Harkin Says It: Cheney Is A Coward
Tom Harkin spoke the truth yesterday: Dick Cheney is a coward.
"It just outrages me that someone who got five deferments during Vietnam and said he had 'other priorities' at that time would say that."
"They're running scared because John Kerry has a war record and they don't," said Harkin. "What he (Cheney) is doing and what he is saying is cowardly. The actions are cowardly."
"When I hear this coming from Dick Cheney, who was a coward, who would not serve during the Vietnam War, it makes my blood boil," said Harkin.
"He'll be tough, but he'll be tough with someone else's kid's blood," said Harkin.
Harkin said he decided to speak out because Republicans have a history of attacking on the issue of patriotism, including questioning the patriotism of former Sen. Max Cleland, who lost both legs and an arm to a grenade in Vietnam.
Too often, those who are targeted simply ignore the charges, Harkin said.
"You can't let them do that again," said Harkin. "If you let these crazy attacks go unanswered, they take on a life of their own."
I totally agree. Both Bush and Cheney are cowards, and both would rather send other parentsí kids to die for them, while thumping their chests like the true chicken hawk patriots they really are.
Itís that simple: Bush and Cheney are cowards.
