Hey, pdq and claymore, you know why we detest this lying, phoney, incompetent, drunken asshole. He pulled a "Pearl harbor" on a country that had nothing to do with 911, now he is seeing to it that only his contributors get the "sweetheart" deals to rebuild Iraq. He started with a trillion dollar surplus, spent it and billions more, spent all the goodwill we got from the rest of the world with his arrogance, signed a bill that allows the FBI to arrest and detain without council anyone they want to call a terrorist, etc etc etc.
Now, what should we admire about this loser who never succeeded at anything in his life? And, dont bring up Clinton or any other past loser, this is not about them, they did not declare war on 1/3 of the worlds population without cause. You have the floor.

Kendall, your hatred for Republicans goes back forty years. It has little to do with President George W. Bush. Everytime a new Republican comes along you will hate him /her also. There is nothing a person can do to change your mind, so why waste the time and effort. The fact that you see Clinton as a "loser" is nice to know. The Dems had a huge majority in the federal house and senate, also a significant majority of governors. Clinton's daily lying and games playing has turned off most Americans. He is still in firm control of your party and spent two weeks directing the California assault on Arnold Schwarznegger. Another ugly, mean and divisive campaign to destroy an honest man. The real answer to the posted question is "Clinton is back".

the only "direct question" in the post directed to pdq was this...

Now, what should we admire about this loser (GW Bush) who never succeeded at anything in his life?

i fail to see how you responded to that question as you maintain. you did what most bush apologists do around here which is talk about bill clinton, who has not been president for some time now, or act as if all republicans have been attacked and feign outrage that anyone would do such a nasty thing (as if repubs didn't commit the worst "bashing" in recent memory during their phony impeachment charade). so will any of the bushites answer the direct question about the admirable qualities of GWB and his policies without comparisons to past officeholders? pdq? dougr? claymore? anybody?

Subject: RE: BS: Whats worse than Bush in 2004
From: kendall

pdq, the fact that you like my music says a lot about you!
Now, let me set the record straight. I do not, and never have hated all republicans. I disagree with their party policies that's all.
As for my own history, I was a Barry Goldwater republican in the 60's. I almost became a John Bircher. I voted for Nixon...TWICE! I cast my very first vote for Eisenhower. I voted for George Bush the first when he ran against Reagan in the primary.
Slowly, I began to wake up and resent tax cuts for the rich, cuts in social programs, butchering veterans benefits to pay for those tax cuts. Bush has to pay back his contributors, and he is doing it on the backs of the poor, a tack the republicans are very good at.
I don't hate George Bush, I don't hate anyone, but I do detest his politics, and I resent the fact that with the help of Jeb, Katherine Harris and the supreme court, he was able to get appointed president. He now has gotten us into one hell of a mess, and he is too damned arrogant to get us out of it.
Have you noticed the lack of news coverage on the coffins and body bags coming home? He has forbidden the media to show this, because, he learned one thing from Viet Nam, that kind of coverage was what turned Americans off the war. I see him as an incompetent nincompoop, but, Cheney is dangerous, and Ashcroft is a power hungry meglomaniac.
Colin Powell, I like.

Thanks Kendall, but I went the other way. I spent 32 years as a registered Democrat and changed to Republican in May 2000 in order to vote for McCain. The Democrat Party lost its soul during the Clinton years. Sorry, just a fact, and they have no one to blame but themselves. I see no justification for the daily Bush hating and feel as many do, including jimmyt, that enough is enough. Again, my statements are not aimed at any one person.

Subject: RE: BS: Whats worse than Bush in 2004
From: Don Firth

It strikes me as the height of hypocrisy when those of the right wing persuasion accuse people who are critical of George W. Bush and his policies of some kind of spontaneous, irrational hatred when a few years back they set up a vicious campaign of character assassination against the Clintons even before they set foot in Washington, D. C. (years before Bill had the bad judgment to leave his fly unzipped). This is a prime example of spontaneous and irrational loathing groping around to find a rationale for its existence. And even though Clinton is out now, it still goes on (could it be because even though Bill is politically dead, Hilary is still very much alive?). It makes a very convenient diversion to be able to point to Clinton and try to move the argument over there when faced with criticism of Bush, his string of lies, his gutting of the economy for the benefit of his friends, and his initiating a war that is illegal, ill-advised, and (as is beginning to become evident), in the long run, unwinnable.

