Military Upset With Socialist Liberal Reps
Kennedy & Akaka
Per the Washington Times:
Sen. Richard J. Durbin of Illinois, the Senate's No. 2 Democrat, last month invoked widespread military outrage when he compared Guantanamo to the prison labor systems used by communist tyrant Josef Stalin, Cambodia's Pol Pot and Adolf Hitler."They got stiff reactions from those home-state soldiers," one official told us. "The troops down there expressed their disdain for that kind of commentary, especially comparisons to the gulag."
I think that the Durbin atrocity will have a deep and damaging impact on a lot of DNC candidates in 2006. Black Five has a post on the military reaction to this issue:
And what they are going to find, to the Democrats' dismay, is that there will be an awful lot of war heroes coming home...and they just might run for office. Democrat or Republican. Independent or Libertarian. Keep your eye on this MilBlogger. He's going to go after Maxine Waters' seat in Congress when he gets home.
What a nightmare for a socialist democrat like Maxine Waters to be going up against a military person given her actions and the current climate. I think more recently active military people serving in our government, from all parties, would be a very positive thing.......................
