Marvin Scott: The Gift That Keeps on Giving
During my normal "search for material" visit to Marvin Scott's Facebook page Sunday afternoon in between watching football games I found something. Marvin Scott, unbelievably, doesn't want to end the War on Terror. He wants to keep it going.
Scott's new radio ad is slickly produced and hits the false "Carson/Obama socialist agenda link" hot button quite well. Buried in the ad is a sentence that blew my mind. After calling Obama and Carson socialists, the announcer says, "And Carson and Obama aren't finished yet, with radical cap and trade laws that will destroy Indiana jobs, an end to the War on Terror, and illegal alien amnesty, Obama and Carson must be stopped before it's too late."
You can take that to mean many things. I take it to mean that Marvin Scott wants to keep the War on Terror going, indefinitely. Does that mean that he wants to continue to keep our troops in harm's way for longer than they need to be? That if some resolution can come in the War on Terror that he will continue to spend trillions of U.S. taxpayer dollars on warmongering? What does Marvin Scott mean?
Of course, it won't matter after November 2. Scott will be planning his next failed run at something. Won't this guy quit?
