Is it my imagination- or was the Democratic convention only aired on one non-cable channel that being PBS? I was surprised to see only one channel airing the Republican convention tonite.
I did not know what to post this comment under. Did anyone see mayor Guiliani’s speech? (forgive my mispellings at this late hour) I kind of got goosebumps when he talked about Sept 11, 2001. One thing he said really hit me—-he said that within minutes of the jet crashes he grabbed the arm of the person next to him
police or fireman or I don’t recall exactly who—-he said he was very glad that Bush was at the helm in this crisis (versus the other pre-election candidate- wording mine) This got me because that is exactly what I said on the day of Sept. 11, 2001. I felt as if God had been answering our pre election prayers…..for He knew what lay in the road ahead.
This also makes me think—-our priest yesterday noted the 64 days left before the election—-that makes time for 7 novenas- he said any simple prayer for our country and the election will suffice as way to pray for our country. Good advice- pray for our country.August 31, 2004 at 9:26 am #3342
I think that any serious person would have to concede that Kerry is now in very serious trouble. It is not hard, considering the majority of the polling data to see a rout in the making.

Not that I supported Gore at the time, but what did Bush do that Al Gore would not have done? How do you know Gore wouldn’t have done a better job handling the situation? I don’t really understand your comments.August 31, 2004 at 11:57 pm #3347
Good call to question me Jon. The hour was late- I knew I wanted to ask about the convention- I really had no idea how my comments came across.
Yet I really can not give you a concrete response as to why I commented that I felt the same way as Mayor Guiliani-the feeling of hope because Bush became president before Sept 11. 2001 and not Gore. It is a very strong gut feeling, ( gut feelings don’t make sense to anyone outside the faith world I guess) . I do feel though that it stems from the way the Democrats handled the whole Clinton perversion in the oval office. (yes I know we all are sinners and make poor choices- but the way it was handled by the Democrats just gave me no sign of hope for the way they would lead or mislead our country in years to come.)
I guess that brings us back to the election problem facing faith filled people-vote for the lesser evil? Abortion? War? Capital Punishment? Social responsibilty? :” title=”Question” />
I do not agree with capital punishment any more than our Holy Father the Pope does,—-however it is not a sin according to our Catechism.(?) :” title=”Question” />
And the war- just or not just? that is a tough question for us all to sort out. I look at what Saddam Hussein has done to his people- I feel a social responsibility to do something
but as with Bush—-this is NOT a popular view to hold. The war is a mess- but isn’t it just as ‘wrong’ to stay out of it?? :” title=”Question” />
Well as you can see—-I am trolling for comments ……….. ” title=”Confused” />September 1, 2004 at 2:38 am #3348

I think you can observe Gore’s words and actions over the last 3 years to see that he lacks the temperance, civility and ubderstanding to be President.
What Gore would not have done, we can surmise from his record.
He would not have ubited us.
He would not have inspired us .
He would have not adequetly defended usSeptember 1, 2004 at 2:59 am #3349

Well, I have not been following him at all since the 2000 election, but I do recall some of the presidential debates where he lost his temper several times. That was very unimpressive to me.
I think Bush did do a good job during and immediately after September 11, 2001.

You mean defended us from all those weapons of mass destruction? :rolleyes:September 1, 2004 at 4:06 am #3350
Okay it’s late again for me—-and duh I still have no computer savy (using the quote thingy- )
People comment about ‘finding’ no weapons of mass destruction. Am I wrong here-didn’t they uncover mass graves of Saddam’s own people who had been gassed to death? What more evidence would the world need to know if he would make, aquire, or use this sort of weapon again?
