Ever imagine what the Democratic Party sees then they think about the tremendous sacrifice our troops have made in Iraq, and the results of the hard work that hundreds of thousands of our hard-working men and women put in to make Iraq a better, safer, more friendly place for democracy?
Well, you don't have to imagine any more, because they are ready to tell the world. In a campaign ad which they correctly label "devastating" (to the DNC, unfortunately for them), they sum up the value of the sacrifice of our troops in 30 seconds of depressing video trying to sell defeat and demoralization.
Oh, they also pretend to "use McCain's own words", but if you listen you can see that they wouldn't even bother to include a complete sentence, or bother to do a better job of hiding their contempt for the truth -- you can hear the gap as they jump past the truth in McCain's comments.
For those who are uninformed, the quote the DNC falsely provides in that video is "Maybe 100. [bad editing break] That'd be fine with me".
The actual quote from McCain is: ""Maybe 100. As long as Americans are not being injured or harmed or wounded or killed, that'd be fine with me, and I hope it would be fine with you, if we maintain a presence in a very volatile part of the world where al-Qaida is training, recruiting, equipping and motivating people every single day." "
Why is it that the DNC always wants to focus on only the troops who have died, rather than the hundreds of thousands who have fought? Because the fighting for our freedom isn't what interests the Democrats like Howard Dean -- only that our enemies killed some of our brave men and women in the process.
A dead soldier is worth a lot more to the Democratic Party, because they can use their corpses to sell defeat.
