I didn't make it!
Hear hear, @Preacher, Bite Me and everyone else ;) I didn't want to make a slander crusade against Bush, I only want to make a statement that BOTH parties are throwing mud at eachother. Instead of building up their economy, improve healthcare and better the way of living for people without a job, they spend millions of money throwing mud at eachother. Now don't misunderstand me, but for a down-to-earth European bloke, the whole election thing looks a big circus to me.
As was said last night Cheney took Edwards out behind the outhouse and gave him a real good thumping. Edwards looked like a young uninformed schoolboy next to the polished experianced Cheney
@Paolo - of course it's a circus! :) Now at least we aren't like some asian countries where the political factions seem to routinely get into fist fights. :) @Dragon - are you happy now? When I loaded this page the add was for some Las Vegas casino junk. Hmmm, gambling adds keyworded to a presidential election debate. What does that say about our political process? :lol:
Ooo the OPiuM club.... Gotta pack my bags! NOT! Yeah, I live in Ohio. 30 miles (ish) from case western university where the debate was last night. I KNOW it IS a circus!!!!! In a single commecial break at prime time, LITERALLY 4 out of 5 commercials are John Kerry ads....and that is not a one time thing. It happens over and over. And now they are pulling out the vote democrat and not for the republican "white boys". YES they are running ads insinuating that George Bush and his "white boys" deliberately organized a massive suppression of the black vote in order to be elected. If these "white boys" hadn't been able to trick all the minorities into not voting or scared them away from the voting places, Bush would never be in office. The Kerry ticket has always been monocrhome at the upper levels. If you remember back in may they said "Oh, wait! We only have two blacks and one ispanic anywhere on our staff. We better do something about it." I don't remember seeing any change even though they decided it was a strategic must! http://www.washingtontimes.com/national/20040504-110932-5540r.htm quotes Gore's campaign manager: "The last thing the Democratic Party needs in 2004 is to repeat the failures of its most recent past on matters of race and inclusion," Miss Brazile wrote in this week's edition of Roll Call, the Capitol Hill newspaper. "If the past is indeed prologue, this message has been lost on Sen. John Kerry's campaign, which has failed to understand how to navigate one of the most important issues in American politics: race relations and diversity." Meanwhile Bush's staff includes minorities at top policy and strategy-setting levels and on down. Bush has always surrounded himself with diversity both socially and idealogically. That's why you hear stories about how there are disagreements about policy. Of course there are. A good leader isn't surrounded only by "yes" men but by men and women who can provide many points of view allowing that leader to make informed decisions. I may be a bit testy this morning but I'm tired of being hit in the head with this aluminum baseball bat of advertisements. Does anyone remember the Bob Hope skit where he opening a door to see into a room filled with white hooded people playing poker and smoking cigars and he turns and looks at the camera and says..."Shhhh! Democrats!" and shuts the door. While that no longer is a true picture, neither is the republican movement suppressing "the black vote" to win the election.

BITE_ME!!Mike Moore is a joke. Hes makes money with slander and lies.
If you go by that way of thinking, so is rush limbaugh.
Hehe! I knew Mihail couldn't keep himself out of this!
Please tell me Mihail, how many times have you personally listened to Rush Limbaugh, and from those how many times have you personally heard him lie? Then of course I would like an example from your personal experience. I can very easily come up with examples of lies that Mr. Moore has told in the name of politics, and would be glad to do so if you need proof.
But more importantly, why do those on the left go after Rush all the time? Has Bush quoted Rush in a speech? When was the last time something that Rush did was hailed by a major awards ceremony as the very best material that had been done all year? Never on both counts. Yet Moore gets amazing amounts of press and support and his material is used to support political rhetoric. Yep, Rush is popular, but you can hardly blame him for that.
well both rush and moore are the racical clowns on oposite sides of the fence.
well I heard that there was a presidential debate yesterday (of all the 3rd party canidates) but of cource it wasn't broadcast live, and if I didn't listen to public radio occasionally I wouldn't have even known that it had taken place. I supose I'll have to dig around online to hear/see who stands for what in the 3rd party groups. My vote is definately not going to the 2 big clowns.
Great Bush art LOl .......................... ps dont shoot the messanger k
Well this is just me but ive always felt voting for anyone in power be it a President or a Prime Minister or whatever it happens to be,is like choosing a condom.They all do relativly the same job,they share the same purpose,and no matter how much they stress how good they are,during thier stay i cant notice any difference.It comes down to a brand,label,name.How much they spent on advertising.How popular other people rave about them.In the long run (to me) I always feel the same....Screwed
please dont shoot the messanger ..joke guys :)
I am a senior citizen. [indent][color=black][color=black] [/color]During the Clinton Administration I had an extremely good and well paying job.
I took numerous vacations and had several vacation homes.
Since President Bush took office, I have watched my entire life change for the worse.
I lost my job.
I lost my two sons in that terrible Iraqi War.
I lost my homes.
I lost my health insurance.
As a matter of fact I lost virtually everything and became homeless.
Adding insult to injury, when the authorities found me living like an animal, instead of helping me, they arrested me.
I will do anything that Senator Kerry wants to insure that a Democrat is back in the White House come next year.
Bush has to go.
