VFW calls on its own PAC to stop endorsements ( Barbara Boxer and Klein )
ap ^ | October 13, 2010 | KEVIN FREKING

Endorsements from the Veterans of Foreign Wars Political Action Committee have so enraged many VFW members that its elected leaders have asked the PAC to immediately rescind all endorsements for next month's election.

Hundreds of VFW members have been calling the national headquarters in recent days to complain about some of the endorsements, particularly about two races — both featuring Democratic incumbents.

In one race, Sen. Barbara Boxer of California got the PAC's endorsement over Republican Carly Fiorina. In the other, Rep. Ron Klein of Florida got the endorsement over Republican and Iraq war veteran Allen West.

Meanwhile, Boxer said she was proud of the endorsement. "It just demonstrates I've worked hard for our veterans," she said.

As a veteran and California voter, I find that her ridiculous statement reminds me of some of the colorfully descriptive expressions that comprised our military colloquial landscape.

In fact, the term...LYING WHORE somehow comes to mind.

Absolutely disgusting. The VFW should overhaul its board and its management. To endorse communists after all our brace men have sacriiced in battle to keep this country free, beyond the pale. The VFW needs an enema.

My father-in-law (silver star, bronze star, 3 purple hearts and the French Croix de Guerre) is rolling in his grave. This dishonors him. General Patton would know how to deal with this bullshiite.

WOW!....”Call me Senator” Babs endorsed by the VFW??????????

After that slap of the military, I'd expect to see her picture as a target in the urinals of VFW halls....Not an endorsement!

My response to them will be....”Call me resigned”....Ive worked too hard for the title of “Veteran”

Liberals think that veterans are just a bunch of stupid oafs incapable of avoiding military service and whose vote can be bought with a few benefits trinkets thrown their way around election time. Just another set of victims deserving the paternal care of their superior beings, the Democrats.

The VFW seems to agree.

Bad idea. They should ALL serve at least four years in either the Marines or Army. They should have conservatives as Drill Instructors, and should not be allowed promotion past E-2 until proven worthy.

The leadership of VFW needs to be removed. The people responsible for this need to account for this idiocy. They must go. I’ll bet not one person in ten in the VFW who lives in CA would support Barbara Boxer. The people responsible for this need to be identified and slammed.

Thanks george76. Guess they realized that somebody found out about Boxer and Waxman's 'top secret' radical connections.

The Klien endorsement stinks most of all because of the NYC transplants and the insider buddy buddy nature of the senior citizens located in that part of FL. (aka god’s waiting room)
