Vet: A New Strategy, Divide and Win
I enlisted in the Air Force in 1967, served in Vietnam and stayed in service until 1993, a total of 26 plus years. So that means I was around for Desert Storm also. I consider myself an American before I consider myself a Democrat. And I am not sure I really like the label Democrat or Liberal. I don't owe my allegiance to either of those causes. But I resent Karl Rove playing this game and once again dividing this country for the sake of political gain. When we were struck on 9-11 there were no Republicans and Democrats only Americans. One lone person in Congress voted against going after those who attacked us. That tells me people of all political stripes supported going after those who attacked us. There is only one reason Rove is using this tack now, things are not going well for Bush and he is going to do whatever it takes to reverse that regardless of the consequences. We need people in office and positions of power who put America first, not this sort of trash.
