In Wesley Clark’s appearance on Face the Nation last Sunday, one of the counts in Clark’s indictment against John McCain’s purported lack of executive experience was that “[McCain] hasn’t been there and ordered the bombs to fall.” The implied contrast Clark drew was with Clark himself rather than with Barack Obama. Obama has few achievements to his name beyond his electoral success.
Even though Clark was appearing as an Obama surrogate when he made the comments on McCain, the implied contrast Clark drew was obviously with Clark himself rather than with Obama. Obama has no executive experience. On the “bombs away” count in Clark’s indictment, Ed Morrissey adds: “Barack Obama hasn’t ordered the bombs to fall, although to be fair, he has associated himself with someone who has — William Ayers.”
