    AWOL Indiana Dem Compares Fleeing State to Serving in Afghanistan

    Indiana State Representative Dave Cheetham (D) not only found a way to recently compare his caucus’s running away to Illinois to avoid a vote on an anti-union bill to soldiers serving in Afghanistan, but he also found a way to invoke the children

    This past week, one of the kids in her class, a little first grader’s dad is getting sent to Afghanistan. And he was really sad. And she said, ‘Eell, you know, your dad is doing something really good. He’s going to a country where people there are trying to take away the freedoms of other people there, keep them from living a good life. So he’s leaving to do something good.’ And one of the little girls in class just on her own — and this has never been talked about in class, because my wife doesn’t do that — said, ‘It’s kind of like Mr. Cheatham, he left to make our schools better.’ And when I heard that, that gave me a reason —”

    I beg to defer. You might not go around making this crap up but, never underestimate the Machiavellian abilities of some on the Left. This may not be an example but we all know a few on the Left can have flashes of being quite clever.

    I look at all this type of story with with a bit of wariness having read the Alinski and Cloward and Piven schemes and seen some of the tricks they Liberals have used against the Tea Party, like a few months back when some Congress people lied claiming to have been called Nigger and having been spit on. All of which never happened, but made big news on the Lame Stream Obamedia.

    My cousin is serving in Afghanistan right now and to hear this comparison simply makes me cringe. Just horrible, horrible, horrible to compare hiding out in a hotel room shirking your duties to the brave men and women who are in harms way in Afghanistan who are actually doing their duty. Simply shameful...

    Sad part? Our soldiers fight so cowards like him can subvert the democratic process by running/hiding. Puke.

    Everyone doing something self-serving and shameful tries desperately to justify their actions.

    Am I reading this wrong or is it the little girl who actually made this comparison and not the "AWOL Dem"?

    edit: Nevermind, he was repeating the little girl's deal.

    But yeah let's not bother to hear the rest of the statement. His next sentence was "and that gave me reason..."

    Video ends, conveniently.
