> Bush's own behavior and possible subordination of his own military superiors is all very relevant --- especially so --- in 2004.
This came up along with cocaine and abortion and Bush still beat the crap out of a popular Texas Governor named Ann Richards. It came up again in 2000. Old news as the Clintons used to say.
It is amazing to see how you treat Bush now and how you defended Clinton then.
It is amazing that you believe everything you agree with and believe nothing that you disagree with.
We know what Kerry said in front of congress after the war and we know he threw his medals, I mean his ribbons, I mean someone else's medals... We know his voting record. We know he is a Dukakis liberal.
It's all irrelevant because it's the economy stupid and it is the war of Terrorism.
The economy - stock market is up, 5.4% unemployment rate (that is extremely good), people are going to work, the millions of jobs lost due to 911 are turning into millions of newer jobs. Don't quote me numbers from 2003 only! You have to apply the numbers up to the present.
By the time the election nears. the numbers should be so much better that it will kill any chance of Kerry winning!

Right - and Gore lost the electoral vote.
Like I said on an earlier post, if Bush wins the popular vote but loses the electoral vote, you liberals will not say "Well, Bush got 500,000 more popular votes." And if the SCOTUS gets involved and deems lawfully that the election was won by Kerry, you liberals won't say that "Kerry stole the election. Kerry was selected, not elected." It will show the hypocrites that you guys really are.
If Kerry wins Florida by 1500 votes on election night and then by 500 after the recount, and that decides it, then that is who wins! I can live with that, you guys could not.

It is the economy stupid. You see the stock market being up doesn't affect us average Americans. Unemployment at 5.4% is an interesting number but that is all it is. it has nothing to do with income. Income for new hires is down. As importantly, the 5.4% rate does not only not replace jobs lost but the growth rate of the economy will not emcompass workers entering the labor force for the first time.

Jaime, Paul obviously didn't understand your post. Surprised?
In another post, Paul said:
"We know what Kerry said in front of congress"
Really? Do you? Please tell us! (And prepare to be corrected, as I'm guessing that the Freepers and NewsMaxers didn't *actually* tell you what he said...so amuse us please!)
He also said:
"We know his voting record."
Do you? How does it differ from Cheney when it comes to Defense Cuts? Please let us know!
And finally he said:
"It's all irrelevant because ... it's the war of Terrorism."
Freudian slip? Or has Paul finally gotten something right?! The war *of* Terrorism, indeed.
