So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Kerry needs to stop whining

Ok, I've bitten my tongue as long as I can stand. It is painful and I refuse to continue. Kerry is bitching again about how Bush needs to put a stop to the claims of the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth that Kerry has exaggerated his war hero status. Deal with it you big baby. You are the one who keeps touting what a hero you are and how your four months of combat *achoo bullshit* experience makes you qualified to be commander in chief. If you are the one who keeps bringing it into the forefront, expect someone to question it. What are you going to do if you get elected and are attacked as viciously as Bush is being attacked now? Did you hear Dubya whining about you guys picking on his National Guard records that are probably shoved in a warehouse somewhere if they even still exist. No, he didn't. He has the balls to take the attacks like a man and not go whimpering in a corner about it.

This is just complete Kerry party line. He claims that the Swift Boat Vets for Truth are doing Bush's "dirty work" for him as a front group. What the fuck do you call or Follow this link and, if you can stomach the entire cartoon, watch all of it. At the end, it portrays Kerry and Edwards as heroes for a woman's right to choose. I about lost my lunch watching it. Those aren't fronts for Kerry? Give ME a fucking break. You don't hear Bush asking him to back them off. No, Bush just rolls up his sleeve and gets ready to duke it out.

Addition to the post: Bob Dole has a few things to say and this story reiterates what I had to say in this post.

    I, too, have bitten my tongue as long as I can stand it. Are you serious? It's one thing to have the fact that you have NO military record to attack and a completely different thing to attack someone's actual service. The only reason Bush isn't whining is because anything he gets he's brought on himself. Do we really want someone who will "roll up his sleeves and fight" or someone who CAN think cool headedly in any situation. At least I don't see John Kerry coming on commercials saying he approves messages that just attack the other candidate and say nothing about himself. Guess thats ANOTHER difference between republicans and democrats; Republicans would rather trash the candidate and not listen to other's opinions openly while Democrats will talk about the issues and hear BOTH sides of any discussion.

    Well, first off, I love it when I can stir up some shit, but hate it when people can't even sign their name, blog or email. It is really easy to respond anonymously.

    Secondly, please. I'm not even sure where to start on this response. To my knowledge, Bush has said nothing about Kerry's military service. Nothing at all. Kerry is the one attacking Bush and yes, he does, have a record of military service. Simply because someone can't remember seeing him on post X number of years ago doesn't mean he didn't serve. Hell, I can barely remember what I did Friday night and I sure as hell don't have my pay stubs from 15 years ago, let alone more years than that.
    Next, I would greatly prefer someone who thinks AND rolls up his sleeves to fight ANY DAY. What the hell is a "sensitive" war or terror? Do we really want to negotiate with terrorists? Is that really going to accomplish the goal? No. These people don't understand talking, reasoning and compassion. They understand force and not putting up with their bullshit. Bush has not said he "approves" the message on the Swift Boat Vets' commercials if you pay attention.
    And, I don't quite get your point about Republicans not listening to other points of view. I think both parties are quite guilty of that. Most people who consider themselves diehard on either side don't really want to listen to the other's position. I know I don't want to listen to Democratic tripe nine times out of ten.

    Since when is flying a fighter plane a "safe" job!? Fighter pilots die in peacetime all the damn time. There is nothing safe about flying a fighter. Bush inquired about deploying to southeast Asia, but was told that he did not have enough flying time to qualify and that the jet he flew would not be used in that theater. For that matter my old division lost a half dozen guys killed in training accidents, all they did was command tanks and drive hummers. We lost all six of those guys in one calendar year. Military duty is rarely very safe. One of the guys killed was a personnel clerk.

    Kerry really does have guts, it takes a lot to put yourself in for a medal for a scratch that was self inflicted. See he really does roll his sleeves up, had they been down he probably wouldn't have been hurt.

    Do you live in Texas? If so, what did Bush do that was so bad? If not, shut the hell up. I live in Texas and thought he did just fine. He also does very well in every election here, so I think one could objectively say that Texans believe he did a good job and is likely to do a good job in the future.

    As for smarts no number of "daddy's rich friends" gets you a Harvard MBA. Kerry doesn't have one of those, never will. Harvard DOES NOT just give away an MBA. That is why it is one of the most respected business schools in the country.

    Kerry agreed many times that Saddam Hussein should have been removed from power. He only changed his tune after he thought his party was moving to the left and that if he didn't move with it he wouldn't win the nomination. At least Bush will just say something rather than try to find a way to be on every side of every issue.

    Yes, I do live in Texas. I think my previous comments explain what Bush "did wrong". Having an MBA from Harvard for Bush doesnt mean much since he made mostly C's and it didn't do much good since he couldnt run a successful business. If you really want more I'll give it to you. In the Dallas Morning News there were some great letters to the editor that you should read as well. One includes the two websites, and It talks about how George's site has multimedia things all attacking Kerry, but go to Kerry's site and there's only one doing that, the rest pertain to his campaign. The other is about how a vet received many awards for his duty, and he could find 10 people who said he deserved them, yet find 10 who would say he didn't. He also comments on how people will always find a way to say you don't deserve something when you do, if they don't have it. I do think Bush did a bad job as governer, he certainly left Kerry enough debt, now they have to cut education, maybe that's how they keep getting votes...keeping the population uneducated.

    You questioned Bush's service. Now nothing. What would I expect from a person who was off topic to begin with? Not much I guess.

    You have yet to respond to the original post. Kerry attacking Bush for letting "people do his dirty work". At best that is disingenuous, at worst it shows him to be monstrous hypocrite.

    Crying about a budget issue and claiming that education is suffering (the old "its for the children" meme)is also off topic. However, since you brought it up the public schools suck, have sucked for many many years and will very likely continue to suck for a very long time. The crappy part is that I can't afford to send my kids to a better school AND pay taxes to a school district that sucks. Bush's voucher program is not the best solution, but certainly better than the one we have now. Kerry solution seems to be throwing more money into a system that isn't working. Not exactly a vibrant idea.

    K. Well I'm done discussing politics with you. I just stumbled across this site and thought I'd mention a few points. But my first few posts have been proven. I don't mind hearing your side of the discussion, even though I won't change my mind, but not only do I know nothing will change your mind, I also see that, as stated, you won't hear the other side.

    I guess our new troll isn't done. Or are they breeding now?

    What's the matter? Can't stay on topic, you have STILL not answered the original post. All you can do is run around with you fingers in your ears wailing "Bush lied, people died" or some other unintelligent drivel.

    Pity. Don't blindly vote for anybody but Bush.
