Response to YAF Chickenhawk Talking Points
I just posted this on the Young Americans for Freedom "Chickenhawk" thread:
Why the "Chickenhawk Argument" is patriotic!
Thanks to all who have commented thus far, but I think most of you are missing the point.
The "Chickenhawk Argument" is actually quite patriotic.
Here's how: Our country has had elections over the past few years, by which the American people have selected one party to lead the entire country (both Houses of Congress and the White House; the President has yet to veto a single bill).
Leadership means responsibilities.
Operation Yellow Elephant reminds the current and future leaders of our governing party of their leadership responsibilities. After all, if you cannot lead our military into war, or even consider [just consider!] volunteering yourself if you are eligible, then you really aren't worthy of leading our country.
So, what the "Chickenhawk Argument" is really doing is motivate Our President's strongest supporters to Save This Presidency by volunteering to Support Our President by serving in the military in Iraq.
Wouldn't it be great if this wasn't satire?
Thank you for your attention.
