With the Alito hearings clogging the airways and numbing our minds, President Bush's speech before the VFW in D.C. didn't get the full attention it deserves, except that part of it criticizing the "Murthites." Here is a link to the speech, and an excerpt:
"Support for the mission in Iraq should not be a partisan matter. VFW members come from all over the country, and both sides of the political aisle —— yet your position on the war is clear. In a recent resolution, the VFW declared, "it is critical that the United States succeed in Iraq, which will result in stability and security in the region." I appreciate your support for the mission in Iraq, and so do our troops in the fight. Your lives of service, from the first time you put on the uniform to this day, are a credit to our country and an inspiration to our military. A new generation of soldiers, and sailors, airmen, Marines and Coast Guardsmen is now carrying out an urgent and noble mission —— and they're doing so with the same determination and courage as you who came before them."
