Support Our Troops

From Holden:

Who really cares about our troops?

George Bush and legions of republicans who ponied-up a buck-fiddy for a yellow ribbon magnet to slap next to the silver fish on the trunk of their cars?

“The concerns expressed are being addressed and that is — we expect our troops to have the best possible equipment,” Bush said at the White House.

“If I were a soldier overseas wanting to defend my country I’d want to ask the secretary of defense the same question. And that is, ‘Are we getting the best we can get us?’ And they deserve the best.”

“And I have told many families I’ve met with, we’re doing everything we possibly can to protect your loved ones in a mission which is vital and important. And that mission is to spread freedom and peace,” Bush said.

Or Senator Chris Dodd and Democrats who are outraged that nearly two years after Chimpy launched his illegal war our troops still lack adequate equipment?

“That’s not the kind of 21st Century U.S. army that I think most people believe we have.” [audio, :38]
