    See, you don't even recognize the inherent tragedy of that statement. How smart can you be if you only pay attention to news if it's an opinion by someone ignorant? This is exactly what I am talking about when I express concern over the dumbing down of our citizenry. DON'T praise or tune in to ignorance and it will stop being profitable. If it stops being profitable then it will be one less outlet of ignorance perpetuated. Apply that to all ignorance and pretty soon we can get back to praising intelligence.

    I just don't get why people have to abuse the English language to criticize Bush. It's not like there's not many, many issues thast Bush can be legitimately criticized about. But why the compulsion to abuse language to do it?

    BDS??
    They say it with such hostility... and are almost always completely unaware of what it means.

    Lie when dealing with liars?

    How can an objective onlooker know who is right?

    Should America recruit people to blow themselves up in markets in Arab countries?
    I am NEVER surprised at the frequency in which xians are hypocritical, in fact I'm only surprised when they actually do something or behave in a manner that is Christ-like.

    Jesus didn't teach that. I'll let you tell me which Commandment that breaks.

    It won't involve "CCD" or "Catechism".
    No I said it opens the door for me to take on his tactics. If I choose to or not that would be entirely my choosing.

    It's how you interpret Jesus's teachings. He taught me to turn the other cheek, His Old man only gave me two, so if you slap the second one then I'm free to slap back at will.

    a liberal black man or indeed anyone interested in being president of the united states would only have to be a more appealing candidate than his rival, which in this election was not much of a challenge.

    I'm sure that he is intelligent but I have yet to see ANY indication that the man is brilliant.

    well, that's not really relevant to this discussion.

    Actually I used that term well before Rush started to. Nice try though.

    You are a Democrat, therefore a member of the Democrat Party.

    I am a Republican; a member of the Republican Party.

    We shall use the accepted terminology because indiana grampas can't grasp neo-liberalism. They only understand liberal as leftwing and conservative as rightwing. In that case neocon is the new conservative who believes in American military might as a tool for global economic domination and regression of society and science.

    it is a social milestone certainly but does not indicate his abilities or intelligence to be superior to any other president's that I can see.
