Though Bush may not be everything you think he is...

I'm still with you Phanatic.  The realist tradition will always be primary.


Though interestingly democrats in the United States have always been quasi-realist.

To really be successful they must toughen up though - a poontang like kerry will never be a great president.



Ah yes, Kerry, a decorated war veteran certainly cannot match up to Bush's duty-dodging DUI as*.

So you supported the war in Vietnam Jennaye?  That's interesting.

Some of this is from an op-ed I wrote in my univ. newspaper:

Wow, your univ. newspaper actually printed it?  My Alma mater was the most left institution I have ever seen (not including CBS)

Ha...nope. I submitted it, but this one wasn't actually printed. I should have clarified above. Major lefty paper as well. Although I will give them credit for the few occasions that my pieces do make it to press. Ha CBS...Calif. Berkeley School? or Rathergate?

Mind if I take a shot?

Harvard, Princeton, NYU, U. Wisc., Antioch, Brown, or any in the UC system?

You mean the "type" that doesn't want our troops sent off in harm's way (without proper equipment) for some reason that turned out to be untrue and doesn't want our foreign policy dictated by corporate interests?

Tell Michael Moore to let you type for a while.  ::)

Of course not, but that doesn't take away from the fact that he volunteered for what he thought was a good cause and served bravely.  So if we're talking about "toughness" I think  Kerry had Bush beat by a long shot.

So then you will admit that our soldiers in Iraq are heroes too, right?

I saw that butterball speak at my school. What a travesty. All the commies came out of the woodwork (I spotted more than one hammer-and-sickel t-shirt) Signs included:

"Buy Holy Land Olive Oil! Support Palestinian Farmers!"

"Get the U.S. out of the Philippines"

Guys, are we in the Philippines?

Even he knows by now that running on his war record was a mistake. You shouldn't push the issue.
