Veteran and Military Dad: Karl Says It Because He Can Get Away With It
I served for four years in the USN [info withheld] and sixteen in the
USAF for a total of over 20 years of service. Honorably discharged out of Lackland AFB,TX as a MSGT. For the past several years I've listened to my patriotism
questioned by pundits and talking heads such as Ann Coulter. Surely you've heard of her.
Anyway, what Rove said was no different to what was done to Senator Max Cleland. He lost three body parts in Vietnam yet he lost his bid for re-election due to the campaign against him, by republicans, in which he was compared to bin Laden and Saddam. Also the same thing was done to Tom Dasche. He lost hid bid for
re-election by being compard to Saddam. And don't forget how they trashed and belittled John Kerry's medals.
My point is this: these people attack without shame and they get away with it and it is effective for them. Notice how the above three men lost. That's why Rove attacked liberals the way he did. He knows that he'll get away with it. There is some outrage now but not nearly enough. And soon the cares of this world and events in life will cause many to lose focus.
We need to vote these people out of office but if you get your news from Fox then you might think that the war in Iraq is going fabulously well. Dick Cheney just said the insurgency is in "the last throes" which is a LIE and he knows it but he'll lie to your face again and again and again. I told you they have no shame.
I would suggest that we keep listening to Air America Radio because at least they keep putting the truth out. By the way, my son, a LCPL in the USMC, just got back from Afghanistan so I'm happy about that.
