Vets vs. Chicken Hawks
Democrats have recruited more than thirty veterans of the two Iraq and Persian Gulf wars to run in 2006 according to a count by The Denver Post. The group is calling themselves Veterans for a Secure Ameri ca, and plan to meet in Washington to respond to Bush’s State of the Union Address.
In contrast, Republicans have so far recruited two veterans (one from the Iraq war) to run in 2006. Republicans still plan to run on their bogus claims that they can do a job of keeping America safe. Hopefully voters, who have fallen for this in the past, will think twice after seeing the results of the Republicans’ disasterous foreign policy moves as well as the number of veterans running as Democrats. Republicans are likely to try their old dirty tricks, but can they get away with swift-boating over thirty veterans?
