    because as a cross section of the public, you can bet your boots that they voted in the majority for BUSH.

    And they were allll gung ho for the war, they're all part of the WWII and Viet Nam war generation.

    Rubbing their nose in it now makes no sense, but again...they should all take a long hard look in the mirror.

    They are just as responsible for the coming SS debacle (meaning that it WILL be changed in some manner now) as any of us.

      I think they were pretty much AGAINST the war, if not real vocal about it. Most of the retirees I know (both military and regular) saw no reason for this Iraq debacle, immediately compared it to Vietnam, and while they support the TROOPS, they don't necessarily agree with Bush.

      And I can't think of any Vietnam vet that I know of that supported it. My friend worked at a vet center, she didn't know any either.

      Nor did my husband, most of his friends (and they're pretty conservative people), my son (navy vet), or most of my coworkers.

      I think all the polls are crap, but that's beside the point.
