What George Bush really did in Alabama.

The telling expose' of a pampered child who got a free ride.

Quote:
Linda Allison's story, never before published, contradicts the Bush campaign's assertion that George W. Bush transferred from the Texas Air National Guard to the Alabama National Guard in 1972 because he received an irresistible offer to gain high-level experience on the campaign of Bush family friend Winton "Red". In fact, according to what Allison says her late husband told her, the younger Bush had become a political liability for his father, who was then the United States ambassador to the United Nations, and the family wanted him out of Texas. "I think they wanted someone they trusted to keep an eye on him," Linda Allison said

He lies, he cheats, and kills. No he's not officially a criminal: He's the President.

Enjoy.

Oh look, Salon.com. Weren't you just talking about "outrageous slander" in another thread?

Too late. The standard has been set by Bush's assassins.

You don't think Bush's past has plenty of steaming shit just aching to be exhumed? All it takes is a committed, pissed off Democratic party to start to push and push and get the talking heads talking and the books coming and we'll see who has the uglier skeletons in their closet.

Bush is a drunk and a coke head and a deserter.

It's your world. We're just going to revel in it.

And, please tell us, how many times you've posted The Wall Street Journal Opinion as a primary source? The difference between the WSJ and this is the Salon article is 'actually' a primary source, not an opinion. It is a journalistic piece based on an interview of someone who knew GWB back then. It is not a thirdhand interpretation of events. It is a second hand telling which includes many quotes from the firsthand source.

Like this:
Quote:
Allison's account corroborates a Washington Post investigation in February that found no credible witnesses to the service in the Alabama National Guard that Bush maintains he performed, despite a lack of documentary evidence. Asked if she'd ever seen Bush in a uniform, Allison said: "Good lord, no. I had no idea that the National Guard was involved in his life in any way." Allison also confirmed previously published accounts that Bush often showed up in the Blount campaign offices around noon, boasting about how much alcohol he had consumed the night before.

But it's not what Salon says. It's what an old time Republican says that's important. How can you refute that? Sure, only a liberal publication would print it, but it's her words. You can't blame them on anyone else.

Sarcasm aside, Scott, you would vote for George Bush if he made a national address explaining that Jewish people used the blood of babies to make matzos, using the severed hand of your mother to point at symbols on his wallchart.

I want proof Kerry completed his guard service.

Kerry went off active duty on January 3, 1970. He was put on standby reserve on 1 July 1972. He was finally discharged from the Navy on February 16, 1978.

Do we have any proof, from 1970 to 1972 that Kerry honored his reserve commitment?

It doesn't matter what Bush did during his youth. He could have done anything at all, really. As long as he found Jesus and repented his earlier days, it's seen as some kind of virtue in middle America.

Why? He left active duty for reserve duty. What is wrong is asking if he honored that commitment?

I'll answer this in a couple of days because I'd like to give you time to research this yourself.

A couple of questions you can look into (in know when you find the answers my response will be abundantly clear):

What is the definition of "standby reserve"?

What happens to a service member when they leave "active duty"?

What is the minimum service requirement for all military members?

What is the minimum service requirement of military officers?

I googled these myself to see if the answers where easily available--they are. If you'd like, you could ask a military recruiter how it works. Give'm a call and ask about the eight year thing, and when in the service when does one get their DD214.

The answers are readily available if you take the time to look. The stuff you posted was gibberish to say the least.

Would that virtue be forgiveness? FSCKING religious zealots!

Sorry Nick, you lose. Will you have the courage to come back and admit that you've seen the proof you've requested?
