Skip to comments.Ventura: Bush falls short on separation of church, state
Posted on 10/28/2004 3:31:22 PM PDT by Rakkasan1
Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura is silent no more on why he's supporting John Kerry for president.
Unleashing a strong attack against President Bush, Ventura appeared at Century Technical College in Oakdale Thursday to encourage young people to vote. He signed Kerry-Edwards posters but wouldn't answer questions from reporters.

"There's not a former Democrat or Republican governor in the country who would dare to look like this,'' said Ventura, an independent.
no monkey would dare for that matter.
Another atheist heard from.
Jessie 'The Buffoon' Ventura ... who cares what he thinks.
What a disappointment Jesse has turned out to be.
Ventura = ClueLess
How this mental midget got elected is beyond me. I wonder if any polls have been conducted of late that show that the people of MIN-A-SOOODA would vote for this clown again.
Jesse: I was sad when you got killed in the movie with Arnold. Now I will watch it and cheer!
ventura fall short on combination of brains/mouth.
Hey Jesse! Go wrap your pecker in a boa.
I think Jesse is getting a bit jealous that Arnie is getting all the attention nowadays, and Jesse is a barely-recalled footnote.
Venturas a bigot. No biggie, there's loads of them on the Planet Lovetron.
I saw him on TV the other day. He looks weird.
Oh yeah, I can see the theocracy forming now. Paranoid idiot.
Ventura started out with great fanfare then blew it and was a lousy governor. He began to believe his own press clippings and became a media whore like John McCain.
Ventura only wishes he had had the success of his old buddy Arnold and now is bitter.
So what does he do, he comes out for John Kerry and this from an old Navy Seal who could not possibly in reality have any respect for Kerry.
He has become a true hypocrite.
Kerry falls short on separation of individual and state.
There's only one candidate I see campaigning in churches this cycle, and it ain't Bush.
What do you mean turned out to be?
CHURCH AND STATE?
Who is the one that keeps talking about being guided by their faith if elected into the W House?
Who is the one that keeps holding political rallies in churches?
LOL.. Good point, altho he did outact aRnie and Carl Weathers in Predator.. He died real good. ;-)
He's a scumbag through and through. Not to mention a laughing stock as a governor.
So basically Jesse's support is based on religious bigotry...
Keep talking Jesse; your incompetency as governor led to a Republican governor, now your idiotcy as a private citizen is gonna help bring W the state of Minnesota.
I'm real glad that The Body and Der Shlick are out there campaigning for Kerry. Reminds people of how good they have it now.
We should have been emphasizing all along the people that are atheist that are against President Bush. A lot of people don't know that some (a lot)of these people are atheists.
"this from an old Navy Seal who could not possibly in reality have any respect for Kerry."
Maybe someone should pull Ventura's service record and have a look. Never know what one might see. Certainly makes me wonder.
I am trying to remember the hateful comment he had for Christians in an interview while governor... maybe in Playboy magazine.
An Jesse falls way short on know whats in the constitution!
THERE IS NO SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE!
Anyone know what Bobby "The Brain" Heenan thinks about all this?
yeah, this is from the guy who said, "that people who believe in God are weak".
Right, he was an actor that fooled the voters in MN I think.
No, this from the BROTHER of a Navy seal.... Jesse was never anything but a full-blown Democrat hiding his true colors, at least in the beginning. Little by little his mask kept slipping and his true worthless Democrat self began to show until it was obvious to even the worst of the fools he deceived.
Oh no! Does this mean president Bush may not poll well among Satan worshiping skinheads?
``Personal spiritual beliefs are fine,'' said Ventura, who wore a Navy Seals T-shirt, blue jeans and tennis shoes. ``But this is your job. You have to be able to separate the two. I believe John Kerry understands this distinction. President Bush does not.''Our President obviously allows and listens to dissenting discourse but he also makes decisions based on his core belief which is why you know were he stands whether you agree or not this is a sign of character and not a flaw.
Ventura also explained that he's sporting his new look - long hair and a braided beard - to show freedom of choice and freedom of speech.Preach on Jessie Is everything just for show and without substance?... I see why Kerry is your man.
``I believe in personal freedom, freedom of choice and freedom of expression. I chose to look like this after I left office. There's not a former Democrat or Republican governor in the country who would dare to look like this,'' Ventura said.
Jesse was NEVER assigned to a Seal team-
He made it through BUDS training and was assigned to
to a group that never left the phillipines.
He made it -because his brother told him how to prepare
for BUDS school - kudos on being smart enough to ask.
Jesse hates any Christian- for one reason -his big mouth-
spouting out how he screwed whores in Nevada- Everyone
I know was shocked here in Minn.- and told him so...
Jesse has been pissed ever since- Jesse hates his wife-
kids and his life- a bitter man who cannot/willnot
admit any of his glaring faults-Whoring,cursing Christians -hating religion and anyone who goes to church.
Yes,he has called them weak minded-needing a crutch.
He Won in Minn -Just as Clintoooon- won the first time-
with a split vote and only 37%!! suckered a lot of
people with his awshucks I am an honest Abe routine.
The press locally killed him- nationally he was the
greatest politician ever!- conservatives finally brought
him down (he was O.K. with most liberals- had a chief of
staff queer- arrested for soliciting,yep an undercover cop)
But in Jesse's fantasy world -He really believes he will
answer to know one least of all a "Christian God"
Guess what -I thought this dufus was already living in
California- you guys can have him!!
Just my 2 cents
Could rant forever on this loser- will end by saying...
Research your candidate- if Minnesotans would have-
this guy would have been long gone.
Well good for him. That was never in the minds of our founding fathers Mr. Ventura.
His brother is a regular caller to religious stations in the Twin Cities. He's obsessed with telling the world that everyone who believes is a moron.
Ventura: Does anyone remember me? Come on - I was hot once. Everyone fawned all over me. Anyone? Hello????
We clearly have a problem with the ACLU driving our legal agenda against our culture. How to defend ourselves against it? I'm one of those "separationists" who can see that the second amendment is currently in a lot more danger than the first amendment. Americans are working out what they think about the notion of separation. Personally, I think paying for Islamic faith-based ministries is an example of how wrong you can go when you stray into the realm of mixing state and religion. But President Bush has (either intentionally or by default) defended my right to keep and bear arms. Campaign finance reform is a much bigger threat to our first amendment rights than President Bush's positions on state and religion, at least in my view.
Damn, you beat me to it. Good one.
Wish Gorilla Monsoon was still alive, he'd pound some sense into him.
He thinks his pecker is a boa.
Fledermaus: Ventura falls short of separation of Head and A$$.
I wonder what Mean Gene thinks of Jesse now.
Ventura falls short on brains. Was he does have he uses to corrupt the young. That's, because he knows the adults all know he's full of it.
The Christian-bashing, failed one-term governor can now shut up and sit down.
