Wes Clark, the General Who Can’t Be Quiet

Wesley Clark is at it again. I have posted about him before. Every time he talks on a TV show it becomes more apparent why he was fired as the NATO commander.

Now he attacks John McCain’s military service as irrelevant for the position of our commander in chief. This guy is sickening.

With Obama planning to visit the Middle East and Europe in an apparent effort to burnish his foreign policy credentials, the credentials of his likely presidential rival, Senator John McCain, were attacked Sunday from a man considered a possible Democratic vice presidential candidate (even Obama is not that stupid).

The retired and fired general Wesley Clark said McCain had not "held executive responsibility" and had not commanded troops in wartime. Clark, a fellow military man who was once the NATO supreme commander (and fired from that job too, for issues around his integrity and character) launched a sleazy attack on McCain because "he hasn't been there and ordered the bombs to fall" as a wartime commander, the general said on CBS.

When the interviewer, Bob Schieffer, noted to Clark that McCain had been shot down over Hanoi, Clark replied, "I don't think riding in a fighter plane and getting shot down is a qualification to be president."

When Schieffer then asked what executive responsibility Obama had held - the Democrat's résumé includes work as a community organizer in Chicago and eight years in the Illinois legislature - Clark said that Obama was running on the strength of his character and good judgment.

Clark has neither of those two qualities – strength of character or good judgment. So I am not sure why he thinks he can assess those traits in another. Of course, I don’t think Obama has them either.

Wasn’t it back in 2004 at the Democrat Convention where Clark praised John Kerry’s naval service as the right kind of service? Clark is amazing in his ability to be wrong about everything.

The sad thing is that he cannot see that the Left is using him. He is pathetic.

I agree, Clark is pathetic. God only knows how he ever rose to the rank of General.

Clark and Westmoreland have to be the worst Generals, other tha McClellan, in history. I wouldn't follow Clark into the dining room let alone into combat.

Where do these worms come from?

I wish I knew, Chuck. I guess no system is perfect.

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.
