hes getting ripped off!!!!! maybe if we dig deep enough we can find the evil claws of halliburton in this......

i always thought the president gets an allowance each year that he can spend on clothes. and if thats the case, who cares.

the point that the other thread was making is that kerry isnt the guy you people claim he is. he is not in touch with the middle class, and he never will be. he dosent know what its like to live in a normal house and work a 9 to 5 job. hes not the robin hood hes made out to be. everyday we see him make a speech about how out of touch bush is, when kerry is as extravagant as the president, if not more so.

for the record, if kerry is elected he will be the 3rd richest president in history, and no, bush isnt in the top two.

I really do not care about either, but suits are expensive especially after tailoring. I spent 1K on mine and I am not president. ;)

A 1K haircut is ridiculous though. :rolleyes:

And my point is that the point of the other thread was stupid. No one made out Kerry to be "Robin Hood".

Was the point supposed to be that a wealthy man can't do anything positive for America's working class?

Was the point supposed to be that Kerry, as a wealthy man, is out of touch with the working class, and we should vote for the OTHER wealthy man running instead?

Or - this is a stretch, but bear with me here - could it be that the poster was just looking for any excuse to jab at Kerry? I mean, I'm sure Republicans would never do such a thing :rolleyes:

I couldn't give two s@#ts about how wealthy our president is - that alone means nothing. I care about his attitude and approach, and what he DOES.

That's interesting. What about Bush Sr.?

Kerry, being an immensly wealthy man, may put him out of touch with the American people, but is Bush anymore in touch? He's been under his dad's wing since he was born. He's had everything handed to him.

Either way, it's just pointless mud slinging.

Well, kerry served in vietnam. I don't know what class that puts him into but he was in touch and served with people from all over the place. Are you saying I should worry about becoming "out of touch" if i ever become too wealthy? As long as you have your priorities straight who cares how much money you have.

edit: not necesarilly saying Kerry has his priorities straight, I guess we will find that out

They are both wealthy, well-dressed, well-maintained white men. Their looks are actually important.

As far as jabbing at Kerry, it is so easy, why not? ;)

(I am sure you can say the same about Bush)

I wonder if we will have free ketchup if he is elected. I would vote for him if that were the case.

Yup. It would be nice if we could have an election which wasn't full of jabs about little details of people's military service (or non-service) and passing remarks people made 25 years ago and how this candidate gets really expensive haircuts or suits (complete with subtle, pointless remarks about the hairdresser being French), but such is not the case, sadly.

Yep, their looks are definitely important. And yes, taking shots at Bush is definitely a fish-in-a-barrel kind of thing. :)

What does that have to do with the cost of Kerry's haircut, exactly?

Is it supposed to be hypocritical of him to be wealthy and oppose tax cuts for the wealthy? If it says anything about him, that says he's not motivated by his own interests.

That's really nothing special man.

14k is alittle excessive but 2-5k for a top quality suit is not that uncommon.

I used to work in a high end mens clothing store and we sold suits like that all the time.

So that's the Kerry standard? If he get's elected, none of us will even be able to afford a haircut!

He,he, then the hairstylists will become fabulously wealthy, and Kerry will tax them back into poverty where we all belong.

Why are they that different? Both are to do with personal appearance, both are too damn costly. This conflict has already been resolved: Neither one of these claims actually matter. It's just pointless campaign propaghanda that has nothing to do with either candidates abilities as a leader.

I completely agree.

I mans haircut shouldn't cost over $20, a simple $12 cut is fine and you probably won't notice the difference.

So...kerry paid roughly 50 times the acceptable range for a haircut.


I own a suit that's worth 2 grand, and a good suit should cost about that much. So bush paid between 1 and 7 times that(2-14k)....huge difference!

Is a car too damn costly because they can cost tens of thousands of dollars? A good suit that actually fits and is soft is VERY expensive, period. You can't just get a suit like that cheap. I have a better hair cut then Kerry and it costs $15 (plus a $3 tip) once a month.

:rolleyes: Talk about splitting hairs. So it's OK if Kerry pays, say, $200 for a haircut - then you'd leave it alone and move to a REAL issue?

I find it amusing that the right is bringing up issues such as WHAT exactly Kerry threw onto the White House lawn in protest of the Vietnam War (Ribbons...or medals?!?!), his haircuts, his military service...


Here's an idea! Focus on the REAL issues! The ones that matter! Environment, Iraq, National Security, the Economy.

Simply attacking a person for minute things such as the issues posted above only makes the attacking side seem all the more desperate and pathetic.

I couldn't care less if he spends $1,000 on his haircuts or Bush spends $1,000,000 on his suits. Just don't be a hypocrit.

Understand now?

Kerry has every god damn right to say he is a man of the people; why? Because he understands that supporting the middle class with tax breaks is more important than giving huge tax breaks to the upper class.

Yeah, he is rich. So what? At least he understands that it is wrong to **** over the majority of Americans, who make under 100k a year, and favor the richest americans.

You think Bush will stand up for the middle class? Bull****. If Bush really wanted to help out, he would have given the biggest tax cut percentage to the middle class and not the extremely wealthy. He'd give companies incentives to stay in the U.S. as opposed to giving incentives to go overseas and outsource. He'd impliment plans for the public schools that don't force millions of people to pay HIGHER taxes for them. The list goes on.

Both of these guys are rich, but only one of them actually gives a **** about the 'average joe'. Bush sure as hell ain't him.

Neither really cares about the average joe. They just care to persuade us to vote for them. Politicians are champions of the people on the campaign trail, then masters of the realm when they take office.

You are correct, to a degree. Most presidents try to keep their campaign promises when elected (unlike Bush...Kyoto treaty, anyone?)...to do otherwise is essentially promising them only one term in office.

The Kyoto accord is bogus. It's a large welfare check courtesy of America, China, India and Russia and first-world nations to poor nations that do not believe in free-market principles, which stagnate their GDP growth, hence, the lack of pollution they produce.

No president will be in his right mind to sign that, and even then it will be tough because it will have to go through Congress.

Congress would have never ratified it(except perhaps the Kucinich wing). It is horrific piece of regulations for America. It takes aim to maim industrialized, successful economies and with the lost jobs, money, and markets subsidize third world ****holes who wouldn't be able to develop with the $$$ anyways.
