    Found this story in a North Carolina newspaper. Is this an example of George W Bush's family values? Or has he has only used family values as a political tool to get Christians to support him. Shame on us!

    Why is it the Bushs family values are in question.
    Looks to me that the Bodden family is the ones that decided to all join the military. And the liberals would have a fit if you suggested that moms should not be allowed to join the military.

    It does not say when they joined, But are you telling me that Clinton would not allow moms to join.

    Each of the parents chose to serve in the military knowing there was a possibility of this happening. The blame for the child being left with a "friend" while the parents are overseas lies squarely with the parents.

    My hands are dry and cracking from the cold weather. It must be George W. Bush's fault that we are having a cold winter in Arkansas. :tonofbricks:

    Sheesh...Of all the no good left wing, Christian republican bashing! I only lived in Arkansas for six years, but at least I know that if there is bad weather its Clinton's fault.

    In actuality, this article is not about bush's family values, so that is misleading.
    Next when people join the military we pay them, what are we paying them for, to sit at home and play house. Nope. If the family was concerned then why did the mother join the military? She is a soldier, and we expect to to be a soldier.

    you mean like soldiers in every war? not just iraq.

    Just as it's probably George Bush's fault we're having a single digit low over here near Lake Erie.
    Oh, my.
    If I have a flat tire on my way to work, I'll kick the tire pretending it's Bush's fault, which it is.
    Then I'll call in to the office and say I ain't comin' to work, and probably write Bush to pay me the day's wages I lost because he caused me to have a flat tire.

    ==It does not matter if the whole family is in the military or not. Our government should not be deploying both of a child's parents, it should be against the rules. Bush's values are in question because he continues to pursue a failed policy, and why? So his presidency will not go down the tubes of history. People are dying in Iraq because Bush does not want to be viewed as the failure he is.

    O, and just a general response, unlike the cold weather and flat tires this is Bush's problem. He is the commander and chief, at least in theory, therefore he is the head of the armed forces. It is his job to make sure that the rules are followed and that things are done justly. Sending all of a child's parents to Iraq, where they could all die, is not just. O, I am sorry, I forgot, he is too busy growing the size of the domestic federal government to be the Commander and Chief. Sorry, I forgot.

    ==Women, mainly mothers, should not be allowed to join the military and they should certainly never be sent to a war zone. Let the liberals have their fit. I am a solid conservative, unlike Bush and Clinton. Bush's policies are also pushing me towards being a military isolationist (ie..we use the military ONLY to defend American soil/citizens).

    Concur. Sending women into battle is also something the Barbarians did. Thus, it is literally a Barbaric practice.

    This is an unfortunate situation, but the parents knew of this possibility. Bush did not make the policy.

    However, Bush did make the failed policy in Iraq. So, while he is not directly responsible for the situation with this family, he is responsible for the situation in Iraq.

    In addition, it is clearly Bush's fault that the University of Arkansas' Athletic Department is going through such tough times.

    Of course its Bush's fault! We all know he has hand picked all the soldiers heading out to Iraq!

    When he saw he could get the father, step-father and mother to head out together and leave their 9 year old daughter he just jumped at the chance!

    How can Bush walk around knowing Global climate change and localised weather are his fault; all the world's peace problems are his fault; all the world economic problems are his fault; all the religious problems are his fault; all natural disasters are his fault; all educational problems are his fault. For such a stupid incompetent guy he really has made an impact.

    It amazes me that in the US and UK we demonise our leaders who we once idolised, knock them out of office, leave um for dead and a few years later, when the new leaders have lost their shine, we go back, dig up the corpses of those former leaders and worship them again.

    What a fickle bunch we are.

    You think Bush is deciding which individuals go to war?

    Whether or not women should go to combat is a different issue. In our volunteer military, people volunteer and they go where they are sent. The mom and dad should have thought about this before joining.

    Martin -

    I agree with a lot of your viewpoints that you share here, but this assertion, I can't. While I know the Iraq war hasn't gone according to how most of us think it should, these parents are in the military, and they chose that lifestyle. My prayers are with the little girl, as well as all three of the parents, as well as every single soldier over there, that they would be safe until they can come home.

    I agree, women should not be in the military, but since they are, they should be treated same as men, they get the same pay.
    Bush does not decide which soldiers go to war and which do not.
    Therefore, this has nothing to do with Bush's family values, and as I stated previously saying it does is misleading.
    It amazes me how far christians will bend the truth to make their point, or prove their side.

    :rolleyes: Words absolutely fail me.

    I am very sorry for this little girl whose mother, father, and step-father are all in harm's way at the same time. I believe that now that has been made aware to the public that two of them should given posts somewhere else. Immediately!

    But I can't agree with you Martin, that this is cause to keep mothers and women in general from entering the military. Molly "Pitcher", in the Revolutionary War, tended to men on the battlefield and allegedly took over her husband's place at his cannon when he was killed. The WASPS of WWII were female pilots who trained the new male pilots in combat skills. Some of these women lost their lives in this training. I could go on ad nausem, but I won't.

    I couldn't help but note that the article seemed to use the predicament of the little girl to promote her guardian's hatred of the President and apparently the author's same views.

    I don't like it when children are used as pawns to promote either the conservative politics, moderate politics, or liberal politics of adults. The author, if wanting to promote anti-Bush themes should have just interviewed the guardian and let her bash the President all she wanted to.

    None of this is George Bush's fault. The military is voluntary; they all signed up, unlike the war in the 60's. Now, one could give plenty of reasons why George Bush does not deserve the support of conservatives, but that is another thread.

    These liberals remind me of people who always take the Lords name in vain every time something doesnt go their way. I remember standing in line at the supermarket about one week after Bush was inaugurated and some old biddy was blaming him for a recent rise in the price of an item. Its simpletons like the Martin who scare me more than the most unscrupulous polititian. He may vote.