It is possible to intensely dislike and disagree with someone's policies and behavior without hating, or even disliking, him personally. I understand the Bush is really quite an affable fellow. He was a real party animal at Yale and he's supposed to be lots of fun at a barbeque. I am very much in favor of sending him back to Crawford, Texas, tying an apron on him, handing him a spatula, and putting him in charge of the steaks. Right after he steps down in January of 2005.

What could be worse than a second Bush term? Maybe another dinosaur-killer asteroid.

The United States has been transmorgrified from a democracy into a corporate fun club. We have the best government money can buy and it seems to be getting worse and worse. There is not even a semblance of Republican politicians trying to do what is best for the people they are supposed to serve. The GOP only has to convince the big money corporations that they will do their bidding in order to obtain enough money to beat whoever might be running against him. It is disgusting and I see no solution in the near future.

What's worse than Bush in 2004? Not a thing.

Well, I certainly ain't no Clintonite. He was a oderate to right Repubocrat and had some bad habits involvin' the womenz. He pushed thru a very anit-human welfare reform package. He backed down from the NRA. Like I said a good moderate to right Republican...

And then along came Bush. Whew! You folks that support this guy need to read "Old Nazis, the New Right and the Republican Party" by Russ Ballant! This is getting way beyond just partisan politics and the rival fraternity mindset between the Dems and Repubs. This is some serious business as social programs that we all have lives with all of our lives are targeted to be scrapped and where if yer not part of the Christain Right (which would know Christ from a hubcap) then you are suspect...

Yeah, you Bushites can think yer supporting some ideology but what you are really supporting is the end of democracy. It satrted quite nicely in Florida where Jeb said, "Don't worry, I'll get the job done" and continues today with redistricting in Texas... These folks are out to steal America and, as a Green Party person myself, must admit, they're doing exactly what they have had planned for over 50 years...

Although the goal is to make the vote uncheckable it is not the perfect crime. The voting machine scandles will probably let America live a lie for decades.

I agree with Bobert. What is at stake is not only democracy in the US but also choice of government around the world. The game plan as I see it is a New World Order. I perceive it to be theft of the whole damned planet--its resources and all the people on it. Multi-nationals and governments are beginning to sleep together (as they often did before), but now there is almost no attempt to hide it. Iraq don't mean squat in the grand scheme of things (I realize it means lots to the Iraqi people), but its geographical location certainly provides a strategic locale for any parties interested in settlin' down the Middle East and being where the resources of the Middle East are. In short, it ain't just about the USA; rather, it's really about all of us. We are being enslaved, and we ain't doin' all that much about it.

GUEST,pdc:

Thanks for the direction. There is a 'thing' you might care to look into. Have you ever encountered an organization known as MJ 12 (Majestic 12)? You can google them. Interesting and very scary stuff--to paranoids like me. But, Kissinger was right: even paranoids have enemies. (Curious, is pdc your usual name here? If you choose not to say, that's OK.) The people who used to espouse conspiracy theories were closer to the truth than most of us care to admit. Scares me, anyway. Someone on this site said Bush is the figurehead. True. The man is too clumsy to be the real leader. And then, isn't that a diabolical turn of events. The American Executive isn't really in charge. But, he is surrounded by some brilliant people who guide his thoughts. The one that worries me most is Wolfowitz. He is a no-shit genius, and he is, in my opinion, a major player in the NWO plan. And, last, in my opinion the plan IS world domination and enslavement. (I see I'm back to my cheery ol' self, what?)

It doesn't make much sense for me to try to add anything here.
But I feel I must speak out. I don't think it's about the]
person who I don't really know or care to much. It's about the policies as Kendall has said.

As to the cabinet of the Bush Administration, Al Franken has
called them "Chickenhawks". That is, it's easier to make a war policy than to participate in it. It's the old cliche of "Let's fight, I'll hold your coat." War is a terrible, horrible and
awful thing and it doesn't offer any solutions to how people can live together in peace and justice. There are those who will get rich from war because that's justified in their minds. I'm thinking
of the infamous "Golden Triangle" of the Pentagon and the private corporate sector. This would include the Bush Administration's current cabinet. These men are dangerous for the country because
they are immoral. They are making money from the deaths of
innocent Iraqi women and children. They are making sure that
the working people of this country will not see the benefits
of their labor. They can count themselves amoung the wealthy
in the "class war". This "war" was created by the Bush Administration and Reagan and Bush Senior. There are people who
are working at manual labor jobs who are trapped in them because there are no places to retrain since money hasn't been allocated for them to do so. The destruction of the welfare system has meant that
poor hardworking Americans don't have decent paying jobs and can't
raise their kids on the money they make and the time they can
spend with their families is limited since they work long, hard hours for little money....a disgraceful devaluing on the minimum
wage in the "richest country in the world."


