I missed this one, but Emphasis Added picked it up.
Here’s the killer paragraph, the one that belongs in the stump speech:
If I am President, never again will parents or husbands or wives of soldiers have to send them body armor instead of photographs and care packages. Last month a young newlywed in Virginia who, as her husband was about to ship out to Iraq, gave him a bulletproof vest for Valentine’s Day. I can tell you right now: in a Kerry Administration, no one will be getting body armor as a gift from a loved one; it will come from the Armed Forces of the United States of America. We will supply our troops with everything they need — and we will reimburse each and every family who has had to buy body armor because this Administration made Valentine’s Day part of the procurement process.
But read the whole thing and judge for yourself.
