There's no 'we' in 'draft dodger'
Dick Cheney went to Iraq today (I assume because he ran out of deferments).
Perhaps 'we' should give him props for fielding tough questions from the troops. But this is just a stop-over for the Vice President. On Christmas Dick Cheney will be able to kick back with his family and listen to Jessica Simpson 'music.'
That's probably why this happened:
When he delivered the applause line, "We're in this fight to win. These colors don't run," the only sound was a lone whistle.
That's a despicable thing to say to our fighting men.
No one's asking any of them to 'run.'
If we do pull out of Iraq it will be the decision of whatever Administration is in power, not the troops.
Dick Cheney should save the 'we' for when he's talking to neo-con chicken hawks. He hasn't earned the right to 'rally' the troops. Hell, at least Bush served in TANG. Cheney ran in 1965 when he began racking up deferments: five in total.
Must've been an aide that whistled.
