Recall all of Bush's band of merry men, ALL of them were slackers or draft dodgers, Rumsfled, Cheney, Karl Rove, Bush himself, the whole kittenkaboodle, yet were so blood thirsty and hungry to spill blood, not their own, or any of their close friends and family.<quoted text>
Mitt Romney got 4 deferments from going to Nam which is fine except he spoke out in favor of the war but he isn't black so Christian conservatives call him a patriot.
I am a recent Vet and have no problem with those who got out of Nam and against Afghanistan (I am now also against it) but to actually be such a hypocrite as to support a war but than get out of it is typical republican filth "Do as I say not as I do".
Oh, yeah, I forgot about Bush and his FAMOUS aircraft carrier landing. I didn't know till much later that the carrier was floating peacefully in San Diego Harbor. From the original footage, they made it seem like they were in the middle of the Persian Gulf. Who can forget Bush prancing around on deck in his little flight suit waving like a Rose Parade princess, then him being in his suit within minutes, like James Bond. I am betting that is the most action he EVER saw his illustrious military career.
