I think Webb is a rare commodity: a genuine American patriot.

Webb is a candy ass. His service in the war aside...he has made a recent career as an apologist.

Somewhere along the way, he has lost his nerve. And, he is no longer a rockribbed Reaganite.

Yes, and I agree with him that the response to Murtha's statements about Iraq is troubling: Opponents dig up "dirt" about his military record. Instead of answering him on the merits, they resort to trying to slime him. and the message goes out: don't criticize Bush, or your closet will be opened, too. That's Clinton tactics.

Agreed.

Why is changing one's mind suddenly a sign of weakness? Most normal people do it all the time.

He is a hero and a patriot, that is without any question or doubt.

His judgement however, over the years, has been without compass.

He seems to go off kilter to often and without direction.

I love his independence and love of country, I can't stand his constantly ever changing judgement, where he goes all over the map.
