Anyone looking into this?|
I've obviously missed something. When did it become appropriate for the Commander-in-Chief to go onto a military installation before a military crowd and denounce the opposition party? I cannot remember a time in my 21-year career when anything remotely like this happened. Is it just me or are we embarked on something very dark and dangerous for our democracy?That same question dawned on me as I saw the "highlights" of the speech. Since 9/11, Bush has pretty much made every major speech at a military base, or at least, in front of a military backdrop. I can see why he'd want that-they're a captive audience-they have to support their Commander-in-Chief. However, if no other President has made a partisan speech at a military base, is it because it's bad form, or illegal?
