A guy has a right to video his life. George Bush must have been told not to do the same thing. Imagine what we'd see...maybe some hard evidence that he didn't go AWOL when he was supposed to be in Alabama, or perhaps some video of his exploding frogs with firecrackers, or experimenting with drugs and alcohol, or pitching temper tantrums as he does now when a reporter gets after him about his relationship with Ken Lay...these are real examples of bravery and courage.
The fact is Kerry was in Vietnam and saved an American soldier's life. Others claim he saved their lives also when he took out a rocket launcher-carrying Cong.
Bush? He ducked the war of his generation, opting for a much safer job at home. While Kerry has all these fine veterans standing by his side, Bush can't find anybody that even remembers him in Alabama.
As to whether or not John Kerry wasted military time or resources, I doubt it very much, although I have no real knowledge of that...it makes no difference to me as a voter.
I know what kind of president GWB is, and I don't want to see four more years of the same or worse...I'm willing to give John Kerry the chance to help America get back what it has lost: the goodwill of the rest of the world, a fair income tax, a healthy economy, a way out of Iraq, freedom of speech as it was intended by the Constitution's founding fathers, separation of church and state, and a nation coming together as one, not being torn apart by spite, bitterness, visciousness, and purveyors of lies and half-truths.
