They Get Letters

5 in the NYT. Here's just 1:
How can President Bush go on a monthlong vacation when our troops are at war and fighting what appears to be a losing battle? Has he no compassion for the families that are not going on vacation because a loved one is in Iraq? Or the families that have lost a member in the fighting?

What about the marines who were just killed, most of whom were based in Ohio?

President Bush needs to act responsibly - be a leader and wait at his desk until his troops come home or until he can make them safer over there. No one would quibble about a few days off, but this is ridiculous and insulting to all military families, past and present.

I am the daughter of Lt. Col. James White, who served and was a prisoner of war in World War II. He did America proud.

President Bush, make us proud of you.

Don't hold your breath, Marilyn.

The letter Atrios posted will rip your heart out.

I say let him go on vacation and show us what he's made of.

Meanwhile, the generals tell us the insurgency is "not expanding," like we're supposed to take that as a good sign.

Remember the last time Bush took a long vacation in August? After receiving an explicit threat from AQ?

Notice any parallels?

Bush on vacation.
AQ issuing threats.

If America gets attacked like London, while Bush is clearing brush....

Support your local revolution!

Give the guy a break, he's hard at work fighting the "War on Brush", excuse me, I mean the "Ranch-wide Struggle Against Extreme Decomposing Vegetation"
From American Idol.
