Skip to comments.John Kerry is better choice for president (Yet another Bush was the bomb on 9/11 BUT...endorsement)
Posted on 10/17/2004 5:38:19 AM PDT by A Balrog of Morgoth
President Bush has so polarized this country, and so antagonized most of the rest of the world, that it's easy to forget the breadth of the domestic and international support he enjoyed just three years ago. In the immediate aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, the president showed solid leadership when a wounded nation needed it most. And when he quickly ordered our forces to retaliate in Afghanistan against al-Qaida and its Taliban protectors, his decision won virtually unanimous backing at home and abroad.
Blah Blah Let's suck on Kerry's Vietnam jungle rot-infested toes Blah Blah Blah

I always get my recommendations for voting from the St. Pete Times...if they say vote for them...I vote against them.
That's a sure fire way to vote for the right candidate!
Yes, I'll agree. But it's not exactly a person...it's the DNC. They're straight down the line, DNC talking points. This one mentions Hoover's job record, and other DNC talking points.
How? By calling his opponent "Hitler"? A Liar? AWOL? A NAZI? A moron?
Oh wait. Thats from the tolerant John Kerry camp who IS defending a liar, a moron and a traitor!
Okay, this is toooo funny!
I live in Tampa Bay, I don't subscribe to the Times.
My son just went outside and found a Sunday edition of the Times in our driveway. They must be giving them away today, blanketing the neighborhoods with free papers because they include their endorsement of Kerry.
Can you say "influence peddling"?
And why not ask the hard question as a reporter? Why not delve a little deeper and ask WHY? Why did this president who has such strong leadership and will and enjoyed the approval of the world decide to take on Saddam Hussein? Just read the Dulfer report and report on it correctly... This president as many of us did envisioned the scenario that intelligence agencies presented him... He envisioned Terrorists with WMD's striking our cities... Could there be any other conclusion. He gave Saddam many chances to come clean, he gave the UN many chances to do what was right, he gave the world notice that we would not wait until a threat materialized again. He learned the lessons of 911... What has Senator Kerry learned? Nothing... global tests .. asking permission of nations whos leadership is undermining the very sanctions that they put in place.. Prove to the world when the world is sleeping with the enemy..No in this regard our president was right and how many American lives has he saved ... Luckily we will never know...
George Soros paid for it all...
George Soros paid for it all...
I quit reading at this point. What a load of horse doodly.
Bill Clinton (He Who Was Never Elected By A Majority, Handed Over Military Command to the UN, Perjured Himself, Was Impeached, and Was Disbarred), and his beeyotch (She Who Was Not A Public Officer But Thought She Was) had absolutely nothing to do with polarizing this country. /sarcasm off
Note to this newspaper...The oath to be taken by the president on first entering office is specified in Article II, Section 1, of the Constitution:
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.
When Kerry states that he'll wait until AFTER we're attacked to respond, he's already forsworn that oath.
Man, there sure seems to be a conserted effort on this "line" today! The world hates America! We, along with the coalition do what is right for the world and they hate us for it. It's like a spoild brat teenager that doesn't get their way and screems, "I hate you!" America will keep on protecting and defending regardless of the world's Spoiled Brat Selfish Mentality
So, these paper's agree with Kerry that we need, "some sort of Global Test."
My letter to the editor after receiving a "FREE" copy of this paper this morning (even though I don't subscribe)
Subject: Free Paper on day the paper endorses Kerry
Coincidence, or manipulation??? That's the question I'd like the St. Petersburg Times to answer.
I don't subscribe to the Times, but found a copy of the Sunday paper in my driveway this morning.
It seems odd to me that I would receive a "free" paper on the morning that the Times endorses Kerry on their Editorial Page.
Is it a coincidence? I don't think so!
Ah, I see - Bush is solely responsible for the venomous hatred that permeates the Left. Makes good sense to me - NOT!
Something tells me that the Left won't be happy until we've "achieved" complete global anarchy and anihilation.
I see we were thinking along the very same lines (see my #17).
America will NOT keep on protecting and defending if JF'nK becomes President. But the rest of the world WILL be getting it's way. We will have given in to the spoiled brat teenager.
The press and the Dems are the ones who have polarized the country... period. Al Gore started it by taking the election to the courts, something NO OTHER candidate for President ever did. It has been proved by recounts done by the self-same press that Gore LOST in Florida. Yet the stinking press has passed on Democrat lies to the contrary that Bush lost as if they were true for nearly four years.
The press has legitimized the incessant lies by the Dems about Bush without challenging them. The presstitutes have attacked Bush unrelentingly and they have legitimized the liberal wacko fringe in the person of Michael Moore. They have not challenged the lying Dems on their hints accusing Bush of "knowing" about 9/11. They have not challenged the evil Dems calling Bush every name in the book including "Hitler".
So who has polarized the country? Look in a mirror, you d****** media.
People, myself included, can be so blinded by selfishness. It makes perfect sense that "The World" would hate Bush because of his forthrightness and willingness to protect and defend his homeland by going after the skerge of the earth.
The Spanish are in for a rude awakening because of their blantantly stupid choice of a socialist wanker who will further lead them down the road of peril.
It's amazing how history doesn't teach anybody a thing!
Sarasota Herald Tribune has done that often down here.
I'll take the paper and return it to the front door of the HT office. I try to get there as they are opening, and I'll start a rant about leaving their trash in my driveway. I LOVE the look on their faces first thing in the morning....HA HA HA
Remember all the Dems walking around after 9/11 and saying they were glad Gore wasn't President?
BTW, are you sure you're a balrog?
This would really only be NEWS if the St. Pete Times endorsed Bush. This endorsement is as predicable as increased darkness after sunset.
Here's a copy of my letter to the editor:
Subject: re: John Kerry is better choice...
It is not the mere endorsement of Kerry that I take issue with, but rather the logic used to come to this conclusion.
Let me ask you: Why is the country so divided? Who fostered hatred for Bush by claiming he knew 9/11 was going to happen, and then refused to offer an apology when this turned out to be false by the 9/11 commission? Who repeatedly yells that George W. Bush intentionally lied to the American people about WMDs when he was making the best decision available at the time upon British and Russian intelligence in addition to our own (it was Russia that informed us of Saddam's intention to purchase yellow-cake uranium)? Who cannot accept the fact that George W. Bush won the last election and tries to play the "race-card" even with the lack of concrete evidence of any voter disenfranchisement or intimidation? Who produced forged documents to try and attack the President's character on national television?
This nation is so divided because of people like George Soros, Al Gore, Howard Dean, and other Democrats who mercilessly throw lies about the President left and right in the hope that he will be crushed. George Bush could probably sue for the largest defamation of character lawsuit in the history of mankind.
If your main concern in this election is division, vote against the party that is CAUSING this division. Vote against the people driven by pure hatred of our leader and a lust for power. Tell them that we will not succumb to their blood-thirsty and malicious lies and until they choose to enter the political arena with sincerity and even a modicum amount of concern for the common good we will refuse to let them divide this nation because of their own self interest or quest to regain power.
This endorsement was expected by anyone who has ever heard of the St. Pete Times. The shocker is that the more conservative newspaper across the bay, the Tampa Tribune, refuses to endorse either candidate. They spent the almost the entire editorial page describing why they could not endorse George Bush but only one paragraph explaining why they couldn't endorse Kerry. I searched the Tribune's website as well as TBO.com but that article is not posted on either site, although all their other endorsements are posted. Strange...
Holding card to forehead... I predict I will rely on spelling checker and misuse predicable for predictable in posts.
I don't know what happened at the Trib, but they aren't as conservative as they once were.
I used to subscribe, but when their editorial policy starting to take a definite left lean, I canceled my subscription.
Let the newspaper sit on your driveway. Drive over it, let the rain pour, drop breadcrumbs to encourage pigeons to visit.
Then charge the paper $10 a day for renting space on your driveway. If they don't pay, file a suit in small claims court.
Any time a Florida-related thread is created on FreeRepublic, please be sure to add the "Florida" keyword to it so that interested FReepers don't miss it.
Onward to victory,
George Bush divided this Country? And Bill Clinton didn't? St. Pete Times, I think you'll see how effective your recommendation is on Nov 2.
Is it hard to see why fewer and fewer people are reading the newspaper. For advertisers newsprint is becoming a less effective, more expensive medium every year because of loss of circulation and higher cost per thousand. The St. Pete Times and other liberal rags like it are heading for extinction. I won't complain when that happens.
There are two types of Presidential Candidates:
Kerry, he cannot handle the ads by the Swift Boat veterans which criticize his Vietnam war record. Kerry has been crying and whining over these ads and cant handle it anymore, he has even filed a complaint. What type of Commander In Chief would he make if he cant handle the heat?
Bush, he can handle the heat from moveon.org, Michael Moores Fahrenheit 9-11 movie, war protestors, terrorists, and the world. He is a tough strong Commander In Chief and a fearless warrior who keeps on standing tall, positive, and strong. Nothing fazes President Bush.
On November 2004 I will vote for President Bush. I would like to see a real man as our President and not a rich spoiled crybaby Gigolo.
I'm just wondering one thing.
Do the RATS really think John Kerry is going to be able to unite the country? I doubt it. I think there are an enormous number of Americans who think Kerry is guilty of treason, myself included, and that if elected, their anger will get deeper and louder. These men, such as the Swift Vets will NOT simply go away if Kerry wins. We will be more divided then than ever before.
