This is nothing new. Toby Keith has always called himself a conservative Democrat and when asked if he'd changed his mind about supporting the Iraq War, he replied "I never did."

Personally, I don't know what a person can be made of if he'll stand next to Bush at a campaign rally, a man who launched a war that Keith admits he doesn't believe in, and support that man, and then claim to be a friend of the troops.

Didn't Hanoi Jane entertain some troops too! I don't think she was very patriotic to the USA though!

Skinheads support McCain, but the anti Obama people are more concerned about terriorists "supporting" Obama?
McCain would get us in WW3, Obama is way more likely to end these wars.

Jane Fonda is an actress, not an entertainer. No .... she did not entertain the troops.

Really. Do you have something substantial to support your theory that McCain would "get us in WW#"?

Obama has said nothing to suggest that he would not go to war. He said he would get out of Iraq ... very different.

Common ground "my friends" can usually be found.

Free The Army tour - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

How many troops found it entertaining is debatable, but this would count.

Amen! I have been this for years. Are any of you old enough to remember Vietnam? I would like to think if we learned anything at all from that war, it is this:

Our troops do not make policy. They are doing their job. They are deserving of our support whatever the policy by virtue that they are willing to lay down their lives to guarantee our freedoms.

Washington makes policy, it is their job and sometimes they are not very good at it. Washington works for the people, not the other way around, and when the people are displeased they have every right to let Washington know about it.

It is entirely possible to disagree with the administration and still support our troops. In fact, it is our duty to let Washington know if we are displeased out of our loyalty to our troops. As a military mom, I do it every single day.
