Skip to comments.20 Congressmen Ask Kerry to Apologize for Guard Insult
Posted on 09/16/2004 3:45:25 PM PDT by RWR8189
Washington Today, Congressman Joe Wilson (R-S.C.) and fellow Congressmen sent a letter to Senator Kerry demanding he immediately apologize for comments attacking the honorable service of those in the National Guard. All of the Congressmen who signed the letter are veterans or current members of the National Guard or Reserves.
I am honored to be joined by so many proud Members of Congress in demanding that Senator Kerry stop slandering the men and women who have served in the National Guard and Reserves. When Senator Kerry attacks President Bushs National Guard record as a refusal to serve in the U.S. Military, he is degrading the commitment of all the proud men and women who have served and are serving today. We demand that Senator Kerry cease his attacks and apologize for his comments.
Unfortunately, this is not the first time Democrats have demeaned the service of men and women in the Guard. Earlier this year, Democratic National Chairman Terry McAuliffe said that President Bush had never served in our military. This was an insult to all those in the Guard and Reserve who are part of the American Military. Its time for the Democrats to apologize and stop insulting the National Guard and Reserves.
Joining Congressman Wilson in signing the letter sent to Senator Kerrys Presidential Campaign were Bill Young (R-Fl.), Dave Weldon (R-Fl.), John Shimkus (R-Il.), Butch Otter (R-Id.), Howard Coble (R-N.C.), John Shadegg (R-), Harold Rogers (R-Ky.), Walter Jones (R-), Steve Buyer (R-In.), Virgil Goode (R-Va.), Tom Osbourne (R-Ne.), Todd Akin (R-Mo.), Henry Brown (R-S.C.), Mike Bilirakis (R-Fl.), Tom Reynolds (R-N.Y.), Spencer Bachus (R-Al.), Mark Kirk (R-Il.), Peter King (R-N.Y.), and Mac Collins (R-Ga.).
HOT DANG! This is GOOD!
I guess there are no democratic ex-guard members who are proud of their service.
They should have mentioned the Dem's ridicule of Dan Quale's service in the Indiana Nat'l Gaurd.
Wonderful. Brit played clips of Kerry's speech today and those folks did not look pleased.
Glad to see this. I have mentioned around here that I am tired of Kerry impuning these honorable people.
Mr. Kerry how many pieces of legislation have you introduced in your 20+ years in the senate?
His response(and I believe it) here
What's there to be upset about? This is a typical socialist opening his mouth. What do you expect to come out? Come November, everything he has been saying will haunt him for the rest of his life. Soros may even invite him into his organization. Oh, he's already in it.
Oh, this is silly.
WoW! This is so, so DemonRAT of them! The Republican's are taking a play right out of the DemonRAT manual. I'm sooooo shocked. Can this be a sign that they are finally getting a little backbone?
Wait a minute, what did Kerry actually say about guardsmen and reservists? Wasn't it his minions like Terry MaCauliff?
not inclined to use bad words, but: IT"S ABOUT FREEKIN' TIME!!!!!!
Sorry John, we remember and will never forget your treason!
Does anybody have a direct quote of what Kerry said?
Notice--not a 'Rat in the pack. Does that mean that there are no Guardsmen or Reservists on the other side of the isles, or does that mean that those who exist don't mind Jean Fraude bashing their service and that of their comrades in arms?
Now, if only the Swift Boaters would air a commercial showing Kerry (in his own words) slamming the National Guard my life would be complete!
All Republicans, no rats.....shameful.
