The Dems are getting desperate. After several unsuccessful attempts to get traction from the bogus Air National Guard "AWOL" issue, they are taking another shot at it (again). These guys are taking the concept of never learning from your mistakes to a new level.
DNC bag-man Terry McAuliffe is criticizing President Bush for serving in the Air National Guard rather than going to Vietnam.
"We know that John Kerry was in Vietnam," said Democratic Party chief Terry McAuliffe in a conference call with reporters. "My question, Mr. President, is where were you, Sir?"
The implication, of course, is that President Bush failed to serve his country in the armed forces. The last time I checked, the Air National Guard is part of the military. In essence, McAuliffe's statement implies that members of the ANG aren't "real" military personnel. This urinates on the service of many thousands of men and women who have served in the ANG. To add insult to injury, I've seen no evidence that McAuliffe ever served in the military in any capacity. Furthermore, McAuliffe is the lap dog of a politician who really did dodge the draft. He gave his unwavering support to said politician in a political race against a decorated combat veteran.
I know you have to be a hypocrite to be a left winger these days, but McAuliffe takes it to the extreme. To paraphrase the Dixie Chicks: Just so you know, I'm ashamed that Terry McAuliffe is from New York.
