I have a real problem with comments like this. After serving a hitch in the Air Force, I spent twenty years in the National Guard as a Combat Engineer and as a Tank Commander. The National Guard makes up about 52% of the military and on the weekends that we train and the two weeks in the summer we trained just as hard and were required to meet the same standards as the regular Army.what some consider the very lowest levels of military service, the National Guard,
The National Guard is a vital part of the military. Most who choose to serve in the Guard make a conscious choice to do so and often they do so after already serving active duty in the military. George W. Bush joined the National Guard to avoid the draft and, as recent documents available through the Freedom of Information Act show, he had a less than stellar performance.

I could not agree with you more OldScout. They are not my sentiments but it does seem to be those of others, at least in regard to Bush. If you remember someone on one of the other topics made reference to his service record. My reply to the poster was it doesn’t make a dang bit of difference.
I wouldn't say it galls the heck out of me. He didn't win the popular vote and frankly, Gore would have been no more effective IMHO. It doesn't change the fact that neither of them has a military record one can be proud of. Money talks and both are proof of that.Originally posted by JFlosum:
[QB]Yup, he’s the Prez NurseNell!! That just galls the heck out you don’t it?
Clinton was a Rhodes Scholar and like other Rhodes Scholars had a draft deferment. Like him or not, dummies don't get to be Rhodes Scholars. His family was poor too so no buying his way into anything. BTW, I didn't vote for Clinton and if you've read my past posts you'd know I do not like the man or his wife.And just what was Billy Clinton doing during Viet Nam? Hiding under some desk? Of course he was probably not alone…….
Please show me in black and white where I ***EVER*** said Gore would be better. BTW, GWB does pretty good in the lying and cheating department too. It seems to be a requirement for politics. Who was it that said "When roll is called at the Senate the Senators don't know whether to answer "Here" or "Not Guilty"?Ya, Ya …Gore’s the answer… wish we could reverse that election… Al Gore much better at lying and cheating….. He gets away with it!
I'm thinking it was Teddy Roosevelt who said it.Originally posted by JFlosum:
That is funny! I don’t know who said it but I know I am going to steal it!!
