Duh. This is a liberal- infested site. No one's gonna care. They'll just sit there and make excuses for his behavior, just like the conservatives did for Rush and for Bush.

Exactly What Did Kerry Do? I dont have a problem with him. He is more of a Patriot than those who Oppose him. Kerry has a Silver Star, A Bronze Star, and Three Purple Hearts. How many Does Bush have of Any.

SO WHAT? When you call the troops idiots, I don't care what kind of medals you threw at the Capitol. You need to apologize, just like Bush needs to apologize for some things.


And since you asked, he called the brave men and women serving in Iraq stupid. And don't tell me he didn't, you know better. I mean, just look at it. The guy's a senator. He has to be a good public speaker. He's not going to accidentally leave out that kind of thing in a speech. He'd know the effect if he did.


He just showed he's nothing more than an arrogant ass.

“But if we are successful in turning over Iraq to the Iraqis on June 30th, and if we can see a light at the end of the tunnel in July or August and start to think about bringing our troops home...”-- Senator Arlen Specter (R-PA), CNN, 3/21/04

Well, Arlen, it's been 2 1/2 years since you made that remark.....

Stay on topic.

"Soldiers are just cowards with their backs against the wall. The lowest IQ men in our society, those incapable of normal careers enlist. Their choice in life; prison or the military. Some will have to die in the support of our cause." - Ann Coulter - Intervention Magazine, 11/06/03

"U.S. soldiers who die in Iraq knew they would. Most of them couldn't get a decent job in the private sector anyway, so what does it matter? Someone has to die in a war, why not the poor" - Ann Coulter

Stay on topic.

It isn't that hard.

highschoolboy, don't you have homework to do?

plattecohighschooler

Nope, School was out today.


And don't call me "boy".

A 15 year old male is a boy. Live with it.

plattecohighschooler

How's about calling me by my screen name? Too long? PCHS works, too.

southerngirl

some can't stay on topic cause they only have one topic and that is hate all that is gop...i just got used to it pchs, sigh, its that one mindedness that you see all the time from some, I just skip through their posts...anyway, I think that we all knew how these numbers would come out here, it is definitely one sided most of time,

I walked and knocked today and I can tell you, I went by American Legion by invitation when I was done, the members there know what kerry said and they know they are mostly voting Talent, I had a great day campaigning.

Not Secret NOW!

Liberal Infested", eh punk?

Or "Ignorant Infested" with YOU here.

Undereducated Rich Kid. No WONDER you support Bush, you're JUST like him.

Go get stuck in Iraq you ignoramus SUV-driving entitlement child.

Proof That Bush Lies Every Day About Dems Lack Of Security Plan

If there's one thing you can count on right along with death and taxes, it's that every day between now and November 7 -- and probably multiple times a day -- George W. Bush will grab a microphone before a large crowd and lie about the lack of ideas coming from Democrats on national security.

Here's Bush just today in Missouri: "If you listen carefully to what the Democrats say about Iraq, you think about what they're saying about their plan for success, there isn't one. This is a major political party that has no plan for success in Iraq."

But unlike some of the half-truths and distortions that come out of the White House and the Republican National Committee, where the sheer slipperiness of them makes getting the truth out kind of a dicey proposition, this one is as easy and clear-cut as it can be.

It was just two months ago that Democrats rolled out the Real Security Act of 2006, a plan whose legislative description left no doubt that Democrats had a plan, saying that it was designed "to provide real national security, restore United States leadership, and implement tough and smart policies to win the war on terror."

"The Real Security Act of 2006 marks a major change from status quo Bush Republican policies that have left America less safe than it must be," said Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) in introducing the plan. "Unveiled against the backdrop of a new White House media offensive, the legislation spells out the tough and smart path to make America more secure and to deal more effectively with threats that confront America at home and abroad."

These days, you would never know that such a plan exists for two reasons. The first it that it was killed by the Senate GOP leadership on September 13, 2006 on a roll-call vote that went almost straight down party lines. The same Republicans who killed the Democratic plan now walk around saying the Democrats have no plan.

The second reason that the Democratic strategy is so hard to find is that the corporate media continues to let the no-plan nonsense go unchallenged because, I suppose, it would be too much like real work to read the 528-page piece of security legislation that the Democrats tried to pass.

The key points of the Real Security Act of 2006 include the following:


Begin a new era of sensibly dealing with the quagmire that is the U.S.'s occupation of Iraq. Democrats would begin redeployment of U.S. troops out of Iraq to face terrorist threats around the world, including the new countries hosting Al-Qaeda since the Iraq war began. It also provides for real Congressional oversight to avoid further big-money losses to crooked defense contractors, accustomed to no-bid contracts and a tolerance for fraud and abuse.

Refocus America on the real war on terror by making sure the U.S. continues to pursue Osama bin Laden and bring him to justice and increase levels of Special Operations forces to kill and capture the terrorists where they are and to better protect Americans at home.

