Blumenthal calls Vietnam comments misplaced words – How About Misplaced Honesty!

Blumenthal calls his repeated statements of having served in Viet Nam "misplaced words."  Once maybe but not multiple times.

This is what I call a "hype" form of deception.  It's the same kind of thing that some people use on their applications for jobs.  They want to create a particular persona in the mind of listener and therefore lead the listener to the wrong conclusion.

Nobody doubts his service to his country and choosing to serve in the US Marine Corps.  No one doubts his dedication to veterans issues. 

But a statement like this in front of the V.F.W. "When we returned from Vietnam, I remember the taunts, the verbal and
even physical abuse we encountered," are not a misplaced word or two.

People would respect his defense of veterans just as much even if he did not serve in Viet Nam.

Once the genie of deception is out of the bottle like this, it's hard to stuff them back in!  Spin isn't going to fix the deceit!
