We are fighting in Iraq because a Republican president told us that there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, which, it turned out, didn't exist, and a Republican-controlled Congress went along with him.
Now that Medina County Auditor Mike Kovack is called up to service because of this war, a member of the Medina County Republican Party is running against him and claims that because he is overseas serving his country, he isn't providing "leadership" in the auditor's office. A claim, by the way, she doesn't back up with one shred of evidence. Does this make sense to anyone other than die-hard Republican partisans?
Republicans constantly tell us that we should support our troops, and that questioning any aspect of how President Bush is conducting this war is not supporting our troops. Well, the Medina County Republican Party has shown us how much they care for supporting our troops when it interferes with their quest for political dominance in this county.
