Posted on 08/18/2006 6:44:33 PM PDT by SueRae
This week's Democratic response to the president's weekly radio address will come from an unusual source -- this time a candidate, not a member of Congress, will speak.
Joe Sestak, 54, is running for Congress in the 7th Congressional District in Delaware County. His opponent is ten-term incumbent Republican Curt Weldon, whom Democrats believe can be beaten in the fall.
Sestak says he was surprised by a phone call Wednesday evening from House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi:
"She said, 'Joe, I'd be honored if you would speak for the party on national radio, and with your background and how well you're running in the district, and represent that we need a change in Iraq.' "
His background includes 31 years in the US Navy, rising to the rank of rear admiral.
His speech -- taped Friday at KYW Newsradio's studios -- will focus on the need to change the mission in Iraq to hand over security of that nation to the Iraqis, so we can better deploy resources to handle security issues in this country.
The more light that is shined on Sestak, the more the voters will move to Weldon. We hated him in the Navy and this district will hate him in Congress.
Just what we need, a Navy know-it-all commenting on a land war!
Heck, I have a better idea: Just go to this website at: The Virtual Autorantic Moonbat!
You could just enter the key phrases into this, and it spits out dialog that is indistinguishable from what you hear exiting the pieholes of the Democrats! (It REALLY is quite funny! You just type in a question like: "What do you think of our Iraq policy?" and it spits out things like:
On the topic of "policy": As I've said before, Noam Chomsky's book, "My Cross-eyed Life as a Kitten," should be required reading for Repugnantans like you!!!! Logically, it LOOKS like we can say goodbye to the Kyoto treaty AND union WAGES!!!! Fun WHILE it lasted. Checkmate!!!! CERTAINLY, Glenn Reynolds is a tool of NAFTA!!!!! Chimpy only wants Nevada for the oil!!!!! Waaa!?"
I wouldn't trust this guy to comment on anything in the military. He is what we refer to as a technocrat.
Looks like you had him pegged correctly. I was in aviation, but there always seemed like there were two distinct types of officers in the Navy. The ones who only cared about themselves and their careers who you hated to even be around let alone work for and others who were a pleasure to serve with [who understood team concepts]. But both would get promoted.
It took the new Chief of Naval Operations, Admiral Mike Mullen, less than 24 hours to dump one of the most disliked officers among the Navy's top brass. Vice-Admiral Joe Sestak, an arrogant and obnoxious "bully-boy," who delighted in being rude and unreasonable and getting away with it, found he was expendable the minute his mentor went out the door.
