Comments: Hillery Speaks Sense, for once

Actually, she did make several similar comments last October, I think. She was speaking in Iraq to the troops at the time ... so if that trip was not in October, I cheerfully stand corrected.

We'll trade you one Hillary for one McCain. (We'll have to put him through some heavy reindoctrination sessions, mind you.)

No need for a trade Karlo, we'll give McCain to you. His entry into your way of thinking is 85% there anyway.

I still see the need for heavy reindoctrination sessions. (; Actually, I disagree that McCain is "left" in any sense of the word. But he is at least independent and at times principles--qualities lacking in most of our politicians. That said, if he ran for president, I would never vote for him since I don't care for his stand on most issues.

"That said, if he ran for president, I would never vote for him since I don't care for his stand on most issues."

SOMETHING we agree on for once!

...and at times principles--qualities lacking in most of our politicians.

You HAD to ruin it with that statement. McCain is for one thing and one thing only, and that's John McCain. I believe that Preident Bush is one of the most pricipled politicians there has ever been.

You may not agree with those principles, but he tells you exactly what he believes and why he believes that way and then proceedes to follow the course he has outlined, even in the face of some of the greatest opposition that any President has ever had to deal with.

THAT is the definition of being principled. I think that that is one of the reasons that the Left hates him so much, they know that he won't go along to get along.

Those tapes made by a "friend" of his reveal that to be true, the private Bush is the same as the public Bush. They also revealed that he was willing to go against what the Left considers his "Main" voters bloc, the evangelical Christians, in his remarks about gays. For that alone, I am certainly grateful.

Rather than principled, I think Bush is loyal--to his own true constituency of the extremely wealthy. When it comes to the smoke-screen of social issues, on the other hand, he's the ultimate opportunist. Are we to believe that this cocaine-sniffing draft-dodging weasel who never worked a damn day in his life has these heart-felt religious convictions that make him stand up for the war on drugs, the value of hard work, religious values, and a robust and aggressive foreign policy? A bit hard to swallow to say the least. Each time I see him in front of a podium shifting around as he whines about how someone else just "doesn't get it," I just can't believe that anyone sees him as the example of a "leader." You could toss a rock into any crowd of people with 2 or more people in it and hit a better leader.

"loyal--to his own true constituency of the extremely wealthy."
"draft-dodging weasel who never worked a damn day in his life..."

Most perfect descriptions of Senator Splash I have ever seen! Thanks Karlo!
