He LIES with a STRAIGHT (UGLY) FACE!!
how the hell can tose vets stand there and support him and he even has the balls to stand there in a VFW of which he is not one.
Are those vets there not got a brain or are they expecting a big pay off if he wins?
Its so obvious he is lying
Is this how politicians plead, “mea culpa” these days? No wonder we want to throw them all out.
I served in Vietnam. I distinctly recall going there and coming back, together with a number of things that happened along the way. I can’t imagine getting it mixed up with pulling KP at Ft. Bragg. Just sayin’.
Just spoke with VFW headquarters.
Blumenthal is NOT a member of the VFW
Headquarters is as upset as the rest of us.
The woman did not know if there was going to be an official VFW response.
While I was in Vietnam, when I came back from Vietnam is not 'misspeaking'! I think one would remember if they were in Vietnam!
What an idiot.
This stuff is so easy to track. Why would anyone in public (or private life for that matter) lie about it?
Don’t they realize what an insult it is to those who have served and in combat.
I mean the guy was in the Marine Reserves. That is a very honorable place to serve.
They always have to go one better than they really are.
What a shame.
Carley thanks for the info...
I say bravo for him, let him stay in the race. He will get clobbered in the election and the seat will turn GOP. If he resigns another Dem may step up and pluu a Lautenberg on us.
Stolen Valor Act
I mispoke when I said I was a five star general too.
Shades of Ace Harkin!
Right, like what he said was NOT intentional and calculated!
It was suprising that this jerk was able to use actual Nam vets to back him up and to do it within the confines of a Veterans of Foreign Wars post.
This guy is full of it.
It was intentionally unintentional. That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it!
Someone wrote the speech and he delivered it. He knew damn well what he was saying at the time!
“He LIES with a STRAIGHT (UGLY) FACE!!”
And that is why politicians right down at the bottom with used car salesmen and snake oil sellers.
Of course. I don’t know what is more offensive ...the lie or the lie about the lie!
