Dick Cheney clarifies what "supporting the troops" means

It's not that I object to signs like "Support the troops, bring them home," but in general I try to avoid that phrase. Why? Because the people who demand that we "support the troops" really mean "support their mission," as Dick Cheney made very clear today:
"You cannot pursue this fiction that some of them [Democrats] like to pursue, that they 'support the troops,' but they're opposed to everything the troops are doing. That's just a non-sensical statement."
I do appreciate Cheney's honesty. I'd appreciate it even more if he and others like him would stop saying "support the troops" altogether and start saying what Cheney admits they mean - "Support the mission."
