I was listening to a radio program last night and they had a two hour segment entitled "If the election were held today, who would you vote for?"
Bush received the majority of the votes since the host of this particular program is to the right of Limbaugh and his aundience follows his lead.
At one point a caller said, "I'm going to vote for Kerry."
The host asked why.
"Because it seems that ever since Bush has been in office the rest of the world dislikes us more and more. I just think it's time for a change."
The host said, "Ok, I'll put you down for Kerry. Next, we go to Bob, in his car."
"Yeah, hi. Who the hell cares what the rest of the world thinks of us? Put me down for Bush."
True story and verbatim.
And sadder still was the identity of that caller: Donald Rumsfeld.
I believe it, Gus. And I agree with you.
They are an unreal batch.
Their strongest argument has to do with the nation's safety...but apparently they can block out the fact that this administration has done more to further the interests of terrorists...and done more to damage the prestige of the United States...than any of our "enemies."
They are the enemy...and the people who back them are backing our enemy.
well Gus, I was in the garden supply store this morning looking at garden ponds and fountains and stuff when this old codger about my age walked up to me and said "this is the first day I have been out since I had my knee replaced" so I turned to him and without batting an eye said "with what?" and he looked me deep in the eye and said "are you a truck driver?"
Well, I had to leave right then and there. I can't take too much of that **** in the morning.
I'm for Bush because Cheney said I was gonna get bombed by a terrorist if I voted any other way.
EB, Uncle Dick is just thinking of your safety and well-being, so shut the f up and take your medicine! And if you don't like it you can just move to Texas.
Dys, that's one of the funnies anecdotes I've heard in quite some time.
I do believe you deserve one of those laughing emoticon guys, and believe me, I just don't toss those things around freely.
here ya go...
well thanks Gus, the lady Diane just thought I was being crass towards the old codger.
Reminds me of the time I was at this party with a bunch of steel workers. Nice guys but pretty crude. All they wanted to talk about was kicking ass and eating cats. (if you get my drift)
Anyway, one of the guys was going to Paris because he had won a trip. He asked some of the other guys, "You ever been to Paris?"
"Fock no" said one. "Bunch of foreigners there."
He turned to me and asked if I had been there.
"Only vicariously", I replied.
The room went silent. One of the bigger, drunker ones puts his face about an inch from mine and growls, "What are you.... a fockin' real estate agent?"
So what did you tell him Gus? are you now or have you ever been a fockin' real estate agent? If you name three others we will ask the judge to go light on you, promise.
I looked him square in the eye and told him I was a dental hygienist.
He said, "Fock that" and left to get another beer.
good for you Gus, that's what I wanted to hear. BTW are you still selling that land down there in the swamp to Texans?
Would someone tell me why I should base my vote on what the world thinks?
And has anyone here actually been to Paris lately? I hope you brought your wife a burqa.
Hey, I'm a moderate, despite what you might think, and will even vote for Democrats if they're the right person for the job. Kerry isn't. He's an ultra-liberal left wing creep. His voting record speaks for itself.
It's a tough choice I know. A guy who might be disingenuous and might be a flip-flopper against a guy who rushed us into the biggest military blunder in the last forty years.
10 out of 10 terrorist say, "anybody but Bush".
Let's see...the guy who is responsible for a thousand dead U.S. soldiers and a growing number of insurgents in Iraq, or a guy who threw his medals away thirty years ago...how will I ever decide?
His voting record speaks for itself.
Betcha can't quote on a single vote that hasn't been mis-quoted to you by the present administration> Why don't you start with Kerry's votes in opposition to the various weapons
or you choose,
what votes on what issues by John Kerry have offended your sense of whatever. No fair quoting some right wing rag, from your own research of the Congressional Record, please.
Hmmm...A career politician who has been in combat, or a former drunk who can barely form a coherent sentence? This could be the toughest choice I've ever had to make.
My toughest choice is to decide not to watch all three major propaganda networks, or if I should wet some toilet paper and pick one to watch for cleaning my screen.
