For Those Of You Who Pay Attention To Such Things
There are some memos floating around (that the White House apparently withheld this past winter) that show evidence that Dubya disobeyed a direct order from his commanders while in the Texas Air National Guard and that certain people bent over backwards to keep him from reaping the consequences of his actions. The far right, of course, is screaming forgery, but after a day or so of research these claims have been firmly struck down. Now, hopefully, the media will catch on and start talking about the actual content of the memos and their implications on Dubya's military service.
Hmmm, who do I want as Commander-in-Chief, a dude who went into the Nat'l Guard to avoid the draft and then went AWOL, or a dude who went when he didn't have to and earned numerous citations? It's not a tough call. Oh, and this whole line of attack is relevant, seeing as all Dubya's running on is his "leadership." Leadership doesn't just appear when you're 50 - at that age it's something you've been doing (or not doing) for a long time.
