Did He Really Say This?

I didn't get to watch all of the Obama speech tonight, so I read the transcript which is apparently available through The Corner, and the New York Times. Besides the enormous amount of scripted boilerplate that is pretty much verbatim of what all democrats have been whining about since Bush took office, there was this one line that stuck out considerably as Mr. Obama was discussing his non-policy of foreign policy......

You know, John McCain likes to say that he'll follow bin Laden to the gates of Hell, but he won't even follow him to the cave where he lives.

Obama hasn't served in the military, and neither have several other great presidents, so I don't consider that a prerequisite for running for president.

However, I think it is the height of arrogance and contempt (not to mention UNTRUE) for Mr. Obama to claim that a guy who spent several years being tortured by the Vietcong is somehow afraid of going to a farking cave in Afghanistan.
