    Interesting commentary on the use of words by both parties, and shows their value systems.. somewhere, someone has too much time on their hands and tabulated all of this..

    What is reall interesting are the use of these words per 25,000 words uttered.

    Dems used the word Veteran 16 times Republicans used it 2 times
    Dems used the word war 19 times Republicans used it 9 times
    Dems used the word Military 12 times Republicans used it 5 times...

    Not able to post this document, suspect it is too big, but very interesting..

    I'd prefer our government take care of our troops rather than pray for them.

    But you enjoy your dreams of a theocracy.

    It was very long :eek:

    The more one inspects all this stuff the less it makes sense.

    The feeling I got more than ever this year was these conventions were reality shows. Strong on emotion and lacking of substance. I guess they have to have them and maybe it's just that our problems are beyond these bozos.

    It is, and they will -- just like the republicans

    But has Obama cut funding for veterans care? What have the Republicans been doing w/regard to veterans care?

    (and regardless, unlike Patro, I'll still take funding for our troops rather than prayers for them)

    yeah, but john kerry and obama killed bin laden, so we really don't need those soldiers anyway

    like I said, talk is cheap

    EDIT: obama hasn't cut funding for anything.......exept medicare

    Actually if you looked at the chart may be surprised..

    Unemployed 1 for Dems and 17 for Republicans out of 25K words uttered..
    Jobs 88 for the Dems and 80 for the Republicans out of 25K words uttered...
    God 22 for the Dems and 35 for the theocrats out of 25K words uttered.. .

    I don't think Obama or anybody else has claimed he killed bin Laden. bin Laden was killed under his administration, though, so if we're going to blame him for things, that's one he should get credit for.

    Medicare funding was cut, but that was just a shift, wasn't it?

    Yeah like pray for the unborn. I heard some boos in the background.

    These people are the sickest bastards to walk the earth.

    Yet rejoice when President Scissor Head talks of unicorns and rainbows.

    I almost pissed my pants when President Sham Wow said the 2008 election wasn't about him.
