Connecticut Democratic Attorney General Richard Blumenthal has similarities to the biggest chicken hawk the world has seen, Dick Cheney. Blumenthal is not as bad as Cheney. He tried hard to stay out of the military durring the Viet Nam war, he had 5 deferments. When the deferments ran out he joined the Marines but never served in Viet Nam yet he is talking about his time in Viet Nam. It is very honorable to serve. To not serve and say you did is unexcusable. To serve and embellish combat is not good. To use deferments to not serve in war and then in your adult political life you become an extreme hawk sending many to war is unexcusable. To not serve and admit it is honest. One thing is sure, Richard Cheney and Richard Blumenthal are both Dicks.
