No surprise here I guess. The Democrats look past the character flaws of their chosen candidate and endorse the man with a glass jaw.
From the Courant: “”I have made mistakes,” Blumenthal told the crowd at the state Democratic Party nominating convention in Hartford. “I regret them. And I have taken responsibility. But this campaign must be about the people of Connecticut.”
In an acceptance speech that lasted 12 minutes, Blumenthal never once mentioned the word “Vietnam.”
He mentioned his troubles, however, in the speech.
“This week, as you all know, I have a little bit of a tough time myself,” Blumenthal told the crowd at the beginning of his speech at about 8:10 p.m. “You all have been hearing what my wife, Cynthia, has been telling me for almost 30 years – that I am not perfect. That I make mistakes.”
To the fighting tune of “I Won’t Back Down” by rock artist Tom Petty, Blumenthal walked onstage for his speech. The song played again as he waved to the crowd, with his wife, Cynthia, after his remarks.”
I personally I find it disgraceful on two fronts. The evidence clearly shows it wasn’t a few misplaced words but a purposeful attempt to mislead Connecticut citizens and leave an impression he served in Vietnam. No big deal to these people.
Secondly, the Dumbicrats are thumbing their noses at Connecticut voters who they think won’t care. This is how much they take the seat for granted. Un Connecticut it’s not the peoples seat. it belongs to the Democrat machine.
I’m disgusted. Remember November 2010.
