I read this interview
with a returned medical corpsman many months back, but the "loyalty oath" issue makes it even more relevant today. We need to raise this issue, because it points out a key character flaw with Bush -- he's scared of half of America.
Remember Bush's Thanksgiving photo-op in Iraq, with soldiers cheering him as he presented turkee? Guess what, that crowd was screened too. Democrat soldiers don't count for much in Bush's military:
What did you think about President Bush's Thanksgiving visit to Iraq?
I was there when President Bush came to the [Baghdad] airport. The day before, you had to fill out a questionnaire and answer questions, that would determine whether they would allow you in the room with the President.
What was on the questionnaire?
"Do you support the president?"
Members of the military were asked whether they support the president politically?
Yes. And if the answer was not a gung-ho, A-1, 100 percent yes, then you were not allowed into the cafeteria. You were not allowed to eat the Thanksgiving meal that day. You had an MRE.
What's an MRE?
Meals ready to eat. We also call them "meals refused by Ethiopians."
This is despicable behavior by the Commander-in-Chief. Clearly he wasn't there to support the troops, just to grab a a photo-op with a loyal crowd. I want a President who will visit all the troops, not just those who sign loyalty oaths. Clinton never demanded this crap.
Why is President Bush afraid of speaking to all Americans?
