I'm all worked up and it's only 8:39am...it isn't shaping up to be a pleasant day!
So as I was driving into the office today, I was listening to my morning talk show that I listen to daily, and the DJ had Vanessa Kerry (John Kerry's daughter) on the phone talking to her. Well it just got me so stirred up because they were just talking in circles. Politics frustrate me to no end!! It doesn't matter whether you're a Democrat or whether you're a Republican, there will be definite "talking in circles" afoot!
I realize that Vanessa wants to defend her father, and she probably knows (obviously) much more fact about Mr. Kerry than we, the general public, would know; but she, along with every other politician in the world, couldn't even admit in the slightest fraction that her father might be wrong about some topics. The whole conversation was about the war on terror, the economy and education. She was bashing President Bush about the war and his motives. Well, like I mentioned in Ms. Nicole Maries section of this bulletin board, "everyone should read the 9/11 Commission Report", it clears up so many misconceptions and I believe it would help Ms. Vanessa Kerry to form her own opinion rather than taking on her father's opinion. The war on Saddam Hussein was not President Bush being a war monger, he went to war based on intelligence that was given to him. Now I do know that Mr. Bush is not completly blameless, I'll be the first to admit, he needed to use his own intelligence to decide whether it was the right time and whether we had enough funding and support to go to war rather than just rush in. And Ms. Vanessa was all over the economy say it was the worst economy since Herbert Hoover blah blah blah. (One thing I'm really tired of in politics, no matter what side, some one starts a little catch phrase, for example "our economy is at its worst since Herbert Hoover." and then everyone in that particular part completly runs it into the ground!) Ms. Vanessa could not admit that our economy was going into a recession in President Clinton's second term, ad that the attacks on 9/11 surely didn't help our economy. Our economy after 9/11 nearly came to a standstill, no one wanted to leave their home, no one wanted to buy anything. So to say that President Bush is to blame for the fall of our economy is entirely inaccurate. While again, I will be the first to admit, President Bush has tried to help the economy, he hasn't done everything in his power to make the economy one of the most important issues, along with the war on terror and security. All we've heard about our economy from Mr. Bush is like I was talking about earlier in this post, a bunch of "catch-phrases"...lots of talk, not much action.
Okay, I will now step down off of my soap box. Thank for listening to my rant, it feels good to vent at times.
