As such I didn't comment on something I do not know all the details of. You should try it.

Specific referral please rather than a generic attack.


Quote:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You are correct, violating the law and intentionally endangering others is the hallmark of a great president.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Where did you see me say it was a good thing?


Apparently you have a severe reading comprehension or short-term memory problem.

All of my intial post was directed towards this comment of Enter's: I'd have to say that President Bush makes a fine president.

My response was taking the position that Bush is NOT a fine president.


It certainly doesn't disqualify him from being president.

Guess you read things that were never said. Never said anything about qualifications. We will try again: I'd have to say that President Bush makes a fine president.


Quote:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In a republic that is true, but he constantly calls us a democracy, which is hypocritical or at least, ignorant.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So do the majority of Americans, both left and right. It's a common mistake, even Klinton calls it that. (both of them)


Where does Clinton come in here? Can you not stay on track man? So you think that political ignorance is the hallmark of a fine president?


Quote:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
There is strong evidence that quick, decisive action may have stopped the second plane into the WTC and DEFINITELY could have prevented the Pentagon attack. Why you would ever defend this demonstration of lack of concern and leadership is beyond me.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Actually, every timeline I've seen has shown there wasn't enough time. Care to provide a source for your claim? It has nothing to do with a lack of concern and to claim otherwise is blatant bullshit.


I see. The president "knew" ahead of time that nothing further could be done and that is why he dilly-dallied for 20 minutes while New York burned. So in your mind, continued reading of the Billy Goat story was a decisive "action" and is the hallmark of a fine president?


Quote:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hey, we agree that he is not defending the constitution as he took an oath to do; again not the mark of a great president.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In this case yes, not good. However, have you ever made a similar post about Klinton, the FBI files, Travelgate, Juanita Brodderick, Kathlene Wiley (sp) or are you too enamored with Bubba?


What evil or stupidy that others have propagated is irrelevant as to whether or not Bush is a "fine President". This is twice that you have brought up Clinton now. Guess it is impossible for your attention not to wander to your favorite subject which was never mentioned nor implied.


Quote:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Apparently you are unaware that his henchmen, er, cabinet members and similar postholders, are hand-picked to be in accord with his policies. Did you think Hutchinson was elected? Try some junior college courses and get up to speed on political science.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So he picked the arresting officers personally? I'd say it's you who needs to brush up on accuracy. You said....

"Consistently violates states rights by arresting cripples in Santa Cruz and convicting Ed Rosenthal in a trial that made a total mockery of justice."
He arrested no-one. He convicted no-one. What part of He do you fail to grasp.


And Hitler did not kill a single Jew; he merely gave the orders.

Bush promised to protect the states rights which he did not. This is called a lie; a broken promise. He hand-picked the Attroney General and Drug Czar to follow his wishes. Apparently you know little about management, being Commander-in-Chief, "the buck stops here" or any form of leadership authority and responsibility.


Quote:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
So you think that violating human rights makes for a great president? Look at his horrific record in Texas prisons.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Why do you have so much trouble with a simple sentence.


I am guessing that this is, in effect, a question. But what it refers to is anyone's guess.

Is blind hatred obscuring your vision?

Hatred? Obscuring? My eyes are open wider than most Americans.


I do however have no problem with capital punishment if that's what you're getting at.

Never mentioned that. Under Bush, Texas had the highest per capita prison population. Under Bush, the USA has the highest per capita prison population ever.


Quote:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
True, but how does making more enemies make our nation safer? I suppose the WTC bombings had absolutely nothing to do with our foreign policy?!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
More than likely (although we'll never know, 9/11 would have happened no matter who was president.


Perhaps, but do you believe that Bush should keep making bad foreign policy decisions to ensure future acts of revenge?


Quote:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
How is that "lame"? How many others on this site are total hypocrites in that they support stiff prison sentences for cocaine use?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
It's lame when you don't include the second sentence in the original post. It's lame when you write the sentence in a manner which only suggests he's a bad guy for having done cocaine.


Ah, a person who commits a felony is a "fine president" with or without the second sentence.


Quote:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Double-standard. See above.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Every (well most anyway) parent looks out for his kids. If he didn't you'd bash him for that as well.


That is a pathetic strawman. Try responding to what I ACTUALLY wrote, not what you would have me write. A basic course in logic might help your debating skills and make you more credible.


Quote:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I see. We should only spend money on death-affirming projects such as weapons, military might, and war. This is a very Christian attitude.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I'm an atheist.


Irrelevant what religion you are. This thread is NOT about you. Bush claims to be a Christian, but does way too many unChrist-like acts.


