    No previous president running for re-election would have survived the poor economic numbers and other issues that were dogging Obama in 2012.
    Equivocate much?

    The metric raised was if reelected

    Those tactics will be used with a vengeance in 2016. The MSM will have to try even harder, because of the damage Obama has caused.

    If I am going on assumptions, so are you. I have no party affiliation whatsoever. I am a conservative independent. It takes more then an "R" in front of a name on a ballot. I care somewhat which party wins the majority in congressional elections, but only because it can remove such extremist idiots like Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid from high positions of power. Other then that, I just vote for real conservatives. That does not include moderate morons like McCain or Jeb Bush. I was basing my opinion that you are partisan on your comments on Scott Walker. I do not see you as objective on Walker. I see Walker as a conservative populist non-establishment candidate.

I am sure anyone would be hard pressed to find requests for official leave in those files, even though at the time, I would have signed a request. Volunteering for Vietnam in those days would have been handled mostly at company level and if such a request was turned down, and paperwork for such would not have been filed and held into perpetuity. I have read at more then one source that Bush did attempt to volunteer for Vietnam. Six years after Bush left office, I don't care all that much whether you are convinced.
    OK, let's take this slowly.

    There is no piece of paper that documents Bush having volunteered for Vietnam. None. At the outset the burden of proof is on you and your man Bush.

    There would have been forms and people (that's plural) would have signed the forms including his CO. No one has ever stated that they signed or saw signed documents, including Bush's CO.

    What was it Bush volunteered to do in Vietnam? He's never said. No one has ever said. Why? Clue: It wasn't to fly F-102s.

    *** Big question *** When was it that Bush volunteered? What day? What month? Hell, I'll settle for what year?

    If Bush wanted to go to Vietnam why did he not enlist in the regular military? Trust me, it was not hard to do at the time.

    All you are giving me is "Bush volunteered for Vietnam". There is no proof, at all. None. In fact, I don't know if Bush even said that he volunteered. If you can't document it, if no one in his chain of command or in personnel ever recall it, if no one he served with saw him do it then it is an urban legend.

    Hell, there is still a reward for anyone who can recall seeing Bush serve his last year in the ANG. NO ONE saw him at drill. But gung-ho Bush couldn't wait to get to 'Nam.

    If Bush had wanted to ship over to Vietnam, he'd have been there. It wasn't difficult to do. LOL!

    Actually I am optimistic. Any mileage the left thinks they will get from exploiting Walker not having a degree will peak well before the race really gets started. The democrat party is very anal with opposition research. And this is apparently all that they can come up with. And if they did not see him as a threat to whoever the democrat nominee is, they would not bother. They are just hoping for another Jeb Bush who they see as another McCain. They are holding their guns on him now. But if he is nominated, they turn on him as bad as they did his brother.

    Let's take it fast. You do not have the foggiest clue what records are kept in regards to a soldier in a given unit volunteering. There are different levels. Even if he put it in writing, it would not necessarily still be available. Not every record, request, or memo is preserved in perpetuity, especially before the computer age. And many records that are were kept and filed are not necessarily available to the general public. Considering that Bush has been out of office for six years, you are getting a bit anal about wanting proof. Bush volunteered. You can believe it or not. I don't really care. And I never suggested that he wanted to go to Vietnam from day one. Few do. He wanted to be a pilot like his dad. Most who become fighter pilots do seek to be deployed in combat units. As for the alleged missing time...that is rumors. Do you even have the foggiest clue how national guard service works? Bush's commander stated that he had all the flying time, drill time, meeting time, etc that was required. It's obvious that your only real problem with Bush is the "R" that was in front of his name on the ballots.

    I hope you're right. But I'm pretty sure the Democratic machine has folks researching and trying to find any dirt, however minor, on every candidate the GOP is likely to put up for nomination. And they won't use much of that ammunition right now. But they will be weaving it into sound bites and talking points and they'll be ready to feed it to the media at the appropriate time to have major effect in the 2016 campaign. And the mainstream media will be more than happy to repeat it just as it is fed to them.
