I'm sorry, but I don't find Michael Moore, or his fans, remotely credible.

This guy is a loser. have no clue how any of you can like this guy. He's so deceptive it's not even funny. He plays with people's emotions to get people to listen to him, and you can tell he's putting on an act half the time.

As if that's not bad enough, he's an outright liar. Nothing he says can be trusted because he just lies so much. The worst part is that people love this guy!! He's so friggin popular and so many people can't get enough of him.

Well, I honestly think those people are ignorant (yup. Sorry but that's how I feel). They choose to follow him simply because he bashes Bush. So many Bush haters are willing to jump onto the Moore bandwagon, and not question one thing he says. Why should they? He's on the same side they are, right? Even if his main message is the same as yours you need to question him!!!

He's so popular with the media too. The liberals in hollywood (ok uhhh... everyone in show business pretty much) loves him too. Just a couple night ago he was on Jay Leno and they loved him . I was about to throw my tv out the window. Conan O'brien (who I really enjoy) constantly has guests on who show their hate for Bush. The crowd's always cheering along too. Bush's biggest battle in this election is his oppositions sheer ignorance. These people are perfectly happy being lied to by morons like Moore. It's sad really. He's an outright liar and people LOVE him.

Moore qualifies as propaganda

I still don't think he's worse than the avarage add during the presidential election campaigns though


he'll make a great politician some day

Ditto for your average politician.

And Bush has never stretched the truth or mislead the nation at all.

Have you even bothered to research anything Moore presented in f/911? Or have you just read a couple reports where Moore stretched the truth and drawn your own conclusions from there? Yes, Moore has stretched the truth and lied in places. It does damage his overall credibility. HOWEVER, that does not mean that he hasn't made any good points.

There are legitimate reasons for disliking Bush, beyond being "Hollywood liberals." No one should be so married to a party line to be unable to see fault in their candidate or party or whatever.

And, I don't mean to open a can of worms or cause offense, but - you're 18. Trust me on this, your opinions on a lot of things will change in the next 10 - even 5 years. Not towards liberal views, necessarily, but you can be damn sure you won't have exactly the same views 5 or 10 years from now as you do now. Unless you live under a rock, which I assume you don't.

My annoying hippy feminist friend at work has his Stupid White Men book and I picked it up and flicked thorugh it the other day. I wouold have read it but a few pages in he starts on England and the Magna Carta after giving a huge rap, then says something like "But for God's sake, get yourselves a constitution or amendment."
It really pissed me off.
But we made up a new joke out of it.
What do you call someone who hates Bush AND Moore?

-A non American.

Oh great, another insane rightwinger jumping on us about how awful we are if we don't toe the official line on everything. Just what I needed to brighten my Friday night.

Are you from PLEBA too, Shart1780?

I'm sorry Shart1780 (actually, I'm not sorry), I'm just being the awful token liberal who will shortly be banned for getting too, what's the word, combative.

As far as I'm concerned, it's tit for tat K from the title even.

But I'm in a filthy mood. So maybe someone else will see it differently.

But dont let me or rules stop anyone from a good Bush/Moore bashing. I mean, I hardly care either way personally.

Michael Moore is the Ann Coulter of the left, it is no good trying to blast people who buy into this type of crap wholeheartedly because they will just label you a fascist or a pro-terrorist. Best to just read up and have some decent ammunition for your arguments.

Angela, that line is simply brilliant, I may have to steal it

Nope...I am going to keep my mouth shut...




Ummmm....Welcome to the forum........Its nice to see someone so young come here and express themselves. Don't let anyone get you down, you can like U2, and Bono's causes, and still be conservative despite the ramblings in here.


And MIchael Moore lies....and its not a documentary.
