A website called Bullmoose (uses Teddy's images, but not his ideals) can't stand that President Bush would dare host an inaugural ball.

Let them eat cake indeed. We live at a time when wounded troops returning from Iraq have their incomes reduced because they are denied full combat pay, but America can afford a $40 million gala party.

Let the good times roll.

Yes, certainly troops that are no longer in a combat zone no longer receive combat pay. That's a no brainer, what the moose forgot was that these troops will be receiving disability pay for the rest of their lives. So, would they rather have an extra $150/month (or is it more now?) or would they rather get substantially more from disability? It's something that the famously Republican Teddy Roosevelt would have known.
