Thanks, Hud.

1 This is totally bogus. The font has been around since 1931 according to the company that created it. It has been available in proportial spacing on commonly available office IBM typewriters since the 1950's. This is so tiresome. The memos are authentic.

2 Source? Links? ANYTHING? Oh, right, you attended the Dan Rather Explanation School. Sorry, MRE, clearly you and your unnameable sources know ALL.

3 Yeah they're authentic... including the pressure from a guy already retired the year before. Gimme a break. And commonly available? Have you got one?

4 Available...only to th Times of London, who owned the font. They later licensed it to Microsoft.

5 If it's a computer generated forgery as you freepers claim, they why is it that nobody can come up with an exact replica of the document? The reproduction by LGF is only similar.

7 This is interesting. Bush in a photo with his wife on campaign liturature. In the copy Bush is out and out lying about the extent of his military service claiming to have served in both the US Air Force and the Texas Air National Guard.

9 If you understood military training you would know that the year he spent in pilot training was on active duty.

10 Drudge has the PDF showing Bush was on active duty in the Air force. MRE is probably the same person that Lt Smash is talking about in his post from 9/13. He obviously doesn't have a clue about anything military. Give it up and talk about something with substance. Vietnam is not relevant to the future of this country.
