Oh, ‘Bama, you’re so vain . . .

With his own “cocky ignorance and the media behind” him, whom need Cocky Locky fear?

He has written the Sec. of Defense, Thomas Sowell writes, “in a tone as if he is already President, addressing one of his subordinates,” calling for a “swift response,” about battlefield suicides and back-home homicides by U.S. troops.

He reacts with political acuteness to “the widely publicized statistic that suicide rates among American troops have gone up,” ignoring what has “not been widely publicized . . . that this higher suicide rate is still not as high as the suicide rate among demographically comparable civilians.”

He also buys the easily discredited NY Times story about homicides by veterans although “the homicide rate among returning veterans [has been shown to be ] a fraction of the homicide rate among demographically comparable civilians.”

So as candidate he badgers the guy running two wars, telling him to hop to it with whys and wherefores and what’s he gonna do about it?

Has he no shame?

    I have some problem with equating a presidential candidate pursuing the agenda he promised the voters as being “cocky” or “shameful.” The shame would be if he talked the talk then refused tryiung to walk the walk. From this voter’s perspective, he’s “acting presidential” because he intends to be president. As for “badgering” the guy running the war, perhaps he’s needed more badgering from the start. I suspect he sincerely believes history will prove him right…but that appears a very long shot to me

    I think it is presumptious of him to demand anything. Asking for information is one thing, demanding is quite another.

    I pray daily that our country will not be afflicted with this awful man as our president.
