People In Glass Houses

In an interview with the weekly public radio show “This American Life,” Seth Moulton, a former Marine Corps officer serving as a Democratic member of the United States House of Representatives, and candidate for president, has criticized President-elect Donald Trump on his lack of experience with the military, calling him a “draft dodger.” In a Senate-floor speech in January, Senator Tammy Duckworth (Democrat-Illinois), blasted President Donald Trump as a “five-deferment draft dodger”. Senator Duckworth is a veteran who lost both of her legs in 2004 while serving in the Iraq War. While both Representative Moulton and Senator Duckworth deserve the highest respect and gratitude for their service to our country, bringing up the “draft dodger” issue, might backfire on the leading Democratic candidate for President of the United States, Joe Biden. The Republicans can re cogitate the fact that Joe Biden, the leading Democratic candidate for President, according to an article by Randall Chase of the Associated Press, Published on September 1, 2008, it stated: “Democratic vice presidential nominee Joe Biden received five student draft deferments during the Vietnam War… and later was disqualified from service because of earlier asthma.” As a registered Democrat, it behooves us to keep in mind that “people who live in glass houses, should not throw stones”.
