    Cable news rating are out and the funniest thing (well, aside from maybe CNN's rock bottom ratings until they can exploit another tragedy) is that the average age of a Fox viewer is pushing 70! Yikes. Pretty soon they're going to go from advertising prune juice and Depends to wills and cemetary plots.

    You know President Feckless is in trouble when even the New York Times piles on.

    https://mobile.nytimes.com/2014/05/29...html?referrer=

    President Obama and his aides heralded his commencement speech at the United States Military Academy at West Point on Wednesday as a big moment, when he would lay out his foreign policy vision for the remainder of his term and refute his critics. The address did not match the hype, was largely uninspiring, lacked strategic sweep and is unlikely to quiet his detractors, on the right or the left

    I'd hope so. Can't imagine he'd ever turf a vet for disagreeing with him. Would be a truly heinous act.

    Ah, you're picky about which vets you support, and turf the others. I see.

    More like I put WWII vets on a higher pedestal. However, I do have to wonder why you could be a George W Bush supporter (and you were Bob, right up until his poll #'s went south) given his disgusting whispering campaign about your senior senator's mental health during the 2000 campaign.

    Why? Vets who served after WWII are deserving of anything less? They all served their country as ordered by the commander-in-chief. You can't pick and choose like that.

    WWII vets from my experience (and that whole generation to be fair) are a special bunch. They fought in the worst conflict in world history, all pulled together to serve a higher purpose, then came home undettered by what they experienced and drove this country economically to new heights. If you aren't fortunate enough to have dealt with people from that era, I feel sorry for you.

    You fail to recall that I'm not a big John McCain fan. I think sometimes he's so busy on the national stage, he forgets what state he's in D.C. to represent. That said, McCain's service in Vietnam, including his lengthly stint as POW, hardly make him a lesser vet than WW2 folks. To me all vets deserve our respect, with extra kudos to those who were actually in harm's way.

    John McCain's service is to be commended. John McCain's lessons learned from his service are not. There's a list of like 10 places he currently wants to have US troops in right now (Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, Mali, Ukraine, Nigeria, etc etc). No. Thanks.

    Having said that, he didn't deserve the whispering campaign your hero W subjected him to, so much so McCain's own daughter says she still hates Bush's top advisor for it 14 years later....

    Great, but LBJ's been dead for what....40 years? Goldwater gave up the ghost about 20 years ago? You conservatives all fully supported George W Bush, who was President up until Jan of 2009 and who's slander affected a sitting US Senator, one who currently represents several USCHO posters in Congress. I can't speak to people's motivations for voting 50 years ago, but I do have to wonder why the "waive the bloody shirt" crowd has little problem with non-combat vet politicians smearing combat vets in the here and now, as long as the people doing the smearing are conservative...
