Did George W. Bush Do To Protest The Vietnam War?
by Lois Erwin
Now, here's a relevant question for you: What did George
W. Bush do to protest the Vietnam war? The answer to that
is: NOTHING. He wasn't INTERESTED enough to let himself be
drafted and participate in the fighting, but he also was not
interested enough to see how wrong the war was, and protest
Bush just used Daddy's political connections to get himself
a cushy job in the Texas Air National Guard where - in spite
of his admitted alcohol abuse during those years - got to
fly in the skies over Texas in expensive planes. And drink
beer with his pals between times. And, then, went AWOL for
a year or two.
Now, there's a "real hero" for the comic books.
As John McCain said: While McCain was being tortured and
was rotting away in the "Hanoi Hilton" prison in Vietnam,
he "felt so much better knowing George W. Bush was guarding
the skies over Texas" – from Vietnamese invasion, apparently!
The truth is that George W. Bush was a coward who did not
have the courage of ANY convictions. He just looked for an
easy way out.
He could have cared less about Vietnamese civilians being
killed in their own country by our soldiers.
All he cared about was where his next beer was coming from.
AND protecting his own hide.
He was a wimp.
All talk and NO guts.
Why aren't reporters dumping on that loser - George W. Bush?
