We'll Be Awaiting Your Abject Apologies

George Bush released his records of service from his tour of duty in the National Guard, and they prove indisputably that he fulfilled his obligations:

The White House, facing election-year questions about President Bush's military service, released pay records and other information Tuesday that it said supports Bush's assertion that he fulfilled his duty as a member of the Air National Guard during the Vietnam war. The material included annual retirement point summaries and pay records that the White House said show that Bush served. ...

The documents indicate that Bush received credit for nine days of active duty between May 1972 and May 1973, the period that has been cited by Democrats as evidence that Bush shirked his military responsibilities.

A memo written by retired Lt. Col. Albert Lloyd Jr, at the request of the White House, said a review of Bush's records showed that he had "satisfactory years" for the period of 1972-73 and 1973-74 "which proves that he completed his military obligation in a satisfactory manner."

And now that Terry McAuliffe, John Kerry, and Howard Dean have spent the last couple of weeks besmirching Bush's reputation and slandering him, we will all await their apology. In that they have spent the last couple of weeks equating National Guardsmen with draft dodgers, we already know they're unqualified to lead this nation, and we hope the American electorate responds accordingly.
