[Comment] Re: If Veterans Make Good Presidents…

Hi Lee. I'm always glad to have a level-headed argument. The "anyonebutbush.com" was mostly a joke. And I've never watched more than 5 minutes of Larry King.
<br><br>
I've never supported Bush, but mostly because I disagree with the majority of the Republican platform (not that I agree with all of the Democratic platform, certainly).
<br><br>
Bush's genuine clarity of right and wrong is precisely what scares me the most: if you don't agree with what he says is right, than you are wrong. And with Ashcroft as his right-hand-man it is increasingly dangerous to be wrong in the USA.
<br><br>
The way many issues have been handled (from Conservation to the Microsoft judgement) I've only become increasinly convinced that Bush does not represent me.
<br><br>
I don't particularly relish the idea of Gore handling the 9/11 disaster, I don't think the protracted aftermath would be so bad as it is now. Bush's policies have put the USA in a difficult position internationaly. Perhaps if he had stopped at Afghanistan it would have been alright. We'd still be fighting all the "foreign terrorists" that are now in Iraq – but we had good international support in Afhanistan including several Arab nations.
<br><br>
Finally: "Everything else is secondary to our security". No, I cannot agree with that. Do I need to remind you of Benjamin Franklin's quote?
