Actually Bush got assigned to fly a decommissioned fighter jet that was never going to be used in service again. And remember, he went AWOL for a while, and that got quietly pushed aside.
Except I didn't ask about Bush, I asked about Obama. Deflect and dodge, deflect and dodge, the ol liberal mantra.

Beer sauteed onions? Hmmm. I usually make sauteed onions but never thought of using beer. I'll have to try that.

I LOVE Newsroom. The writing, acting, everything is done well. I don't have HBO and watched the first season for free On Demand. I gotta get HBO. It's worth it just for that series.

I know many people on this board won't understand that, but it doesn't change how we've lived our lives and choose to (even before we started dating).
We're not typical like most in the world.

Good morning Chitown regulars. Since this thread is still on my tracker, I've been reading the comments about our past and current presidents' military service, or lack thereof, whichever the case may be. I find some comments regarding Bush Jr. to be interestingly incongruous when it comes to the accusations of war mongering/draft dodging.

I'm just going to say this...I don't believe anyone loves war, and any president that was integral in US involvement in any war knew the negative ramifications it would have on our country. There were promises made, but we're still in Afghanistan. Getting involved is easy, extricating, not so much.

I will never disparage anyone who made a choice to serve, no matter what branch of the service they chose.

Thanks.

Yep, fear of the lord as described in a book written 3000-1650 years ago, by people with less worldly knowledge than today's average 3rd grader is the epitome of wisdom.

In the end, Sublime, I guess each of us will find the true answer.

Except I wasn't answering YOU, and I was answering a comment/question about Bush.

Just being a stupid retard, eh? Typical REpublican.

Bush didn't have a choice -- he had to serve. But thanks to a powerful and rich family, he was spared (same happened to many others in his position).

And he was itching to go to war! Haven't you read conservatives' own writings about those days before 9/11? Bush was just itching for any excuse he could come up with to get into Iraq.

I just ignore the posts when these lunkheads start with their political rants. It blows over eventually.

Didn't realize you were the expert and authority on that. My bad. And I always love how you pass off your opinions as facts.
