McCAIN'S NEW AD
Thanks to Dr.D at American Power (blogroll)for posting this first.
As anyone who has read this blog knows John McCain is a big hero of mine. As a fellow Vietnam Veteran I am excited about the prospect of having a brother in the White House. While I share in some small way his service, I am in no way equating my service with his. A comparison of McCain with his Dem challengers is unfair on its face. He is a hero who sacrificed an unbelievable amount for his country.
That is not to say that people who have not been in the military are not on an equal footing with those who have. The point I want to make is that McCain understands, as no other candidate, what it means to be ready to defend America. In Dr.D's blog he posted several who looked upon this commercial as a repudiation of Obama's patriotism. On the contrary, the commercial was verification of McCain's sacrifice for his country and his qualifications for this job. I don't want a president to learn on the job in this extremely trying time.
The debate rages between the Dems about who is ready on "Day One." McCain is the only one who can lay claim to being ready on "Day One." As the commercial says he has felt the fire and he is ready to lead us.
