    To me it it is confirmation of what some of us thought of Bush all the long. One would have hoped on his "Christian" conversion that he would have grown some compassion.

    It bothers me most when "conservatives"politicians that never spent a day in the shoes of the middle class life growing up, speak of understanding what we need in relief.

    I wish there was some way for us to force politicians that want an office to have grown up in households that lived from paycheck to paycheck. To be part of the 44 million people that have no health insurance. To be part of the workforce that doesn't see overtime pay for hours over 40 hours. To have wondered where the tax cuts went, when they only saw $300 back in their paycheck.

    All the while the politico's state that the economy is on the rebound. But for whom? Unemployment down? What about the thousands upon thousands that have just given up getting a job, and are no longer counted? If you are with an oil company or a government contractor that got a no-bid contract; then you have little worry under the current administration.

    Rep. Cox seems to be someone to watch out for in 2008 maybe.

    If Bush is indeed as described, what does that say about roughly half of the American people who support him?...who exactly is the biggest idiot here?

    Like Kerry? Travelled Europe as a kid... is extremely wealthy through marriage twice (not hard work, unless courting Ms. Thorne or Ms. Heinz was hard), has several lovely mansions (not sure how many). Yeah, he can relate to the average person perfectly.

    Are you applying a double-standard Chip? :)

    Kerry doesn't campaign by portraying himself as an awshucks down-home good ol' boy.

    Who does?

    I've come to the conclusion that the only time Republicans hate wealth is when Democrats have it.

    It is not whether one has money, it's what one does with the money and access. FDR had a lot of money but he cared about the millions out of work, the rampant poverty amongst the elderly etc.

    We can see from the example above that Bush thinks poor people are lazy and the born-rich earned it. Bush's tax policies are for George Bush and Dick Cheney. Kerry's tax policies are for the rest of us.

    And don't beleive the crap about Bush cutting middle class taxes. He put it all on credit. Who is going to have to pay back these new huge debts? - the middle class. Sure Bush acts all down home but nothing he does really benefits the people he is imitating.

    Ahh George W. Bush.... The definition of the gentleman's C.

    I wonder what grade Professor Tsurumi gave Bush.

    To link his education with his wealth? I'd say he got rated Crude.


    In response to the "Kerry's wealthy too!!" contingent....

    If we eliminate money and look only at behaviour what do we have?

    Dubyaw has consistently proven himself to those charged with educating or employing him as disrespectful, lazy, arrogant, cowardly, duplicitous, calous, self serving, jingoistic, vengeful, etc., etc.

    Kerry, by contrast has showed time and again through those same groups' comments to be forthright, courageous, eloquent, compassionate, insightful, wise and worldly.
