Bombshell: Democratic Senate candidate lied about serving in Vietnam; Update: Blumenthal responds, sort of...

Even the 'good' democrats can't seem to tell the truth. BUT neither can The New York Times. BUT Richard Blumenthal did say he served IN Vietnam, not 'during' Vietnam.

“We have learned something important since the days that I served in Vietnam,” Mr. Blumenthal said to the group gathered in Norwalk in March 2008. “And you exemplify it. Whatever we think about the war, whatever we call it — Afghanistan or Iraq — we owe our military men and women unconditional support.”…

In 2003, he addressed a rally in Bridgeport, where about 100 military families gathered to express support for American troops overseas. “When we returned, we saw nothing like this,” Mr. Blumenthal said. “Let us do better by this generation of men and women.”…

The New Haven Register on July 20, 2006, described him as “a veteran of the Vietnam War,” and on April 6, 2007, said that the attorney general had “served in the Marines in Vietnam.” On May 26, 2009, The Connecticut Post, a Bridgeport newspaper that is the state’s third-largest daily, described Mr. Blumenthal as “a Vietnam veteran.” And The Shelton Weekly reported on May 23, 2008, that Mr. Blumenthal “was met with applause when he spoke about his experience as a Marine sergeant in Vietnam."

It does not appear that Mr. Blumenthal ever sought to correct those mistakes…

NOTE- We're already familiar with and don't trust Attorney General Richard Blumenthal. See VIDEO below to see Glenn Beck destroy Blumenthal for NOT going after the most corrupt Senator in America, Chris Dodd.

As for the female Marine (WM) in the above video defending Richard Blumenthal with the lame excuse that serving DURING the war on American soil during Desert Storm is called serving IN the war and 'that's how we talk' in the military, that's not true. She's LYING. That's not how WE talk. It's called serving DURING the war, not IN it.

We think Attorney General Blumenthal is a weasel. See the video below to see what kind of typical politician he really is. Unfortunately, a few veterans get into politics and become disgraceful, just look at John Kerry and John Murtha...this guy isn't much different.
