How Does the GOP Really Feel About Veterans?

Actions speak louder than words and, with the president's umpteenth speech before a military audience today, it seems like a good time to point out again the true contempt that the GOP has for Veterans.

When the Republicans were faced with having to run against a decorated Veteran in the last presidential election, they stooped as low as to don Purple Heart bandages on the floor of their national convention, in an effort to minimize John Kerry's service.

I would submit to all of my fellow Veterans that they diminished us all and, despite their hollow, patriotic words, showed their true stripes.

Have a look – and don't forget.
