John Kerry decided to fly to Iraq the other day to get a feel for what the troops there were thinking. If this photo is any indication, he now has that feel.
From Scott Hennen at HotTalk:
A picture tells a 1000 words.....All this will go unnoticed by the mainstream press. The troops stationed in Iraq are, to them, nothing more than knuckle-dragging high school dropouts who failed in real life and are therefore not worthy of attention.
A friend of mine serving in Iraq sent me this photo and note. I received it before Christmas, but was out of the office. Priceless story it tells....
"This is a true story.....Check out this photo from our mess hall at the US Embassy yesterday morning. Sen. Kerry found himself all alone while he was over here. He cancelled his press conference because no one came, he worked out alone in the gym w/o any soldiers even going up to say hi or ask for an autograph (I was one of those who was in the gym at the same time), and he found himself eating breakfast with only a couple of folks who are obviously not troops.
What is amazing is Bill O'Reilly came to visit with us and the troops at the CSH the same day and the line for autographs extended through the palace and people waited for two hours to shake his hand. You decide who is more respected and loved by us servicemen and women!"
Again I say..."GOD BLESS OUR TROOPS!!" (link)
But God bless 'em indeed!
