Kerry's Anti-Military Bias Easy To Find -- But Hard To Report?
AP reporter John Solomon has recalled a bit of solid evidence that should be a part of many of the ongoing stories on the "botched" story. Here's an excerpt fromSolomon's story, which is now posted on My Way:
In 1972, as he ran for the House, he was less apologetic in his comments about the merits of a volunteer army. He declared in the questionnaire that he opposed the draft but considered a volunteer army "a greater anathema."Last time I checked, we had a volunteer Army, and we have in Kerry a man who accuses our president of acting in unaccountable manners -- despite all the Congressional hearings.
"I am convinced a volunteer army would be an army of the poor and the black and the brown," Kerry wrote. "We must not repeat the travesty of the inequities present during Vietnam. I also fear having a professional army that views the perpetuation of war crimes as simply 'doing its job.'
"Equally as important, a volunteer army with our present constitutional crisis takes accountability away from the president and put the people further from control over military activities," he wrote.
We also have a strong, capable, well educated and diverse economy -- attributable in part to America being a much greater country than Kerry thinks it is, and in part to the Bush economy being much more robust than anything Kerry could have created.
According to Nexis, Solomon remains the only reporter going with this angle to the story. It's posted high on memeorandum, and Michelle Malkin, among others, is picking it up. Let's see if MSM stays away from it in droves in the days leading up to the election.
