It seems Don Imus doesn't have problem supporting the troops and wonders why all the other conservative blogs hate the troops and notes that he's getting quite a few links from grou
Why Don’t Conservatives Support The Troops?
February 24th, 2007 · 30 Comments
Senator Ted Stevens (R) Alaska told us in a famous speech on the floor of the Senate that the Internet was a series of tubes. Actually the Internet runs on links. That’s how we exchange information and find things.
During the past week I’ve gotten several links from some of the biggest liberal blogs/websites on the internet, Crooks & Liars, Think Progress, and Daily Kos. These are not sites that would normally link to this blog. As anyone who reads my blog knows I routinely slam liberal politicians and media.
But these guys rose above politics to try and bring awareness to the problems at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. Some might say they’re doing it as an opportunity to slam the Bush Administration. I don’t think that’s it. I think it’s a genuine concern for active duty soldiers and veterans.
I wondered why I hadn’t received a single link from a conservative blog or website. I thought well they just didn’t like any of my posts. So I went and checked the right wing blogs I normally read when I get time, Redstate, Pajama Media, Hot Air, and Michelle Malkin. Except for Ms. Malkin, not one of these sites even mentioned the Washington Post Story or anything about Walter Reed that I could find. When Malkin talks about it. She was not able to rise above politics and used it as an opportunity to slam the liberal media and democrats. She even had the balls to say she wrote about this issue 8 years ago.
I don’t know why conservatives don’t support the troops. You would think an issue as important as this would cause people to forget about politics for a few minutes. We can disagree about the war, how we got there, and how we’re going to leave. But everyone should be doing everything they possibly can to REALLY support these wounded American troops. Supporting the war, the President, and republicans or democrats, has nothing to do with supporting the troops.
I can assure you this story is only going to get bigger. Hopefully the conservatives can push aside politics and really support the troops. (link)
