It's hard to fight for a liar

From CNN:

HEMMER: You're soon to be the wife of a member of the U.S. military. It comes with the territory in many ways. What have you thought about how difficult this might be going forward in the future with him, knowing that the U.S. military's engaged in so many different hotspots around the world?

HAMILTON: We have actually, since this deployment began, we have decided that we will no longer be in the army.

HEMMER: Oh, he's getting out after this tour of duty in Iraq? How do feel about that?

HAMILTON: Yes, yes. He can't stand for it.

HEMMER: Why is that?

HAMILTON: I support him 100 percent.

HEMMER: Why do you say he can't stand it?

HAMILTON: It's hard on the families, it's hard on the soldiers, and it's especially hard to know that you put your faith and trust into a president, and they continue to lie to you, they break promises, and it's hard to fight for somebody like that.

From the comment board:
CNN this instant. A five-year-old little blond army boy: "We wanted my daddy to be home for my birthday, but the President changed his mind again. He keeps on doing that."
We were waiting for the tipping point. We were saying the higher Bush rose, the harder he would fall.

Well, the dam has burst. Ari got out just in time, 'cause things are going to get ugly for Bush.
