I will not accept from Sen. Obama, who did not feel it was his responsibility to serve our country in uniform, any lectures on my regard for those who did.
So that's how I found out that Obama didn't ever go into the military at all! That's something I should have known but scarcely gave any thought to. I just very simply and naively believed that would-be presidents would at least have some personal experience with service to country. My assumptions were, of course, way off course with regard to Obama. I assumed that a guy who expressed so many opinions of the military, of what it should do, and where it should go, would naturally have a great deal of experience in this area. I'm still shaking my head. It's Memorial Day, and I'm thinking of all the brave men and women who gave of themselves because they love freedom, and not because it would afford Barack Obama the opportunity to buy their votes.
