Karl Rove goes after President Obama for spending Memorial Day in Chicago instead of at Arlington and tells everyone how much the military loves our former warmonger and chickenhawk-in-chief with this fable.

Rove: I know that there's some concern in the military that they don't feel that he sort of gets it. There's an emotional bond between any Commander in Chief and the military. There is a professional bond, there's a Constitutional bond, but there's also an emotional bond and this President sometimes I think that relationship is strained. I'm struck by how many people I see when I go through airports in military uniforms that come up to me and say "Please tell my former Commander in Chief I miss him". And I appreciate the kind sentiments towards President Bush but it also disturbs me a little bit, but I get a sense that they don't feel as they have a close relationship with the Commander in Chief as they used to have.

Gee Karl, maybe if he decided to play dress up and pretended to land an aircraft on a flight carrier that would all change. I believe military personnel are approaching Karl Rove in airports and telling him they miss Bush about as much as I believe he didn't help out Valerie Plame.

Can you help us out?
