Kerry, veterans, and "supporting the troops" 

Kerry is focusing on the military; good:

John Hurley, who heads Kerry's national outreach to veterans, announced the campaign had recruited coordinators for that effort in every state. He also said 100,000 veterans had signed up on Kerry's website to support the campaign.

Kerry said he was receiving support not only from veterans, but also from large numbers of current members of the military.

"You would be amazed at the number of active-duty personnel who are coming up at events around the country … and telling me how important it is for us to stand up and fight for those who are not able to speak out for themselves right now, for obvious reasons," [Kerry] said.

There's no reason I can see for Democrats to concede inch to Republicans on either national security in general or supporting the troops.

If we can get people to ask this question—"How stupid does Bush think we are?"—it's all over for Bush.

So, Bush says Republicans support the troops?

  1. How stupid does Bush think we are, when he made the case for war on WMDs, and then there weren't any?

  2. How stupid does Bush think we are, when he made the case that Iraq was part of the "war on terror," and Saddam and AQ had no connection at all?

  3. How stupid does Bush think we are, when he says "Mission Accomplished" and then the lack of postwar planning causes thousands of deaths?

  4. How stupid does Bush think we are, when he goes to eat turkey with the same troops he's killing because he didn't get them body armor or armored HumVees?

I could make a longer list, but you get the idea.
