29. My mistake. Your word was "opponents." Not "enem[ies]."
Edited on Fri Sep-03-04 04:06 PM by RandomKoolzip
"As for Kerry I am disgusted that he will not rescind his senate seat for the race. Yes he may be jetting back to DC for only the most crucial and closely divided votes, but he IS getting paid and not working in the senate. Anyone who knows about Massachusetts knows the state legislature, not the Governor, is responsible for assigning someone to a vacant seat. The state legislature is heavily democratic- there is no danger of the Senate gaining a Massachusetts Republican as many argue as the reason Kerry still sits.
Im also concerned that there are some records he will not release in regard to his military service.
To his credit - The Swift Boat Veterans stories have been fully debunked by reams of testimony and documentation by those who did serve with him most closely.

It seems quite evident that Kerry was quite courageous in battle homicidal maybe, but definitely courageous.

I think perhaps (and hope as well) that Kerry is really less liberal at heart than we think. I believe he may have run as a Democrat in Massachusetts because, lets face it, its harder to win there as a Republican. Perhaps I am overreaching, but it would not be beyond a crafty politician to do so. I believe it is unlikely that terrorist will gain such a significant advantage with Kerry in office as most internal security has been autonomous for decades with the exception of budgetary concerns. It would of course be political suicide for ANY sitting President to reduce the budget for intelligence.
My only concern is that he may be beholden to his constituents as you indirectly suggested.

I would definitely appreciate if you had more information about Kerry and his misgivings I like to know our opponents." (emphasis mine.)

So to which message board are you lying? LimaOhio or democraticunderground? Personally, I don't give a shit as long as you're not actively trying to defeat "our" candidate. That's against DU rules.

Having read your post, though, I must say I'm glad to have an educated, moderate republican on DU to read our "biased liberal ranting." Looks like you don't drink the kool-aid, thank goodness.
