    You brought it up in this thread, not me.

    You asked my opinion, I gave it and then changed attempted to get the thread back on track. Do you have anything else to add about Ridge or do you want to start a different thread about whatever other "theories" you may have?

    I made all my points.
    I'll just end with this:
    Since Ridge has now joined many other former Bush Admin. personnel in accusing Bush personnel of crimes, & since you now admit that the GOP is an untrustworthy party, willing to do anything to retain power, (including backing a mentally ill man for President)......Don't you now agree that no one should listen to a single word the GOP says about anything?

    And when refuted by the guy who wrote the book, still would rather believe the publisher because it falls in line with what you believe about Bush. When proven wrong you attempt to throw out slogans after making assumptions about the person you're debating with. Classy.

    Edit:
    I hate it when I respond before the other guy edits his posts. ****.

    Since Ridge has now joined many other former Bush Admin. personnel in accusing Bush personnel of crimes,
    Except that he didn't.

    & since you now admit that the GOP is an untrustworthy party,
    What? Since when does not voting for a guy mean that I find his entire political party to be untrustworthy?

    willing to do anything to retain power, (including backing a mentally ill man for President)......
    I suspect that he is. I'm not sure of that. And it's hardly as though the entire party was behind him anymore than all Democrats were for Obama.

    Don't you now agree that no one should listen to a single word the GOP says about anything?
    Do you realize how crazy that sounds?

    Last time:

    The publisher was quoting Ridge (you can deny, hide & try to change the subject, but that is a fact)

    Going to the gym now.

    No. They weren't. They summarized what he said to make it into something the press would want to repeat.

    They (publisher) gave direct quotes from Ridge....not summaries.
    Being able to admit when you are wrong takes integrity & maturity which you appear to lack, imo.....At least in this case.

    Direct quotes like, "I was never directed to do so no matter how many analysts, pundits or critics say so." The only people saying Bush tried to use the alert system politically are his publishers. Perhaps you should take a bit of your own advice. Now go ****ing work out already!

    I asked you three times to post the accusation and all three times you declined.
    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.

    He says he was "Pressed" to do so, which is a crime. He was never "Directed" to meanuing "Ordered" to....but "Pressed" to is still a felony, regardless of the word game you are trying to play. It depends on what your definition of Is ..Is!

    & thanks....I did just come back from the gym.
