Veterans speak out: We’re not just laundry

From the Truman National Security Project, a video featuring testimony from veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan especially, questioning whether Mitt Romney has what it takes to be Commander-in-Chief of the U.S. armed forces:

This is rather the opposite of  “swift boating,” isn’t it?  An established organization active on national security issues, with a distinguished staff and board of directors, working on a shoe-string, with identified spokesmen.

The Truman Project’s blog lays out the case for President Obama’s election with respect to his initiatives on behalf of veterans.  As much as I would prefer to see those positive achievements emphasized, campaigns don’t really allow much time for careful, thoughtful explanation.

Will there be any effect from this advertisement?  What do you think?


One Response to Veterans speak out: We’re not just laundry

  1. Cathy says:

    I am a veteran that have been left behind. I am disabled and have been fighting for 28 years for disability from veterans affair, but haven’t gave up. If Romney get in office veterans will not only be left behind but forgotten. As I stated I’m at risk every month to keep a roof over my head and have been told that if I lived in the street I could get help with a voucher. Why would anyone want a veteran or anyone else to live on the streets before you can be helped. I had a part-time job that I no longer can do but still can’t get any monies. Yes I have put in for disability and other claims I do qualify for but that is on hold by the veterans admin. is back log working on 2010 claims. Is there help for us that is on going not just one time when you are unable to work? Please vote and just remember who has showed that they care verse the ones that say and have shown they don’t give a damn about the veterans.
