Democrats: Always Supporting the Troops...
Posted by: Dale Franks on Sunday, October 08, 2006

The Democratic Party's web site makes a big show of supporting our troops, which is nice. It'd be even nicer if the picture of the soldier they're using actually was one of our troops. I'm sure the individual is a darned fine soldier, and he's probably professional as hell.

One of 'our' brave Canadian boys in uniform.

His professionalism, I'm sure, reflects great credit upon himself, and upon Her Majesty's Canadian Forces.

Note to the DNC: Usually, in the United States, when we refer to "our" troops, we're generally talking about, you know, Americans. Oh, and by the way, that's a pretty lame, suck Photoshop job on the beret. Also, for future reference, you can tell our troops from those of other countries by looking for the "U.S." on the lapel of their service dress jackets. It's a new thing we started doing last century.

And these Bozos want to ’lead’ the nation during wartime? God spare us....

Pathetic. They photoshopped a proud Canadian soldier’s picture so they could pawn him off as a US soldier. This is an insult to both the Canadian and US militaries. It’s beyond simply stupid, it’s vulgar.

Note the poppy. This was a Remeberance day ceremony.

In Flanders Fields

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

John McCrae (1872-1918)

I’ve been told that more than a few veterans are, in fact, Democrats.
From this post, it’s obvious that none of them are associated or work for the DNC.

How hard is it to get a real pic of US troops?

The only pics of troops the Dems are ever interested in are flag-draped coffins.

Oh please! name me one Republican leader that designs and develops his party’s web page. No doubt the work of a Republican Dibold operative.

Well, cut them some slack. All of the troops are ether on the other side of the world, under age 22, out after "4", or maimed.

Or dead. In coffins. With flags draped on them. Unfortunately they are not very photogenic. According to Republicans and Fox News, they do not even exist!

I blame the Republicans for not having focused on growing the military so we can have more troops.

With cameras.

Republicans in Libertarian clothing are going DOWN!

Down down down....

I don’t see why someone would go through the trouble of doing this. Seems like an awfully vague way to announce an opinion on foreign policy.

As Little Green Footballs explains at
http://littlegreenfootballs.com/weblog/?entry=22868_Democratic_Party_Fauxtoshops_Veteran&only:

The DNC did not do the photoshopping. The original photographer did that before uploading the picture to Istockphoto.com. This was to remove copyrighted elements, as Istockphoto.com requires. The DNC apparently bought the already-altered photo there.

This does not let the DNC off the hook, since they still went on about supporting our troops, but could not tell who our troops are and are not.

Now now, be fair. They’re also interested in pics of our troops abusing prisoners.

They like them when they desert and when they frag their superiors too.

Moot point now, they’ve delinked the picture in question.
About to become history that no doubt ’never happened’.

Or, maybe our ’broken promises’ hurt Canada’s troops and the DNC thinks we ARE Canada?

Name me one that wouldn’t verify the way the page looked or delivered its message.

Or is the DNC so incompetent that it doesn’t bother to check the work of its subcontractors? Bodes well for the future, doesn’t it?

They really liked the troops storming into Baghdad, toppling Saddam.

Shhhhh! They don’t like to talk about that. Or the millions of people voting.

They don’t like them when they vote by absentee ballot.
