Edwards know the quality of a good haircut, but hasn't a clue about any cost/benefits idea as long as it looks pretty. That, my dear people, just screams Congress and big government bureaucracy. What a pretty ménage à trois.
Edwards is a fast learner. In just a few years he has made Kerry's flip-flopping look small and using that cost/benefit thingy, Edwards has gold plated his flip-flops which makes them look prettier.
Edwards knows economics better than us. He blackmailed large corporations into paying his clients huge sums of money, got his beak wet channeling dead children for a part of the payoff and then invested it in off shore hedge funds which invested it in pirate loot making even more money. That is really understanding how an economy works!
Edwards understands the issue of poverty. For $55,000 he'll clue you in.
Edwards understands family values. Between the pools and the basketball court he has been able to grasp the real meaning of hearth and home. The indoor pool was just the right temperature. Edwards is modest enough not to reveal whether his grasp was grasped at the DC mansion or the one in NC.
Edwards has a fair tax plan for both Americas. He also has one for himself in the Cayman Islands with his pirate loot. To him that is fair.
Edwards will defend America best. To pay tribute to America's fallen soldiers he advises people to make signs with “SUPPORT THE TROOPS - END THE WAR” and display them along local parade routes for veterans. Oh, and take lots of digital pictures so he can display them on his website.
This is just a short list of why I support Edwards, Democrat, for President. He is our regular Joe Democrat. Just like his regular Joe Democrat peers in Congress, he's wealthy, a partisan hack, a flip-flopper extraordinaire, is better than us, knows more than us and is just pompous enough to explain our ineptness at understanding the American Dream.
If only Kucinich had had the foresight to screw people for his way to wealth, he now could rent Edwards as his Mini-Me, but, ah, there is still hope for an Edwards Kucinich ticket. I feel vapors coming on.
An atheist was walking through the woods.
"What majestic trees"!
"What powerful rivers"!
"What beautiful animals"!
He said to himself.
As he was walking alongside the river, he heard a rustling in the bushes behind him. He turned to look. He saw a 7-foot grizzly charge towards him. He ran as fast as he could up the path. He looked over his shoulder & saw that the bear was closing in on him.
He looked over his shoulder again, & the bear was even closer. He tripped & fell on the ground. He rolled over to pick himself up but saw that the bear was right on top of him, reaching for him with his left paw & raising his right paw to strike him. At that instant the atheist cried out,
"Oh my God!"
The bear froze.
The forest was silent.
As a bright light shone upon the man, a voice came out of the sky.
"You deny my existence for all these years, teach others I don't exist and even credit creation to cosmic accident."
"Do you expect me to help you out of this predicament? Am I to now count you as a believer"?
The atheist looked directly into the light, "It would be hypocritical of me to suddenly ask You to treat me as a Christian now, but perhaps You could make the BEAR a Christian"?
"Very Well," said the voice.
The light went out. The sounds of the forest resumed. And the bear dropped his right paw, brought both paws together, bowed his head & spoke:
"Lord bless this food, which I am about to receive from thy bounty
through Christ our Lord, Amen."
What was the environment that led President Bush to make war on the Iraqi government?
1991 - Post "Desert Storm"
UN’s Oil for Food program was corrupt and well known within governmental intelligence organizations
Illegal arms and military technology sales to Iraq by France, Germany, Russia, China and North Korea
UN mandated destruction of Iraqi chemical, biological, nuclear and long range missile programs
UN verification process begins
Enforcement of northern and southern no-fly zones in Iraq
1998 “regime change” authorization signed as law by President Bill Clinton
2001 – 2003
In his 2003 State of the Union address, Bush stated: “Some have said we must not act until the threat is imminent. Since when have terrorists and tyrants announced their intentions, politely putting us on notice before they strike? If this threat is permitted to fully and suddenly emerge, all actions, all words and all recriminations will come too late. Trusting in the sanity and restraint of Saddam Hussein is not a strategy, and it is not an option.”
Invasion of Iraq as part of the greater War on Terror
Introduction of a more moderate based democracy in the Middle East

In March 2003, about 40 nations announce the “Coalition of the Willing” to weigh military options and plans.
March 20, 2003 “Operation Iraqi Freedom” begins.
Monday morning quarterbacking is just as boring as office bitching. Neither accomplish anything good.
