I respect your reasoning M'deer, but, yes I do have a PROVEN right to refer to Bush as a sexist - I've seen him on TV with my own eyes and have heard him with my own ears (they work well yanno!). And quite a few times I've heard him say deragatory remarks against Canada's primeminister Jean Chretien and against Canada as a whole. And no one insults my beautiful country!!!! I once clearly saw Bush roll his eyes at Jean Chretein - now that's uncouth and the camera caught him! So yes I do have the proof as I have seen and heard Bush's ill-educated views. And, I'm sorry but Bush's arrogance is very transparent, you'd have to be blind not to see it ooze from him. I also don't agree with his opinions on gun control or abortion (but that's beside the point). And just because he has been schooled doesn't truly mean that he is educated well about the world and I find that he knows nothing about Canada even though we are his neighbours - that's sad on his part really. I'm not the only Canadian who feels this way as many have seen and heard him say derogatory things against Canada and I've had this discussion with more people than I can count and the majority of them refer to Bush in the same way. My mother, her husband, my Canadian friends, my American relatives and friends, my British relatives and friends have ALL also heard and read the plethora of wrong things that Bush has said and done, so I truly hope that you or anyone here wouldn't even dare to call them liars either, because we are all basing our opinion on him on what HE has done. He's offensive, plain and simple. And although he is doing the best job that he can humanly do to defend his country against Iraq, and yes he is in the right, it's just hard for people to respect someone who is usually in the wrong. For once he's in the right.
Like I said, I respect his father Bush Sr., but, George Bush Jr. just really turns me off. And I agree with you that name calling is better left for five year olds...but trust me when I say that what I wrote was very tame compared to other views I've heard and read. That doesn't justify it, but, it's almost laughable what I wrote. Seriously M'deer you have a valid point and I do agree with most of what you say as you are an educated man and I have always admired you, but, I am no liar and I never just say things to stir things up, I have seen and heard Bush say many silly things and that's that. So yes these are my opinions and I share them with many others, but if Bush has done these wrongs then they become fact. If you want quotes, video footage or newspaper clippings then I'm sorry but I don't physically have them right now, but, I have my memory and I know what I've read, seen and heard. I know that I sound redundant, but, I must stress this point.
