Troops Tired Of Bad Mouthing By The Democrats

When military members at the detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba were accused of abusing prisoners the news was abuzz with the stories. Our men and women were taken to task because a few terrorists complained about their living conditions. You never heard complaints from the service members who were routinely abused. The terrorists throw the “cocktail” (feces, semen, urine) at them on a regular basis. The terrorists are dangerous and every precaution needs to be taken to ensure they do not kill someone yet the left and the MSM focus on the alleged abuse by soldiers.

Sens. Edward M. Kennedy, Massachusetts Democrat, and Daniel K. Akaka, Hawaii Democrat recently paid a visit to Club Gitmo (yes I listen to Rush) and found conditions to be satisfactory as did the delegation of democrats and the media that recently visited. Kennedy has been a vocal critic of Gitmo and wants it shut down. The thing that Kennedy and Akaka were probably not prepared for was the “stiff reactions” from the soldiers to remarks made by the donks. They were particularly upset with the gulag remark but expressed their dissatisfaction with the way the donks have been bad mouthing them. The nice thing is they let the old boozer know exactly how they felt.

Pentagon officials said soldiers criticized the harsh comments made recently by Senate Democrats.
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.”
A spokesman for Mr. Kennedy had no comment. A spokeswoman for Mr. Akaka confirmed that the senator met with soldiers from Hawaii but did not recall receiving any complaints during the meeting.
Both senators made no mention of the incident in press statements after the visit. Mr. Kennedy, in his statement, said that he is “impressed with the courtesies and professionalism of the men and women in our armed forces.”

Kennedy’s spokesman had no comment? Kennedy has comments on everything. He sure as hell has comments about everything Bush does and every time a soldier passes gas near a terrorist he is their to talk about abuse. But when he gets what Adam would call blowback, he has no comment. I am glad to see that our men and women in uniform are telling ole’ Teddy just what they think. I imagine he would just as soon have them be quiet but he was in favor of John Kerry speaking out so long ago so he can’t very well take a different position. Oh wait, he is a democrat he can take all sides of any issue. I’m sure he had no comment because he knows that if they printed what he wanted to say then he would be a very unpopular man. No matter what people feel about the war, most support the brave men and women who are waging it.

I wonder why this blowback was not all over the news? If Ted went down there and the troops treated him like it was the second coming you would have seen it all over the place. He gets roughed up a bit and there is little mention of it. Of course the media could not say anything. These events do not square with the version of the truth they want to put forth. No, there is no media bias.

    No surprise here. If our fine men in women in arms can stand up to terrorists and feces, standing up to a pantywaist like Ted Kennedy should be no problem.

    And, no surprise the MSM doesn’t report this blowback. They are on their own liberal jihad — where, sadly, the truth has sadly become secondary to their mission to slime the president.
