Why don't you show us the admiration the 5,000 who died in vain in Iraq (see Iraq today) and the 32,000 maimed for life for GWB? Iraq and Afghanistan, like Vietnam, are failures, Rogue, defeats and all those dead and maimed for naught. Why don't you ask the population what IT thinks of those wars instead of the admiration of some handpicked troops for a shamed president? What was his approval rating in November 2008? 20%? You don't like to mention that, noooo, you mention troops, and like it or not, valiant and courageous as they are, they comprise about 3% of the population.You want to see (and hear) genuine respect and affection for a president? Just pick up this video at about 1:30. Bush gets a reception that Obama NEVER will because he does not have the same MUTUAL respect and admiration that Bush-43 has with our troops.
Finally, all this troop admiration. Does that somehow make him a good, competent president?
