re: #302 Coracle

Your strawman congressional rep. Does he have a name? Can I find records of this rep(s) voting against “every upgrade to the military’s equipment and weaponry, every real increase in defense spending, etc…” because s/he is simply opposed to the military? And then “suddenly” condemn Bush, and then go right back to their antimilitary ways?

Not to mention that it would be perfectly consistent to have, in the past, wanted lower defence spending, and then when we are in a war, want the troops to have the best body armour and other resources available.

There’s no reason to think that position is about ‘bashing Bush’, as opposed to reflecting a genuine concern for the troops in the theatre of war. None.
