Is Jim Webb Unhinged?--Freep Poll (Vanity)
OldCorps ^ | 23 March 2007 | OldCorps

Posted on 03/28/2007 6:26:55 AM PDT by OldCorps

Fox news covered some of Sen. Webb's press conference yesterday in which he discussed the circumstances surrounding the arrest of one of his assistants for posession of a weapon and ammunition on the capital grounds. Being a former infantry soldier, I cut Sen. Webb a lot of slack because he has seen combat up close and was awarded the Navy Cross. However, he did seem a little...too intense at the interview and it appeared he was hanging a subordinate out to dry, which we military guys don't like even though it happens all the time.

So, what do you think fellow freepers?

Coming unglued implies that he was glued at some point.

His face is begining to look like one of those singing raisins from the 80s. "Heard it from the grapevine...ohohhhh!"

P.S. I told as many Virginians as possible that it would be a big mistake to elect him. Too many of them didn't listen.

That is a deer in the headlights if I've ever seen one. Webb was so eager to play with the big kids, and now he's finding out how fun it is. Not. He seems to be distancing himself from this long-time aide who actually campaigned for him; let the guy sit in a DC jail (think Third World country) for more than a day, apparently didn't do much to get him out. The people of Virgnia have elected themselves a schmuck. I vote for unhinged.

Yep, the guy is a real piece of art. But we knew he was unhinged when he rhetorically hoisted the boy up, didn't we?

Do not think his Military credentials should override his politics; but yes, saw the same. Surprised, but 'barely' that the Libs on the Fox circuit last night, saw a different Jim. . .'addressing the issue forthrightly'. . .rather than his 'hanging out' his Aide to dry on this one.

But the truth of the matter, as per usual, I might add. . .does not favor Jim Webb. His explanation was vague; words that gave no meaning to the substance were thrown in and around so that his 'story' as shared gave no clarification, rather only obfuscation of what really happened here.

Dude, we knew that before he was elected. We all said so. The greatest tragedy was what the WaPo did to George Allen.

He makes McCain look sane.

I don't call him Senator Ass for nothing.

Webb wrote scenes that are quite lewd
And now his aid has been screwed
In macacca Jim stepped
And so we have leapt
To the conclusion he’s coming unglued.

Obviously the problem is that Webb doesn't have a DC license for that gun, and he is setting himself up with unlawful posession himself if he says too much, and he knows it.

Webb says assistant made 'unfortunate' error having gun

WASHINGTON -- Virginia Sen. Jim Webb said Tuesday that his executive assistant made an "enormously unfortunate" error when he inadvertently tried to carry a loaded pistol into a Senate office building Monday.

...Snip...

"I think this is one of those very unfortunate situations where, completely inadvertently, he took the weapon into the Senate yesterday," Webb said.

...Snip...

Thompson, who spent his 45th birthday in a Washington, D.C., jail, told police that the gun belonged to Webb and had been given to him temporarily for safekeeping, according to a court record. But Webb, at a Capitol news conference, declined to say who owned the gun. "I have never carried a gun in the Capitol complex, and I did not give the weapon to Phillip Thompson," he said.

He sounds like a despicable individual. And no, I don't care if he carries a pistol to work in his briefcase...but throwing an employee under the bus like that when he could easily diffuse the situation...despicable.

IMO, all he did was deny he gave the gun to the aide.

He didn't deny the gun was his.

The aide probably didn't even know the gun was in the bag. heh-heh. /s

In the Senate, "executive assistant" means the guy who drives the senator around and carries the handbag, if your senator is female, or briefcase, if your senator is a male. This person has no legislative or policy respnsibilities whatsoever. He is a well paid handmaiden to Webb.

I think he's an angry whackjob. Why is he carrying a loaded revolver into Congress anyway?

Why do Democrats constantly break the rules and get away with it?
