Dems red-faced over veteran imposter

WASHINGTON — Rick Strandlof, executive director of the Colorado Veterans Alliance and the man most colleagues knew as Rick Duncan, was front and center during the 2008 political campaigns in Colorado.

He spoke at a Barack Obama veterans rally in front of the Capitol in July, co-hosted several events with then- congressional candidate Jared Polis and attacked Republican Senate candidate Bob Schaffer in a TV ad paid for by the national group

And the mostly Democratic candidates he supported — looking for credibility on veterans issues and the war — lapped it up apprec

What is it with the vetting process by our media in election campaigns. You can rest assured that if this guy was named Joe The Plumber, he would have been skewered by the media.
I dont neccesarily agree with the premise of the article that this is the Democrats fault. This just shows how our media is very selective in how they approach different sides in political campaigns. Our media et al is treasonous and dangerous to the Republic. The media is supposed to be our watchdog against the government.

Rush Limbaugh warned Democrats about supporting PHONY SOLDIERS. They seem to fall for it all the time.

Meet the original Phony Soldier that fooled the Democrats the first time.

Jesse Adam Macbeth (b. Jesse Adam Al-Zaid,[1] in 1984) is an anti-war protester who falsely claimed to be an Army Ranger and veteran of the Iraq War. He lied in alternative media interviews that he and his unit routinely committed war crimes in Iraq.

It seems that if you speak out against the war and you claim to be a soldier or veteran, you become the Democrats best questions asked.

Well, with Pelosi - the highest ranking House member telling bald-faced lies to the House in interviews about the so-called torture issue, why wouldn't these low-level democrat operatives also think lying was OK? And so they do ...

Then we have Obama himself lying about closing Gitmo.

Lies upon lies.

A house of lies.

Let me think.

Obama's big military veteran supporter was a fraud?

Now we find ACORN was committing voter fraud?

Pelosi is lying her ass off?

And we still don't have a clue who this Barack Obama is?

But we do know he's violating campaign promises left and right?

Folks, we're in a hell of a mess.

Why do all the usual "proud to be a lefty/dem" ATS members always ever so conveniently choose to ignore threads like these?
Bummer, I love reading the excuses they come up with when they defend the actions of these demo-frauds.
Maybe that's becoming a full time job?

We aren't the ones who are to bame for this type of behavior. There is a prevelent feeling that whole brigades of soldiers are just itching to come forth and tell all the terible things they have done in wars. Mostly when actualy investigated, there are those that are reluctant to identify with this idea. Most are definatly NOT thinking they have done the things our Democratic party is always accusing our military of. These Dems also forget that in the last 60 years, it has been the Dems (except for Iraq) that got us into the wars and the Republicans that have gotten us out!
But then again, these folks have always had faulty memories of things they have done that helped destroy this country! Now with pretty much both parties involved in CYA these days, I am amazed that third party candidates have not been a bigger force in our elections! Maybe its finaly time!

That banner in your Signature cracks me up,LOL good one!!

The democrats were were told a 1 1/2 that something was fishy about this guy by a 1997 navy academy grad that could not find this impostor in the academy year book.

They were also told that the unit that this impostor claimed to have served in did not exist.

Even after being told they still did not vet him.

He is about the 5th fake vet that i know of the that the democrats have used in the last 20 years
