    Understandable, not your fault - unless we want to amend the 26th amendment.

    I admit to voting for Bush in the general in 2000, but I voted for Badnarik in 2004. I couldn't in good conscience vote for Kerry. At least in 2008, we had two good, honorable men to choose from.

    Wow. Your profile says you are Very Conservative. Then you are very different then most other conservatives here, they mostly bash our President, while you, you actually respect him.

    Thats more than I can say for others on here.




    And on topic, I didn't really mind McCain, I just didn't agree with his Iraq, oil, or economic policies, and I couldn't stomach the idea of SArah Palin running the country when he finally dies of old age.

    I've always liked McCain and wish him nothing but the best. I wish it were him that got the nomination in 2000, and in hindsight, I bet many others think the same.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    There is a lot I don't agree with him on, but yes, I respect him. I think he is a good, decent man with a wonderful story and a great family. I admire the job they have done with their daughters and I hope mine are as level headed and well thought out at there age as Malia and Sasha are.

    And on topic, I didn't really mind McCain, I just didn't agree with his Iraq, oil, or economic policies, and I couldn't stomach the idea of SArah Palin running the country when he finally dies of old age.
    Though, McCain was right about the Iraq surge and warned about the problems with Freddie and Fannie before they collapsed.

    I felt that way then, and yes, I feel that way even now after eight years of Bush. I believe McCain would have handled the post 9/11 environment and Iraq better than Bush did.
