    After Rockefeller Insult, McCain Camp Claims Obama Won’t Shut Down Campaign Smears

    EXCERPT

    “McCain was a fighter pilot, who dropped laser-guided missiles from 35,000 feet. He was long gone when they hit,” Rockefeller told the newspaper, which published the article on the interview Tuesday.

    “What happened when they [the missiles] get to the ground? He doesn’t know. You have to care about the lives of people. McCain never gets into those issues,” he is quoted saying.

    On Tuesday, Rockefeller issued a statement, saying, “I have deep respect for John McCain’s honorable and noble service to our country. I made an inaccurate and wrong analogy and I have extended my sincere apology to him.

    Rockefeller joins the ranks of democrats like Durbin, Kennedy, Pelosi, and Kennedy, and Murtha who can't seem to resist disparaging the service of our troops.

    Democrats just can't seem to help themselves.

    No one can take away from McCain how he stayed a POW after being offered a chance to go home.

    I can only hope I would have done the same...
