    So... everything that Bush said about spreading democracy was bullshit.

    He'd install a brutal pro-American dictator in Iraq in a heartbeat were it politically correct. Instead, we're just going to feign democracy.

    So sad.

    If I said that you would support installing a treasonous war criminal as the president would you agree? Bet you voted for Kerry.

    Anyway...... from your source
    Unless you are a brain dead idiot who is currently suffering from a blond moment in an autistic state, you will note that even if the alleged support happened: "were conducted by retired C.I.A. officers and other non-government personnel, and used funds that were not necessarily appropriated by Congress." That means, for the ESL among the left, that the Government did not do it.

    We planned for it, just like we planned for nuclear war. Neither occured.

    Wow......covert support ........ any idea what this entails exactly. I certainly didn't get "brutal pro-American dictator" from this description.

    How many "brutal, pro-American dictator" types were running in the Iraqi election?

    How much do you want to bet, smart-ass?
    I'd wager more money that I voted for Badnarik. :p:

    I'd also bet that you think you have me "all figured out". . . well guess what. You don't.

    The point is Bush talks out of one side of his mouth about "free elections", and then out of the other side he tells his folks to influence the election.

    That's a point? I don't know of anyone politically active who does not try to influence elections. Every poster on every political board most certainly does with every post. Like you and your incessant Bush-bashing. You aren't trying to influence others and turn them against Bush with your version, or perversion I should say, of events?

    Yet Bush doing it is somehow wrong. Yeah, you're REAL hard to figure out. :rolleyes:

    Guess both of us lose our bets, you voted bad, and I never tried to figure you out. You will have to post more intelligently before you are worthy to be "figured out". The elections were free, any actions were privately taken, hmmmm sounds like a special interest group or a PAC. Guess they really are getting an American style government.
