Politicians and there personal life
Why do people care if a president gets blow jobs, cheats on his wife, enjoys S&M ect
Honestly I have no clue why people judge politicians based on there personal life rather than political goals/ideas and capability.
I mean honestly, if you have a president and he has done a great job, would you care if it turns out he enjoys having sex with gay midgets?? Would you care if he abused drugs as a teen? Likes to get spanked by trannies?

but what about a former drug addict?
10-28-2005, 11:15 PM #5
George Bush was a former alcoholic, not too much different, and that didn't seem to play any role in his election or re-election. But I supose if it were a drug that society viewed as "worse" like heroin, I think people would associate the addiction with stereotypes of heroin users and junkies, and I'm sure thats how the media would spin it as well. But personally no, an addiction in genral would not play a role in my choice for a political candidate. Provided the person in office wasn't currently addicted to the substance.
Any other posibly controversial personal issues?
How about a pedophile? Recent events have shown they slip into places of power . If someone were formerly convicted of child molestation, would that effect your decision?

yes because I have the oppinion that someone that is a proven child molester should not be allowed to live.
Here is another scenario. One that caused alot of media attention in sweden a few years ago.
The media found that when swedish politicians are out of the country on official buisness they regulary visit strip/porn clubs during the evenings. Sometimes paying it with taxpayers money.
Would you be upsett because
a/ they went to stripclubs
b/ they used taxpayer money for it.
Me personaly I dont care about either a nor b. Not a because I like stripjoints and I like politicians that like them and b because its not like its a huge expense and other politicians gets whole vaccations on tax payer money without anyone complaining. Hell I think they set there own salaries for christ sake.

I wouldn't care if a politician went to strip clubs on tax payers money, those costs are not worth a hoot. And If a politician wants to go to a strip club after a hard day of international meetings, I don't see why he can't go.
Here in the US, government officials have a government credit card that had a previous limit of $2,500. The limit was raised during Bush's term to $250,000. Since then, things like vacations, plastic surgery, and other obviously personal items appear on the government credit card bills. I find plastic surgery a tad bit annoying, but I don't believe it would effect my decision if that person were to run for an office.
I think as long as the behavior is in question isn't too far out of societies norms, no one will really care; except extremeists who are looking for any little thing to shoot down the other side.
I am curious to know what you think of this Carl Rove indictment, if you are familiar with it. If so, would that kind of behavior play a role in your decision on who to vote for?
10-29-2005, 09:50 AM #8
Here in swede that became a scandal because of the bloody feminists.
can you sum it up for me? the carl rove indictment? I realy dont follow news that much

this is a politician , he represent you , he represent you governement , he represent the nation ,so of course you have to care if he is fag ,alcoholic,cheat on his wife ect...
he represent the nation , he represent you!! because you are an important part of the nation.
10-29-2005, 09:56 AM #10
all I care is that he do his job right. What he does on his free time is not my buisness.
He only represents me when he is at work. Not at home or at vaccation.....
10-29-2005, 09:58 AM #11
He can screw midgets all he wants, as long as he is doing his job good.
I could care less about what another man does with his spare time...as long as he is doing his job...

A lot of people feel this way about slick willy. Many feel that he was a great pres, but the whole blow job thingy "blew" it for him, and that is wrong, cause as far as I could tell, he was mostly doing his job... Correct me if I am wrong, I am Canadian, but the media coverage we recieved on the big event was wa-a-a-ay too blown up out of proportion for Canadians to understand how one little blow job, could ruin a president...
Especially one with celebrity status.
10-29-2005, 10:06 AM #13
he is the nation of course it will ruin him!!

The Media rules North America, and 70% of all television satellites are all owned by the same shareholders. What they want said gets said, and Slick willy got great ratings!

10-29-2005, 10:18 AM #16
the one thing I dont approv of is that he choose such a uggly muther****er. I mean he was the president and chicks dig power so he should have go down and dirty with some playboy modells.
Look at JFK, he had taste when he messed around with uhh was it marily monroe??

It's funny to me that feminists are so powerful in your country. I seem to remember you complaining about them a few times on here. We really don't have that here.
10-29-2005, 11:18 AM #18Originally Posted by BeerBaron
Yeah I cant understand how they got the influence they have. Its disturbing. Mostly because they dont seem to want equality at all, they seem to want female superiority. They are so far out of touch with reality and seeing "male conspiracies" everywhere. Sweden is the most equal country in the world and yet we have those fanatic morons spreading there bullshit.
They recently started a feminist party aswell. But its going straight to hell and I cant say how imensly I enjoy them going down and the best thing of it all is that most of the feminist are from the left party. So it means the leftist party will go below the 5% vote needed to be in the goverment. So not only is it bye bye feminists, its also byebye left party
One thing that show the loss of reality is that the feminist parties leader wants a MALE TAX, to pay for the damages from male abuse on females Well **** that she might aswell brand rapist and abuser on all of us. Another prominent member of the party also say that all males are animals.
That is the filth they can spread through the media here.

after reading the article I would say rove should be on trial. It would seriously lower my trust in him as a politician. This imo is inability to act as a professional. Not a personality flaw during his free time.
10-29-2005, 11:28 AM #20Originally Posted by johan
This line really cracked me up in the article: wrote that he had spoken "to Rove on double super-secret background for about two min[ute]s before he went on vacation ..." LOL double super-secret background.... as opposed to single super-secret background i supose.
10-29-2005, 11:30 AM #21
double super secret sounds like something from a cartoon

Guess the white house better be a little more careful when trying to undermine their political enemies. Oh well, there is always next time.
