but we sure have a few stuck in the Senate...
"John Kerry, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the 'blame America first' crowd, they want to blame Iraq on the president, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and everyone else," said House Majority Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio, referring to his Democratic colleagues in the House and Senate. "Why don't we blame it on the terrorists, the people who killed 3,000 people here in New York? Let's not blame it on everybody else.
"Let's blame the terrorists for the problems that we have. ... They want to blame America for the terrorists coming here and attacking our country. We have no choice but to take on these terrorists to defeat them," Boehner said.
"I spent three weeks in the Florida recount by Hillary Clinton's good friend Al Gore who wanted to be president. How? By suppressing the vote of the overseas military serving this country," said Rep. Steve Buyer, R-Ind. "So the Democrat elite have a record here of not supporting our military, and they sure did not like that exposed five days before an election."
Vice President Dick Cheney also was not about to let Kerry's remark and subsequent Web-only apology for a "bad joke" go quietly into the night.
"You remember John Kerry — the senator who voted for the $87 billion before he voted against it, the guy that was always lecturing us about 'nuance.' He's the one, you'll recall, who last year said that American soldiers were terrorizing children in Iraq," Cheney said at a campaign event in Montana Wednesday night.
"Of course, Senator Kerry said he was just making a joke, and he botched it up. I guess we didn't get the nuance. Actually, he was for the joke before he was against it," Cheney said.
The Democrats are all about degrading our country's leadership, military and citizens. I'm tired of the constant trash talking from them! Why can't this country be unified? It's sad to say, but it was nice to see the unity immediately following 9-11... it's a shame how fast it faded. Never Forget 9-11
John Kerry doesn't know his ass from a hole in the ground! I thank God every day that this moron wasn't elected in '04! What kind of joke was that to tell about our military?
Well, our troops aren't laughing, our Republican Congressmen and Senators aren't laughing, I'm not laughing, and you shouldn't be laughing either!
Then, to illustrate just how much this guy flip-flops... after he refused to apologize to anyone for his comments, he finally released an apology to our troops and their families. Well, I should hope so - he basically said that they're uneducated idiots who joined the military as a last resort. That's one helluva joke to tell, John!
This should show you, if you didn't know already, just what sort of ideals these Democrats hold: Blame America First
I commend the statement released by the White House:
Senator Kerry's apology to the troops for his insulting comment came late but was the right thing to do. Our military is the best and the brightest — the most courageous and professional of any military in the world. President Bush is honored to be their commander-in-chief.
