Explain to me please what values Bush possessed?

pro-life (protect sanctity of life)
pro-guns (protect your family)
work your way through life (affirmative action)
abstinence programs (wait for marriage)
Iraq (stopping mass graves)
school choice- parents involvement in their child's education
child tax credit- helping working moms
national security- keeping families safe and sound in their own homes

Yes not everyone agrees with all of these stances but the man had conviction and compassion. He did what he thought was right for the country and did so honestly.

The only thing Bush values:



Kerry married Teresa Heinze for her money and they have hundreds of millions more than the Bushes ever will.

I don't think George Bush (or John Kerry for that matter) san appreciate the value of any but the largest denominations in that picture...

Gore lost Tennessee because the state changed, and he moved i the opposite direction. It's one of those situations where voters in TN may have been harsher on him because they knew he flip-flopped, and knew the old Gore. A voter in Maryland would know far less about Gore pre-1992.

It did move in the opposite direction but not by much. The south of the mid 20th century wouldn't vote for the democrats of today.

Gore lost Tennessee because of the NRA gun ads, the turning of the Republican tide, and that he didn't run a good campaign. He should have won Tennessee and Missouri, and he won't have needed Florida. He ran a foolish campaign.

Tennessee is in the South, all states in the South were solid red states, Al Gore is a Democrat. That's why.

Is this guy for real?  I have to say, the forum has gotten a lot better since 2008.
