Now that his campaign has done the damage to Kerry, here’s why George W. Bush wants us to forget about what happened during the Vietnam War and talk about more current issues:
As I said before (8/24/04), first the bully hits you, then he yells so the teacher looks and you can’t hit him back. The difference is that while you did nothing wrong, the bully deserves to be hit. You are in pain, and the bully can gloat because he both injured you and made you look like a troublemaker at no cost to his reputation.
Kerry earned his purple hearts. The Bush family leveraged George W.’s honorable discharge, and they have spent thirty years lying about and covering up the record.
