Bush -- still dishonoring our veterans

Speaking during the Democratic Party's weekly radio address, retired Marine Gen. Joseph P. Hoar, the former U.S. military commander in the Middle East, said the Bush administration has consistently refused to provide enough money for veterans' health care and has also repeatedly tried to increase the cost of prescription drugs and health care services for veterans nationwide. Hoar continued:
"As a veteran and a former commander of U.S. forces in the Middle East, I have seen first hand the kind of sacrifices they are making for us. It's a debt we will never be able to repay... But we have a special duty to make sure our veterans receive the benefits they have earned and deserve when they return home."
Have you noticed how the Bush administration constantly tries to claim the mantle of patriotism, yet they repeatedly dishonor our nation's veterans. Of course, the Bush White House is filled with chickenhawks, so their actions should hardly come as a surprise to anyone.

One other thing -- why is it that when combat veterans enter politics, they are invariably Democrats?
