With his lie about serving in Vietnam exposed, Connecticut Attorney General and Democratic Senate Candidate Richard Blumenthal went into major damage control mode today trying to explain why he has claimed he "served in Vietnam" when he did not. In a press conference not-so-coincidentally held at a Veterans of Foreign Wars Hall, Mr. Blumenthal surrounded himself with men who actually served in Vietnam, invoked his own son who is currently serving in the Marines and then tried to minimize his lie by stating, "Now on a few occasions, I have misspoken about my service and I regret that and I take full responsibility.

Misplaced as in coming out his butt?
Democrat politicians are expected to be lying slime bags by their voters.
Look at how often Clinton, Obama, Frank, Kerry et al are routinely given a pass for lying by their voters.
Megyn Kelly of Fox news played the audios over and over where he clearly claimed to have served over and over. Who is he kidding?
Mark Souder should come out and say he just had a “Misplaced” penis.
You have to remember a liberal misspeaks, but a conservative lies /s>
actually, it was rather well placed.
There are serious ethical and maybe legal issues to use the military for political gain. Remember the recent case of the guy who claimed he was a SEAL. They prosecuted this phony. Also, they need to take action against those Marines who allowed themselves to be used as props while wearing military garb at the press conference.
Hard to believe the New York SLimes reported this! What is this world coming to????????
