Right. Much smarter to vote for someone who will delay the war to win votes.
From the LA Times:
"The Bush administration will delay major assaults on rebel-held cities in Iraq until after U.S. elections in November, say administration officials, mindful that large-scale military offensives could affect the U.S. presidential race."
Not to mention wanting to reduce terrorism to the level of a nuisance is not the same thing as saying terrorism is a nuisance.
But make yourself happy.

That's a pretty nice spin attempt from the LA Times, considering that a) we just took Samarra, b) we just negotiated a cease-fire with al-Sadr, and c) six months ago, the Bush Administration ws saying that they're going to make a final anti-terrorist sweep in November and December. LA just got the news, eh?

I love to pass my cursor over the highlighted names of the snide, rude posters you seem to attract. Ever noticed how most of their e0mail addresses end with ".edu"? Hmm. Makes me thank the lord that I got out safely after a Bachelor's and Juris Doctor Degree with my brain still fully hydrated. Clearly, that educational environment causes some type of short circuit within the cortex. I'll let you know if I see you exhibiting any signs of lofty moonbattiness. Oh, and Happy birthday!

Sarah - I don't know the answer to your question but 76% of our troops will be voting for BUSH. So that tells you something right there.

I saw that the quote came from the LA Times and just skipped to the next comment.
Yeah, I read it earlier today. I just consider the source.
As for Your question Sarah - I don't understand. But the sad thing is neither "side" is capable of seeing why the other feels so strongly. It's an election like no other I've ever seen.

There are many people who resist facing unpleasant realities...Kerry's downplaying of the problem appeals to these individuals precisely because it allows them to keep the covers over their heads for a little bit longer.

Make up your minds will you!
"Can we win the war on terrorism? Yes, I think we can, in the sense that we can win the war on organized crime. There is going to be no peace treaty on the battleship Missouri in the war on terrorism, but we can break its back so that it is only a horrible nuisance
and not a paralyzing influence on our societies."

"In a word, I want an American character, that the powers of Europe may be convinced we act for ourselves and not for others; this, in my judgment, is the only way to be respected abroad and happy at home." --George Washington

Moor, I know it is hard for you...But do try to stay on topic and relevant to this century.
Your buddy Brent is living in what you like to call the September 12th world, unlike George Washington.
As far as the Forbes thing...I have no clue what you are trying to accomplish with that. But thanks for playing.
