    wanted to be sure before I responded but in no way does Obama accuse him of not caring about veterans. I think Obama's statement is a valid criticism. McCain does think the package is too generous and he told us why. Unfortunately his response was truly partisan posturing. I'm a vet, you're not, therefore how dare you talk to me or debate me on this. This is very important because US military services and foreign policy are going to be big issues in this campaign.

    I just don't see anything at all vicious about this. Sorry.

      have a tendency to turn into a bunch of paranas when talking about the opposition. And we've all had a taste of this during the primary campaign.

      I just wish people would learn to try to see things from the other point of view instead of immediately attacking because that's essential to understanding how people who don't share your philosophy are going to react.

      And no, Obama didn't directly imply that McCain didn't care about veterans, but he implied that partisanship was more important to him.
