Perhaps you would benefit from doing a little research before you make wild, untrue accusations. While I do not defend Bill Ayers connection with 1960's anti-war violence, Ayers never murdered anyone. His worst crime was blowing up a statue & breaking some windows. Fox News should not be your only source of information.

I suggest you not vote for Bill Ayers for President on 11/4. I won't either. ;) ....& if you respect former joint chiefs general & Sec of State Collin Powell, I suggest you not vote for John McCain either. :devil:

No Stephen.....Just like the vast majority of the American voters...........I don't want to talk about them at all.
We want to talk about the economy & current events. (If McCain wants to distract us....let him take up juggling or playing the harmonica or maybe street magic or making balloon animals or starting a cooking show or selling "Tupperware" or ........).

Let's face it, McCain has the support of the Military at large, he's one of them. Powells move was purely in his best interest. See, it's like this, Pelosi has said she will persue criminal charges against the Bush administration once the Democrats take over in Jan. He's basically just covering his ass from prosecution, oh and the fact that he believes in Affirmative Action, which falls in line with his other reason.....race.

The pariah known to the Democrats ( some on the left refer to him as a war criminal) as Gen. Powell is now their new found hero. What a joke.

Oh and whoever wrote Powell just said what Bush and Cheney fed him.....try again, it was Clintons former CIA chief George Tenent that FED him the intel. Just had to mention the often parroted Bull Sh!t that gets flung around Remember "Slam Dunk"? right and who said it? why do you all think the Dems jumped head first into the pool...becuase the Intel infrastructure was largely the same as when their Boy Bill was in charge, they trusted the info like everybody else including Powell. I will guarantee had it not been for this fact there would have been alot more Dem's not going along with it, Hillary, Kerry, Madeline Albright and other top dems pushed their weight around, they became the trusted in thier own party in the vote leading up to the war. It's not a secret fellas, it happened in real time in front of all of us.

After Bush/Cheney ordered him to find a pretext to invade Iraq. (They actually could have made a stronger case for us to invade Sweden.....You can never trust a guy named Sven!)

GW Bush wanted to kill Saddam Hussein over his alleged threats to kill his dad.........PERIOD!

So if Powell is supporting Obama due to race, does the same hold true for Lieberman, who is supporting McCain? Both are white, and if you follow the same logic I have read and heard others spew, then that must be the only reason, right?

Powell has always supported the Right to choose, and he has always been a moderate Republican. If you beleieve Palin really wants Intelligent design taught in schools, which implies she is a fundamentalist Christian ( Pentacostal), how could you support McCain? McCain is 72 years old folks and the actuarial tables say there is a 1 in 4 chace he will now serve out his first term. McCain (Palin tooo if she could actually put three words together) has always said he feels the Roe v. Wade case was a bad decision and should be overturned. That philosophical difference in the balance of the Supreme Court alone would be enough to sway a voter. Mostly, I think Powell feels he was thrown under the bus by the Bush administration and wants to see them run out of town. Powell was the darling of the Republican party for years and would be still if he continued to campaign for the Republican party as he did in the past, but, becuase he has a mind of his own and feels the Republican party has taken the wrong direction, he is now a bad guy? That just doesn't make sense.

"Can anyone blame Powell for dumping Bush/McCain/Republicans after they misled him about WMD. Powell lost a lot of respect and credability after making the case for war to the UN based on lies fed to him by Bush and Cheney."


Clinton was the first WMD crier, how soon we forget

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Moonbat (also "barking moonbat" and "moonbat crazy") is a term often used currently in U.S. politics as a political epithet referring to anyone that is believed to be liberal or on the left.

(Whereas "Wingnut" (or "right wing nut") is frequently preferred as the analogous epithet aimed at the political right[1]..)

I learn something new everyday. Moonbat... I love it :lol: :lol:

So what exactly is a true Republican these days Ed?....A nation builder like GW Bush?....A Socialist like John McCain?.....A "no-abortion ever" like Sarah Palin?......A straight shooter like Barry Goldwater?......A "Watch out for the military-industrial complex guy like Dwight D,. Eisenhower?......



RINO has no real meaning.......it's just a misspelled armored animal from Africa! ;)

Didn't you see him campaign for Bush and McCain in the past? Or was that the Liberal Media showing him campaigning for them to hurt the Republican party? I could care less what you or anyone else thinks, but was hoping you might see she is a poor choice for our country. Do you think I want more fiscal irresponsibility for the next four years? Hell no, and wish I had a good Republican option to vote for, but McCain/Palin isn't it. So go stick your head back in the sand and keep your personal name calling to yourself.