We should only spend money on that which is authorized by the constitution and bill of rights. War is covered, "life affirming" projects are not. Work to change the constitution if you're not happy with it. I like it as is.

Naivite at is zenith. The USA spends all kinds of money on things not specified by the Constitution; which by the way, is being dismantled piece-by-piece under the fine leadership of Mr. Bush.


He is FAR better than our last president.
Third Clintonian reference. Do you have an obsession? Whether or not CLinton was or was not a fine president has ZERO bearing on whether or not Bush is a fine president. This fact seems beyond your grasp.

The proof is in the pudding.

IMO your entire post.

Quote:

Can't you do any better than that? My response to you was a direct comment on your response to me. Perhaps if you go back and re-read it you'll do better the second time.

Quote:

I can comprehend sarcasm.

Quote:

Nope. I was just asking if you had the same problem when others do it.

Not very good at either comprehending the written word or reading minds are you? I'm still waiting for the source of your claim.

Quote:

Still just curious if you have a problem with others or if you only find Bush's action contemptible.

Apparently you know little about management, being Commander-in-Chief, "the buck stops here" or any form of leadership authority and responsibility.



And it seems you can't follow along with Congress being the ones to make or change laws. Does that mean Bush has asked for them to be changed? I doubt it but he didn't pass or sign the laws. They were there when he was elected.

Quote:

Hatred? Obscuring? My eyes are open wider than most Americans.



I'm sure you think so but I've seen nothing here to back up that pompous claim.

Quote:

Under Bush, Texas had the highest per capita prison population. Under Bush, the USA has the highest per capita prison population ever.



And that would have changed had someone else been in charge? Can you either prove that or provide someone elses proof? Or is it ESP, future sight or wishful thinking?

Quote:

Ah, a person who commits a felony is a "fine president" with or without the second sentence.



I didn't say he was a fine President. Please, your arguements are weak enough on their own without you "exaggerations".
My point was it was a poorly written sentence. The second sentence changes the entire meaning.

Quote:

That is a pathetic strawman. Try responding to what I ACTUALLY wrote, not what you would have me write. A basic course in logic might help your debating skills and make you more credible.



Nothing "strawman" about it. I was trying to point out nicely I find you to be, or at least come across, as an incredible hypocrite. And as for logic, IMO yours is poor at best. I'd go as far as to describe it as shameful.

Quote:

Irrelevant what religion you are. This thread is NOT about you. Bush claims to be a Christian, but does way too many unChrist-like acts.



I wasn't aware atheist was or is a religion. As to the second, what Bush claims to be is unimportant to me as long as he looks out for the US first.

Quote:

The only one naive here is you. The US should spend no monies not speciffically allowed for in the Constitution and the Bill Of Rights.

Still just curious. You produced nothing beyond my grasp other than wonderment at your thought processes.


Should you decide to waste even more of your time, at least try not to put words in my mouth this time.

Sarcasm? There is that reading comprehension problem again. "I'd have to say that President Bush makes a fine president. " is the quote from Enter that I responded to.

This is called side-stepping. Start a new thread on Clinton and I will respond there instead of muddying this one up.

Do you NOT understand the nature of a question? There is no mind-reading going on, but a request for clarification. Check the punctuation at the end there.

Your repetition is monotonous. Start a new thread.

Nice, but weak try. Congress did NOT force Bush to make or break a promise. PERIOD

Congress did not pick Bush's cabinet members. PERIOD

Congress did not direct Hutchinson and Ashcroft to send D.E.A. Agents to a medical marijuana dispensary full camo gear and automatic weapons in Santa Cruz when a knock and a warrant would have sufficed. Period.

This is fact that cannot be argued. I never mentioned the why or how, but only the "isness" of it. As usual you cannot deal with what was ACTUALLY presented. Look up the stats at the Bureau of Prisons.

ONCE AGAIN ENTER SAID THAT and this was a refutation. Why do you have such enormous trouble with understanding the nature and theme of a post? Go back to the beginning and read it.

There is that amazing reading comprehension difficulty again. Never said that atheism was or was not a religion; only that yours was irrelevant to Bush's religious hypocracy.


As to the second, what Bush claims to be is unimportant to me as long as he looks out for the US first.
This thread is still NOT about you, but about whether or not "Bush is a fine president." I know this is difficult for you to follow.

There is no mention of the word "should". There are thousand of projects that the USA spends monies on not outlined in the Constitution. This is unarguable.

Truly sad. I'll waste no more time with this.

Responding with misleading sentences and half truths will not score you any points except with half-wits.

I'll just leave you with a "keep trying".
