We Support The Troops -- So What If We Don't Know What They Look Like

dncvets2.jpg

Michelle Malkin has a hilarious post about the Democrats' efforts to portray themselves as a party that supports military veterans. What is so funny about it is that along with their "We Support Vets" campaign they ran a picture of a soldier from Canada (in the picture above in the beret).

Michelle also reports that LGF found the source of the photo and it appears that a badge on the beret was removed with Photoshop.

I'm with Blackfive on this one: "how screwed up must you be to post about how much your party supports the troops, but not know who your troops are? 'Embarassing' hardly begins to describe this error."

It is embarrassing to post a picture of another country's vets as your own, but I think the picture of all the Democrats is almost as strange. The people in the picture pumping their fists in the air look like they just won the lottery (or since they are Democrats, just got some tax cuts repealed), rather than voicing support for their troops and vets. Check out the guy in the bottom left corner. When is the last time you saw a Democrat look that excited about supporting our troops?

Update: Michelle has updated to note the DNC has removed the soldier's picture and replaced it with an American flag. A few readers noticed that the flag looks like it has been burned. It looks that way to me, too. I don't know if that is the picture I would have chosen if trying to distract voters from the flag burners supporting my party.

I think I have figured out where the picture of the people above came from -- a Democrat audience in a showing of the Bush assassination movie. Actually a commenter, Dave, says that LGF reader Cattt discovered it is a stock photo.

Update II: Hot Air says the DNC didn't do the photoshopping themselves.

Laura Lee Donoho thought the picture of the people they chose to use was strange, too.

Update III: It just dawned on me that if the Democrats needed to know what a veteran of the U.S. military looked like, they could have just asked me. I pulled this one out of my wedding album:

smartguy:

Are you people morons? It sure seems like it.

Republicans complain of the Democrats hypocrisy when they use stock photos in ads.

Democrats complain that the Bush administration has squandered all of the integrity of the White House, while Sandy Berger is stuffing historical documents down his pants.

These scenes are repeated over and over and over.

And each side continues to blame the other, while nothing gets done. Is it any wonder that the public assumes a politician is a liar? That politicians are ranked below car salesmen for integrity and honesty?

Look at reality. Government officials don't care about the voters that put them in office. They are just there for their own personal gain, at whatever cost. It has nothing to do with political parties.

What are the chances the DNC would pay for a photo shopped picture of a Canadian soldier on Rememberance Day -when they could have walked out of that hell hole they call DNC headquarters and taken a few photos of American military on Veteran's Day?


Well hell it's a trick question because you've got to factor in that ever present variable when it comes to the Democrats-they are lazy...

So once again the Democrats beat the prevailing odds-and they couldn't even do it all by themsleves-they paid someone else.

Oh, hypocrisy -- thy name is "Republican".

Nincompoopery -- they name is "Lee."

The Republican photoshop didn't portray the soldiers as anything but American. IIRC, they did it to remove President Bush and a podium from the shot. Kind of silly, but it's certainly not on the level of portraying Canadian soldiers as American or a generic group of people from a stock photo as "veterans & military families."

Sorry, Lee, but the liberals have cornered the market on "fake, but accurate" photos. That Republicans have done it once or twice (figuratively speaking) doesn't give you nitwits a pass.

Let's see when they took to COURT the votes of US military serving overseas and voting by absentee ballot.

Every vote counts for the Dems {sometimes twice in your big Dem corruption cities}-and they aren't into details like voter ID until-it comes to military absentee votes-

Then they want DNA samples-off the back of the stamps the military postal system doesn't use.

So details, details about the military-the Democrats could care less-until it comes time to scrutinize their votes.

The Democrats knew the military wasn't voting for them. Scary.

The stock photo of the crowd? Who cares. They needed a crowd. The Canadian soldeir labelled as a US soldier? Just more proof that the Dems understand the military so little no one noticed it wasn't even American.

I don't attribute this to malice. Brain dead stupid---yes.

When your party is being accused of not supporting the military and you decide to post up a pro-military site you should triple check that your i's are dotted and t's are crossed.

All this ad told me is that the Democratic party is either too ignorant or too careless about military matters. If they can't even get a correct picture of the correct Armed Forces in an ad how in the hell do I even begin to trust them with the real thing?

This is about as stupid as it gets. You claim to be pro-military and then hand your political opponent a gift showing you don't know your own soldiers from another nation. It's similar to Kerry giving his famous "I voted for before I voted against" during the height of being accused of flip-flopping. He may have had a legit argument at the time but he handed his opponents a sound-bite they could beat him over the ehad with.

This is similar.

This is too comical but fits with every democrat's post, evidently they slip them under the door at the local mental facility.

