BTW Senator Robert Byrd used to be in the KKK.
Frankly the military overall loves President Bush.
He's as much a part of the military as the people on that ship
Three seperate responses from people who just seem to skate merrily on by the fact that in 1968, George Bush Sr. pulled strings to keep his newly graduated son out of the 'war for niggers and rednecks', Vietnam, by parking his ass in the Texas Air National Guard (I guess the Connecticut Air Guard was plumb full up). And that for close to a year during that service, this frat boy pussy didn't even show up for duty.
I'm calling bullshit on all of you. If this pathetic record belonged to Clinton, Gore, Daschle or anyone to the left of Tom Delay, we wouldn't....hear...the....f**king....end..of it
from you crass right wing apologists. As it is we heard 8 years of 'draft dodger' about Clinton just because he wrote back from England (where he was at ...school) to his draft board that he didn't agree with the war...BUT, in the interest of further ambition, said he would not object to being drafted. He had a high lottery number. End of story. And you people got 'draft dodger' out of that and for 8 years, the """liberal""""(cough..BULLSHIT) media went along with you.
In homage to the Founding Father's solemn and steadfast insistance that this be a republic governed by civillians, no President in modern history has donned a military uniform in an official capacity....even those who more than earned the right to, like Eisenhower who destroyed Hitler and Kennedy who saved his PT
boat crew. And likewise, to their eternal credit, the United States Armed Forces, potentially the most powerful controlling force in human history, have ALWAYS acquiesed to the will of civillians. George W. Bush disgraced the military and the Presidency by happily climbing into a military flight suit that REGULAR people have to go through years of sweat , toil and danger to earn.
And his Administration LIED to the American people by telling us the Abe Lincoln
was too far out for anything other than a dashing Tom Cruise-style arrival aboard the S-3. The Goebbelesque positioning of the supercarrier, her crew (crammed on the foredeck to give that impressive effect of 'the President' strolling alone triumphantly across those empty square acres of sovereign US fighting machine), the F-18...all belied the fact that had the damn camera turned 180, you'd see the skyline of San Diego.
L-I-E. Not about a blowjob to a 'special prosecutor'. LIE to all of us
. And you shills bought it hook, line and drooling sinker.
I don't know what the f**k Senator Byrd was
, what he belonged to, where he was born or what his favorite flavor of ice cream is. But I do know the guy has a look and demeanor about him that oozes time earned wisdom. And God Bless Him for, a man who's patriotism and devotion to America cannot
be called into question, standing up and chiding this spolied brat egomaniac we have in the White House.