Provide updated tools, consistent with true American values, so we can bring terrorists to justice, while also following the law and the Constitution and work to revise the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act as needed to ensure intelligence agencies have the tools needed to defeat the terrorists.

Implement all 41 recommendations of the 9/11 Commission, including providing adequate resources for first responders, distributing homeland security funding based on risk, improving intelligence oversight, bolstering Congressional oversight of homeland security, strengthening public diplomacy and improving tracking of nuclear weapons material.

Equip the intelligence community to fight against terrorists by passing the Intelligence authorization bill, giving the CIA the resources to conduct aggressive and effective intelligence gathering. For the first time in 28 years, the Republican-controlled Congress has failed to pass the bill providing these desperately-needed resources.

Invest additional money to secure America's ports, rails, roads, airports, chemical and nuclear plants and mass transit systems by improving and increasing screenings and increasing security of containers and radiation screenings.

The first time you've heard about this stuff? I thought so. But the facts and the Congressional Record don't lie.

You can get the entire text of the Real Security Act of 2006 here: http://democrats.senate.gov/pdfs/RealSecurityAct_2006.pdf -- but be warned, it's a 1.1 megabyte PDF file of ideas Democrats allegedly don't have -- and you can see the video of Harry Reid describing the plan here.

http://democrats.senate.gov/agenda/real_security/act_2006/video.cfm

So if you've always sensed that Bush, Cheney and the Republicans were lying about the Democratic stance on national security, here's your proof -- please spread it around.

Well, I don't know about ignorant, you're making everyone else on this thread look pretty enlightened with comments like that.

Anyone who has seen the Kerry Speech knows it was a joke about Bush. The Repubs are trying to twist this but it's not selling. People know Bush doesn't give a damn about us or the troops. John Kerry at least went and fought courageously for us and deserves that much Respect. The Republicans are getting desperate. Their only hope is to steal a few seats. Most are too far gone. They will get caught this election. I believe things are coming to a head in this country, that there will be a reckoning. If we don't resist the Authoritarian Rulers they will Dominate us, taking our Freedoms and leaving us homeless.

plattecohighschooler

I saw it and it didn't look like a joke.

southerngirl

any joke containing any reference to our soldiers that are putting their lives on the line is completely in poor taste. Whether you like the war or not, whether you like Bush or not, whether you like the GOP or not, our soldiers should not be used as tools to make a joke. Like the protestors that disrupt their funerals, it is an abomination. A family deserves private grief, and public support. However Kerry meant it, poor taste is poor taste.

John Evans

These Right Wingers Are Giving Up Their Own Rights and They Dont Even See It. What Kind of Idiot Would Go Along With This. Bush is Destroying The Constitution. He is Trying To Take Total Control of Our Nation. He Wants Us Attacked. That is His Key to The Kingdom. He wants Martial Law.

What Will It Take?

Army Times: "Time for Rumsfeld to go"

AP

An editorial scheduled to appear on Monday in Army Times, Air Force Times, Navy Times and Marine Corps Times, calls for the resignation of Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld.

somewhere in the middle

You got that right southernG.

Bush's "jokes" at the recent correspondent's dinner is an insult to all our military, their families, and Americans. But hey I guess it's ok... he is our "dear leader".

You mistakenly categorize hate from the left, (which your kind radio ayatollahs like to instill you with everyday), with outrage...

@southerngirl: What say you regarding Ann Coulter's remarks (quoted above, at 05:57 PM)?

Old Drum

Well, pchs, there are two reason why you may have come to that conclusion:(1) You are so blinded by your loyalty to Bush that you refuse to it that way, or (2) You really are stupid.


Here is the beginning of Tom Friedman's column in the NY Times today. I hope the Star runs it on Sunday.

George Bush, Dick Cheney and Don Rumsfeld think you're stupid. Yes, they do.

They think they can take a mangled quip about President Bush and Iraq by John Kerry — a man who is not even running for office but who, unlike Mr. Bush and Mr. Cheney, never ran away from combat service — and get you to vote against all Democrats in this election.

Every time you hear Mr. Bush or Mr. Cheney lash out against Mr. Kerry, I hope you will say to yourself, "They must think I'm stupid." Because they surely do.

They think that they can get you to overlook all of the Bush team's real and deadly insults to the U.S. military over the past six years by hyping and exaggerating Mr. Kerry's mangled gibe at the president.

****
Remember that the first Republican President said, "You can fool some of the people all of the time." PCHS, you last post is proof that Lincoln was right about that.

southerngirl

first of all I put no stock in Ann Coulter, she is not am elected official, you do not have to buy her books, and I do not like her nor listen to her...she is as insulting as lots of way off base authors on many subjects...secondly I have never wasted my time with her, rush limbaugh and I vomit when watching Katie Couric on the other side or CNN, so...I have no opinion on her insulting comments because I choose not to support her. I can be a republican and not like some conservatives just as liberals should try to openminded..If she said what was quoted then it was bad, however she is not a senator at this time, she is a person who if people quit quoting, listening to her, or buying her stuff would go away. Obviously someone reads her to quote her
