Reader Jeremey Winer emailed me this lovely tidbit from a Wesley Clark interview:
“We’ve got a president who will go halfway around the world for a photo opportunity but won’t go halfway across town for a funeral for an American serviceman.
“I’ve been to those funerals. I’ve comforted families. … I don’t think you can make good policy at the top if you don’t understand the impact at the bottom of your organization.”
Bush has on only two or three occasions met with the families of fallen servicemen and women, most recently at Fort Carson, Colorado, and he has not attended funerals or greeted caskets returning from Iraq.
WHAT… A… JERK… And as a military man, he has no excuse, he should know better. For chrissakes, how many times are we going to have to debunk this damn meme?
Is there some sort of competition between the Democratic candidates to see who can make the most outrageous statement? Or is that was a Democratic primary is anymore?
