Fred Thompson spoke about John McCain's heroism aboard the USS Foresttal. His years enduring torture and isolation in the hands of his NVA captors. Even mentioned John's wild days as the "leader of the troublemakers" at the US Naval Academy. When Obama's little video about his "community organizing days" in Chicago is put next to this, there is no comparison.
Listening to Fred Thompson, as he went through his litany of well derserved accolades for John McCain these words also came to mind:
We use words like honor, code, loyalty...we use these words as the backbone to a life spent defending something. You use 'em as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom I provide, then questions the manner in which I provide it! I'd rather you just said thank you and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon and stand a post. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you're entitled to!
