Cindy McCain Blasts Obama

BETHLEHEM, PA.) – It’s not just the Republican ticket criticizing Barack Obama – now the candidate’s spouse has some harsh words for their Democratic rival.

“Let me tell you just a little something that I was not so happy about. My son, like so many others, and today like the Palin’s son, have served on the front lines, helping keep peace and helping freedom for other people. I’m a blue star mom, just like Gov. Palin is. I’m proud of my sons, but let me tell you, the day that Sen. Obama decided to cast a vote to not fund my son when he was serving sent a cold chill through my body,” Cindy McCain said.

“I would suggest that Sen. Obama change shoes with me for just one day, and see what it means, and see what it means to have a loved one serving in the armed forces, and more importantly, serving in harms way. I suggest he take a day and go watch our fine young men and women deploy, get on those busses and leave with a smile and a charge.”

It’s the first time Mrs. McCain has taken such an aggressive stance towards her husband’s rival. She often introduces Sen. McCain and Gov. Palin, and she has spoken about their son’s military service, but she has not delved into actively attacking Sen. Obama.

The McCains have two sons in the military: their oldest son Jack is at the Naval Academy, and their younger son Jimmy is a Marine stationed in Iraq. Palin’s son Track is in the Army and deployed to Iraq on September 11th of this year.
