The Pot Calling the Kettle Black

So at the Democratic National Convention, Jimmy Carter pointed out the differences between the military services of George W. Bush and John Kerry. The idea is that since Kerry actually served in Vietnam while Bush kind of got the pampered version of the army (no offense to the National Guard, but I'm just giving the gist of Democrat spew), then Kerry is the better man for our military. Weeeeeeeeeellllllllllll.....IF MILITARY SERVICE IS SO IMPORTANT TO THE DEMOCRATS, WHY DID CLINTON GET ELECTED OVER BOB DOLE (injured in war, just like Kerry) AND GHW BUSH?! The answer? Military service isn't important. They'll just pick and chose what qualities are important based upon what qualities their candidate actually possesses. They knew that there was no way they could gain acceptance for Clinton from true vets, so they downplayed the importance of military service. But now that they got a real war hero on their hands, it is suddenly important. What really needs to be important is the sanctity of human life, the sanctity of marriage, etc. But then, if that was important to the citizens of this country, we wouldn't have to worry about getting a Democrat into office.
