Woah! Cindy McCain Accuses Obama Of Endangering Her Son in Iraq
Barack Obama, the Democratic candidate, had voted against the bill in the senate last year, but later supported a version of the legislation that included a timetable to withdraw troops from the Middle Eastern state.
Until recently Mrs McCain and her husband, the Republican presidential candidate John McCain, have refused to discuss their two sons serving in the US military.
However, all that changed at a rally on Wednesday night in the swing state of Pennsylvania.
“The day that Sen Obama decided to cast a vote to not fund my son when he was serving sent a cold chill through my body,” she said. “I would suggest that Sen Obama change shoes with me for just one day and see what it means… to have a loved one serving in the armed forces and more importantly, serving in harm’s way.”
Mr McCain’s running mate Sarah Palin has a son now serving in Iraq, as does the Democratic vice presidential nominee.
In related news… The Washington Times reported that the former community organizer was working behind the scenes against President Bush while the administration was trying to work a deal with the Iraqi government.
Why is this not surprising?
UPDATE: Amy Proctor fact checks Obama’s non-support of the troops at war.
