Rolling Thunder Supports Bush

From the Washington Times (UPI):
The veteran group Rolling Thunder rides into Washington this weekend aloft their trademark motorcycles for three days of events honoring their fellow veterans and strengthening ties with President Bush, their choice for November's election.

Rolling Thunder endorsed Bush over Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., a Vietnam veteran who travels widely with his "band of brothers," even though there are widespread allegations that the president shirked his duty during the conflict. And their choice may reflect a larger trend among the veteran community.

A Gallup Poll found that, in an almost inverse of the population at large, veterans prefer Bush over Kerry 50 percent to 41 percent.

Two things to point out here: 1) UPI is still trying to float the Texas Air National Guard non-story that has been proven false so many times, I can't believe professionals are still trying to use it. 2) Mr. Kerry has been trying to pass himself off as the choice for veterens, but it seems clear that his message isn't being received by, you know, veterens.
