Bush is Campaigning for Kerry!

Today I heard G.W. say, "In a war on terror, there is no place for confusion." I can't believe he's finally admitted it's time to hang it up!

Kerry is the confusion. He doesn't know if he is for or against the war. He has said plenty of times how he would have done the same thing with or without WMDs. Then he turns around and calls it the wrong war at the wrong time.

Bush has been the only president to combat terror which has been a threat to this country since at least 1993 with the first WTC bombing.

I disagree with your interpretation of decontextualized comments, but somehow it just reminded of one of my favorite Bush quotes about Iraq: It was the right war for the American people." I imagine him back at the ranch poring over a menu of countries worth invading, mumbling, "Which one? Tasty choices. Which...?"

It also occurs to me that the likelyhood is that anyone who lurks or posts here is probably very recalcitrantly entrenched in a particular political ideology. It's evident that you are and so am I. So it's either the choir or the firing squad out there...

ROTFL at that statement. It's EXACTLY what I was thinking on the way home today.

I find it interesting that we think anyone who disagrees with us is either ill-informed, misguided or gullible. No one (and I'm including myself here) can understand how anyone can see the same information as they do and draw different conclusions.

Personally, I think the choir/firing squad situation is all over the country the board is just a reflection of that.

Isn't that so true?

It is rather nice to see people so passionate about politics for a change.

The passion *is* invigarating! I worry though, that sometimes we're "radiating more heat than light" (thank you Getty Lee!). It's great that political discussion is opening up, but what concerns me about the robust nature of the current democratic (little "d") debate is that much of it seems to be motivate by "us and them" battlecries... Kind of like Monday Night Football. Rather than being reflective, introspective and truly deliberating issues and reailty, people are talking in a mobish, association-hungry fashion that seems so oversimplified. Maybe it's an election year thing I didn't notice the last time(s) around because I was still in my 20s...LOL!
