1. Great Article.
Edited on Mon Jul-19-04 10:59 PM by benfranklin1776
He nails it.

"I have sadly come to the conclusion that President Bush
is merely a frontman, an empty suit, who is manipulated
by the people in his administration. Bush has the most
dangerously simplistic view of the world of any president
in my memory."


* * * *
"This election really is important, not only for domestic
reasons, but because Bush's foreign policy has been a
dangerous disaster. He's almost restarted the Cold War
with Russia and the nuclear arms race. America is not
only hated in the Middle East, but it has few friends
anywhere in the world thanks to the arrogance and
ineptness of the Bush administration. Don't forget, a
scientific poll of Europeans found us, Israel, North Korea
and Iran as the greatest threats to world peace."

* * * *
"I will swallow a lot of petty policy differences with Kerry
to get a man in the White House with brains enough not
to blow up the world and us with it. Go to Kerry's Web
site (www.johnkerry.com ) and read some of the
magazine profiles on him. You'll find that there is a great
deal more to Kerry than the GOP attack dogs would have
you believe.

Besides, it would be fun to have a president who plays
hockey, windsurfs, ride motorcycles, plays the guitar,
writes poetry and speaks French. It would be good to
have a man in the White House who has killed people
face to face. Killing people has a sobering effect on a
man and dispels all illusions about war."

Yet another traditional conservative driven from the Republican Party by the extremism of the
neoconartists who hijacked it. I applaud his display of common sense and reason.

4. And every patriotic American who considers himself/herself a conservative
should have long ago made similar assessments and arrived at essentially the same conclusions. The fact that some 40% of voters probably have not/will not is scary indeed and tells volumes about most of the mainstream media and his corporate and other major patrons who are IMHO selling out our Republic, our Constitution, the rule of law, and the rule of sanity.

6. Charlie has come a long way since his days writing
ultra paleo-right wing editorials for the Orlando Sentinel. Welcome to our world, Charlie. :toast:
