Republican Lee Zeldin served his country admirably and with honor during the Iraq war.

Yet, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee called Zeldin a “coward,” and even made a photoshopped image of the war veteran as the Cowardly Lion from “The Wizard of Oz.”

Friday morning on Fox News, Zeldin responded as only a soldier could:

"You have some liberal Democrat hack who is hiding behind his Twitter account, stuffs his face with cheese doodles, sending out press releases on DCCC letterhead.  Shameful attacks.

*

The fact is Nancy Pelosi, Steve Israel, Tim Bishop, they’ve never served a day. And I think when I was sitting at the door on that Black Hawk and the drum master hits the back of your head and you do what's so unnatural, jumping out with a parachute.

*

Here you are and you fast forward to today and you have these Democratic hacks out of Washington who want to change the subject and fling insults and say I’m a coward. It just doesn’t fit.”

If that doesn't convey true courage and confidence, I don't know what does.
