    If your going to bash Chuck, and by all means he is truly deserving, try swinging the attention to his questions during the Waco hearings. They were truly some of the most ignorant self serving statements I had ever heard.

    The final time I regarded George Bush, and not Chuck Schumer, develop into the Commander in chief. it kind of feels to me that the commander ought to extremely be traveling the wounded troops. If for no different reason than to thank them for his or her sacrifice. Do you think of i visit miss the fact that Bush did no longer difficulty to envision on the wounded because of the fact Schumer did no longer the two? you're needless to say extra in touch approximately forwarding your partisan politics than you're with the circumstances at Walter Reed. That makes you basically as undesirable as any of the worst politicians who will use this occasion to their political benefit. yet then i've got considered you positioned up earlier. And this form of hypocricy isn't something new for you.

    Perhaps for the same reason as Dick Cheney avoided the draft and never visited Walter Reed.

    Chuck Schumer did not dodge like the others such as

    Cheney who claimed he had better things to do than serve his country and also used his wife's skirt and her pregnancy as yet another excuse. Bush was MIA, and the rest of the cabal with the exception only of Rummy all dodged

    Unlike them, Schumer did not serve in the military during the Vietnam War despite his professed desire for public service. This occurred only because his draft lottery number was never reached and HE did not get any deferrments.

      Schumer could have voluntered to serve in the military as George W Bush did but it appears Schumer was way to cowardly to serve his country in the United States Military.

    Why do you support draft Dodgers like Bush and Cheney? Has Bush been to Walter Reed to see the results of his decisions?

    There are no cameras or microphones at Walter Reed. Never get between Chuck and a microphone, you could get run over.

    He didn't visit Walter Reed and Bush didn't make sure it was properly funded.

    You're not a veteran and you shouldn't speak of things you obviously know nothing about.

    Chuck Schumer was to cowardly to serve in the United States Military and of course not caring for the young men and women who serve in the military he just refused to visit them when they are in Walter Reed. Just doesn't care.
