Ok, so you want Bush swearing during an interview? try this:

1-"Pussy."
-George W. Bush, 1988, in response to a question about what he and his father are talking about when they're not talking politics.

2-"Fuck Saddam. We're taking him out."
-George W. Bush, March 2002, as reported in Time.

3-
And let us not forget:
"You no-good fucking son of a bitch, I will never fucking forget what you wrote."
-George W. Bush, to journalist Al Hunt in front of his 4-year old daugher, 1987.

4-Now far be it from me to judge one fuck from another, but swearing at a journalist in front of his 4-year-old daughter is alot worse than accusing a president of fucking up an interrnational policy.
Setting time and location are overlooked here.


In item 1 -
1988 12 yrs before he ran for President. Im not condoning the comment but he gave an honest answer, its how men talk sometimes.
Item 2-
"as reported in Time" means that somebody gave info to the magizine when GW was conversing w/confidantes in a close door meeting.

Item 3-
13 years before seeking the Presedency, big deal.

You see its easy to dig up dirt on ppl swearing Sharky, thats not the issue..If this is the best you can do -than fine, it's a relief.
And I would bet overall Kerry's mouth publicly is far worse than Bush's.

The current President swore 3 times directly or indirectly that were recorded publicly- in the last 15 years -"whoopie do".

Even Clinton had enough common sense while seeking the Presidency never to use the F bomb in a public interview..and THAT IS the ISSUE.

So, is it just the fact that they swore that bothers some of you, or is it the fact that he was condemning the actions taken by the administration through swearing that bothers you as well?

Even disagreement follows a certain decorum. Consider how we interact on this forum. We follow certain rules to maintain decorum. Government has its decorum. Kerry strayed. That's all.

Sort of like the decorum followed when people were called 'retarded' and you stated that Americans are better organisms than Canadians?

Hypocrisy leaves a bad taste in everyone's mouth, diamond.

Right. Honesty in the form of a four letter word has no place in Rolling Stone.

It's just a word. Four letters arranged in a certain fashion, a word meant to express anger in this case. You defended Bush when he made up words, when he botched words, and when he used the word 'crusade'. Well now it's time to attack the other side over a word.

by the younger posters here giving the candidate a pass shows how the youth of the nation are slipping and is a bit disconcerting.

thank u
db9
But its ok for you to tell other members of this forum to "fuck off" ?
What kind of example are you setting for the 'youth of the nation'?

diamond, do you know how old this rap about the "youth's morality slipping" is? I have some old history book that was written before WWII. In it there is a quote from a Roman writer from the first century of our era, who died in 65 A.D. or C.E. He wrote to the effect of "our ancestors complained, we complain and our descendents will complain that morality is dying, and everything is going from bad to worse". Not an exact quote as I can't find the damn book. But it's a 2,000 year old complaint. Since the complaint is the Antique From Hell, it's of questionable validity.

yes yes Verte and for nearly 6 millenia we jack ass kids have refused to listen and honor our parents..and ironically history has repeated itself .
Think about that for a moment.
Maybe its about high time we connect the dots and change for better and live our lives according to
the precepts principles and
The
Gospel
according
to
Diamond?