Almost as clever as Peloshi's rant that they are going to change the direction of the economy. Let's see how that will have to work.

Stock Market at record high.
Peloshi, Crash the stock market.

Tax rates for working class lowest in years.
Peloshi, Raise taxes on the working class.

Interest rates low and steady.
Peloshi, Revert to Dimmy Carter interest of 21% +

Gas prices going down.
Peloshi, Raise gas prices to $6.00 P.G. to equal Dimmy Carter years. Initiate price controls to make sure they stay high. The Islamic terrorists need more American money.

Home ownership rates highest in history.
Peloshi, raise interest rates so people can't buy and current owners lose their homes.

No terrorist attacks on American Soil for 5 YRS.
Peloshi, support the terrorists to enable a massive attack so they can blame Bush. More BDS.

Peloshi, Drain the swamp in the house of Rep's. Isn't she in the House? How many years?
Peloshi, refill the house swamp with taxpayer dollars.

Why is the Foley affair still on every democrats mind? They have no other agenda and there is only room in a pea brain for one item at a time.

Lee:

Wasn't suggesting it did -- just showing that the Republican"outrage" over this is as hypocritical as most other recent instances of Republican "outrage".

Funny, no Republicans were outraged when Foley practiced his sexual prepdation on under-aged Congressional pages -- at least no one was outraged enough to do anything about it until the news agencies published the sordid details - then they turned hypocrits and were condemning the man. Too little, too late. Why did the news agencies have to break this news first? And even then Foley resigned - the Republicans didn't kick him out.

Hastert knew about Foley's follies for several years - no outrage there - but let the Democrats use a stock photo in an ad (a common practice for Republicans and Democrats)and Republicans suddenly ignore their own photoshopped phoniness, and are up in arms. LOL! How phony can you get?

The Democrats are trying to convince voters they know and care about those issues and this is certainly not the way to do that.

I have to concur with Laura Ingraham, the democrats don't want to talk about the issues, so they want people to focus on Foley.

Gas prices are down, the economy is rolling, recruitment is up (don't hear about that hey MSM?), the nation isn't crumbling because of the Foley mess, we haven't been attacked by terrorists in 5 years, Saddam is gone, Iran is sweating...and all the democrats can do is say they can do things better or let their MSM lapdogs trickle out trumped-up scandals right before the election.

muirgeo:Hey did you send the DNC your links yet? Maybe by this time tomorrow someone will have found them a picture of an actual US soldier.Posting a long list of war news-even carefully selected negative war news-demonstrates how utterly INEXCUSABLE and UNFORGIVABLE it is for the Democratic party-after FIVE YEARS of fighting-to be unable to recognize the uniform of a US soldier.Yeah,you care about the troops all right.Maybe that's why so many Democrats spit on troops returning from Vietnam-they didn't recognize that they were American! muirgeo...LOL...IDIOT!!!

Hey "mun-go" (linkman) a "link" that has the words AIR AMERICA and DAILY KOS in it and you expect anyone to do anything but laugh? he he Wait a minute I think you should change your name to CUT AND PASTE.

Mungo, Lee, et al:

At least we pull for AMERICAN troops, and not Canadians.

What a bunch of friggin' idiots. Everything the average joe suspects is true of you guys, really is true.

Couldn't find a picture of an Iraqi terrorist, huh?

Mitchell:

Perhaps all the focusing on Mr. Foley has distracted Dem's attention from "The Troops."

Or, perhaps they couldn't find a picture of a North Korean.

In any event, the world still turns, and busy adults in the Administration have to attend to a few emergent matters today, even if others only have to indulge their fantasies, and grudges.

RobLACa.:

These UN-AMERICAN blood farts are so brain dead they didn't even think to put up a picture of their "WAR HERO" Fraud Kerry the Traitor. Those are the ones the Democrats worship and support.

Xrlq:
It is embarrassing to post a picture of another country's vets as your own, but I think the picture of all the Democrats is almost as strange.

Who says they're Democrats? All they're even supposed to be is a "Large Crowd of People Cheering and Raising Their Fists."

That is the democrat per... (Below threshold)
RobLACa.:

That is the democrat perpetual fraud for ya. It never ends and they never have to worry about being called on it thanks to their partners in the Media. Democrats just like Hollywood Movies are not real. They are a complete fantasy and sick performance by despicable dishonest people. That is all.

Until the Dems can bog down... (Below threshold)
Robert:

Until the Dems can bog down our soldiers in an unwinnable war with no exit strategy, not enough troops, not enough armor, and make them stay like sitting ducks as they get picked off by enemies in the 'last throes' of an insurgency, they are just amateurs blowing smoke.

Dems: Republican-lite.
