Re: “Corker vs. Ford: Who Won the Battle of Wilson Air?

I kinda think most have missed the entire point. Its not about style or scoring points or stealing news cycles. It's not about looking senatorial, neither candidate really looked that. Ford was a tad brash and Corker was caught whining. But hey in the heat of the moment each candidate gets a pass there. NO one has mentioned what I think to be most important line of the whole confrontation, when Ford turns and walks toward Corker and says "What about this Iraq thing?" Seriously, Bob. What about this Iraq thing? 80 US soliders dead this month alone, we've still got 8 days to go. Its been the bloodiest month in over 2 years there. There is no end in sight and Mr. Corker nor his backers have any idea how to stop or slow the bloodshed. What about this Iraq thing? Its only the most important issue to confront our nation since the end of the Cold War and you have nothing. Government ethics is important don't get me wrong, but Corker wasnt there to talk about some groundbreaking ethics package that revitalize the US House and US Senate and free each chamber from the hold of Special Interests. In truth, his proposal was quite lame. He was using Memphis as his background to re-talk and re-focus his attacks on Harold Sr and again attempt to imply that SR lobbies Jr although the Corker campaign has admitted no evidence exists to prove that. What about this Iraq thing? This should be the new rallying cry for all Ford supporters. Corker went to the airport hoping to launch a broadside attack on the Ford Family thru the guise of a "Government Ethics Reform" package, Ford Jr went there looking for answer about "this Iraq thing" from an opponent that has done nothing put talk out of both sides of his mouth on this issue (see "stay the Course" video on this blog. What about this Iraq thing?
