mac, do you mean like calling Bush supporters "stupid" or "focking (sic) morons" or encouraging them to get their heads out of their "arse."
Methinks that thou seest the mote in others' eyes while ignoring the beam in thine own.
Again, just a thought.
This is the problem as I see it. Bush supporters are willing to admit to Bush's mistakes. I know that I can do that and I know that most of the pro-Bush people here can do the same.
The anti-Bush crowd, OTH, won't give him credit for the things that he has done right.
Every President's record is replete with triumphs and defeats.
Most of the anti-Bush people tend to be younger and thus lack insight and perspective Which explain their use of four-letter words. Also, they can't seem to be able to form a thought of their own, without having someone else's thoughts and opinions influence their thought process.
I just saw a post, on another board, where the poster claimed that Bush was GOING to start the draft again. He was aplopectic about the prospect.
Even a cursory search of the record shows that not once has Bush advocated a return to the draft. In fact, it was Charles chuckles Rangel, a Dem, whos has advocated a return to the draft (so that more white boys have to serve).
When I confronted this poster, he just kept saying things like "Bush lied people died." I couldn't get him off that little ditty.
So tell me mac, do YOU really think that Bush has been all bad?
Do YOU really think that Bush has done nothing right?
Do you think that Clinton was all good?
Do YOU really think he did nothing wrong at all?
Do you think that Carter was the best president we ever had? Or that Nixon was the worst?
Do YOU think that the anti-Bush crowd is all reasonable and genteel and educated and smart?
Do you think that all pro-Bush people are "focking morons" like that genius elau just spouted a few posts above?
The anti-Bush haters remind me of the drunk idiots at football games, bitching and moaning at every call by the coach that does not yield a 10+ yard gain. Or they remind me of the fair-weather fans who sit around supporting their team when it is ranked #1 in the polls.
They all think they know better. And they will tell you, with the beer-hot dogs-nacho reeking breath that THEY can do better. But give them the chance to coach and they would fall flat on their fat, beer-swollen red faces.
Tell me mac, what would YOU have done differently from Bush?
How wold YOU have run the country differently in the post 9/11 world that we now live in?
And what guarantees do YOU have for me that your plan would have worked better.
If you can come up with a better plan, run for office--I will be your biggest supporter.
