Swiftboating 2012

The "Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund Inc."  Just go read the article.  It's making me too sick to my stomach to even think about it.

I don’t think Americans will fall for this one, GE, except the ones that already want to.

One of the commenters at the site observes “Remember the attempts to go after Bush's AWOL activities in 2004? And that was based on likely truth. It went nowhere.’

And perhaps he has a point.

Moreover, getting Bin Laden is much more tangible, present and unequivocally positive thing than the Vietnam War. If Romney’s rabble want to talk about that all day…. let ‘em.

'tangible' in the sense of it being something that speaks to how Americans feel about the world right now, I mean.

Of course the Vietnam War was pretty damned tangible to those who were in it.

I wish Devo's song "Don't Roof Rack Me, Bro! (Remember Seamus)" could act as an effective countermeasure.
