President Bush Responds to John Kerry's Repugnant Comments

President Bush struck back at John Kerry after he made his unbelievably crass remarks about our military men and women in Iraq:

In the mist of a heated campaign season, there are somethings we should all be able to agree on, and one of the most important is that every one of our troops deserves our respect and our gratitude.

Yesterday, my opponent in 2004 presidential race, Senator Kerry, was speaking to a group of young people in California. I want you to listen to what he said. He said, “You know, education, if you make the most of it, if you study hard and you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don’t, you get stuck in Iraq.”

The senator’s suggestion that the men and women of our military are somehow uneducated is insulting and it is shameful. The members of the United States military are plenty smart and they are plenty brave and the senator from Massachusetts owes them an apology.

Ouch. That is going to bruise.

Update: Jay at Stop the ACLU has the video of President Bush demanding that John Kerry apologize to our troops.

President Bush’s comments on Kerry don’t start until almost the end of the video. Put the player’s curser at the 2:45 mark to get right to the president’s remarks, but be aware that the counter goes backwards.
