How Dems support our troops

Reading this post from Hugh Hewitt reminded me of a post I've been meaning to write.

Bill Clinton, in one of the few honest moments in his life, wrote that he loathed the military. Most liberal Democrats share his opinion, although many try to claim that they support the troops.

Note to Dems:

It isn't "supporting the troops" to claim that they have bungled badly their mission in Afghanistan.

It isn't "supporting the troops" when you claim they are incompetent in Iraq.

It isn't "supporting the troops" to claim that they are a bunch of losers who only joined the military because they couldn't get a job.

And it isn't "supporting the troops" to say that they are lying when they come home and speak of all the great progress being made in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Describing people as a group of lying incompetent losers does not constitue "support". Even in the looking glass world of the liberal left in America.

Well, remember to continue to support James Webb. He supports our troops and the troops know it, unlike George Allen who talks a good line but hates our troops.

Check out the new ad our troops made to support Webb:

1. Practically nobody is claiming that "the troops" bungled in Afghanistan and Iraq, they claim that the leadership, particularly the civilian leadership under Bush and Rumsfeld, did.

2. Who the hell is claiming that everyone who joins the military is a "loser?"

3. Again, who does this? I have no doubt that many troops see alot of progress going on in Iraq in their small piece of it. Saying that the situation as a whole is rapidly spinning down the shitter is a result of reading the news, as well as the reports of senior officials in the military itself.

4. This whole post was just a badly constructed stawman. No one calls the troops "lying, incompetent losers."
