Better Not Mess With Clark

DERRY, N.H. -- Moments after praising his opponents in the Democratic presidential race as worthy running mates, Wesley Clark said, in no uncertain terms, how he would respond if they or anyone else criticized his patriotism or military record.

"I'll beat the s--- out of them," Clark told a questioner as he walked through the crowd after a town hall meeting Saturday. "I hope that's not on television," he added.

It was, live, on C-SPAN.

The campaign's traveling press secretary, Jamal Simmons, was with Clark at the time.

"If anyone tries to question Wes Clark's character, integrity or his commitment to this country or its security, they're going to be in the biggest fight they've ever had," Simmons said.

F***in' right.

"If anyone tries to question Wes Clark's character, integrity" ---- I guess Clark didn't hear the comments of those five to ten high-level military men who did just that! Clark's got a whole lot of a**-kicking to do. Come to think of it, I'm thinking of calling Don King. I see $$$$$ signs! "The General vs. The Rest"

The funny thing is, several conservative news organizations, The Weekly Standard among them, have done a search to find a Bush administration official who has ever questioned the patriotism of the left.

They could not find ONE such official.

We all on FR, correctly, question the left's patriotism, but the Bush administration has not done so.

David Hackworth; "NATO's Wesley Clark is not the Iron Duke, nor is he Stormin' Norman. Unlike Wellington and Schwarzkopf, Clark's not a muddy boots soldier. He's a military politician, without the right stuff to produce victory over Serbia. Known by those who've served with him as the "Ultimate Perfumed Prince," he's far more comfortable in a drawing room discussing political theories than hunkering down in the trenches where bullets fly and soldiers die. An intellectual in warrior's gear."

I guess Hack better cover his a**. Clark is coming to kick it!

Clintons' sock puppet -- are sock puppets tough enough to back up those tough words ( "I'll beat the s--- out of them,")? We should ask General Sheldon.

Worth repeating the comments of Clark's senior officer: When asked what he thought of Clark's presidential bid, retired General H. Hugh Sheldon, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff on 9/11, stated:

"I've known Wes for a long time. I will tell you the reason he came out of Europe early had to do with integrity and character issues, things that are very near and dear to my heart. I'm not going to say whether I'm a Republican or a Democrat. I'll just say Wes won't get my vote."

LOL

Remember "The Abduction of Margaret Houlihan" in which it is rumoured that Hotlips had been abducted and the appearance of our loony friend, CIA man Colonel Flagg, wanting to invade North Korea as a result?

Clark only want's to kick the s**t out of people. LOL

I, Meyer, hereby declare that I am at this time questioning Wuss Clark's character, integrity, and his commitment to this country and its security.

Clark requests that you paint a target on your white tee shirt and stand on the middle of a bridge over the Danube.

Then he'll show you how tough he is. As soon as he can commandeer a fighter jet.

Foxnews Sunday played this delightful exchange. They also played the next few seconds where an elderly Jewish woman begs Clark (para)..."please tell me it isn't true that you would abandon Israel." As Clark assured her he would do no such thing, he then leaned over and whispered in her ear..."my father was Jewish." It appears Clark had quite a day in NH. I only wished I could've seen FR's Kathryn Prudhomme's grilling of the good General. What a pathetic little panderer.
