That's right, "The Body" may be back in politics.

Jesse Ventura is considering a run at the White House at 2008.

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,117215,00.html

He will run reportedly as an Independent (I can only hope he learns something from Nader this time around).

Still a long way away but an interesting peice of sepeculation concerning who will replace GW after his second term Big grin

Any thoughts about how he would do against Hillary?

He won't run, because he'd split the GOP vote that will try to unseat President Kerry in '08.

Not at all, L-188. It's a sight better than what we have now: Mr. I'm-Never-Wrong; Mr. "Bring-'Em-On".

Sounds pretty good to me. Better get used to it.

Go! And take B757300, JeffM. Commander rabb, and Jcs with you-and any other mindless lieutenants of the far right wing of this country. The less of you here, the better off the country will be.

The more I find about Kerry, the less I like him.

I can only hope the rest of the country sees the same things I do.

Why? I'd rather be brutally honest. And I meant it.

If they do, chief, we don't stand a chance in hell with such a mindset.

That mindset has gotten close to 700 Americans KIA over nothing. And that's a complete dishonor to them.

Has also crossed my mind...makes me want to move to Indonesia to fly a/c for a few years! Just like clinton, I couldn't use the title "President" to describe him. I guess I'd feel how all those liberals feel now  Big grin

Fine, DeltaGuy, leave. We're better off without fair-weathered Americans like yourself, who can only call someone who they agree with 100% "President". Shows the depth of your ignorance.

Don't let the door hit your butt on the way out.

Well, if Bush got re-elected, I would have some serious thoughts about other places in the world. I've got EU citizenship, so that's a possibility.

Kerry isn't the Messiah, no, but four more years of Bush and we'll either be the laughingstock of the whole world or the most hated nation in the whole world. Not very appealing options. Not to mention our country will be quite a place, and not in a good way.

And regarding the topic, that would be...well...different. What I'd really like to see is Arnold run (yes, I know he can't, but it would still be interesting)

I feel the same way for anyone who says that if Bush is re-elected. I'd rather you go. I'm not a fan of Bush, but neither am I a fair-weathered American. This is my country, and I'm here no matter who is president.

Proud to be a Republican....I don't agree 100% with the man, but it's more than the 1% I can say with clinton, or the .5% with Kerry....

Be proud to be a Republican. Fine by me. Proud of the disdain this man has heaped on the U.S.; proud of his responsibility for the deaths of over 600 American GI's who should be leading happy lives now; proud of that? Good for you.

Again, if you can't take American, no matter who is President, you can leave, and we're better off without you. So if Kerry is elected, well, we won't miss you here.

Alpha, get off your little soapbox. Disdain is subjective, he was not responsible for the deaths of any soldiers. They voluteered. Remember? They chose to serve, served well, and gave their life in that service.

I have never asked you.... did you ever serve your country?

Shoot, I am still pissed all those liberals who promised to leave the country after Bush was elected didn't.

I suggest that if the left wants to lead this country then their boosters such as Alex Baldwin should lead by example.

Not change his mind.

One of the most breathtaking statements I've ever read on here. Last count, over 600 in Iraq are because of his orders. But with this President, "The Buck Stops Here" apparently doesn't apply. He sent them on this ill-gotten war. Their deaths are on his hands, and no one else's.

They chose to serve..

They chose to serve; they did not choose to go to war. Bush ordered them. He is responsible for them dying for no good reason.

I have never asked you.... did you ever serve your country?

I would be a 4-F, because I have severe hearing loss in one ear, and moderate hearing loss in another-was born that way.

And let me ask you something: what the he is it to you if I did or
didn't? Does that mean that somehow I can't critisize?  Laugh out loud

Just curious. If you did or didn't, matters not. We have brave people that do. Seems you point the finger at President Bush for his service, and you claim hearing loss.

Funny how that works.

Their deaths are not anyone's hands. Those are the statements of an ignorant coward. I used to think you would not stoop so low. I guess I was wrong.

Bullshit, JeffM. You asked for a reason: you wanted to take me down with it. But since I have a medical reason why I can't serve, it took care of that. You didn't ask for the hell of it.

Seems you point the finger at President Bush for his service, and you claim hearing loss.

Would you like to see my $4000 pair of Miracle Ear hearing aids, friend?

WTFO? Last time I checked, we haven't drafted anyone since Nam...so these men and women VOLUNTARILY joined the service...be it a desk jockey, spec ops, tank driver, pilot, whatever....they knew they MAY be in harm's way, that they may be actually used for the mission they train for. One just doesn't join the military for a nice picnic and to chill on Air Force bases...so if they're in the military and aren't ready to go to war and fight and possibly die for the country, well, they're in the wrong business. And I can assure you, all 600 of those brave souls knew what they were doing..like it or not...noone was forcing them to join...and that's what makes the military so great.

I would be a 4-F, because I have severe hearing loss in one ear, and moderate hearing loss in another-was born that way.

So you didn't.....so don't dishonor their service by speaking for them. Before you ask about mine..I got 2 years left of college, and I'll be sitting at the front of the pointy end of the stick- air power...but that's beside the point.

And GWB as a second term President...gives me a chill of patriotism...proud to be an American  Big thumbs up
