If Bush Believes Iraq is a Noble Cause and a Better Way of Life, Why Aren't His Daughters Signed UP?

Bush, who was himself AWOL and avoided combat duty during the Vietnam era, can't expect that all in this country will agree with his promotion of families sacrificing family members in the Iraq War as long as his family doesn't value the "noble cause" enough to enlist.

Think Progress

Speaking in Idaho a few minutes ago, Bush argued that moms like Cindy Sheehan are a threat to freedom:

There are few things more difficult in life than seeing a loved one go off to war, and here in Idaho, a mom named Tammy Pruitt…knows that feeling six times over.

Tammy has four sons serving in Iraq right now with the Idaho National Guard — Eric, Evan, Greg, and Jeff. Last year, her husband Leon and another son Aaron returned from Iraq where they helped train Iraqi firefighters in Mosul.

Tammy says this — and I want you to hear this — “I know that if something happens to one of the boys, they would leave this world doing what they believe, what they think is right for our country. And I guess you couldn’t ask for a better way of life than giving it for something you believe in.”

America lives in freedom because of families like the Pruitts.

For more on the administration’s efforts to demonize its war critics, check out today’s Progress Report.

Americans live in freedom because of citizens who value the constitutional principles our country was founded on, including freedom of speech. Cindy Sheehan is one of those we value, because she believes in voicing her opinion that Bush owes us an answer about some pressing issues that call into question his reasons for the Iraq War.
