I knew Jackhart would weigh in on this, tending to disprove two things he wants us all to believe:
1. That he doesn’t take me “seriously.” (And why did you lie about that?)
2. That he is exactly what he says he isn’t… a Kerry supporter.
There is, of course, a third option, but that’s too horrific to contemplate. Now, on to more destruction:
Jackhart entertained us thusly:
guess that's why Bush just publicly condemned the ads and said Kerry served "admirably" and should be proud of his record...
To which I wisely and accurately responded:
What the president does or does not do changes Kerry’s level of hypocrisy not one wit. But then, you knew that, right?
The point of my initial post on this thread was to point out that Kerry has failed to do, and absolutely will NOT do, what he demands of the President.
Hopefully, when you read it THIS time, your reading comprehension will improve to the point that you understand the phrases: “The hypocrisy comes in when the little asswipe demands that the president condemn the ad. So.... when is Kerry going to condemn Soros and moveon.org?”
However, in response to your off-topic poser, I say thus:
The President is entitled to his opinion, as I am mine. In fact, I’ll even go so far to say that you are even entitled to yours, no matter how flawed it may be.
But as for me, I tend to side with Senator Dole's perspective on Senator Kerry. You don’t mind awfully, do you?
Jackhart then bizarrely posted:
is Bush being a "leftist shlock" too? If Bush is defending Kerry's record against the ads, does that make him a "little asswipe" as well?
Again, I’m hoping by now that you’ve schooled yourself enough to tell the difference between what I’ve written about, and what you’re talking about, because, of course, they’re not even vaguely related.
That said, the President is doing what a politician should do: staying above the fray. I note, for example, no condemnation on your part of Kerry’s utterly idiotic claim that the Bush Campaign is coordinating with SwiftVets, a total violation of federal campaign law.
Kerry’s cowardly actions in Vietnam are not the subject of this thread: his hypocrisy is. And, as I’ve already stated, the Presidents decision to “defend” Kerry’s war record does nothing to effect that…. Does it?
Jackhart then confirms his ignorance by telling us:
as far as the ads "kicking Kerry's balls in" and making "real inroads" they've been shown in all of 3 states, Wisconsin, Ohio and W. Virginia, so far and are not even being shown now.
To which I accurately respond by pointing out that:
The ads have not been in rotation anywhere but those three states. But EVERY news program has been playing them, and EVERY news program is talking about them and their effectiveness is self-evident to anyone who knows a damned thing about politics which you, obviously, do not: If the ads were NOT effective, then Kerry and his minions wouldn’t have uttered a sound about them!
I would have thought that an alleged double attendee to Republican National Conventions would have known enough about politics to at least have some vague understanding that candidates do not respond to negative ads when they’re having no effect. To do so is to do what Kerry obviously did NOT want to do, but is too damned dumb to avoid, and that is make this the number one political topic in the nation and make their book the number one best seller on Amazon.
But, I suppose, since you, allegedly, “don’t give a rat’s ass about politics,” maybe I’m giving you too much credit.
now that Bush has condemned the ads, they will likely disappear for good.
Nonsense, of course. The ads will continue, with more in the pipeline. Sheesh.
whatever are you to do 95?
Besides continuing to bust your chops, you mean?
your own candidate condemns the ad, will YOU? oh what a predicament this must be for you...now you'll have to remove that silly and obnoxious book cover from your signature.
No… since the ads are true. You like the book cover? Oh, sorry, it puts a boot up your boy’s ass…. I can see why it pisses you leftists off.
Senator Bob Dole, a vociferous critic of Kerry's over this very issue, said on CNN "I'd say right now Kerry has the edge. I'm looking at the Electoral College in the battleground states. And even though they didn't get a bounce in the convention, you know, people got to know John Kerry. I think most people liked what they saw. There's a little backlash now because of all the Vietnam thing. But he's probably ahead."
Was that before or after he said: “"three Purple Hearts and never bled that I know of. I mean, they're all superficial wounds."
Odd that Kerry’s so concerned about this, then, isn’t it… I mean, being “ahead” and all that. And, Mr. Dole would cheerfully tell you that, among veterans, this ad does precisely what I said it WOULD do.
See, jackhart, you need to understand… the SwiftVets are right in what they’re doing even if Bush loses. But, thanks for asking.
in any event, i think that was a standup thing for Bush to do. it will, i think, raise his standing among voters, but i don't think Bush did it just to get votes, i think he also did it because he felt it was the right thing to do. Bush also condemned the activities of the so-called 527's and called upon Kerry to join him in so doing. we'll have to wait and see if Kerry does the right thing and follows Bush's lead in that regard.
Is that REALLY even a question?
no matter which side you are on (liberal communist, like me , or patriotic conservative like 95) i don't think there is any room for these groups in politics.
But your hero doesn’t share that perspective, does he?
