Tax Cuts Before Body Armor

Bush gave a speech Friday in Chicago. He's so proud of those tax cuts for the rich. He's also proud of Denny Hastert...

I'm proud to be traveling with the Speaker, Denny Hastert. He's a good, solid American. (Applause.) And he's doing a heck of a job as the Speaker of the House of Representatives.

This means, of course, that there is trouble coming down the pike for Denny boy since only slugs get the "heck of a job" complement. Then there was this oldie but goodie...

Just as this economy is getting going, there are some in Washington who want to take the money out of your pocket. They think they can spend it better than you can.

Yah, how are our Soldiers and Marines supposed to get good body armor if their parents and friends don't have the money to buy it for them. We've got to get more money in their pockets and out of the government for the troops. Jeeeeeesus people don't you get it?

It's OK for people in red states to hate some G.W.Bush.

I'm in the same situation.

People always come back with the same argument. "Well... atleast the Iraqies are liberated". Yet we didn't do anything for west Africa while they were doing their ethnic cleansing.

Thus, George Bush really dosen't care about black people. Kanye had a valid point.

*In theory*, this should kill once and for all the pernicious myth that Bush & the Republicans are the ones who support our troops, and we liberals are the ones who wish them ill.

In practice... not so much. I'm glad Howard brought it up with Blitzer, tho.

The look on Blitzer's face when Dean challenged his "Dem's are part of Abramoff's shit too" meme was classic. It's almost like no one but Dean has balls anymore.

Decent equipment and the our military is a major problem, boots that fuck your feet up and fall to peices in a matter of weeks. Not enough body armour to go round. I am shocked that you guys have similar problems

Do you think the soldiers would have better body armour if one of Bush's relatives was a Marine?

The soldiers would have better body armor if a major Republican donor manufactured it. Well, more major than a shitty body armor manufacturer, of course.
