support the troops

When Democrats say support the troops that's exactly what they mean. When Republicans say it they mean support either the war or Bush.
 If Field Marshall Bush really cared about reigning in DoD spending, why does he keep throwing billions to a governmental entity that has a record-keeping track record that would make Ken Lay blush?  Bush rips off our veterans, but pours billions more into a Department of Defense that can't account for $2.3 trillion in transactions.  Where is the outrage over rewarding an entity that cannot account for TWENTY FIVE percent of what it spends? That's trillions of dollars lining the pockets of war profiteers while the bravest of Americans are forced to pay out of their own pockets for body armor on the battlefield, and for their  medicines when they come to battle the realities of their injuries at home.  But hey, screw the troops, let's pour $84.2 billion for weapons systems, an 8% increase.  Keep pouring that money into a black hole of unaccountability, Commander. As long as you show up with a turkey once a year in some cafeteria on a military base, that'll keep the troops happy.
