I love it when we’re right and they’re wrong.
What I’ve decided, after reading all the links and statements and not-said statements about things that were never said or were said but actually meant something else altogether — by Kerry, Dean, Cleland, Democrat Senators, blogwriters and forum scribes everywhere among the Left, about the “Bush-is-going-to-reinstate-the-draft-if-he-wins” meme (which they’ve said, but claim not to have said, but said and say later they meant something else, or, suggested they might say but then said it anyway and later said that it was misinterpreted, but that it wasn’t meant to…).
You get the idea.
But, it has been said by Democrats — but never by Bush/Republicans, who have said that there’s opposition to reinstating the draft (I will edit later once I find an article to quote but until that time, I’m basing that statement [that Bush/Republicans oppose reinstating the draft nor have indicated that the draft would be reinstated it if Bush is re-elected] on what I’ve read from other reliable Republican sources; however, I’ll readily retract that if and when I find that Bush opines differently than what I’ve stated here about this issue) — so what I’ve decided that the Democrats mean is that THEY are going to reinstate the draft when Bush is re-elected, like a revenge tact, something they’ll do just because they lost and they want to turn the screw.
They are saying, “vote for Bush, and get the draft reinstated,” but what they AREN’T saying is that it’ll be DEMOCRATS who will push to do so, to reinstate the draft, not Bush.
It’s some sort of threat by Democrats, some sort of teenage angst cry, like, “buy this for me or I’ll never speak to you again” (because they’ll draft you and send you awaaaay).
Beware of forked tongues with flame throwers.
