Unfit for Command

So exactly how is this scandalous rag of a book ANY different form M.Moore's scandalous ficticious,attacks on the president. Seems like there are low-life creeps on both sides. I am shocked!

You need to say "I am shocked" with a more suprised tone. I would suggest studying Claude Rains' Capt Louis Renault (see there was a car tie-in here) in Casablanca

"I'm shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in here!"

I am equal to the task on not reading that book as I am also equal to the task of not seeing Moore's movie for much the same reason. I think they're both opportunistic propaganda unworthy of my time and treasure.

I don't give a rat's ass about somebody's military record forty f**king years ago, especially when they have a public record before my very eyes that is a heck of a lot more meaningful.

OTOH, Jane Fonda can kiss my a$$.

Well, is it just hanging out exposed all the time, waiting for Jane to come by and kiss it? Is this a public announcement she is supposed to read and possibly take you up on your offer, if that is what it was? How exactly is it that you know she can kiss your a$$, or would kiss your a$$? Would she need an appointment, would it be a public a$$ kissing, or would this be something you would share with us on the forum here?

Bot,
You mean Kerry HAS a voting record? I haven't heard him mention any of his votes over the last 20 years. Why might that be?

However you can arrange it would be fine with me.

How do I know she can kiss my a$$? Well, its my a$$, pal. It follows me around everywhere I go and when I'm not sitting on it, she can stand in line.

Right behind you.

You should try increasing your reading level above the propaganda point. It might actually do you some good.

So on one hand, the Republicans declare Kerry has the most liberal voting record in Congress. On the other, they claim he has no record at all. In the meantime during this multi-million dollar corporate financed double-speak negative attack, we are all distracted from Bush's record of economic failure and military disaster. Bush's legislative accomplishments consist of bribing the Congress with as much pork as they can choke on, ruining the nation with debt. He calls Kerry a socialist, while pushing thru a Prescription Drug bill that would do any socialist proud, compromising his own principles so he can bribe some more votes using the public treasury. We have a choice between a man who has served his constituents well, and a craven corrupt opportunist who will compromise any of the principles he actually has left, if any, to buy your vote. Take your pick.

In 20 years (or so) in the senate Kerry passed 57 bills. Care to guess how many bills Cheney passed in his 11 years in the house?

Actually, a voter is suppose to consider whether the VP is fit for the office of the Presidency. His own record is important. I shudder to think.

If anyone examined Bush's record as governor of Texas, they would find the same corrupt acts he has done as president - selling out public resources cheap to corporations, making the right of corporations to poison air and water more important than the right of children to breath and drink it, and kissing the ass of bigots, gay-haters and religous fascists. Of course, our currently cowed press will never give you a look. Guess what! Somebody around here is gonna!

Let's look a George Bush, the Governor:


http://www.issues2000.org/George_W__Bush_Environment.htm


Here's an excerpt:

Bush’s environmental record in Texas is notably poor, and he has never suggested he cares. On his watch, the air in Houston has become so foul that the city has recently displaced Los Angeles as the city with the worst smog in America. Bush says he wants to:
Tackle the brownfield problem by replacing the “old system of mandate/regulate/litigate” with decentralized state-led efforts
Conserve wilderness areas by encouraging states and even private citizens to take up wildlife management, rather than leaving everything to the federal government
Tackle global warming, which he acknowledges may be a real threat. However, he pours scorn on the Kyoto Treaty on climate change (which Gore is proud of) and says he favors market-friendly alternatives instead.
Keep energy prices low, in part by encouraging further exploration on federal lands. He blamed the summer gasoline crisis on new laws mandating cleaner gas; precisely the sort of initiative Gore would love.
