Is affirmative action needed?

Affirmative action has become a plauge in society. We need to abolish it. It's just a travesty that jobs in this society don't go to the best man, but instead go to people because of who their parents are. We need a leader who can stand and deliver. A leader who has a spine and can see the moral difference between earning a position on merit and just getting one because of who they are. This starts with President Bush admitting that he got affirmative action to skip out of Vietnam and into a position that he didn't deserve ahead of men more qualified.

I'd be curious to hear Bush's position on affirmative action, all things considered... Personally, I'm torn. If rich people get it, it seems like poor people should get it too...

Sticky issue...

Interesting:


Bush on affirmative action:

Mr. Bush denounced the Michigan policy as "fundamentally flawed" and unconstitutional. The program "amounts to a quota system that unfairly rewards or penalizes prospective students solely on their race," Mr. Bush said in announcing that his administration would file a legal brief in the case with the Supreme Court on Thursday.



Hilarious... Apparently affirmative action for the darkies is no good. Affirmative action for him was A-ok!

Don't tell me there's no hypocrisy here... Just admit it and say you'll support him anyway...

The most amusing thing to me about this thread is that you guys, who are the ones who no doubt would attack affirmative action at every corner, can't say a WORD about your president receiving it for himself to get out of duty to his country.

But I get attacked around this place so much that it doesn't bother/suprise me. I just enjoy seeing the sqirm.

I'm okay with some affirmative action--as the Supreme Court has said, in cases of "egregious and long standing discrimination" that is clear and demonstratable.

Of course, that would shatter your stereotype of me....so I'll leave you to your delusions.

1. That I'd attack affirmative action for you, necessarily...

2. That I'm okay with Bush's working the system....

In both cases, if you made those assumptions, you'd be wrong.

How has Bush used affirmative action? If anything, affirmative action would make what Bush did more difficult.
