..."our country is being torn apart and made weaker by the Dem's manic obsession to bring down our Commander in Chief""
That's what elections are about. Doesn't that FOOL understand that change of leadership brings and end to the reign of a Commander in Chief???
And when did an election make this country weaker??? That's what we are about. That idiot must have slept through the last half century if that's what he thinks about elections.
This guy is slated to retire in January. My reaction to that is "the tax money we spend to keep him in the lap of luxury for the rest of his life is one of the biggest wastes of money there ever was.
Someone should clue that DODO into the fact he was working in a Democracy.

Actually Chas, it wouldn't do well to tell him he's working in a democracy, cause it wouldn't be true.
In a true democracy every voter would vote on every issue that comes before the congress, in which case we wouldn't need a congress!
We actually have a republic form of government, we elect representatives and senators to vote for us. They are not required to vote the way we think, we are however expected to vote for a candidate that most agrees with our way of thinking.
Elections have made this country weaker alot of times. Just look at the last administration, he sure whacked them terrorists on his watch didn't he?
I'm gonna regret getting in on this, but somedays yer the bug and somedays yer the windshield.

Mr. Miller has been something of a moderate since I've seen him. Most of America are moderates, some a little left and others a little right of the middle. I think Mr. Miller is a little left, but closer to middle than the Democrat party "leadership."

For Mr. Miller to come out so strongly as he did against Mr. Kerry:

1) Took a lot of guts, because he lost a lot of future Democrat party support
2) Tells me that Mr. Kerry is even worse for the country than I had originally thought
3) Will hopefully cause *thinking* Americans near the middle to re-think any support they might have considered giving to Mr. Kerry...rather than blindly attacking Mr. Miller and his message.

The more I hear Mr. Kerry, the more I see all the worst qualities of Mr. Clinton. The country just barely survived his Presidency, we don't need another one like him.

Although an election might mean the politics of personal destruction to you, it certainly doesn't mean that to me. The Democrat party leadership has sunken to even lower levels than that attained by the Clintons. I think that an election should be a time where honorable people should present alternative programs to the electorate and then allow the electorate to decide which programs are better. That is no longer possible due to the vicious hatred that the Democrats have fostered concerning President Bush.

That "FOOL", by the way, never said anything about an election making the country weaker. The outrageous activity of the Democrat party is making our nation weaker by its attempt to destroy good people for the sake of their party's personal gain.

That "IDIOT" was a college professor teaching History before serving as Lieutenant Governor of Georgia for many years. He then served as Governor for two terms, and subsequently won a special election to fulfill the term of a senator from Georgia who died while in office. I imagine that he has a pretty good understanding of the operation of government.

That "DODO" has represented the State of Georgia well during his time in office. He could easily seek and win re-election to the Senate but he has chosen to voluntarily resign and resume his personal life after having served about five years in the Senate.

Now given a choice between your analysis of current envents, and Senator Miller's analysis of current events, I think I'll cast my vote for Zell.

liked his speech. About time we heard some plain straight talk about the division in our country., and what it is doing to it in time of a long dirty religious war. Better yet was his kicking of Chris Matthews a$$ in his interview afterwards. I am not beholden to any party, but that speech had fire in it.

I myself think had Mr Kerry been in charge on 9/11 he would have crapped his pants.I think President Bush handled it well.everybody says what he did wrong.Is there anyone who could have done better??I dont think so.He already has experience in terrorism why stop now.Kerry says insurance for everybody ...and how will that be?Not in this life time.I liked Millers speach.

Hey, it burns me up to hear these blood sucking politicians tear down this country just for the sake of politics.
If they had to work for a living instead of playing God, they might understand life a little better.
Yeah, no Prozac today. LOL
Chas, watching this election, up here in Disbelief.

Seems more Republicans worked for a living before politics than Democrats- they know they can live outside of politics/lobbying/legal service jobs better than political addicted Dems? RN

Presenting items from 50 documents carefully selected from what it reported were 14 boxes of related government papers 12 feet high, the Times confirmed from the FBI and other witnesses that Kerry had resigned from the VVAW leadership in November 1971 at a Kansas City board meeting to run for Congress. For years Kerry claimed that he had resigned after a July 1971 meeting in St. Louis and had not been present for the Kansas City meeting that was moved from venue to venue to try to avoid FBI surveillance of the group's most secret plans.
The reason official confirmation that he did not leave the group until after the Kansas City meeting is important, say specialists on radical activities during the Vietnam era, is that the FBI documents confirm earlier reports by those present that Kerry participated in a closed-door discussion of a proposal to assassinate seven U.S. senators who were special targets of Hanoi, with whose agents selected leaders of VVAW had been meeting. The Los Angeles Times made no mention of this part of the story, broken 10 days earlier in the New York Sun by founding New York Times books editor Tom Lipscomb and since spiked by editors coast to coast. The early articles by Lipscomb may be reviewed at (registration required), and the astonishing Times article without the contextual importance of the FBI confirmation that Kerry took part in the formal discussion of a plan to murder the leading senators at (free registration required). Kerry reportedly voted against the killings but did not leave the meeting and call a cop. Until the FBI surveillance report surfaced to put him in the middle of the assassination discussion, Kerry claimed to have resigned before the meeting at which VVAW discussed the murder plan.

After Kerry left the board of VVAW, with which he had made his national reputation, the FBI ceased surveillance of his activities according to a bureau memo in early 1972.

To its credit, NBC News reported on the evening of March 22 a controversy concerning Kerry's presence at a closed VVAW meeting where the assassination of the senators was discussed and concluded that records show Kerry was indeed present at that meeting.

Hi Chas, Aint' reasonable discourse grand. I think so.I will agree with you when you say "Hey, it burns me up to hear these blood sucking politicians tear down this country just for the sake of politics ". But I gotta' tell you the only place I hear that we, as a nation are arrogant, and deserve what we get is from the "united nations" and their liberal minded minions

Ennis    Posted 09-02-2004 at 19:26:09       [Reply]  [No Email]
Ya know, I really fear Kerry getting elected. I agree with you on the tearing apart of my country and I don't believe in mud slinging but if Kerry would come clean about his medals then maybe we could get back to politics and the election. He threw them away and no amount of denial can change that fact. He called great solders "Baby Killers" and nothing can change that fact.
I really don't understand his reluctance to stand up for what he says he believes in.

A lot of things he has voted on in the past do not reflect what he is saying today and that leads me to believe he is just taking the opposing view and arguments no matter if they are good for my country or not. Just opposing because he is on the Democratic ticket and he will disagree, NOW, with all Republician ideals.
This my friend, is not what I am willing to accept in a person as my leader.

We are not a democracy, we are a republic. Thankfully.

If you have REAL PLAYER and a lot of time.You can hear Kerry .He may forget what he said before but today they have recoders that do not forget.

Brit Hume was playing something he said a few years ago regarding Admiral Borda, the CNO who commited suicide in disgrace over some ribbons. Very interesting in light of today's news stories and the weight that he puts on his own medals as far as qualifying him as a leader of this country.
Kerry is his own worst enemy. Maybe he thinks we're all stupid and will forget what he said and did in the past.
Come to think of it, there ain't no "maybe" about it.

Here is his site.If you notice the first picture on this site sure looks like mr Kery giving the commie fist salute. This is a signal to the left in the know what Mr Kerry is really up to.No matter what he says to the general public he is saying he is far left to the far left with this signal.Very unAmerican in my view.
