"Some on left" target McCain's war record

Some on left target McCain's war record
"A lot of people don't know ... that McCain made a propaganda video for the enemy while he was in captivity," wrote Americablog.com's John Aravosis. "Putting that bit of disloyalty aside, what exactly is McCain's military experience that prepares him for being commander in chief?"

"Getting shot down, tortured and then doing propaganda for the enemy is not command experience," Aravosis wrote in the blog post, titled "Honestly, besides being tortured, what did McCain do to excel in the military?"

Yes he is.

But take a look at what Wesley Clark has to say:

How stupid is Wesley Clark?, asks Ed Morrissey:
In "the matter of national security policy making." Barack Obama hasn't ever done anything.
In the matter of gauging your "opponents", Obama wants to meet with them without preconditions despite having no national-security, military, or diplomatic experience.
Barack Obama hasn't been on the Senate Armed Services Committee.
Barack Obama hasn't had any executive experience.
Barack Obama hasn't commanded anything, in wartime or not.
Barack Obama hasn't dealt with diplomats in any capacity at all.
Barack Obama hasn't ordered the bombs to fall, although to be fair, he has associated himself with someone who has — William Ayers.
Well, at least Aravosis and Clark aren't complaining about Obama's teeth.

Is this the "change" that everyone wants in Washington?

Good question.

McCain's seminal act of leadership and self-sacrifice was not when he was shot down. The moment came when he passed up the North Vietnamese offer to leave the Hanoi Hilton and then became one of the leaders of the imprisoned men.

Well, Obama did do all of the community organizing for Grove Parc in Chicago.
