I never mentioned Bush in my original posting, which was just about improving voting, but the moderator here did in his response, so I guess we are free to talk about him.
Here is one more thing to think about in regard to the president. From www.tbrnews.org .
>"There is a time bomb ticking away that will do little to assist Bush in regaining political heaven and that is the treatment of the dead GIs. It seems that the faulty electrical power at the Baghdad morgue means that many of the corpses of the fallen are badly rotten when they get back to the states and the DoD is now forbidding families to open the caskets. Of course they can’t do this but that doesn’t stop them from trying. Also, the desertion rates are skyrocketing, and former military personnel are refusing to be recalled in huge numbers. They can harass and arrest a few but not a few thousand. Some of these soldiers are talking at length and in public about the horrible, deliberate atrocities they and their fellows are wreaking on Iraqi civilians and all of this is being covered by the foreign, but not the domestic, media. Bush could care less if the dead soldiers were put into a wood chipper and used as fertilizer, has never gone to any military funeral and never will. The dead were merely a means to an end and nothing more."
I would think even if you think Mr. Bush is a great man and the cause is just, you would have a hard time explaining his lousy treatment of soldiers and their families, the repeated recalling of honorably discharged servicemen and his refusal to attend a single military funeral. Is this all just "liberal propaganda", "lies and personal attacks"? Is Bush in fact treating soldiers and the dead with respect?
It is obvious they need all the good men and women they can find over there. I would hope anyone who believes in Bush, God, and fighting mini-Hitlers wherever they pop up on the planet will join the military and help out.
