Further evidence for how Bush got re-elected

I usually try to be open-minded about things. Unfortunately, you can't say the same for everybody in this world.

Check this article out.

Nothing scares me more than the fact that people in the USA still think Obama is an unpatriotic Muslim who believes everything taught by Reverend Jeremiah Wright. Unless it's the people who won't vote for him because his name is one letter off from Osama.

Please America - STOP THE MADNESS.

    Oh, M, there are loons sitting out on the edges on all sides of our election. Seriously, I've found, in my experience, that 5% of any large crowd has no idea whatsoever (got that mostly from watching "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire", when the contestant would ask the audience for the answer. Without fail, 4 - 6% would come back with the stupidest choice available. I've found that it holds true in almost any setting, though.)

    So, unless the loonies are heavily armed, usually nothing to worry about. Of course, some of ours are, and I apologize in advance if any of them get out of hand :-)

    Oh, wait a minute! You were talking about GWB, weren't you? Sorry! My bad!

    Just an opinion, and ironically, not an overly educated opinion.

    I have to wonder if the Americans' willingness to believe outrageous propaganda such as this (and throughout recorded history) has anything to do with their consistent disregard for decent public schooling.

    We have our faults, to be sure, but we basically invented the concept of public schooling in the 1600's. If it wasn't for us, there might not be any at all. Now, that's not to say that some other folks haven't taken the idea to a better place than we have. But to say we've had a consistent disregard for it is, IMVHO, ludicrous.

    As for believing outrageous propaganda, we are hardly alone in the world. I daresay that, pound for pound, we are probably a more skeptical people than most. Just because we have a less-than-brilliant lunatic in The White House doesn't mean that the majority of Americans are buying all of the crap which spews forth from there.

    Sorry. It's the anniversary of our independence. I tend to get a bit edgy concerning attacks upon our history :-)

    It's so unfortunate that the USA is getting such a poor reputation globally - Bush has definitely hurt the American image. The reason I've been so interested in the election this year is because I see the chance for our Southern neighbours to revitalize their country, improve their international relations, and start on a path to good things again.

    With the schooling issue, it's hard for us Canadians to not accuse the USA of having a lackadaisical attitude toward education when ugly things like George Bush and Miss Teen USA open their mouths and stick in both feet. But of course, Sully, you are correct to say that this does not reflect the majority of Americans. I understand where Jai is coming from though - it's hard to step away from that stereotype.
