SO WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME THE GUY WITH MORE MILITARY EXPERIENCE BECAME PRESIDENT?
David Limbaugh, the conservative author and brother of Rush, tweets an image you're likely to see again....
We patchouli-scented lefties and Democrats are all supposed to be quaking in our hemp sandals. But, um, why? Do you realize that the major-party candidate with less military experience became president as a result of the last five elections?
1992: Bill Clinton (no military service) beat Poppy Bush (World War II veteran).
1996: Clinton (no military service) beat Bob Dole (World War II veteran).
2000: George W Bush (Texas Air National Guard) "beat" Al Gore (Vietnam veteran).
2004: W (Texas Air National Guard) beat John Kerry (Vietnam combat veteran).
2004: Barack Obama (no military service) beat John McCain (Vietnam combat veteran, POW).
The culture war David Limbaugh is fighting? The American people don't give a crap. Or at least they haven't given a crap in a generation. Only the political world cares.
