The Only Draft Has Been From Hot Air
When Bush was running for re-election, there was a constant refrain from the Left that President Bush would re-institute the draft. Never mind that he denied it, and that the only bill in the House to bring back the draft was proposed by Democrat Chuck Rangel of New York.
No, the fear mongering method of turning young voters against President Bush was to threaten over and over again that President Bush would, in fact would be forced to, bring back the draft.
Kerry suggested it. Paul Krugman suggested it. NYT columnist Bob Herbert said it. (Who is this Bob Herbert? This sums him up nicely.) Michael Moore said it and promoted the idea on his site. Lots of leftist activists said it.
It still has not happened. It still isn't being discussed. It isn't going to happen.
Will they admit they were wrong? Will they admit they knew they were wrong when the accusation was made?
