Mark Noonan of Blogs4Bush responds to Senator Kerry’s claim (and the standard liberal talking point) that:
If you don’t get educated you get stuck in the militray
In fact according to this Heritage Foundation Study:
Additionally, in the most recent edition of Population Representation in the Military Services, the Department of Defense reported that the mean reading level of 2004 recruits is a full grade level higher than that of the comparable youth population. Fewer than 2 percent of wartime recruits have no high school credentials…
Kerry’s statement revealed again what an out of touch elitist snob he is. Kerry has always had a disdain for the US Military and his statement only tells Americans what we have always known about the man. Pure and simple. And I can guarantee you that Pelosi, Reid, Shumer,and that other Clinton flunkie phoney Rahm Emanuel cannot be happy about Frenchie Kerry once again putting the War on Terror and national secuity right back on the front page. I don’t care how challenging things are in Iraq, my gut tells me that the vast majority of the American people know that a San Francisco uber-liberal like Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of House (3rd in line to be Commander and Chief) and Alcee Hastings (impeached and removed from office for corruption and perjury) would chair the House Intel Cmt would not make us any safer by cutting and running in Iraq and treating terrorism like a law enforcement issue.
Thanks Senator Kerry for helping to remind Americans.Something tells me Rove was behind this one…The guy is amazing.
