Colbert and Kucinich
indecision2008.com

The strange and startling array of items tucked away in the pockets of Democratic presidential candidate—or, as Stephen Colbert calls him, the “Democratic Party headquarters’ house elf”—Dennis Kucinich constitutes cause for concern on Colbert’s part, as well as grounds for Kucinich’s inclusion on Colbert’s (pocket-size) “On Notice” board.

I am voting only for Kucinich!  He is the only democratic candidate who voted for the war,from the beginning.
Do you want someone for a president who was “fooled” by Bush?

Congressman Kucinich has submitted the following resolutions before Congress:

H.R. 1234 -to end the war -no new legislation is needed.

H.R 333 -to impeach Cheney

H.R. 676 Universal health care for all.

Wake up!  Vote for yourself! Vote for Kucinich!

Kucinich wants to ban handgun ownership by civilians in the US.

Therefore, Kucinich is terminally unelectable. Do you know how goofy you sound supporting an utterly unelectable candidate? I mean, if you just want him to run as a third party spoiler candidate to split the democratic vote and hand the presidency to another neocon globalist Republican, I guess that’s up to you.  Just don’t complain about President Fred Thompson, though, because it will be you Kucinich supporters who put him in office.

Lets hope the Colbert bump puts Dennis Kucinich on the map. He represents the views of most decent Americans

Kucinich? Really? The guy who was a big anti war candidate until the 2004 Democratic Convention who then asked his supporters (who were, by the way, kept outside the hall) to throw their weight behind the decidedly militaristic Kerry? If he’d had any commitment to the anti-war support he’d gathered, he would have run as an independent instead.

I saw and heard Kucinich interviewed by Judy Woodruff on PBS News Hour tonight. His comments resonated with me, more so than those of any of the other candidates. I’ll seek to learn more about this man I once heard called “Dennis the Menace” when he was Cleveland’s mayor.

Dennis Kucinich? The media have buried him. How dare he have a program! How dare he oppose the Corporate Powers! And the U.S. is a democracy? Robert Davies

It’s Kucinich or none! Period.  No compromising this time! Enough is enough.

Thank God somebody is it least joking about Kucinich. If the government/press had its way, (and they do almost entirely) we wouldn’t even know this man existed.

The “front runners” are aptly named because they are all positioning themselves to be a front for continuing an ongoing George Bush like policy. Every single “front runner” is an affront to freedom and to the intellect of the American voting public.

Kudos for Stephen Colbert for making the dour Dennis Kucinich seem interesting. Mr. Kucinich positions are correct on stopping the Iraq war now, single payment universal health care without insurance industry involvement and having the rich in this country pay their fair share of taxes. Mr. Kucinich, please take Stephen Colbert’s challenge to go on his program and take your wife, make your response lighthearted and very human, and only mention your correct political positions in passing. I will vote for you and so will many Americans.

Presidential Candidate Dennis Kucinich most certainly does have the best interest of the people at heart!  And, hopefullay, more and more people will soon discover that.

And, remember that the primaries and caucuses are about delegates, and being represented at the national convention. Yes, the primaries and caucuses are about we,the people! 

I can’t think of any presidential candidate better suited to represent the peoples’ interest than Dennis Kucinich!

Kucinich is the choice of any well-informed person that wants the best for this country and the rest of the world.

The man who makes the most sense.  Remember, he voted against, AGAINST, giving Bush the authority to go to war.

Clinton and Edwards voted to give Bush the authority.

Think about who was on the correct side before you vote for either Clinton of Edwards.

It’s really too bad that the Presidential election has turned into such beauty pageant. Kucinich has so many great ideas that could help restore the Middle Class and the country’s position as a leader, not a destroyer.
