Generals to Congress, “Vote for vets, not for Bush”

I’m glad to see this happening, but can’t help but wonder at the state of the citizenry (and count myself among those I wonder about) when it’s retired Army generals who are making more of a fuss over this stinking war than the average Joe and Joanne in the streets. In the meantime, check it out. (Thanks to TalkLeft for bringing it to my attention.) TV ads by generals taking Bush to task for being the Lame-o-in-chief, produced by VoteVets Action Fund.
VoteVets.org Launches ‘Generals’ Ad Blitz You wanted it, you got it! VoteVets.org is today launching a three-ad series featuring three retired generals, two of whom were George Bush’s commanders on the ground. In the first ad, retired Major General John Batiste takes the President on, directly, when he says that he’s just ‘listening to commanders on the ground’ in Iraq. Batiste should know if the President is listening or not, since he was one of those commanders! Our ads are airing in states and districts of those Members of Congress who are very close to breaking with the President on Iraq, and joining the troops and American people. They are: Senators Susan Collins, John Sununu, John Warner, and Norm Coleman, and Representatives Mary Bono, Phil English, Randy Kuhl, Jim Walsh, Heather Wilson, Jo Ann Emerson, Tim Johnson, Mike Rogers, Fred Upton, and Mike Castle. Mentioning them by name at the end, the local spots will call on them to “Protect America, Not George Bush.” Next week, we’ll launch another ad with retired Major General Paul Eaton. And, after that, the campaign will wrap up with a powerful ad from former NATO Allied Supreme Commander, General Wesley Clark. Help keep our ads on the air. We’re trying to raise $100,000 to get these ads on nationally. Help us spread the word click here to donate.
See the ad on YouTube.
