Regardless of what washes out on the Bush National Guard situation don't you think it is a a basic indication of a character defect that GW just decided all on his own to let his flight status lapse by not taking the physical? People went out of their way to get him the training to become a pilot (it's very expensive to train a pilot). Many young men and woman would love to have the opportunity to get such training. In theory only the best and the brightest are given this opportunity, but unfortunitly we all know some people are given preference because of one reason or another. Be that as it may, don't you think it is somewhat of a cavalier(: marked by or given to offhand and often disdainful dismissal of important matters) attitude on GW's part to just say "I didn't want to fly anymore"???

Impact his character, no. Indicative of his character, a resounding YES. Remember, the squad he was in would NOVER have been called for Vietnam -- by definition that squad had responsibility for National BORDER protection.

Would you get into a plane if GW was the pilot?

Would anybody? /ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif
