    Ya, so? Bush picked them up, looked through, noticed the caps were on, removed them, looked again. Is there a point to any of this?

    Actually I wasn't trying to make a point. We all make mistakes or do something stupid every once in a while. Like it says there on snopes, we just don't have a hundred cameras watching us 24/7.

    Bush has done somethings I like, some things I don't.

    It isn't about stupid crap like this. This is from the same Snopes piece:

    Whether real or manipulated, these photographs demonstrate nothing beyond the trivial.

    Nothing better to do than to see how many times I can make you post back. Post back with zero substance and zero factual basis. It's alot actually. I seem to have lost count at about a bazillion.

    And there is a long list of books being published by Clinton haters. Both sides have their opportunists wanting to tap into their respective radicalized markets.

    Look at what the other choices were, Kerry??
    You mean the decorated Vietnam combat veteran?
    Yeah, we remember him. He volunteered for combat duty overseas, while your man spent most of his time in a drunken stupor while protecting Houston from the NVA.
    How could we forget??

    I would pick my battles a little more carefully than this, buddy. I think the Swift Boat Veterans pretty much debunked this argument.

    They lied? Than how come Kerry ran away from them like a scared girl rather than standing up for the truth?

    Quite the opposite. It was the Swifties who were debunked. Several received the same decorations for actions they claimed didn't happen.

    Which incident are you talking about? The one where he pulled a SF troop out of the water and received a Silver Star? The troop who got pulled out wrote an Op Ed for the WSJ (a conservative newspaper) detailing that is exactly what happened. The troop went on to be an LA County Deputy and admitted registered GOP.

    But we do know Bush spent a lot of time in a drunken stupor in Houston while thousands of men his age were being sent to Vietnam. Like all good conservatives he supported the troops. Which takes a lot of courage when your 13 time zones away.

    BINGO!!!

    It's funny how you can find what is seemingly a credible article making light of something potentially wrong with our President, and the ultra-conservative crowd jumps on it and madly defends the man....even when it is well documented he has had a problem with alcohol.

    Yet, they will drag up anything they can find to make a liberal look bad....


    BTW, Isn't Abramoff a conservative???

    Abramoff played both sides of the fence.

    I don't think the Navy was using the swift boats on the rivers at the time Kerry volunteered for them. After he got in they started sending them into combat up the rivers. That would take the edge off of "volunteered for combat duty".

    P.S. Has the timing and other discrepencies with his discharge ever been explained? I seem to remember reading about his Honorable Discharge not being issued untill 1976.
