They have not lead. We will.
Our military is low on parts, pay and morale. If called on by the commander-in-chief today, two entire divisions of the Army would have to report, "Not ready for duty, sir."
And by the way, when Bush said this in 2000:
To point out that our military has been overextended, taken for granted and neglected, that’s no criticism of the military. That is criticism of a president and vice president and their record of neglect.
not one conservative commentator accused him of "blaming America first," "hating the troops," or "helping the terrorists." Yet now, whenever some liberal makes a similar criticism of Bush and his Rubber-Stamp Congress, these are the exact labels applied by conservative pundits from Pillz-E on down.
