Lance Armstrong has openly called George W. an idiot for invading Iraq
without the support of the United Nations. Does that make one of them

a
traitor?

Any credible quotes there MR Laura Bush aka transvestite ?


What he said in the french magazine "L'Equipe" :


Snip frog-babble

"I am not a fan of the war, but I am not either a fan of a dictator like
Saddam Hussein and obviously not of any form of terrorism. However, I

think
that it would be an error to go there without the support of the United
Nations and Europe"


Which falls somewhat short of calling President Bush "an idiot".
Armstrong is as entitled to his opinion as any other American, and his
opinion bears no more weight than anyone else's.


Maybe, but he's been abroad more than once.

The quote fell VERY short of calling him an idiot.

So why is it being posted here?

if Lance Armstrong ceased to be a "true American" because of his
disagreement with the substance of President Bush's policy, then
surely the USSR was correct in the imprisonment and execution of
political dissidents, undesirable elements, counterrevolutionaries,
and class-enemies?

it amuses me to see the "patriots" employing good, old-fashioned
democratic-centralist practice in the running of their policy--hold a
debate, ballot the people, and expel anybody who doesn't agree with
the line thus taken. Lenin would be proud. don't know about Patrick
Henry, though.

in spite of the fact that he IS an idiot, as well as a liar,
crook, and former coke addict.

An idiot who continually cleans Democrat's clocks politically. Enjoy

2004!

I'm sorry, who was it that won the popular vote last time? Oh, that's right,
Al Gore. You know, he's a Democrat. Imagine that. More people voted for a
Democrat. Hmmm.

BTW, Joining the National Guard to avoid being drafted is hardly
draft dodging.


The issue is that didn't serve his full term of duty. See:

That's because there aren't 150,000 Europeans who can spell Europe.

Still bitter, I see.
However, in America, the popular vote is not what elects Presidents - the
electoral vote does. So, yes, more people voted for Gore, but Bush won the
Whitehouse because he carried more electoral votes. Make sense?
