Perhaps it's this pursuit that drove him to mumble this latest gem of incoherency.
No one is sure who exactly this is addressed to, since no one appears to be using veterans as "political pawns," but we are sure that if it was one of Lew oligarchical Republicans, he wouldn't be highlighting the issue.
These are strange words from someone who sought to immunize himself from political criticism by wrapping himself in the American flag and claiming that because he was a Vietnam Vet, he had some sort of moral authority that made it socially unacceptable to criticize him. Never mind that Lew's sole contribution to the Vietnam conflict was to make sure the Jesus nut on a helicopter was tight, a job he could have just as easily done at Ft. Campbell, KY as in Vietnam. Lew was in more danger chasing tail down in the 'ville than he was at his duty station.
Should we apply this same sort of logic to known leftist kook and Korean war vet Ed Barnes, who routinely forces his idiocy on us in public comments to the County Council? The next time that moron says anything that makes sense will be the first.
Lew is all about supporting veterans, except when he forgets that many of the people he derides and seeks to silence, among them David Madore, Frank Decker, Mark Engleman, Sean Emerson, Kelly Hinton and others, are also veterans. But they not the right kind of veterans to be respected by Lew, just like they're not the right kind of Republicans.
