Re: Sign Petition Against Kerry's statement on Venezuela
26 Mar 2004
Forbes Kerry is the most dangerous man in America because he pretends to be one thing while he is really another. With Bush we all know he is a dropout a drug addict and a dope. Kerry on the other hand is romancing the left while feeding the right. John Kerry will smile to your face while he builds a pipeline across wild lands and sends the American war machine against third world freedom fighters.

Venezuela is run by a dictator. Plain fact.
Don't believe me? Read this article.
Venezuela troops used torture.
Troops are accused of beating and kicking detainees...
Venezuelan ombudsman German Mundarain has said security forces tortured some protesters who were detained during recent anti-government demonstrations. (See Article Link.)
Why is it...someone who never lived in Venezuela, is siding with an right-wing paramilitary dictator?
Any one who reads world news knows the people of Venezuela got screwed on their last petitions ballot to have a new presidental election. Chavez is an ego tripped dictator. He has no knowledge of true democracy. (Changing the Constitution for his ills...) If he knew democracy, he wouldn't have disqualified over 500,000 signatures last referendum. Right?
ANSWER is wrong on Venezuela.
As for Kerry? Stay the hell out of other countries business! (That includes Bush's trouble makers too!)
Reign of the Mayberry Machiavellis
27 Mar 2004
On Sunday, Hagel, a maverick Republican with a reputation similar to McCain's for speaking his mind, criticized the Bush campaign ad that called Kerry "weak on defense." Speaking on ABC's "This Week," Hagel said: "The facts just don't measure [up to] the rhetoric."

He said it is unfair to isolate one or two votes over a 19-year career to make such a sweeping assessment of Kerry. "You can . . . take any of us, and pick out the different votes, and then try to manufacture something around it," he said. ...

... While McCain and Hagel provided Kerry short-term cover, Clarke's comments could prove more damaging to Bush in the long run, Republican and Democratic strategists said. Clarke, who had a front-row seat to White House deliberations over al Qaeda and Iraq, is making the same case Kerry is -- that Bush could have done more to prevent the Sept. 11 attacks and should have done more to hunt down Osama bin Laden. A top GOP strategist, who insisted on anonymity because he represents clients with interests before the Bush administration, said Clarke's comment also built Kerry's case that Bush may have something to hide.

In a broader context, Clarke sounded concerns expressed by O'Neill and John J. DiIulio Jr., the former head of the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives: that Bush is running an insulated White House driven by conservative ideology and politics. DiIulio, the first former Bush official to publicly criticize the president, said in a 2002 magazine interview that "it's the reign of the Mayberry Machiavellis."
