Another Democrat War Record Lie

May 19th, 2010 by Ted Silberstein

Well Democrats certainly can not be accused of learning from their mistakes when it comes to misrepresenting their war service record. John Kerry getting his clock cleaned over his Vietnam war record embellishments during his presidential run didn’t stop Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal from jumping into the same minefield with both feet. In many speeches, Blumenthal has repeatedly and often pointed out that he served in Vietnam when it has now been confirmed that he was a Marine reservist, who obtained at least 5, count ‘em, 5 deferments, and never served overseas.

Blumenthal now wants us to believe that he simply misspoke, and that he only meant to say that he served “during” Vietnam, not “in” Vietnam. Everyone and especially he knows that he is pumping pure bilge water. When he said repeatedly and often that he served in Vietnam, he knew exactly what he was doing and he simply thought he could get away with it. Blumenthal blissfully, ignorantly and worse – arrogantly stode down the same briar path as the war record lying Grand Dragon John Kerry did before him, and just like Kerry he has now been caught red handed in his lies.

What is so astounding is how Blumenthal has the temerity to leer into the camera and warn us “I will not allow anyone to take a few of those misplaced words and impugn my record of service.” Really? You will not allow it? Ooh, I’m so scared. Sounds just like when Bill Clinton wagged his finger at us and said “You listen to me, I did not have sex with that girl.” Well that certainly convinced us didn’t it?

Get this straight Richard Blumenthal, I don’t care what you will allow, I am calling you out. You are a liar, you knew you were intentionally claiming to have served in Vietnam while knowing you never did, and I am impugning not the service you actually performed, but I’m most definitely impugning your fabricated claims to having servived in Vietnam, which is a repugnant affront to the brave soldiers who did. So there, despite your belicose warning you may now consider yourself thoroughly and completely impugned. Besides, you needn’t worry about being impugned by others when you have done such a superlative job of impugning yourself.
