Conversation With An Anti-Bush

I had such a fun conversation today, a conversation which demonstrated what, to me, is a significant difference between the Bush supporters and the anti-Bushes: intellectual depth.

For me, this difference has always been apparent, beginning with the Bush Lied crowd, then cruising on to the ridiculous arguments of Michael Moore:

Michael Moore

And now, as I suspect will continue to be the case for a long, long, time, I've had the most priceless conversation on a bulletin board with an anti-Bushie whom I'll refer to as "Lefty" (also as a contributor was a Bush supporter whom I will refer to as "Righty"):

From a news story: In Missouri, CNN's Dana Bash offers a "Bushism" from the president's rally yesterday. While discussing malpractice lawsuit reforms in Poplar Bluff, Bush said that "too many OB/GYN's aren't able to practice their love with women all across the country."

Righty: I love the guy, I really do. He's got a great strategery. I think it was awesome that he poked fun about his grammar skills during his convention speech.

Lefty: LOL. BTW, where are all these poor doctors anyway? I don't see them in the unemployment line, nor do I see them begging on the street. Also, I usually don't see American cars in the employee spaces of their offices. And, again, you do choose your profession now don't you.

Me: Lordy. The issue of OB/GYN's not being able to practice (due to unaffordable malpractice insurance) isn't a "oh, those poor doctors" issue, it's an issue with lower income patients being unable to receive care:

Part of the problem:

John Edwards is one reason why the Regina (my wife, a physician) does not deliver babies. We can't afford the labor & delivery malpractice insurance. (Oh yeah, did I mention that my wife works in an ability-to-pay health clinic?)

We want this guy to have the spare time to work on national health care policies?

Lefty: I don't recall hearing any babies not being born due to ob/gyn's [sic] not being able to pay malpractice insurance.

One could argue that he was joking the whole time. That much seems apparent...except that such arguments are typical for the lad. If he was kidding, I must ask myself: How could anyone familiar with him tell?

It makes me glad to find myself voting with the right side of the aisle.

praising any president is a joke. they all suck. what part about too much government is a bad thing dont you understand. im happy for you, that you found a president whom you believe in, it must be a great feeling. me, i havent believed in one yet, im not easily conned by political crap. its a politician we're talking about here not your grandma. they are all inconsistant self motivated individuals. if they werent they wouldve never became president in the first place. like i said, im happy for you, but i dont see the world as democrat or republican, i see it as right or wrong, live or die, which is really what it is. dont let the propaganda machine fool you, and if you dont think there is a propaganda machine...well than its too late for you my friend.
