Prof Says Bush Supported Vietnam War
President Bush' former Harvard Business School prof says his ex-student supported the Vietnam War but wanted somebody else to fight it.
Yoshi Tsurumi said yesterday that Bush told him his father's connections got him into the Texas Air National Guard. "But what really disturbed me is that he said he was for the Vietnam War," said Tsurumi, who has also taught at Baruch College and the City University of New York. "I said, 'George, that's hypocrisy. You won't fight a war that you support but you expect other people to fight it for you.' He just smirked."

1. Is this the same professor that talked about Bush's RW views?
And about being in the bottom 10% of the class and the flippant attitude.

2. How did we miss this on Friday or did someone else post it?
He is such a disgusting slimeball!

This honorable, "Christian" man bullsh#@ has got to be knocked off him. Most people who think he is a "nice" guy they would like to hang out with need to find out what he is really like. That is why the TANG stuff and Kitty Kelley book is needed.

4. Bush supported the war verbally...
... while avoiding it physically.

What's the big deal? At least Bush supported young men (other than himself) going to Vietnam and getting killed in a futile war. Kerry fought the war physically and opposed it verbally, the bastard. Didn't he know that true heroes use their dad's connections to avoid war and then shoot their mouth off about how it is such a good idea for other people to actually fight it.

Get yourself to Republican school and learn a few things about heroes. There can be no greater Republican heroism than to serve (verbally) when called.
