Obama to stop McCain from questioning his patriotism

From Rawstory:

"Addressing the Veterans of Foreign Wars convention, Obama reaffirmed his early opposition to the U.S. invasion of Iraq and said the so-called "surge" strategy of sending 30,000 additional troops to Iraq last year had not produced the political reconciliation necessary to achieve lasting peace in the country
"These are the judgments I've made and the policies that we have to debate, because we do have differences in this election," Obama said. "One of the things that we have to change in this country is the idea that people can't disagree without challenging each other's character and patriotism. I have never suggested that Sen. McCain picks his positions on national security based on politics or personal ambition. I have not suggested it because I believe that he genuinely wants to serve America's national interest. Now, it's time for him to acknowledge that I want to do the same.

"Let me be clear: I will let no one question my love of this country," Obama said to applause."

What a worthless throw away comment. Is Obama going to give McCain a good talking to? This is politics, folks, the only way Obama can meaningfully respond is to assert why exactly he's not what McCain says he is. Otherwise, the McCain folks are just going to be chuckling and internally saying "Fuck you! Idiot" while giving Obama a mental middle finger.
