Dubya’s dishonesty

Whether or not the documents given to Dan Rather are genuine or not is irrelevant. What is true is that Dubya’s military performance ratings weakened, he did not take a physical (why do people avoid physicals?), he permanently stopped flying guard planes, he went to Alabama and he disobeyed orders by not attending certain drills. Through all, daddy was running interference for his dissolute son.

With a year of guard duty left, Dubya skipped out to Harvard Business School. Taxpayers paid one million dollars training Dubya to fly. He never fulfilled his military obligation.

Is all this telling?

Yes it is. Bush was dishonest about his military behavior then, and he is dishonest about it now … today. He failed the honesty test then, and he fails it now. Dubya’s dishonesty is not open to dispute. Only people who accept reality on faith and not fact can support this dishonest man.
