"You know I’ve got four young kids, and they gotta sit there and gotta see an ad with their dad—who served honorably, talk to anybody I served with—whether as a pilot or as a SEAL, anybody I worked with," Gomez said. "And for him to be as dirty and low, pond scum, like to put me up next to Bin Laden, he’s just gotta be called what he is. That simple."
You might remember that multiple fact-checkers have said that Gomez is pretty much lying about that. Markey has never compared Gomez to bin Laden; the ad in question used footage from an MSNBC interview with Gomez where he was defending a group that was trying to swiftboat President Obama over the bin Laden killing. A group, by the way, that Gomez says he wasn't a part of, even while he was acting as the organization's spokesman.
Maybe Gomez was a completely honorable Navy SEAL, but he's sure not an honorable candidate. And he's awfully thin-skinned for a tough guy.
