Girly-Men or Manly Men?

We all know that the Democrats are all girly-men and weak on defense, right? Their cravenly “peace at any cost” mentality leaves our country vulnerable to attack at any moment. This is, of course, fact!

We also know those brave hearty men of the Republican Party will protect us and lead us valiantly to victory over our evil foes! We MUST trust their judgment in martial matters without question! Our sons and daughters serving in the military are most assuredly in trustworthy hands!

But, please don’t take my word for it. Let’s look at the military records of members of both parties distinguishing the men from the boys:

The cravenly cowards of the Democratic Party

I see you missed the first George Bush who flew combat missions in WWII and was shot down once. Did you go through google and find the people who supported your hypothesis?

Someone pointed out to me that Chris Matthews served in the Peace Corps. Not military duty, but highly commendable public service.

At 10:18 AM, Blogger DaveG said...

There's also a lot to be said for HOW one served.

Al Gore: HQ press weenie
John Kerry: self-aggrandizing, scheming cry-baby
Bob Dole: permanent, significant injuries from WWII - funny how you missed that one

I'll trust you on the validity but a fine list as it is. I've decided to share it with a forum, giving you full credit of course.

I am not an American so I hope you can accept as a non-partisan comment.

In 1992 the Democrats offered as their presidential candidate a draft-dodger who had dabbled with illegal drugs, in opposition to a Republican president who was a war-hero - and won.
In 2004 the Democrats wanted people to vote for a war hero rather than a draft-dodger who had dabbled with illegal drugs.
The hypocrites are the Democrats. They are the ones who want to have it both ways.

Coins are my passion. I love to look at them and hold. I think about the history of the coin in hand. Who used it at one time? Where has it been? Did this Morgan dollar actually participate in a poker game in the old west? Did someone get shot for cheating? Its fascinating when you consider this type question. So much history in a litle piece of metal.
