The Vice-President is at it again. While his boss says he welcomes debate on all issues, including those of sending more troops to Iraq, the Vice-President has another take, and that is to paint those who differ in their opinions to his as being not only unpatriotic, but lending aid and comfort to the enemy.
Said the Vice-President "I think if we were to do what Speaker Pelosi and Congressman Murtha are suggesting, all we will do is validate the al-Qaida strategy" and he continued. "The strategy is to break the will of the American people...to persuade us to throw in the towel and come home, and then they win because we quit."
Who the hell is "we"?
For a man who said he had more important things to to than fight in Viet Nam, and got not one, not two, not three, not four, but at least five deferments for that conflict and then to be so bold as to say some Americans don't "have the stomach" for war is unconscionable at best, and lunacy at worst.
Shut up already.
If he is so convinced that anyone who disagrees with him is unpatriotic or giving aid to the enemy, then bring charges against them.
This man has done more disservice to this country than any other Vice-President in recent memory. He can boast all he wants, but he should be ashamed of himself for advocating the sending of more young people to this war when he, himself, chose not to defend it when his turn came up.
I'm tired of hearing him go on and on about things that are rattling about in his head. Like his statement on the British pullout of troops; "I look at it and see it is actually an affirmation that there are parts of Iraq where things are going pretty well."
Uh...is he serious? They're pulling out because things are going so well? Is he serious?
Thank goodness at least Speaker Pelosi had a nice comment about that statement. Said Pelosi "If it's going so well, we'd like to withdraw our troops as well."
