SMACK: Take that POW McCain
And that should put an end to that lack of experience argument.Obama tells ABC’s George Stephanopoulos in an interview taped for “This Week”:
Obama disclosed that he had once considered serving in the military.
“You know, I actually did,” Obama said. “I had to sign up for Selective Service when I graduated from high school. And I was growing up in Hawaii. And I have friends whose parents were in the military. There are a lot of Army, military bases there.
“And I actually always thought of the military as an ennobling and, you know, honorable option. But keep in mind that I graduated in 1979. The Vietnam War had come to an end. We weren't engaged in an active military conflict at that point. And so, it's not an option that I ever decided to pursue.”
Only a DUer could construe this to be EXPERIENCE.
