The Lessor Of Two Evils

Contrary to some beliefs, I am NOT a blind Bush believer. I am in fact a registered Democrat. I didn't support Gore but I did not vote against him. I didn't think Bush was capable of rising to the task of destroying guerilla enemies of the U.S. He surprized me on that one. That alone doesn't make him the right man to lead the free world.
That said I cannot support my party's candidate this go round. Here's the SIMPLE reason. Kerry is running a negative campaign. EVERY sentence of EVERY speech begins with "This Administration's FAILURE............."
O.K. I got it a long time ago. Now, instead of whinning about what Bush has done, ignored, lied about, misunderstood, blah blah blah, why hasn't he offered a POSITIVE outlook on what MORE could be accomplished. His constant banter sometimes borders on treason. I would vote for Kerry in a minute if I thought his vision would benefit my country. So far the only vision I've seen from him is tunnel vision from focusing on the perceived weakness of his opponent. Gimme a REASON to vote Democrat instead of a reason NOT to vote Republican! I WILL vote against someone who sees no positive aspects of AMERICA.

You are right. It is easy to criticize someone doing Monday morning quaterbacking. Anyone can see that Kerry is taking cheap shots to win votes. He's got his good points but he needed to connect with the American people. If he loses, it's because he was too busy trash talking the oppossing candidate. Much like his followers on this forum do.

I wish that were the case. The sad truth is that we have a lot of people that CANNOT see that!! They are blinded by the light.

The Democrats don't need bigots like you, in fact, I think you are a lying piece of shit.

RE: The Lessor Of Two Evils

Carp'n,

Aren't you the guy who corrects everyone's spelling and diction around here, making snide comments about their poorly developed skills? What's with the title of this thread?

And, while I will restrain myself somewhat compared to Kirk, although I understand his point, I think you have proven to be the most insincere person posting here. At least the other guys I disagree with have a single personality and a point of view they think they understand.

Try turning your argument against Kerry around and examine the opposition. All I ever hear Bush say is that Kerry is the most liberal Senator from that most liberal of States, Massachusetts. Or he repeats portions Kerry's speeches completely out of context.

Neither candidate has been running a high road campaign, but suggesting Kerry's has less substance than Bush's is an indication of a hearing disorder. Or a listening disorder, something Bush seems to have a severe case of himself.

Good luck Tuesday, I hope you figure out who you are by then and vote accordingly. Jim

I wondered how long it would take before someone noticed that! [:D]
