Democrats.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vLuMWiQ6r2o Do you really support our military?
John Kerry calls our troops, stupid. Pretty telling, don't you think?
THIS MAN IS THE BEST THE DEMOCRATS HAD TO OFFER AMERICA?
YOU DAMN WELL BET I'M CONCERNED ABOUT THE BEST THE DEMOCRATS HAVE TO OFFER THIS COUNTRY
The swiftboat vets have nothing to apologize for. Hanoi Kerry slandered the men in Vietnam and was a hero for the communists.

I DON'T THINK THEY SUPPORT THE WAR ON TERROR:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::What part of the War on Terrorism do they support?
By Ann Coulter
This year's Democratic plan for the future is another inane sound bite designed to trick
American voters into trusting them with national security.
To wit, they're claiming there is no connection between the war on terror and the war in
Iraq, and while they're all for the war against terror -- absolutely in favor of that war --
they are adamantly opposed to the Iraq war. You know, the war where the U.S. military is
killing thousands upon thousands of terrorists (described in the media as "Iraqi civilians
," even if they are from Jordan, like the now-dead leader of al-Qaida in Iraq, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi).
As Howard Dean put it this week, "The occupation in Iraq is costing American lives and hampering
our ability to fight the real global war on terror."
This would be like complaining that Roosevelt's war in Germany was hampering our ability to fight
the real global war on fascism. Or anti-discrimination laws were hampering our ability to fight the
real war on racism. Or dusting is hampering our ability to fight the real war on dust.
Maybe Dean is referring to a different globe, like Mars or Saturn, or one of those new planets
they haven't named yet.
Assuming against all logic and reason that the Democrats have some serious objection to the war in
Iraq, perhaps they could tell us which part of the war on terrorism they do support. That would be
easier than rattling off the long list of counterterrorism measures they vehemently oppose.
They oppose the National Security Agency listening to people who are calling specific phone numbers
found on al-Qaida cell phones and computers. Spying on al-Qaida terrorists is hampering our ability
to fight the global war on terror!
Enraged that the Bush administration deferred to the safety of the American people rather than the
obstructionist Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act court, one Clinton-appointed judge, James Robertson,
resigned from the FISA court in protest over the NSA spying program.
Democratic Sen. Russell Feingold called for a formal Senate censure of President Bush when he found out
the president was rude enough to be listening in on al-Qaida phone calls. (Wait until Feingold finds out the
White House has been visiting Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's "MySpace" page!)
Last week a federal judge appointed by Jimmy Carter ruled the NSA program to surveil phone calls to
al-Qaida members in other counties unconstitutional.
Democrats oppose the detainment of Taliban and al-Qaida soldiers at our military base in Guantanamo,
Cuba. Democrats such as Rep. Jane Harman, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee,
have called for Guantanamo to be shut down.
The Guantanamo detainees are not innocent insurance salesmen imprisoned in some horrible mix-up like
something out of a Perry Mason movie. The detainees were captured on the battlefield in Afghanistan.
You remember -- the war liberals pretended to support right up until approximately one nanosecond after
John Kerry conceded the 2004 election to President Bush.
But apparently, imprisoning al-Qaida warriors we catch on the battlefield is hampering our ability to fight the
global war on terror.
Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin has compared Guantanamo to Nazi concentration camps and Soviet gulags,
based on a report that some detainees were held in temperatures so cold that they shivered and others
were forced to listen to loud rap music -- more or less approximating the conditions in the green room at
"The Tyra Banks Show." Also, one of the detainees was given a badminton racket that was warped.
New York Times columnist Bob Herbert complained this week that detainees in Guantanamo have
"no hope of being allowed to prove their innocence." (I guess that's excluding the hundreds who have been
given administrative hearings or released already.)
Of course all the usual "human rights" groups are carping about how brutally our servicemen in Guantanamo
are treating the little darlings who are throwing feces at them.
Democrats oppose the Patriot Act, the most important piece of legislation passed since 9/11, designed to make
the United States less of a theme park for would-be terrorists.
The vast majority of Senate Democrats (43-2) voted against renewing the Patriot Act last December,
whereupon their minority leader, Sen. Harry Reid, boasted: "We killed the Patriot Act" --
a rather unusual sentiment for a party so testy about killing terrorists.
In 2004, Sen. John Kerry -- the man they wanted to be president -- called the Patriot Act
"an assault on our basic rights." At least all "basic rights" other than the one about not dying a horrible death
at the hand of Islamic fascists. Yes, it was as if Congress had deliberately flown two commercial airliners into
the twin towers of our Constitution.
They oppose profiling Muslims at airports.
They oppose every bust of a terrorist cell, sneering that the cells in Lackawanna, New York City, Miami,
Chicago and London weren't a real threat like, say, a nondenominational prayer before a high school football game.
Now that's a threat.

You asked virtually the same question already. I'll repeat the answer I already gave:
Did the swift boaters apologize to Kerry for questioning his patriotism?
Kerry was saying that someone with an education has more choices than someone without one. If a kid can't go to college for whatever reason one of the few choices left to him in the army. If things continue they way they have been there is a good chance that kid will end up in Iraq. Should Kerry apologize for telling the truth? Welcome to the real world.

The Democrats aren't willing to lose a war if they'll be blamed for it. If they can lose it and blame it on Republicans, that's no problem. Look at their actions. They pounded GW Bush non stop to get out of Iraq, hoping he would pull the plug so they could blame it on him, then when they got control of the White House they wouldn't do it. They added more troops in Afghan, and now we're in Libya too.

I've never supported anyone 100%. I think most democrats support out troops and want the best for them. But you probably already knew that.

I don't remember saying I support Kerry 100%.
In fact I dislike the guy.
But if you wanna generalize that's fine. I love our military.

Sounded to me llike he was insulting Bush's intelligence. I guess its another case of conservatives hearing what they want to hear.
