The way Republicans are exploiting 9-11 to get their man re-elected is absolutely shameful. Combine this exploitation with their support for the "Swift-boat-liars-against-Kerry" advertising campaign, and it's clear the Republicans have sunk to a new low point in American politics.

Do we also need to mention Bush flip-flopping after endlessly giving that nickname to John Kerry....
...First he says the war on terror can't be won, and now he says that it can be won. WTF!

And how about Mr. Cheney who stood by Dumbya's side on his quest to put a constitutional ban on gay marriage, and now that he remembers that he has a daughter (who is openly gay, for those of you who might not know) now he's reconsidering his positon.

These republicans make me sick to the stomach.

For the Massachusetts senator's critics, who include three of the five Swift boat skippers who were present that day, the incident demonstrates why Kerry does not deserve to be commander in chief. They accuse him of cowardice, hogging the limelight and lying. Far from displaying coolness under fire, they say, Kerry was never fired upon and fled the scene at the moment of maximum danger.

Evidently, Kerry did not run fast enough. "He got some frags and pieces of rice in his rear end," Rassmann said with a laugh. "It was more embarrassing than painful." At the time, the incident did not seem significant, and Kerry did not mention it to anyone when he got back on the boat. An unsigned "personnel casualty report," however, erroneously implies that Kerry suffered "shrapnel wounds in his left buttocks" later in the day, following the mine explosion incident, when he also received "contusions to his right forearm."
Anti-Kerry veterans have accused Kerry of conflating the two injuries to strengthen his case for a Bronze Star and Purple Heart.

At first, nobody noticed what had happened to Rassmann. But then Medeiros, who was standing at the stern, saw him bobbing up and down in the water and shouted, "Man overboard." Around this time, crew members said, Kerry decided to go back to help the crippled 3 boat. It is unclear how far down the river Kerry's boat was when he turned around. It could have been anywhere from a few hundred yards to a mile.

In a Senate floor speech on March 27, 1986, Mr. Kerry said:
"Mr. President, I remember Christmas of 1968 sitting on a gunboat in Cambodia. I remember what it was like to be shot at by Vietnamese and Khmer Rouge and Cambodians, and have the president of the United States telling the American people that I was not there; the troops were not in Cambodia ... I have that memory which is seared -- seared -- in me."
Mr. Kerry was suggesting he was ordered into Cambodia illegally by the Nixon administration. He repeated the story in a Boston Herald interview, saying: "The absurdity of almost being killed by our own allies in a country in which President Nixon claimed there were no American troops was very real."
But Nixon was not yet president in December 1968. Moreover, "Unfit For Command" flatly states "all of the living commanders in Kerry's chain of command deny that Kerry was ever ordered to Cambodia," and three of the five crewmen on his boat "deny that they or their boat were ever in Cambodia." Finally, if this was seared into Kerry's memory, why was there no mention of it in Douglas Brinkley's book about Mr. Kerry's exploits, "Tour of Duty"?
Kerry campaign officials have since backtracked on his oft-told story. "He has since corrected the record to say it was someplace on a river near Cambodia. ... My understanding is that he is not certain about that date," Kerry adviser Jeh Johnson said in a Fox News interview on Aug. 11.
Mr. Kerry has a reputation for embellishing or making up stories, according to the Boston Globe, which has closely tracked his career. For years he happily promoted what he suggested were his Irish roots until the Globe found out his Central European ancestors were Jewish.
He also has a troubling habit of saying one thing, then turning around and taking a very different position to fit the political circumstances when it suits him.
The most recent example of this last week, when he told the Veterans of Foreign Wars he opposed Mr. Bush's plan to withdraw U.S. forces from Europe and South Korea and claimed it would endanger our national security. But he took the exact opposite position on Aug. 1 in a TV interview in which he said he welcomed the ide

But wasn't it determined that Kerry's Grandfather, or whoever it was that immigrated here, had hidden his true roots? The story I heard was that the Kerry family did not know they came from Central Europe (Czech Republic maybe?) until the Globe discovered this.

