Do you believe it, I'm a Bush supporter but have the utmost respect for JK for these reasons..
Bush takes responsibility and has every bit of trusted defense with this war.

Bush believes in less government, more local and citizen responsibility.

No child left behind under *his* administration. Need I say more?

But hey, I'll be fine with whomever wins the election. I have never ever blamed government for my wrongs, for my short comings or job losses and gains. And boy, have DH and I seen a lot - he has been fired, let go because of downsizing, been handed greater opportunities because of his resume and experience, seen some ups and downs with medical insurance. None of which I would ever blame on whatever the (current) administration was.

Voting for Bush b/c I feel he has:



  1. guts

  2. intelligence

  3. values

  4. intregity

  5. conviction

While I haven't agreed with every decision or am on the same page with him about every issue I agree with him more often than not.


I think many positive things have come about in his 4 yrs and I am ready for "more of the same".


Like Carrie these are not my only reasons - but's it's a start!

- JK has stated many times that he will add more active duty troops (40,000) in areas other than Iraq.
- He's a thinker. He sees multiple sides of the issues and makes an informed choice from there.
- He is committed to strengthening our alliances. He sees the real value in bringing other world powers to play in Iraq.
- He's demonstrated palpable concern over the proliferation of nuclear weapons and our contribution to it.
- He's an upright man with years of public service.
- His military experience gives him first hand knowledge of what it is like to be in war.
- He is committed to protecting our environment
- He is truly concerned with the welfare of our children as evidence by his commitment to have every child insured.
- I like his stong, outspoken, unpolished, in-your-face wife.

John Kerry understands that foreign policy and especially diplomacy is a nuanced thing --- not everything is black and white and not everything can be boiled down to a slogan. This allows him more credibility at the international table and more credibility when he goes on TV and comes into my living room to explain when and where other US service men and women are going to fight and die. I want to believe when my President sends troops in harm's way, he knows that he has tried every other measure available to him - EVERY ONE - including those compromises and cooperations that - in sound bite world - can be twisted to be weak - but in the long run are in the best interests of the country.

Oh, and I like his outspoken, opinionated wife too --- we're all outspoken and opinionated --- no one's judging our husband's fitness for their jobs based on our posts here, right?
