President Bush supports our troops...

A 3.5 percent increase in pay, though, is too much for this administration. It would be an extra half percent but that costs too much for our "budget". Funny how President Bush wants to extend our soldier's time in the field away from their friends and families but cannot find a way to give some extra pay.

This administration has clearly shown that they use our military as expensive props like standing on a U.S. carrier or backdrops to give speeches. They also use our troops as a political shield for their failed policies. Is it 2009 yet?
