View Full Version : More underhanded Republican Bullshite

12th August 04, 11:51 AM
You see folks, this is what I'm talking about. It's just another example of how low down Bush and Co are. They are such a corrupt organization/government with nothing of value to say about their leadership. Slander, lies, deceit, and distortion. That should be the name of the Bush administration. They have NOTHING good to say about the last 4 years, so all they can do is slander and attack. This is the absolute worst administration ever.

In their desperate efforts to paint Senator John Kerry (D-MA) as a serial flip-flopper, President Bush's reelection campaign has resorted to gross distortions of his public statements. The campaign is now trumpeting the fact that Kerry, after voting to authorize the use of force in Iraq, described himself "as an anti-war candidate."[1] The claim is based on a clip of Kerry's 1/6/04 appearance on Hardball with Chris Mathews, which is featured in a new 12 minute "documentary" on Kerry produced by the Republican National Committee. This is how the RNC presents the interview:[2]

MSNBC'S CHRIS MATTHEWS: "Are you one of the anti-war candidates?"

KERRY: "I am - Yeah."

The real transcript of the interview reveals that the clip was doctored. Kerry was not trying to shift his position but actually reiterating his belief that President Bush made a mistake in the way he went to war. Here is the actual transcript:[3]

MATTHEWS: Do you think you belong to that category of candidates who more or less are unhappy with this war, the way it's been fought...Are you one of the anti-war candidates?

KERRY: I am -- Yes, in the sense that I don't believe the president took us to war as he should have, yes, absolutely.

mods, where are you?

What's wrong with me posting my thoughts as well as an article?? This is correct behavior according to Brand. I posted my thoughts and that's what I was told to do. Nothing wrong here, so go away punchTheDummy.

I think we'll need an official ruling on this then because that's not the way I understood it to be. That is NOT what Brand told me.

Is there a way to lock Balloon in that one thread?

12th August 04, 04:58 PM
Shuma, could you make this thread pathetic?

12th August 04, 06:10 PM
I can make it sad, amazing, tall/wide, huge or even painful. But you really, really don't want to see "pain".

Ok guys seriously listen for a minute. I agree that ballonknot can be an idiot at times with his BS threads. HOWEVER, I feel that as long as he is contributing his 2c to his threads and links, then he can post any political shit he feels like. I joined the military to give people the freedom to do just that, and just because I dont agree with them doesnt mean I can delete his posts or ask they be removed. If you are so against these threads - DONT POST IN THEM!!! seriously, if the thread got to 1000 posts, that tells you that it is interesting enough that some people are reading it. The same freedom that gives you the right to dissagree with these threads are the same rights that allow them to be posted.

I don't see anything wrong with creating a new post. Perhaps this didn't fit in another thread. Maybe Balloon wanted to draw more attention to this post so he created a whole new thread. As long as he posted his own words along with the article i dont' see what the big deal is.

on another note, where did chupacabra's avatar come from?

12th August 04, 08:45 PM
After seeing balloon spam punchingdummy in another thread. I gotta return the favor. Shuma, if you wanna make it sad, go ahead dude, if not that's fine by me too. I appreciate your talents.

Here, I'll post something, If any of ya'll wanna follow, go right ahead

This is really not a thread worth ruining. At best you're going to catch more Hell than our anus-obsessed hippie friend.

I dont find you funny hawkeye, but I can appreciate your willingness to offer retribution on another members behalf. I just dont think this situation applies.
