A short yet powerful video of an Iraq war veteran giving his endorsement to McCain has become the site's most watched election video, with over 11 million views.
The video opens with a young man with close-cropped hair standing outside in casual clothes next to an American flag.
"Dear Mr. Obama," he says, and describes himself as an Iraq war veteran, whose yearlong tour convinced him that Iraqis are "just like us" in seeking freedom.
"Are they better off today than they were in 2002? You bet," he says.
Eleven million views!
Wow. I had not seen the video before. Powerful.
We need to get this out!!! I have already forwarded a message to Drudge so hopefully he will find it news worthy enough to post on his website....
Oh, my good lord, goosebumps. That was truly powerful and inspiring...and the part at the end where he walks away and you can see the sacrifice HE made...God bless him. God bless all of our troops. God bless all soldiers who fight for freedom.
Somehow I missed that and want to thank you so much for posting! This is, hands down, the most powerful endorsement and ad for McCain/Palin I have seen.
God Bless the USA! God Bless our troops!
bump for later viewing....I hate firewalls
Pull his records! ALERT! ALERT! See if he ever jay-walked! Find out if he ever was in detention in high school!
It’s probably too late to contact some 527s about airing this...
What is the best email to use to get this video to McCain’s campaign?
This would be wonderful to run this weekend...just as it is.
Anyone know the best email? Thank you
Agreed. Too bad the masses don't want powerful & inspiring. They want FREE. Gimmee, gimmee, gimmee.
You can view the video here:
It’s on the Fox News Website Homepage as well as being reported by BBC
Thank you , but I wanted a good EMAIL of McCains to send the link to him. I don’t know which email he or his staff might read.
I thought it would be good for them to get permission from the young man and use the video in a commercial. It is very Powerful!
I don’t have an email contact for the campaign, but I did send the Youtube link to McCain/Palins contact page
It’s late, but perhaps there’s something they could do with it if enough of us send it to them.
This needs to be sent to everyone’s contact list pronto- It is VERY GOOD ! and could help !
Believe me, I sent it out to my list as soon as I saw it this a.m. I hope everyone here can do the same.
Yeah - keep this post fresh- it needs to spread around. Maybe moderator Robinson can make it a top header.
He has credentials.
Contrasting this with the “Not gonna’ have to worry about gas/mortgage, Obama is gonna’ help me.” video is enough to make me sick.
Good video. Straight to the point. Wake up people.
