Thread Name: BS: Bush national guard performance
Subject: RE: BS: Bush national guard performance
Kendall, you know damn well that lawyer opened court sealed documents to uncover a drunk driving arrest in 1970. He should have been disbarred and it is my understanding his license to practice is under review. There is no honor in making a hero out of a scumbag.
Incidently as always, the liberals are ignoring facts that perhaps they should pay attention to. Someone mentioned that he scored a 25% on his pilot apptitude, but failed to mention that he scored a 95% in officer abilities, one of the higher marks the unit had seen upon entrance (evidence of future presidential greatness, perhaps?).
I would suggest reading the Washington Post article linked above as it destroys most of the comments made above. Even though he failed to make his drills towards the latter part of his tour at the Guard, he excelled as a pilot, and in all phases of his training for three of the four year hitch. Incidently Gore did slightly more than 20 months total. And Bush's pilot skills in his single seater jet were praised by more than a few in the article (ain't facts a bitch?).
And by the way, if you are looking for bias in that article; as a Democrat flagship paper, the Post endorsed Gore... (ain't facts a REAL bitch?)
