Bout Time, you have just misstepped. You say you are attentive to facts, but not allegations passing as facts. That is incorrect. You call Bush an
idiot, and that is your allegation, which has no merit and is certainly not based in fact. You merely have ignored the facts laid out to you in
previous discussions on this. Whatever he is, no matter how he has disappointed me, he is no idiot. And, while he isn't doing things as I'd
prefer, he has done much less damage to the Constitution or the sovereignty of this nation than Bubba did even when factoring in the Homeland Defense
idea. However, for you to face these facts you'd have to get over the one thing you are that you vehemently deny - a die-hard liberal calling
himself a centrist.
I'm sorry, I really like you, but it's better the truth come from a friend that enjoys your company than an enemy that relishes the sight of any
So that's what an "intervention" sounds like!
I'll remember that in case I ever get addicted to something!
Here's the gauntlet I'll throw down that I hope is picked up by you and the non-prescription-drugs-to regulate-functioning-in-society-Right Wing (
there's what? 2 of those guys!?!
Please start a thread with the side by side analysis of what you deem to be the great curtailment of freedoms to the American citizenry that occured
under Clinton CONTRASTED with the thread I laid out on the damage done by the USPA and other muisguided Homeland security tack ons by Bush.
It's a challenge boys, don't punk out!
Again, no black & white, Java. The fact that I despise the illegal squatter in the Oval Office does not make me a "die hard Liberal". Strongly
Anti-Bush? Oh Hell yeah. For socialized medicine, a welfare state or disbanding of the military? Hell no.
The 'facts' to support the idea that Bush is an idiot are there for anyone with open ears&eyes!
That we are conditioned to have such low expectations for the most powerful man in the world, is the brilliance of deception to which I think you
attribute to him.
But here's his resume & you tell me if someone with half that blush would get a quarter of the slack he's cut:
- 'graduate' of Yale & Harvard
- CEO and controlling board member to several publicly traded companies and a pro sports franchise
- Gov. of Texas
He makes Gerald Ford seem like Churchil & Jack Welch rolled into one!!
