I hate to break it to Ms.Rhodes, but I'm an older white woman, and I guess high school is undereducated? Married with children and grandchildren to a veteran of VN,Beirut and Gulf War 1. We have a really good "clean" life.
Now I know what those young Rutgers ladies felt like when Imus called them nappy headed hos.
I hope Obamas supporters are as outraged as I am, it's clearly a smear for chuckles and ratings.
I like both candidates, but since JRE suspended, I'm saving time, money and trouble and watching from the sidelines.
However, I find myself being pulled towards the Clinton camp because she is definitely the more likable and tougher of the two, which will make a big difference in the GE. I wish I could add some in depth political analysis here, but I've always found liking a candidate is the first requirement towards electibility.
I know her "embelished" war story is being used against her, but it still shows how very brave she was to be in a WAR ZONE.
My husband, a VN vet, said you're always hearing live rounds no matter how secured an area you're in.
Nor does the media show the other areas she visited on that trip. Chances are she did indeed walk from her transport to the troops rather quickly sometimes, you don't want your VIP to be a "standing target".
Anyhow, hubby's a McCain Republican, and was impressed to see Hillary in the field :D
As for myself, still an Edwards Democrat, I'm leaning towards her spunk, fight and toughness against the moronic media mudslinging ratings war. You go girl !
