The Kerry Pile-On Piles Ever Higher

President Bush, speaking in Georgia this afternoon, said:

I cannot tell you how proud I am to be the Commander-in-Chief of such incredibly brave men and women who have volunteered to wear the uniform of the United States. And even in the midst of a heated campaign season, there are still some things we should all be able to agree on €“ and one of the most important is that every one of our troops deserves our gratitude €“ and respect. Yesterday Democrat Senator John Kerry was speaking to a group of young people in California, and gave them this advice, quote: €œYou know education, if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don ‘t you get stuck in Iraq. €

The Senator ‘s suggestion that the men and women of our military are somehow uneducated is insulting and shameful. Our troops did not enlist because they did not study hard in school or do their homework. The men and women who serve in our all-volunteer Armed Forces are plenty smart and are serving because they are patriots €“ and Senator Kerry owes them an apology.

Whatever party you belong to, whatever you think about the war in Iraq, we should all agree that our troops deserve our unwavering support. And when it comes to supporting our men and women in uniform, I don ‘t have any doubt where Mac Collins is going to land. He is a strong supporter of the military. And he knows what I know: Any time you have American troops in harm ‘s way, they have the right to expect the full support of the American government.
