Say what you will about the war in Iraq, or Bush, or Republicans in general, I’ve always been impressed with the fact that no one on any side of the debate has attacked our soldiers. Until now. The MoveOn attack on General Petraeus–a man who is putting his life on the line every day–as a traitor is something that’s new to the discussion. Today, there was an amendment adopted in the US Senate to repudiate MoveOn’s attack on the General that passed 72-25. Hillary Clinton of New York and Christopher Dodd of Connecticut voted against. Obama missed the vote. MoveOn publicly claims that it has “bought and paid for” the Democratic Party? Isn’t any Democrat going to say differently?? Other than John Kerry, is there a Democrat willing to say that personal attack on our active duty soldiers is out of bounds? Or should I just assume this is the direction of public discourse in America and move on?