Bullshit. Dick Cheney was hiding under his bed during the Vietnam war and frat boy Dubya used his daddy's influence to get a safe job in the National Guard. If Kerry had shit himself under fire and then run off into the jungle HE WOULD STILL be a braver and more honorable man than either Bush or Chaney. Republicans, like their President, have sunk to a new low...

*Sigh*. This is getting quite tiring. Democrats are no freaking trophy winners either. I can see why Zell Miller got pissed at his own party. Damn good speech I might say so myself. He was bein' "real". There's nothing like raw emotion as I say. Anyway, I hope you peeps realize that you're crucifying the wrong person. It's just unjust anger because Bush is not a snobby aristocrat and is too old-fashioned for this screwed up world. He's too retro. He's the kind of guy who's 100 percent certain in a world where it's okay to be 60 percent certain and still dare not take action.

I find it amazing a person who actaully tries to help out the world gets jeered at. Yet a man like Ted Kennedy who drowned a girl, is worshiped like a freaking god. That's just amazing. It goes to show you, if you're not a snobby New England aristocrat, people think you're evil. Quite ironic I must say for this day and age.

It's sad these days. The only way I can tell the smart people from the dumb ones is that the smart people like Bush. It's just so rediculous for the reasons why these people hate Bush. They hate him like he killed their dog. It goes to show you how shallow these people really are. Some people are just plain stupid player haters. *chuckles*

If I insulted anyone for speaking the truth, I'm not going to apologize. You have to hear it once in a while. Anyway, keep safe my still-not-enlightened peeps.

I was writing fast. Anyway, I spelled some things wrong on purpose as you can see by this mark " ' ". You should understand what I meant by peoples' warped views but, as I can see, you don't. Don't worry though, you can always change your mind. Think whatever you want. Each to his/her own. Sleep tight little peep. :-)

FairyQueen, most of what you say is so incredibly simplistic and innacurate that it's below the radar of what I feel is worth replying to. It would be "rediculous" of you to mistake that for anything else. So until you actually say something accurate or interesting I don't think I'll be changing my mind any time soon about Dick "Five Deferments" Chaney or George "is the war over yet?" Bush.

Last paragraph-
Mr. Kerry’s grandfather was Fritz Kohn, an ethnic German Jew born in Horni Benesov, a former mining town near the Polish border. A brewer in a land known for its fine beers, Khon moved to America at the turn of the last century, converted to Catholicism, and changed his name to Frederick Kerry. Mr. Kerry was unaware of his grandfather’s roots until a genealogist dug up the news last summer.

Well stop the press! A Boston politician courting the Oirish vote! Welcome to the weird and wacky world of politics Bully!

Seriously, even if we accept your worst possible interpretation of events, do you consider this a greater "crime" than Dubya promising amnesty to 7 million illegal immigrants solely so he can get the Hispanic vote? Whatever happened to traditional Republican politics?

Or do you consider Dick Chaney as qualified or competent to criticise John Kerry bearing in mind Chaney applied for five deferments to avoid fighting in Vietnam and has said he had "other priorities" than fighting for his country?

Or didn't you feel even the slightest bit uneasy as you watched the Republican Convention develop into a 9-11 exploitation-fest? This is about as low as politics gets chum.

If Kerry was a less unqualified candidate than Bush, I would vote for him. Unfortunately he is not. I shudder to think what will happen to the economy recovery and to Iraq if Kerry were elected and he exercised his pseudo-decisive leadership. Why does he not talk about his 19 years as a senator? Because he has nothing to talk about.

I notice you side-stepped the Vietnam/Bush-Chaney stuff above, as well as the exploitation of 9-11 for Republican political gain. But I suppose there's no way really to defend such gutter politics.

"If Kerry was a less unqualified candidate than Bush, I would vote for him"

I wish I could believe that. But Republicans have painted every recent democratic presidential candidate as an incompetent Trotskyite while entirely failing to deal with the real incompetence, flip-flopping, criminal behavior and lies of their own candidates. Despite 9-11 happening on "Bush's watch" (remember Reagan admitting that?) Dubya based his entire presidency on the symbolic and political fallout of the attacks. He then failed to capture Osama bin Laden. The attacks happened while Bush was president and 3 years later the man who is supposedly behind 9-11 is still running around. We didn't hear too much about that at the RNC, for obvious reasons. When Bush said OBL was wanted "dead or alive" he sounded tough, but as Kerry says, he's all hat and no horse.

