    Texans for Truth is an organization tied to MoveOn. Guess what they are doing? Speaking out against Bush's record. Sound like a bunch of copycats to me...and a very desperate attempt for the Kerry campiagn.

    Well I can certainly see where they have a legitimate case in going after GW's National Guard records - again. After all, wasn't it George Bush who spouted "Elect me because I served in the Guard"?

    Then again, I could be wrong. I forgot to take my dementia medication.

    This just seems so lame. Bush has talked about the issues and it doesn't seem that there is too much interest anyway since he hasn't spouted off about it the way Kerry has.

    True. And to paraphrase kerry - the honorable discharge speaks for itself.

    What a load of shit. Nobody is going to vote on whether Bush was in the guard or not, and nobody cares. This is the kind of stuff that might have been relevent in 2000, but now only 4 years in Bush's life matter.

    You should tell your boy Kerry that.
    He or at least his campaign seem to be the ones making it an issue.

    Kerry and company steal everyone's talking points and slogans contantly. Ron Regan Jr's "Dad didn't wear religion on his sleeve" comment. John McCain's "all hat no cattle" comment, Howard Dean's "wrong war,wrong time" comment. Does this man ever think for himself? Now they are stealing the swift boat slogan??...pretty lame if you ask me.

    And I can't understand for the life of me why they would. These commercials look really stupid. Kerry has not done a good job campaigning at all,and I believe he will pay for it. It all looks so childish. I think trying to say Bush wasn't in the guard is foolish in itself because everyone knows he was. He didn't just make it up. I think the allegations against Kerry could be considered far more serious than a bunch of guys saying "I don't remember ever seeing George Bush". What does that mean? They never ran into him? Please. Bush had a jump in the polls because he addressed the issues that people want to hear.

    I'm not sure why you think it would have been any more relevant in 2000. But I agree, there is no issue here about GW's Guard service. He isn't running on it.

    So why do you suppose that the Democrats can't figure that out?

    I'm guessing, not trying to speak for PJ. Think he was referring to the fact that GW now has 4 years as CIC behind him. It's up to the voters to decide how he's performed, for better or ill, their choice. In 2000 election, this may have been a relevant point, it was brought up, but we weren't at war, far from it, on the road to isolationism, which at the time, he reflected.
