It's a simple question: can Hillary Clinton manage the military when she questions the truthfulness of America's top general in Iraq?
Hillary Clinton to United States Army General David Petraeus in Senate Testimony...
"Despite what I view is your rather extraordinary efforts in your testimony both yesterday and today," said Clinton, "I think that the reports that you provide to us really require a willing suspension of disbelief."
This type of rabid political partisanship, reminiscent of the recent talking points of MoveOn.org, CodePink and other hard-left anti-war organizations, raises significant questions of Hillary Clinton's fitness to serve as the Commander-in-Chief of an all-volunteer military.
Considering the great lengths the military has undertaken in the areas of recruitment and retention of skilled, battle-tested veterans, one must ask how many seasoned military commanders and individual soldiers will simply "opt out" of a Hillary-led military?
Will her actions lead to a resumption of the "DRAFT" in America?
Will her actions lead to the imposition of mandatory extensions of duty which violates the contract between the soldiers and the United States military with regard to length of service?
Will Hillary try to establish a civilian-military coalition to further weaken the strength and resolve of the fighting forces?
Will Hillary override the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy and allow gays to openly serve in the military -- against military advice that this may be disruptive to moral and good conduct?
Will Hillary allow more women to serve in combat roles?
Will Hillary allow anti-war and sometimes anti-American third-parties greater access to military operations and secrets by opening the flow of information to such organizations as the International Red Cross, Amnesty International and the various partisan hard-left think tanks that purport to be "independent and impartial?"
Can Hilary be trusted by our top commanders when she seems willing to disparage one who is openly admired by both sides as a competent and honorable soldier who has devoted his life to the service of American interests?
Can Hillary be trusted with "State Secrets" which may confer some future political advantage if revealed to the public?
Will Hillary purse American soldiers for "war crimes" as suggested by members of the hard left -- to whom she blindly devotes her attention?
The major problem with Hillary and the Democrats... YOU JUST DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY STAND FOR OR WHAT THE MIGHT DO
It is readily apparent from their willingness to disparage the United States, the military and the leadership of this nation in a time of war, that you can not trust the democrat party (with the exception of Joseph Lieberman) to defend the United States against all enemies, both foreign and domestic.
You cannot believe either their rhetoric or their promises as they sway in the breeze -- their positions motivated by polls and focus groups. Their actions rooted in political expediency.
And I do not believe, for one moment, that you can trust Hilary to "not revert to type" and weaken this great nation.
What can YOU do?
Consider that Hillary is not Bill Clinton -- in intellect or demeanor. She appears to be a shrill shrew, slavishly devoted to leftist causes and apparently believing in the socialistic ideology requiring big government to control every aspect of an individual's life -- for their own good, of course.
Consider the implications of staking America's future on a junior Senator who believes that somehow gender, race or other non-character issues qualifies one for leadership. Or the implications of a party who would openly damage the reputation and resolve of America to regain their lost political power.
We are at the historical crossroads of a major culture shift amid virulent and deadly enemies -- vote as if your life depended on your decision -- because in the upcoming four years, it certainly will.
