Holy Cow..

So… for my first paper for college, I was scared to death. Worried sick that I was going to screw it up. Aric over at A Rage of Squirrels edited my first draft for me, and basically showed me what I should be doing with a paper for college. I fixed this draft, and then I took the second draft in for workshop, everyone had great comments that helped me out and when I got done, I was pretty happy with the paper overall. I was figuring I’d get a C or a B and revise it after I got the teacher’s comments back so I could bring that up to an A.

Iraq wasn’t about 9-11. It was about preventing another one. Kerry totally missed that point. Bush has made an excellent rebuttal point, “Anyone who thinks the world is not a safer place with Saddam Hussein out of power does not have the judgment to be president.” Kerry nodded his head as the president said this.

Bush makes an excellent point about the war on terror being something that is fought on many fronts, not on a single front and to not understand that is to not understand the war on terror.

Kerry just commented on how Bush sent men to Iraq without the body armor they needed… but um..… [Read More]
