Stu Rothenberg thinks that Democrats shouldn't bash Republicans for "not supporting the troops", as the VoteVets did when it ran ad against Bush:
If supporters of President George W. Bush's policy of sending another 20,000 troops to Iraq had aired a television ad that argued that opposing the new Bush policy means "you don't support the troops," opponents of the President would have rightly gone bananas.
Uh, Stu? Have you not been paying attention. How many times have we heard the President, the Vice President, the Cabinet, Republican Senators, Republican Congressmen, Republican candidates, Republican Governors, Republican political operatives, conservative pundits, media hacks, and Joe Lieberman say that the Democrats are "against the troops." I don't recall you writing an article any of those 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 times Republicans have claimed Democrats are unpatriotic. Why now? Is it because a Democrat has the temerity to do what Republicans have been doing for years?
