Did Howard Dean endorse John McCain for Commander in Chief?
In March 2004 Howard Dean, Chairman of the DNC, said this –
“The real issue is this, who would you rather have in charge of the defense of the United States of America, a group of people who never served a
day overseas in their life, or a guy who served his country honorably and has three Purple Hearts and a Silver Star on the battlefields of
Of course, at that time he was out trying to sell the democrat - John "Winter Soldier" Kerry - to the American public to be Commander in Chief.
Let’s see if we can do the math as Howard Dean requested in March 2004 -
Hillary Rodham Clinton – military service = 0
Barack Hussain Obama – military service = 0
John Sidney McCain – military service = Naval Pilot and Vietnam War hero. Awards include the Silver Star, Legion of Merit, Bronze Star, Purple
Heart, and Distinguished Cross.
John McCain - The son and grandson of admirals
Of course now that a republican is running for POTUS and he has an impressive military service record, Dean says the ‘real issue’ is now this -
"While we honor McCain's military service, the fact is Americans want a real leader who offers real solutions, not a blatant opportunist who
doesn't understand the economy and is promising to keep our troops in Iraq for 100 years.”
Memo to Dean – Being proud of serving this country in the military and of having an unquestionably great service record isn’t ‘blatant
opportunism’. It’s a fact. John McCain has every right to be proud of loving his country more than himself. It’s a rare quality. And as far
as opportunists running who are not offering ‘real solutions’ – ya’ best take a look at the ‘hope and change’ rhetoric as well as the
economic thoughts of Barack Obama … yikes!
