service, and of course he rejects yesterday’s statement by General Clark,” Obama spokesman Bill Burton said in a statement.

Here’s what McCain said…

“I know that General Clark is not an isolated incident but I have no way of knowing how much involvement Sen. Obama has in that issue,” he told reporters. “I know he has mischaracterized some of my statements in the past including our involvement in Iraq but I’ll let the American people decide about that.”

What do you think? Planned attack against McCain or simply a Clark screw up?

    I saw nothing wrong with Wes Clark said , I agree being shoot down and captured does not qulify anyone to be President.

    Wesley Clark trips all over himself every time he says anything.

    Last go around, Clark crowed endlessly about Kerry’s service, and how horrible it was that anyone would doubt Kerry’s integrity. He held Kerry up as a hero and ABSOLUTELY advertised his service as a reason why Kerry was fit to be commander in chief.

    Now he flip flops right on his face – as he usually does.

    Conservatives flip flop from time to time, but they don’t throw any vet under the bus unless that vet is out there denigrating our troops – like Kerry did.

    They are two peas in a pod.

    Clark is a disgrace to the uniform and it’s a tragedy our soldiers and vets had to listen to his blather.

    On the other hand,does military experience give you an advantage when dealing with military commanders – something the next President will have to do often? That’s quite obviously a yes.
