As Usual, The Democrats Drop The Ball

What a prime opportunity that slipped through their hands yet again.

When Kerry alluded to the very real fact that if young people don't play the system and do something with their lives or they might very well wind up in a uniform in Bumfuckistan, the brownshirts went ballistic. What, are you calling our troops stupid? How dare you, you commie traitor! The troops are our toys, we own them and all the sentiments and hoopla and flag waving and national defense issues dontcha know.

The fact is, the military has been targetting less qualified, less motivated, more socially maladjusted (read poor, but less priviledge doesn't mean less intelligence no matter what the idiotic spin is) young people because their recruitment quotas have plain sucked in recent months. But all that can be debated and it's not really the point. Where the hapless Kerry and virtually all the so called opposition party failed is to not go far enough in pointing out how the military under the criminal cabal royally screws the troops.

How they let recruiters lie to the enlistees.
How they use troop extensions, stop-loss orders, involuntary recalls and multiple deployments as a back door draft.
How veteran's benefits are constantly under attack.
How the pentagon is deliberately sending troops into a toxic environment that will sicken and kill them.
How the mass murderers lied them into getting maimed and dying in Iraq and for what again?

What the spineless democrats should be saying is yeah, get your education, look at all your options, but before you enlist be aware of what the fascists are doing to the military.

Actually if you listen to what Kerry said, he never mentioned the troop and was in fact referring to George W. Bush as being stupid. The Republicans immediately spun it to be about the troops, but it wasn't.

Yup, you're right Lesley. Amazing how Kerry just crawled away and the other dems kept their distance. Why don't they fight this garbage?

The one that really pissed me off was Hillary Clinton. She just gave into the Rep propaganda and spent yesterday saying how wrong it was of Kerry to say such a thing. It is one of many times Hillary has done such a thing, I hope she doesn't become the nominee because I could not possibly vote for her.
