Stars & Stripes letter: Time to vote for Democrats
There have been a few good letters in Stripes lately, complaining about the Bush administration. This one is in today's paper. I'll compile a list of most recents later.


Time to vote for Democrats

During President Bushs Oct. 25 press conference, he was asked if Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki had been invited to a news conference held the previous day with Gen. George Casey and U.S. Ambassador to Iraq Zalmay Kahlilzad, which would have indicated cooperation between the two governments. I have no idea, answered Bush.

Bushs analysis of a deteriorating Iraq was no more enlightening: Its hard work, its not only tough, its really tough. Were constantly adjusting our tactics to meet the threat, if the generals tell me they need more troops, Ill send them, and we mourn every loss of life.

Funny, how a president who has taken more vacations than any other in history, during a war he started for no good reason, fixates on hard work. While Bush jogs, rides bikes and golfs, he sends brigades on multiple tours of duty.

With 91 U.S. military killed so far this month, dyed-in-the-wool Republicans Gen. John Batiste and retired Gen. Paul Eaton agree on the need to change tactics. They advise Americans to vote a straight Democratic ticket in November.

2. Support the Troops, Vote Democratic!
That should be our slogan.

3. It's up to 100 US dead this month now.
But things are going "swimmingly" according to the RW who has never served a lick of military duty. So how the hell would they know?
