Bush has created a fiasco. Cindy Sheehan has captured the American imagination and, like a pied piper, she is gathering a different army of recruits. Meanwhile, the Guard and Reserves are having trouble:
On Wednesday the Pentagon announced that as of July 31 the Army National Guard was running 23 percent behind in recruiting for the year and the Army Reserve was 20 percent behind. The Marine Reserve was right at its goal.
Nice work, Bush. Seems like a lot of people have no desire to fight a war in Asia based on a pack of lies. Who woulda thunk it? I mean, wouldn’t you rather, I don’t know, go to Harvard Business School, or something?
