From Sweden: John McCain's Newly Discovered POW Release Video

With news today that Barack Obama has yet again played the age card, perhaps it might be best if Barack Obama stopped calling John McCain old. As you can see, from this just-discovered video from Sweden showing McCain's release as a Vietnamese POW in 1973, John McCain was old at the age of 37. Five and a half years of captivity can do that to a person. It is really horrible to think that Obama, whose supporters include the old 60's and 70's radical anti-war crowd, is following the old tradition of his radical supporters, which included spitting on servicemen returning from Vietnam.

At the time that this video was taken, Barack Obama was a 7th grader at a fancy private school in Hawaii. While Obama likely was too young at the time to remember the horror stories of returning servicemen in those days, many of us cannot forget. Rather than the agent of change, Barack Obama is talking like a loser. Reopening the wounds of Vietnam is not just ill-advised, it is evil. I cannot think of a better way to energize the Republican base than to pick on John McCain's infirmities from war service. Barack Obama has led a charmed life, and he ought to count his blessings.
