It's All About Vietnam

I know this is old hat, but it's worth noting that the Kerry people just can't get past his service in Vietnam.

"I don't believe it," the vice president said. "I don't think there's any evidence to support the proposition that he would, in fact, do it."

The Democrats called Cheney's comments ironic.

"He has the audacity to question whether a decorated combat veteran who has bled on the battlefield is tough and aggressive enough to keep America safe," said Mark Kitchens, Kerry campaign national security spokesman. "He wants to scare Americans about a possible nuclear 9/11 while the Bush administration has been on the sidelines while the nuclear threats from North Korea and Iran - the word's leading sponsor of terrorism - have increased."
Let's say, for the sake of argument, that Kerry earned all his medals and is a bona fide war hero. Does that mean that he will be a wonderful President with the drive necessary to fight and win the War on Terror? Look, as Cheney suggested, at the record. A few months in Vietnam followed by a few years of America-Hating BS followed by 20+ years in the Senate. Does anyone honestly think that the months in Vietnam should trump the subsequent 20+ years?

The answer is obviously Yes...but I'll never understand it.
