That's District 69 Democratic State Representative Dave Cheatham (Dave Cheat 'Em) comparing his retreat to Illinois to avoid doing his job to soldiers being deployed to Afghanistan to fight for their country. Disgusting.
Our soldiers are leaving home to do a job serving their country by going to Afghanistan. The Democrats ran away from doing their jobs serving the people of Indiana by fleeing to Illinois. The soldiers in Afghanistan are fighting and dying. The Democrats aren't in pitched combat. Their lives aren't in danger. They're not dying.
There is no comparison here, and Dave Cheatham shouldn't be making one.
