Oh so one is free to choose when and if they will serve. But Bush is excoritated even though he did. Very logical.
And I'm sure the 50,000 dead US soldiers had different priorities, too. But they didn't get to run away overseas to avoid thier obligation.
Another tard who missed the previous 50 years of history due to excessive bong exposure.
Alright second president. I'm not sure that really makes it any better.
It matters to those of us who give a damn about this country, it's people and it's future.

Exactly. Like I said before, neither set of politicians is worth anything.
Really? I don't recall saying one damn thing about Bush. Maybe you better keep straight who the hell you're talking to, bub.
That was Dick Cheney's excuse for not serving. Thanks for helping to make my point.
You just tell me when war was declared, and you've got a point. Until then, you're just spouting right-wing bullshit.
There was never a declared war, and what Clinton did was legal. Get over it.
You conveniently missed the part where I didn't vote for the idiot. Nice.
Actually, it doesn't. The only folks the impeachment meant anything to were the right-wingers with an axe to grind.
It won't make one damn difference, to anyone, ever. Tough luck for the "tards" who think everything attached to the GOP is golden, and anything attached to the Democrats is evil. Useful idiots, more or less.
I thought she came up with a basic concept which was applied to Torpedo Guidence. I also heard that her idea is still being applied to phone technology today. What impressed me was that she gave the idea free to the U.S. Government.
"Don't shoot him, You'll only make him mad!"
This one I have to agree with! It was obvious going in that they didn't have the Senate votes to impeach and yet they persisted with their political Banzai charge. It looked stupid, and arrogant.
Bill Shuey registered Republican.
And left me with a desire to see them all unemployed, kind of like the swine in our state legislature who helped themselves to heaping amounts of the public treasury at 2 AM in July. Oh where is Mr. Moultard at a time like this?

I can't believe nobody mentioned Dirk Bogarde, He was in A bridge too far, and served in British military inteligence on opperation market garden, The subject of the movie.
Tim Holt spent some time in the military during WWII. I don't know which branch.

"Though Thank God it's not Gore or Kerry up there! "
Yeah, you know what they say about those Viet Nam vets. On the other hand, the national budget might look like something other than that of a coed in her first year away at college.
"> Maybe he had "different priorities"? And I'm sure the 50,000 dead US soldiers had different priorities, too. But they didn't get to run away overseas to avoid thier obligation. "
Or get five deferments from the draft, like Dick Cheney, who was the one to talk about his "different priorities".

Deferments are legal. What Clinton did was not, whether he was prosecuted or not.

Of course they haven't YOUR war record, but they managed to get through their service and Viet Nam. Bush couldn't even make it to a flight physical.
I decided to allow that George W. Bush *may* have actually not been a deserter as it was disclosed LONG BEFORE the Dan Rather story. I was called on that here, and thought; okay, give W the benefit of the doubt. Maybe he did serve with the Alabama ANG, although there are no documents that support this.
So out of courtesy, I'd ask that you also discount the Swift Boat allegations about Kerry's record. Kerry did, after all, go to Viet Nam, and did serve there. At least we know he showed up and was not a deserter, whatever his actions there were.
As a matter of quid pro quo, let's not cast stones at Kerry's record until Bush's can be established with any sense of accuracy.
Gore also was THERE; Bush never went to Viet Nam at all.
So let's recap what we know, rather than what the propaganda pushes:
Bush: never went to Viet Nam, never saw live fire against an enemy Gore: went to Viet Nam, saw live fire, shot back with a camera (etc) Kerry: went to Viet Nam, saw live fire, shot back with deadly force.
Can anyone reasonably dispute these three statements of their records?
