President Bush and Sen. John Kerry are facing off over comments Kerry made Monday about Iraq. He told students at Pasadena City College in California, "You know education, if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don't, you get stuck in Iraq." A Kerry aide told CNN the senator "mangled" his prepared statement, in which he intended to criticize not the military but the president.
President Bush has called Kerry's comments "insulting" and "shameful" and said the Democrat from Massachusetts owes an apology to the U.S. military. Kerry said the president owes the troops an apology for misleading the country into the war in Iraq. What do you think? Does Kerry owe the nation's military an apology, or does Bush?
