    And if they didnt pass can we automatically blame it on those dastardly repulicans

    Thank you... I forgot to add that part. It was their fault...wasn't it?

    It was good that you showed that he did more than I EVER expected from him but still, the nagging question, can Jhon Kerry function in the highest office if he didn't really function in the lower ones. I still wonder what his motivation could be. He's filthy rich and nothing that I see in his record of public service shows me that he has a calling for it.
    The same was even more true of our so-called "President" before he stole the 2000 election. Kerry has a lengthy record of public service, which Shrub certainly did not. I truly don't understand how anyone who supports Shrub can possibly make the argument, with a straight face, that Kerry isn't "qualified" to be President ...

    The question is not what leadership did President Bush exhibit before he was, legaly and at the request of the dems elected. The Republicans didn't force it before the Supreme Court.

    The question is what has Senator Kerry done that would make you think he was any more capable? I see no motivation or apptitude for public service in Senator Kerry's record. This is not a job like the Senate that you can call in a vote twice a year and sponsor a bill that is so poorly planned that it's dead in comittee before anybody knows about it.


    If he can't do that part time job as Senator very well, why would anyone want him to fight terrorism?

    Couldn't name any? I suggest you look again. But I have to agree with you about pissing people off, I mean c'mon, considering that FRANCE, GERMANY, and CHINA, were busted red handed thawrting the UN "effort" of course they are upset. But pissing off those in cahoots with Sadaam (and therefore working to make the world a more dangerous place) is not really a mark against the legitimate president, is it?????

    Excellent statesmanship is a prerequisite to being president, not just stomping over all these people.

    Hey those are some impressive numbers-I am wondering how that compares to bills presented and passed by other Senate members? Everything there is relative and must be looked at in its totality. Is this better,worse or average? What are the other's numbers? I have seen many congressman and senators labor on good bills-do a lot of groundwork and not akways receive the credit. I have 2 congresspeople in my area-I don't like their work-but I never compared their records actually with all the other congressmen/women's records nationwide-so until I do-I am not really in much of a position to criticize.This could be the case with Kerry. Now on Military Service-3 principals are involved-bush Kerry and cheney-in that time period I know and experienced as the infamous Viet Nam Area. All 3 were in the same Income bracket-privelged as they say. 2 chose not to serve--in war-Bush and Cheney. Kerry volunteered and he could have evaded his responsability as the other two did. But he served-and I don't think anyone in their Right Mind would gone to that place and dodge bullets and mortars "just to fill his resume" lots of easier ways to accomplish that and not put yourself in Harm's way.I give the man credit for volunteering and not evading war service as the other two did.Now since the past is being brought up-a little history about George Bush-in the late 70's-early mid 80's-he took a stab at private enterprise in the oil business in texas-his seed money was from rich friends and family members-his first try was "Bush 7 exploration"-that went belly up in a few years. Next was Harkin Oil-another failure-bailed out by a group of arabs and through some fancy financial slight of hand tricks he sold out for around $850000. This was his stash to get a minority ownership in the texas rangers. Every private venture he attempted he failed at. But don't take my word for it-go to "the center for public integrity" website.It tells of other scintilliating tidbits about George.And then his inability to account for his whereabouts for his last year of Guard duty. So when its comes to accountability and credability he has shortcomings also. I would think this shadowy era of his life is not too complimentary and certainly something he wants to talk about. But its fair game as he is a public figure. And its true,you never hear him spout off much about his earlier life and this is why. I forget the EXACT website link-but do a search on "george bush failed texas oil company in texas" and that above integrity center will come up. If you care to-I certainly found it interesting.Have a good night Mike

    Good POINT!!! In my opinion, fLip flop kerry is a joke. I just wish more people would listen to alternative media sources like talk radio or fox......instead of forming their decision based on such horrible movies as Michael moores lastest attemept. Don't want to offend any one here, i just hope you listen to both sides of the story......one of these men seems to be sencere. I can't imagine the edititor who had to put together kerrys nam "documentation"......you know, his video. , the mans a joke
    Hi-for a really interesting story on George Bush-please check out the web site "center for public integrity" I just checked it out -real informative. Tells of his early oil business ventures.Mike
