somone sent this to me what does everyone think?

 

 

John Glenn (DEMOCRAT) said this.. It should make us all think.
 
There were 39 combat related killings in Iraq in January.
  In the fair city of Detroit there were 35 murders in the month of January That's just one American city, about as deadly as the entire war-torn country of Iraq .








 


When some claim that President Bush shouldn't have started this war, tell them the following:


 


 FDR (DEMOCRAT) led us into World War II. 
  Germany never attacked us; Japan did.  From 1941-1945, 450,000 lives were lost ...    an average of 112,500 per year. 

 


Truman (DEMOCRAT) finished that war and started one in Korea .  North Korea never attacked us. From 1950-1953, 55,000 lives were lost ... an average of 18,334 per year.   


 

 John F. Kennedy (DEMOCRAT) started the Vietnam conflict in 1962. 


Vietnam never attacked us.

 

 

 

Johnson (DEMOCRAT) turned Vietnam into a quagmire.
From 1965-1975, 58,000 lives were lost ...
an average of 5,800 per year.   

 

 

 

 Clinton (DEMOCRAT) went to war in Bosnia without UN or French consent.  Bosnia never attacked us.  He was offered Osama bin Laden's head on a platter three times by Sudan and did nothing. Osama has attacked us on multiple occasions.  

 

 

 

 In the years since terrorists attacked us, President Bush has liberated two countries, crushed the Taliban, crippled al-Qaida, put nuclear inspectors in Libya, Iran, and, North Korea without firing a shot, and captured a terrorist who slaughtered 300,000 of his own people.  And the Democrats are complaining about how long the war is taking.
 
But Wait, There's more.  


 

 

 

It took less time to take Iraq than it took Janet Reno (DEMOCRAT) to take the Branch Davidian compound That was a 51-day operation…

 


 We've been looking for evidence for chemical weapons in Iraq for less time than it took Hillary Clinton (DEMOCRAT) to find the Rose law firm billing records. 

 

 

 

It took less time for the 3rd Infantry Division and the Marines to destroy the Medina Republican Guard than it took Ted Kennedy to call the police after his Oldsmobile sank at Chappaquiddick. 

 

 

 

It took less time to take Iraq than it took to count the votes in Florida !!!

 

 

 

Our Commander-In-Chief is doing a GREAT JOB!  The Military morale is high!

 

 

 

The biased media hopes we are too ignorant to realize the facts.

 

 

 

But Wait ....... There's more! 

 

 

 

JOHN GLENN (on the Senate floor - January 26, 2004)
 
Some people still don't understand why  military personnel
do what they do for a living. This exchange between Senators John Glenn and Senator Howard Metzenbaum is worth reading. Not only is it a pretty impressive impromptu speech, but it's also a good example of one man's explanation of why men and women in the armed services do what they do for a living.

 

 

 

This IS a typical, though sad, example of what some who have never served think of the military 
Senator Metzenbaum (speaking to Senator Glenn):
 

 

'How can you run for Senate when you've never held a real job?' 
 
Senator Glenn (D-Ohio):
  'I served 23 years in the United States Marine Corps.  I served through two wars. I flew 149 missions.  My plane was hit by anti-aircraft fire on 12 different  occasions. I was in the space program. It wasn't my checkbook, Howard; it was my life on the line. It was not a nine-to-five job, where I took time off to take the daily cash receipts to the bank.'
 
'I ask you to go with me, as I went the other day ...
to a veteran's hospital and look those men ... with their mangled bodies ... in the eye, and tell THEM they didn't hold a job!

 

 

 

You go with me to the Space Program at NASA and go, as I have gone, to the widows and Orphans of Ed White, Gus Grissom and Roger Chaffee ... and you look those kids in the eye and tell them that their DAD'S didn't hold a job. 
  
You go with me on Memorial Day and you stand in
Arlington National Cemetery, where I have more friends buried than I'd like to remember, and you watch those waving flags.
You stand there, and you think about this nation,
and you have the gall to tell ME that those people didn't have a job?
 
What about Metzenbaum?'
< B>
 
For those who don't remember
During W.W.II, Howard Metzenbaum was an attorney representing the Communist Party in the USA .
 
 
Now he's a Senator!
 

 

 

 

To top it off have you ever noticed that Obama is so rude and disrespectful that he can't call President Bush, President Bush? He always calls him George Bush, he is his boss and he should respect him even if he doesn't like him, he is teaching the people and youth of this nation to be rude and disrespectful and people want someone like this in office?? What do you think he's going to do if he does get into office?? People you need to wake up!!

 


 
If you can read this, thank a teacher.

If you are reading it in English thank a Veteran.


 

 

 

It might not be a bad idea to keep this circulating. I AM!!!

The most interesting aspect here is that John Glenn retired from the Senate in 1998...

Bumper-sticker logic; cartoon philosophy.
