Obama got pwn3d. . .

. . .by Senator McCain yesterday in what is a masterpiece of a response to the charge that he doesn't care about the troops. First, he landed this bone-crunching body blow:
Unlike Senator Obama, my admiration, respect and deep gratitude for America's veterans is something more than a convenient campaign pledge.

Then, after going on at some length to spell out the facts surrounding the issue, and that he has offered legislation that increases veterans' benefits while encouraging reenlistment -- something that the bill that was voted on in the Senate yesterday failed to do -- he puts Obama on the mat with a right cross to his glass jaw:
Perhaps, if Senator Obama would take the time and trouble to understand this issue he would learn to debate an honest disagreement respectfully. But, as he always does, he prefers impugning the motives of his opponent, and exploiting a thoughtful difference of opinion to advance his own ambitions. If that is how he would behave as President, the country would regret his election.

I suspect Obama regrets his decision to take on McCain in this instance. He clearly came out on the losing side this time.

Here's a bit of free advice for the Illinois senator: avoid talking about military issues for the rest of the campaign. It's not your strong suit.
