If the electorate is that gullible, we're in very sad shape. Of course, we're in sad shape with George W. Bush as our president.

Same-sex marriage should not be an issue. Iraq--yes! Same-sex marriage--no! President Bush is either bisexual or homosexual. Kitty Kelley asserted in her book that George W. Bush swings both ways.

Has George W. Bush sued Kitty Kelley? No! If I wasn't homosexual/bisexual, and someone was asserting that I was, I would be taking them to court. Why hasn't Bush sued Kitty Kelley? You tell me? It's not because he doesn't have the money. It's because her assertion was absolutely, positvely correct. She was right on the money. An aging male prostitute has slept at the White House numerous times. Why is this hooker sleeping at the White House? You tell me? Other people have asserted Bush's same-sex orientation. Lips was Bush's nickname in college.

Our country is being run by homophobic homosexuals. They play the homosexual card when they, themselves, are homosexual.

History tends to repeat itself. J. Edgar Hoover, McCarthy, and Roy Cohn were choir boys compared to the incompetent, unethical, morally-corrupt, and power-grabbing scoundrels running our country now.

George W. Bush should be the person apologizing.

Distraction by the Dems= Rush Limbaugh

I have seen enough to know. Pat Tillman was a rarity. Do you really think a lot of these over grown pigs that play sports today would take a time out to go get shot at in Iraq??? The military targets people who have no options...the demand for college grads in the military is slipping somewhat due to the privitazation of a lot of career fields.

I also have friends/people close to the family who now are dead or have come back wounded from iraq and afghanastan..I personally do not care how much education they have/had or if their parents were rich or poor they served and as a military wife for 10 years i hold that as one of the most selfless things to devote your life to. Because I know how hard it is to live a military lifestyle. And I know what it is like to pack up your husband's bags,keep them at the front door, and wonder if he will get a phone call at any moment that would take him 1000's of miles away. I know what it is to send your husband off to work and wonder if he is going to get hurt on the flightline or god forbid killed. It is not an easy life at all. It is a culture all in its own.

What I hate the most, what boils my blood, is when people say "well he is GOVERNEMNT ISSUE that is his job"...like it makes things any better, any easier.

What data? Data shows Kerry is wrong. Here is the Heritage Study data for you.

You are wrong and so is Kerry the military is not full of poor stupid kids. Their are plenty of smart educated people in the military and for him to say such a thing about our troops is irresponsible. There are many ways for poor kids to go to college in this country without joining the military. Can you get into an Ivy league school without money and modest grades no, but who can. Their are plenty of Grants out there for whoever wants them. You have to want to go.
Kerry was talking about BUSH, not the troops! Good God, some people can be beaten senseless with facts but still can't be knocked out

Bush isn't a draft dodger. He just got himself a plum spot in the Texas Air National Guard through Daddy's connections, then promptly just didn't show up. But at least he was snorting good coke while Kerry was in Vietnam.

And, tell me how Bush supports the troops. Is it by sending them into an unwinnable quagmire and keeping them there? Is it by sending them into an unwinnable quagmire without adequate armor and artillery?

Oh, that's right- he SAYS he supports the troops all the time. He supports the troops by manufacturing one slick slogan after another.

If dimissing me as a Bush hater is what makes you feel good, then have at it. And you're somewhat right, too- I don't like presidents who divide, foment hatred and discontent within his own country, start illegal wars, trample my Constitution and my rights, make me less safe, put us in record debt, and brag like he's actually doing something constructive when the fact is he's a colossal failure. I don't like colossal failures running my country.

I defy you to name something positive that he's accomplished during his time in office. I mean a real, tangible accomplishment as opposed to an opinion that he's "tough on terror" or something like that. Go ahead. I've got time.

She doesn't have anything against them as far as I can tell. She probably does have something against hypocrites, though.

We have a thriving economy thanks to the Bush tax cuts, we have the lowest unemployement rate, homeownership is at it highest ever, the dow is doing great.

Who said Bush didn't show for duty? Isn't that part of that whole phony document thing Dan Rather made up?

Why does Limbaugh get to be misquoted and we have to let this Kerry thing go? Kerry has a pattern of being anti-military. Who brings a video camera to VietNam to take pictures of himself and then shoots himself 3 times in a year to get purple hearts. This is his 4th.

I think John Kerry is an idiot. When I listen to him talk and his subject meanders from left to right and back again to just off-center...I wonder who ever thought this man could lead a nation let alone be a senator. He's an idiot. I'm a Democrat and I wouldn't vote for him period, regardless of who he was campaigning against. I can't stand two-faced-pardon-my-friends-Whitewater-coverup Hillary Clinton either. Personally, I'd love to watch a reality show where **** Cheney is stripped of his illegal gains through no-bid contracts extracted from Halliburton in Iraq, Bush, Rumsfeld, both Clintons (the slimy amoral husband and amoral ruthless wife) and Ted Kennedy in his obese disgustingness are deposited on a desert Pacific island with cameras watching their every move. I'd watch religiously and enjoy every minute of it. I'd love to see the majority of Americans raise the middle finger to both corrupted parties and go independent in such a way as to break the stranglehold on this nation by both incompetent parties. I'd like to see Americans insist on accountability to the people, adherence to the Constitution, fund-raising given spending caps and the sources having to be provided by public funding instead of private cash donations with all the strings that come with those. Aw shucks, I'm dreaming again...someone wake me up.

Ain't it grand?

While Pubbies are waiting for him to apologize, the rest of America is going "Hey? What ARE we doing in Iraq?"

Ya'll got trumped but you weren't even smart enough to realize it!

I can't imagine why anyone would want to align with the Republican party. Beyond crooks and pedophiles, what else are they offering? Closet homosexuals? Lower taxes? Is this as in "Bob Jones wants to offer you lower taxes and would like to take your sons to their next boy scout retreat?"

Bwwwwhahahahahahaha!!!!

You got a bunch of sick suckers representing you and you don't even know it. That's the "smarts" behind the Republican party.
I think most people are aware of the fact that Republicans have some issues, but seriously, look at the alternatives?!? That's why I voted for Bush...I've become much more open-minded recently, however, I basically disagree with much more about the Democratic party than Republican. Now 50 years ago, I probably would have voted for the Democrats...
