Amazing, you seem to be sure that Bush lies, but you seem to disregard that your boy Kerry has lied more on the trail than Bush did since being
Bush's lies are lies in the sense of his gross omissions when telling the public what is happening. I do believe that the two premises he cited for
our need to wage war were lies, but that is because I believe that his
primary purpose was economic, and that will become more evident in time.
But the omissions. He has never answered for the failings of this war. It was poorly planned, by the wrong people, for the wrong reasons. The bottom
line is, the primary intent behind the war was never to win
. If your intent in war is not to win, and win decisively, then war shouldn't be
waged at all. He disregarded the experienced advice of his generals, notably his SECDEF, who should know, and does know a buttload more than Rumsfeld
what he's talking about.
Bush just wanted to go into Bagdad as cheaply as possible, win a quick, easy battle, and go down in history as a great war president, and make some
quick cash along the way. But he is an arrogant, cocky, spoiled little child in grown-up form. Just look at his face and listen to his voice when he
reacts to different situations. He doesn't have the required level of humility to be well rounded enough person to be good for his position. He's
been wrong on so many things, but at this point, he couldn't cop to them, because that might cost him the election. He, and his followers are the
type of people who refuse to be wrong (so are many of Kerry's, by the way, wherein lie most of our problems).
As far as Kerry's concerned, I resent him being called 'my boy' just about as much as I resent his nomination for the presidency of the United
States. To be honest with you, he may have lied, but I wouldn't know because I really haven't listened to him that much. I have no more faith in
Kerry than I do Bush right now, because I don't think he has the strength of character and innate leadership skills that would be required of a
leader to get us out of what we're in right now. He hasn't said anything substantial, in my opinion, and that is why I dont' listen to him. We need
and extraordinary American to step up right now, and even though they are plentiful, they are either too poor to compete, or they're smart enough to
stay out of it. Sad. Sadder, Kerry is just a doofus.
I'm a conservative, yet non-religious Republican, but that was because of Reagan, who was a responsible, mature, and good man who, when mistakes were
made by him, he admitted it and apologised. A person that reminds me of him is McCain, for whom I will be voting. Republicans who support Bush,
compare Bush to some of your favorite contemporary Republicans, and ask yourself, would you prefer Bush over the others? Democrats do the same.
I'm voting McCain in Utah. Bush is going to win this state electorate anyway. By voting Kerry, I would waste the vote, but by voting McCain, I will
be supporting him for nomination in 2008, which I think he'll be seeking. The more votes he gets now, the more support he'll have.
The point is, whoever wins this one, Bush or Kerry, neither one is going to rally the people more completely, we'll still be split 50/50, and nothing
will get done as a result. Either we will be no better off in 2008, or we will backslide further.
And this election race has been representative of the personalities running. This race has been a farcical representation of American politics.
It is a satire in, and of, itself. Bush and Kerry are clown shoes.
I could rant more, and I will, but at someone else now. Thank, TC, for allowing me to solidify and clarify my position, and more importantly, feel
good about myself.
