Democrats Never Learn
by Cenk Uygur of the Young Turks
A retired fighter pilot once called our show and said what the Democrats need to learn is the old Top Gun motto: Turn into the fight!
John Kerry’s joke about the president — which was twisted for propaganda purposes by the Republicans — was an … opportunity! It was an opportunity for Democrats to bring up every error that Bush and his Republican enablers in Congress have made — and then demand an apology to the troops for those actions.
Anytime a reporter asked about Kerry’s remarks, every Democrat should have started the sentence with the words, “Let me tell you who has to apologize to the troops, these Republicans in the administration and Congress for what they have done…”
Then you can go on to talk about sending the troops into war without a plan, or proper equipment or competent Secretary of Defense or any justification whatsoever. Or their votes against veterans when they return from the war. The Republican Congress turned down a measly twenty million dollars to help veterans recover from traumatic brain injuries. That’s less than what the Iraq War costs in two hours! These guys nearly had their heads blown off by IEDs and the Republicans turned down their treatment. How’s that for an insult to the troops?
