Finally, someone says what ALL veterans in the background have been saying all along. It truly is amazing, and absurd that the most military “hawks” have never defended their country, or even worn the uniform in peacetime.
So let’s see,….
* John Kerry, combat vet. Rush Limbaugh, prescription drug vet.
* Colin Powell, combat vet, Dick Cheney, Duck hunting vet.
* George Bush, oh wait he served. Defending Texas from an air invasion from Cancun, John McCain,, combat vet and POW
Looks like it 3-0 of true honorable men vs. the lip talkers
Statement of John Kerry Responding to Republican Distortions, Pathetic Tony Snow Diversions and Distractions
Washington Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Senator John Kerry issued the following statement in response to White House Press Secretary Tony Snow, assorted right wing nut-jobs, and right wing talk show hosts desperately distorting KerryÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s comments about President Bush to divert attention from their disastrous record:
Ã¢â‚¬Å“If anyone thinks a veteran would criticize the more than 140,000 heroes serving in Iraq and not the president who got us stuck there, they’re crazy. This is the classic G.O.P. playbook. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m sick and tired of these despicable Republican attacks that always seem to come from those who never can be found to serve in war, but love to attack those who did.
IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m not going to be lectured by a stuffed suit White House mouthpiece standing behind a podium, or doughy Rush Limbaugh, who no doubt today will take a break from belittling Michael J. FoxÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s ParkinsonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s disease to start lying about me just as they have lied about Iraq. It disgusts me that these Republican hacks, who have never worn the uniform of our country lie and distort so blatantly and carelessly about those who have.
The people who owe our troops an apology are George W. Bush and Dick Cheney who misled America into war and have given us a Katrina foreign policy that has betrayed our ideals, killed and maimed our soldiers, and widened the terrorist threat instead of defeating it. These Republicans are afraid to debate veterans who live and breathe the concerns of our troops, not the empty slogans of an Administration that sent our brave troops to war without body armor.
Bottom line, these Republicans want to debate straw men because theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re afraid to debate real men. And this time it wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t work because weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re going to stay in their face with the truth and deny them even a sliver of light for their distortions. No Democrat will be bullied by an administration that has a cut and run policy in Afghanistan and a stand still and lose strategy in Iraq.Ã¢â‚¬Â
