It looks like John Gard’s campaign took my advice (or, more likely, they have common sense) and are choosing to highlight the Obama-like mental gymnastics that are causing Rep. Kagen to deny the success of our troops in Iraq:
Republican congressional candidate John Gard said Thursday he could not believe his opponent, Rep. Steve Kagen, said a surge of U.S. troops in Iraq alone is not the reason for the quieting of the violence in that country.
Gard, of Suamico, said Kagen’s comment implied U.S. troops were not the reason for reduced violence in the war-torn country.
Gard held a news conference Thursday at VFW Post 7534 in Howard and shared the podium with veterans and Ken Jerabek, the father of Pfc. Ryan Jerabek, the U.S. Marine from Hobart who was killed in Iraq in 2004.
The people of Wisconsin’s 8th District need a representative who doesn’t view American success in Iraq as a negative. We cannot afford our leaders to be politically invested in defeat.
