Rachel Maddow Upset That Romney, Ryan Used Battleship Backdrop
RealClearPolitics ^ | August 11, 2012

(VIDEO AT LINK)

Rachel Maddow: "Can I also just say can you imagine the uproar if two Democrats who had never served in the military and do not have family service, history of serving in the military, literally ran out of a battleship and onto the podium to declare the vice-presidential nomination in their party -- if two Democrats, without military service records, as Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan don't have service records, using this battleship and using this military setting..."

Rachel,

If that is the best you can come up with it is going to be a long campaign season for you.

Or the difference between the party that loves and supports our military and the one that doesn't. The dems always miss the point.

How about a person having no knowledge of history stepping on to the stage as if he were a Greek statesman?

My father, Master Chief Duntno, was at Songjin with the Wisconsin battlegroup onboard a tincan that took several hits while shelling close-in. She was the flagship of the 7th Fleet at the time. Just about all of the ships were damaged. It was a pretty ferocious exchange. I wasn’t offended that these guys were on the Wisconsin. Why was she?

Commodore Maddow is most certainly an expert on ships having been an epic-fail host-ette on the PMSNBC Titanic for lo, too many tedious months.

Hey Rachel,...I’m upset that you’re giving the male image a bad name. And here’s a tip: Strapping on a fake penis doesn’t actually make you a man.

“...if two Democrats, without military service records...”

Isn’t that the vast majority of them? Just asking.

I just watched the best speech I have seen Romney give. It was on FNC and the venue was a Community College in Va. He was passionate and animated and almost losing his voice. There was an energy I have not seen before. Oh, and not a Teleprompter in sight! The crowed was vocal - loud, supportive and cheering!

Did you know that John Kerry served in Vietnam??? I think they mentioned that a few times when he ran for president.

“John Kerry, reporting for duty”, and all that noise from that campaign.

If Romney/Ryan win (and I will pray daily that they will) then I hope they go back to the USS Wisconsin, and that there will be a banner saying -— “Mission Accomplished!!”

What an irritatingly grating voice comes out of Madcow.

I listen to her once in a great while when the commercials on Fox are driving me crazy. She makes no sense whatsoever, but what would one expect from a lesbian he-man?

Actually, I don't really care one way or the other. I just don't want her to hold her mannish appearance up against me, next to me or even flash it in my general direction.

Yikes

Wasn’t in my father’s day, but nowadays? Of course. The last Democratic president with military service was James Earl Carter. If they somehow elect Hillary in 2016 it’ll be 36 years without a veteran.
