Frederick calls candidate's statements
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Richmond, Virginia (July 22, 2008) – Today, Senator Barak Obama, Democratic candidate for President of the United States stated that he would still vote against the military surge in Iraq, even after admitting that the surge was successful.
Delegate Jeff Frederick, Chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia issued the following statement in response:
"It is incredible that a man who seeks to be Commander-in-Chief of our armed forces would oppose a military mission, despite knowing that it would succeed.
The American people need to take a moment and think about this. Notwithstanding the fact that the surge has saved the lives of soldiers and civilians, and despite that it has vastly improved the situation in Iraq, Barack Obama still would oppose it today. Unbelievable.
This is an unprecedented admission by a major party candidate of loyalty to partisan politics above all else; politics above the safety of our troops; and politics above the security of our nation against those that seek to do us and our way of life harm.
With nearly every public statement, Barack Obama exhibits his complete lack of a qualifications and judgment to hold our nation’s highest office, and this most recent comment only reinforces that view."
