    The political leadership is the problem, not the American soldier, sailor, airman, or marine.

    And this is why it is so infuriating to have your patriotism, etc., questioned when challenging the incompetence of said "leadership."

    •  Opportunity to reclaim servicemen (1+ / 0-)

      The Democratic Party has an unparalleled opportunity to become the Party of servicemen, so long dominated by the GOP.  This country's Republican leadership has destroyed the pride and honor in our military, and viley betrayed their trust and their duty.  And then, upon doing so, further betray them by unabashedly decimating their benefits.  The Republican Party doesn't respect you - after all you are of the people, and not of the Rulers.  As a party we must speak for the soldier as a human being; a mother or father, a son or daughter, a brother or sister, a neighbor, a friend.  Or no one will.

      Honesty had been the single trait most closely associated with Bush, but in the current survey "incompetent" is the descriptor used most frequently.
