“And I actually always thought of the military as an ennobling and, you know, honourable 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.“
That was Barack Obama Sunday morning on This Week with George Snuffaluffagus.
Now, for a man who at the age of 46 has already written 2 (YES, TWO!) autobiographies without the ability to litter the pages, or even sully them slightly, with accomplishments, it’s rather hard to believe he had this thought since it surely would have rated high enough for inclusion.
Who sits around and thinks, “Hmm, I would join the military but there’s no war on right now and I don’t want to just sit around not shooting at people or getting shot at, so I’ll pass.” Come on!
If he thought about it he thought about it for less time that it takes to fill out a Selective Service Card.
Everyone knows he wasn’t in the military and John McCain was, anyone either of those stories matter to isn’t going to vote for the other for that reason. Get over it, Barack! You can’t write your history twice and then rewrite it simply because something that isn’t true sounds better.