That's a post-9-11 100% failure rate in my book. And yet, somehow, for some reasons still unexplained, Kerry is more unqualified than Dubya. Hmm...

Dear god.*sigh* There's no exploitation of 9/11. I should be the one speaking because I live 30 minutes from the place. That's what happened during the Bush administration. When he brings it up, it shows his leadership during a time of tragedy. Exploiting my ass. Give me a break. We were attacked by sickos and Bush got those terrorists in their two precious balls, Afghanistan and Iraq. You people don't realize how democracy is important for the middle east. Terrorists can't spread their message through a place that doesn't want them there.

But, there's no use in me arguing with you people. But, ah yes. You're going to bring up how I am arguing with you now. It's because it good to have a daily dose of sense in life.

Please, as suggested before, look through Kerry's senate record. This guy can't make up his mind for his life. Imagine what it's like to go shopping with this guy!

I don't give a crap about his war record. To me, a war record means nothing to me if you're running for president. If you served in a war or the army, all it means is that you can take orders and follow directions. THAT'S IT. Unless you were a commanding general that served in 10 wars.But, other than that, it shouldn' matter. It doesn't mean that person is dumber or smarter than the person next to them.

Cheerio my little peeps and check to make sure I didn't make any spelling mistakes! :-) Just joking with ya'. Try to enjoy life as much as you can.

Um....the twin towers, U.N embassies and the U.S.S Cole were bombed during the Clinton adminisration also. Clinton did hardly anything but, he was about to go to war with Iraq. But, I guess people forget about that kind of stuff. Study history, people.

Dear peep Fairy Queen

Before calling anyone stupid, you must do two things...

1. Check your spelling.
2. Check your facts

Anyways, it seems to me like you've fallen victim of the Republican manipulation by saying things like... anyone who won't vote for Bush is an idiot, a traitor, an anti-American, and even a terrorist supporter.

In my book, neither Bush or Kerry are qualified to be presidents, but it's clear to me that we need a new administration that does things right. Bush can brag all he wants that we were better today than 4 years ago, but that's a complete lie. Just take a look at the enemployement rates of the past 10 years...

http://www.ded.mo.gov/business/researchandplanning/indicators/unemp/current-average.shtml

Notice how Clinton left us with a 3.4% unemployemnt rate, and to update this chart unemployment went down from 5.6% last year to 5.4% on a recent official number given today. An improvement that can barely be noticed, but according to economy experts, not the expected to say it's a significant improvement.

Bush thinks that he can buy his presidency with tax cuts, but the truth is that not raising taxes during a time of war will lead to an economic deficit in the upcoming years. The right thing to do would be raising taxes for the wealthy class, but of course since the rich are Bush best pals, how can he raise taxes then?

http://costofwar.com/

Now let's talk about the terrorism issue. When was the last time that Bush mentioned Osama Bin Laden? Not in a long time, right? Why the vendetta against Saddam Hussein when Bin Laden was the one who killed 3.000 Americans on 9/11? Bin Laden is probably laughing his ass off right now at how stupid is Bush, while planning his next terrorist attack. I think it's completely hypocritical of conservatives to blame Clinton for 9/11, when it was Bush the one who ignored all those memos where he was informed of possible terrorist attacks involving hijacked planes.
Saddam Hussein was never a significant threat to America, but rather a theat to his own people.
Believe me, if since the beginning Bush decided to invade Iraq because of his crimes against Iraqi citizens, then I'd have some respect for him. The excuse of course were the WMD and the Al-Qaeda links, which to this day is more than clear that they never existed. For those who believe that this war has nothing to do with oil, then tell me what the hell is Halliburton supossed to be doing there? How could anyone vote for someone who lies and manipulates his country in this kind of way. Of course, Republicans will tell you that lying about a blow job is far worse than lying about a cause to go to war that has caused the death of more than 10.000 Iraqis, and nearly 1.000 American soldiers.

Once again, stop calling people stupid... by saying that, it makes you look even more stupid than you are already.
