Senator Harkin is Anti Military Idiot

Senator Tom Harkin of Iowa is a bonehead who has insulted John McCain because McCain served in the military. According to Harkin, McCain’s service and the generations of service from his family has wired him differently and renders him unfit to serve as president. Imagine that, Harkin thinks military service makes one unfit for the Presidency. Remember when service was a good thing and when most of our presidents served or came from military families? Perhaps liberals look at this differently because it is getting harder and harder to find liberals who served and they know this.

Republican presidential candidate John McCain’s family background as the son and grandson of admirals has given him a worldview shaped by the military, “and he has a hard time thinking beyond that,” Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Ia., said Friday.

“I think he’s trapped in that,” Harkin said in a conference call with Iowa reporters. “Everything is looked at from his life experiences, from always having been in the military, and I think that can be pretty dangerous.”

Harkin said that “it’s one thing to have been drafted and served, but another thing when you come from generations of military people and that’s just how you’re steeped, how you’ve learned, how you’ve grown up.” Des Moines Register

Harkin is absolutely, without a doubt a complete idiot. He believes that being in the military and that havng a family history of serving makes one unfit to be the president. I guess the idea of discipline, selfless service to the country, duty, honor, and integrity (all values taught in the military) are not what Harkin would call positive attributes. And why would he? Just look who he backs for president. Barack Obama.

Barack Obama lived the ideal liberal life. He was born to a black man and white woman. His father left when Obama was very young so he was left in a single parent household. Eventually he ended up being shipped off to his typical white grandmother. Obama benefitted from affirmative action and used the benefits provided by the government to attend law school and then he became a politician and has lived off the government. Barack Obama has lived a liberal life of handouts and socialism. He is not fit to be president. His life experiences are ingrained in him and he will try to run the country based on his liberal ideas of income redistribution.

It seems to me that Democrats are positioning themselves for the general election. They know that Obama has NO military experience whatsoever and his life shows he has little leadership experience. The left is trying to make this a non issue now by claiming it is McCain whose life experiences make him unfit to serve. There are a lot of problems with John McCain that might call into question his qualifications for the presidency but his military experience is not among them and Senator Harkin should be slapped around for suggesting such stupidity.

Think about it America. The Democrats want you to believe that military experience and a family history of service makes people unfit to be president. Barack Obama is supposed to be the next coming of JFK. As I recall Kennedy was in the Navy. His service failed to make him unfit to be president.

Only in the mind of liberal idiots could military experience disqualify a person from serving AS COMMANDER IN CHIEF OF THE ARMED FORCES.

And this is the kind of logic that wants to run this country. It might be a good idea for the liberals to come up with another line of attack. This whole military issue will backfire. Harkin has already insulted a lot of people who have served and whose families have a history of service and these insults will not go unnoticed.

    Woof! (and thanks for the link)

    When liberals in general or even the Democrats make Sen. Tom Harkin our official spokesperson for who we believe is fit and unfit for being president, then your argument here will mean something. Until then it’s just a joke.

    It’s not getting harder to find liberals who served in the military. That’s just some fact you pulled out of your butt. There are plenty of Democrats in congress who have served in the military, including Harkin himself. I guess their service doesn’t count though right?

    Adam, Adam,
    That false argument of yours. You say it is not getting harder to find liberals who served and then say that many Democrats serve. The two are not necessarily the same. It is getting harder to find LIBERALS who served.

    Would this be the same Harkin who lied about his service, said he was on missions over Vietnam? This is the fraud Harkin.

    It is not a fact I pulled out of my butt. Today’s military is about 80% Conservative. Liberals would rather sit around smoking dope and singing Kumbaya while bothering recruiters in Berkeley.

    You don’t see conservatives bothering recruiters or protesting the military.

    No Adam, Harkin is an idiot and he lied to make himself look like Rambo in VN when he was more like Mickey Mouse.

    Tell me, why is it when some Conservative makes a statement you libs don’t like you act as if he speaks for all conservatives but when a lib makes a statement we don’t like you call it a lone voice?

    If Rush Limbaugh says something about Michael J Fox he speaks for all conservatives. You libs always equate an individual’s statement with the entire party.

    Your shallow argument will not work. The only way Dems are winning is by running people who are fairly moderate or conservative leaning (for Congressional seats).

    That is the kind of twisted logic that can only be found on the left.
    Harkin said that it is okay if you were drafted, but not if you come from a military family. He must feel as though there is something wron to WANT to volunteer to serve your country. This man is an idiot.

    it’s commander in chief of the army and navy and militias as the need arises, certainly not the armed forces, look it up !!

    As for your argument, it extends to psuedo “service” such as spending a million dollars to teach george bush junior to fly and then have him flake out on his obligations. Too much is made of appearing to do public service and actually doing quite well by doing the public.
    what counts is integrity, honest hard work actual sevice in the public interest. and no it ain’t socialism

    Doug,
    The Constitution designates the President as the Commander in Chief of the Army and the Navy. The subordinate clause states that he will also serve as the CinC when the militia is called to active duty. The President is the CinC of the Army and Navy every day, not as the need arises. He is further designated as the CinC when the militia is called into federal service.

    The militias belong to the states and are under the control of the Governors of the states. If they are called into federal service, they fall under the President. The Regular Army and Navy are always under his control and he is ALWAYS CinC of them. To use your words, look it up. I will help you. Article II Section 2.

    The Air Force was part of the Army and became a separate force in 1947 when Truman signed the National security act of 1947. The Marines are part of the Navy. These are the Armed Forces and the President is CinC of them at all times.

    Ah yes. I forgot. Liberals smoke dope and hate America, conservatives work real jobs and fight in the military to protect us all. *yawn*

    No actually Liberals/Democrats are chipping away at American citizen’s independence one little bit at a time. Before you bring up the Patriot Act I’ll have you know I vehemently opposed it, where my Democratic Representative & Senator responded to my letters that they thought it was best for our nation and they voted for it.

    Entitlement payments, wealth redistribution, and other policies are slowly but surely stripping Americans of their will to self govern. Our corrupt politicians (of both parties) surely don’t help the situation, in fact the lines between Rep & Dem seem to be blurring when it comes to big government. Think about this, with the money we spend on fighting poverty and the amount of money we spend on education you’d think we’d be better off. However our education systems only teach “read and regurgitate” which plays well with the MSM and the crap they feed us. Most of us are just smart enough to keep the machine running but not smart enough to think for ourselves and Poverty is just as bad as it was 30 years ago.

    Welfare strips a person of their pride and dignity, our system does nothing to turn that individual into a productive taxpayer. They become and ignorant voter dependent on the entitlement payment from the government and thus beholden to whichever party supports these payments. The black community talks about the “white man” keeping him down but they are too blind to really look at what their “friends” the democrats have really done to them. They are trying to take the same approach with the Hispanic community as well by offering them entitlement payments.

    The Democrats really should just call themselves the Socialist Party and be done with it.

    Harkin should be ashamed of himself!!! How did this idiot ever become a senator? Like the unpatriotic cowards in Berkely, CA … Harkin demeans the Americans who put their lives on the line in order to provide ingrates like Harkin with the precious unique freedoms this country has to offer its citizens.
