Neo-Cons For Kerry

Post by Jeffrey Dav » Thu, 28 Oct 2004 23:19:19


After years of slagging American liberals, who'd a thunk it that
Christopher Hitchens, that Trotskyite turned Conservative[1], has
endorsed Kerry. The reasons: Bush's horrifying incompetence.

[1] Most of the original neo-cons came from the farthest left, out of
the shadow of Leo "What a Headache!" Trotsky and [blithering ijut]
Herbert Marcuse.

Christopher Hitchens has not, and never has been, a "conservative,"
neo or otherwise.

So many people will vote for Kerry because "anything is better than
what we have". Those people will never have anything better no matter
who wins - or if no one does. Losers will always be losers.

as someone else has said about our current political climate, "you get
what you deserve" it's seeming more and more like Politics is
degrading to student council electioneering and away from the grown-up
world. Calling Kerry Liberal isn't a bad thing, he is one, but trying
to make it seem like it's a character flaw does more harm than good.
Incompetence isn't what bugs me about this current administration,
what truly bugs me is no one is grown up enough to actually say yep we
made mistakes, and I'm to blame... there's toomuch CYA and not enough
Accountability here, something that the previous Administration was
willing to do. and the one before that too.  it was something I
remember when GWB was Governor of Texas when he said there are no
death row cases where they are not guilty... he places way too much
trust in the hands of others and allows them to run the country/state.
Again I thing Harry S. wishes he wasn't decomposing so much so he
could rise up and slap some sense into this President. the Buck just
keeps moving here...

That's a good post.

This administration is no more or less incompetent than any other. I
agree with owning up to mistakes but one has to understand when he
makes a mistake. I'm not certain the admin thinks they have

I don't think any human being could comprehend the complexities of
being president - he has to rely on the abilities of others. While he
has to stand up for the person who reports to him he has to critique
them for their errors - yet criticism should be in private.

Politics differs from other careers. The elected are supposed to
represent the will of the people. As long as they do that they can
really do no wrong. But that means the conservative South would have
to secede from the liberal north pretty soon.

Nope - Math with a minor in Science. Plus I taught Driver Training,
Coached (assistant) and was Band Director. As I recall my teaching
certificate authorized me to teach every major high school subject
(except Home Ec. and Agriculture). I graduated with 25-30 more quarter
hours than I needed in 3 years and one quarter. Had I stayed the full
4 years I would have had about 200 semester hours - but I got about
10-20 for being a Navy veteran (Phys. Ed., ROTC). But I never worked
while in college either.
