Kerry Endorses Webb
John Kerry has posted in support of Jim Webb at the Huffington Post:
I’m for Jim Webb. He’s a Marine, and I say “is’ because when you’re a Marine you’re a Marine for life. And I say that as a Navy man.
The people calling the shots in Washington have a habit of treating veterans and members of the military as terrific backdrops for their speeches, but they don’t listen to them about what they’re seeing on the ground as they serve (witness the body armor ordeal,) they ignore the lessons military men and women learned in uniform (just ask General Shinseki,) and, judging by Bush policies they certainly don’t pay any attention to their needs when they come home (they tolerate billion dollar shortfalls in veterans funding.)Ke