The public school system is being gutted by Bush and
his cronies. Only the wealthy will be able to receive a decent
education. This is anti-American. Anti-democratic. If this happens, then bin Laden and Saddam have beaten us.

We need a president who is responsive to the needs of Americans
and not a spokesperson for Haliburton, Harken, Enron, and the
gutting of the Texas and American educational system.

A word about Libertarians. We need a strong, moral federal government to protect us against the selfish, self-serving
Libertarian movement who would cut off the necessary funding
for deserving African-Americans, Hispanic and poor isolated
others in the citified ghettos of the US. Their representative
on talk radio spews his vitriol daily. Neil Boortz. A bully who
allows no contradictions to his madness. If people don't want to
pay taxes for educating those who don't have a chance in this
country, or helping them find decent employment, then bin Laden
and Saddam and Bush have won.

End of rant but I'm a folkie who has strong feelings about this
kind of thing and probably should keep my mouth shut but it's just
too painful not to.

Actually, Red, that piece of doggerel has been floating around the internet claiming to be by Shakespeare for years now, and was not written by Cher. If she got suckered by it, as many were, it is because they do not know what real Shakespeare sounds like. I knew the thing was a phony the first time I read it. Here is the Snopes analysis debunking it. It is ripe with clangers which old Bill would not have allowed into his parchments.

Slight drift here:

"Libertarian" can mean a lot of very different things.

Sometimes it's a way of saying Anarchist without frightening the horses - nowadays I suppose it's best vto say left-libertarian when you mean that.

Or it can mean nutty survivalists living out in the woods with machine guns who hate the givernment, but also hate just about everone else as well.

Or it can mean well-off guys who want the law to keep out of their way, but are happy to see it brought into play to protect them against tother people.

........

"Whats worse than Bush in 2004?" - well, whatever happens (short of another pretzel or similar occurrence) you/we've got him for the whole of 2004 and into 2005. The answer is surely: "Bush, any time after January 2005"

I see in the headlines this morning that Bush is trying to pass a FOUR HUNDRED BILLION DOLLAR defense bill.

Anyone out there think this is merely to cover what has already been spent in Iraq?

My other thought:

Only nukes cost this much.

"Last vote" indeed. If only they'd actually been elected that would be ironic.

Meanwhile our schools are crumbling, our economy is in the toilet, our environment is a cesspool, our privacy is a joke and reproductive rights are soon to be a thing of the past. I think there are better places to spend that money.

Does anyone know something good about Bush? Even his supporters seem unable to say anything other than "He isn't Clinton". Well, Duh- I know he isn't Clinton. Clinton left us with a budget surplus that Bush went throught like it was melted butter. Granted, Clinton had his personal problems, but apparently he did was a better president with his pants off than Bush is with his on.

Whats worse is a voting system that does not insure a democratically elected president.

All of your talk about ousting Bush in the next election is, I fear, a moot point.

At this point, the best you can hope for is military mutiny combined with a general strike and a boycott by the civilian population.

Of course, its easier to talk about it than actually do something about it. The last thing anyone is willing to do is give up the luxuries they think they are entitled to.

Lets start with the question of whether you are better off now or 4 years ago.   Four years ago terrorists had declared war on the USA, (had attacked the USA at least 6 times) and yet the American people knew nothing about them.   Today we are completely aware of what is out there.   Were we better off in ingorant bliss or are we better off knowing the dangers?

Whats worse than Bush in 04

Another terrorist attack on the USA or anywhere else in the world
Terrorists getting WMD's and using them
Iran, Syria, North Korea, China, Sudan,
Abandoning Iraq and having terrorists gain control
Libya not declaring their WMD's and remaining a threat
The Pakistan scientist not declaring all the nuclear weapons he sold
China overthrowing Taiwan
Russias new weapon program
The United Nations oil for food program which stole billions
The United Nations in general
FRANCE   FRANCE   FRANCE FRANCE
The destruction of Israel and support of Yasser Arafat
George Soros
Moveon.org
Michael Moore, Al Franken, Barbra Streisand, Susan Sarandon, and Ossama Bin Laden (we can argue about the order)
Terry McAuluffe
Pat Buchanon
