In response to Eva Lano’s Oct. 18 letter titled, “Al Gore: Service claims don’t wash,” in which she lambasted Gore’s Vietnam service record: It just goes to show how ill-informed voters are with regard to the abysmal resume of George W. Bush.
He has no service record because his daddy got him into the reserves and he failed to report for over a year. He stayed home the entire time while our brave men and women did service in Vietnam. Mr. Gore’s service to this country spans over a 24-year period in which he served as a senator and vice-president, to name a few accomplishments.
Bush embellishes and lies about his record on the campaign stump at every stop, talking about his clear vision (whatever that’s supposed to mean), his leadership ability and his compassionate conservatism (an oxymoron at best). I am sick and tired of Al Gore taking a beating because he’s not a likeable fellow. Vote Gore! He won’t embarrass us, and he’s served our country for years with dignity.
