Dressed in his trademark attire, jeans, a black T-shirt and red baseball cap, filmmaker Michael Moore spoke at Richard Stockton College last night to preach to the converted and poke fun at his detractors.

The maker of "Fahrenheit 9/11," Moore is an unabashed liberal who attracted more Democrats than Republicans to hear what proved to be a political speech.

Moore lamented that the Republican Party of today was not the same GOP that had supported women's rights, supported the civil rights movement, built the Interstate Highway System and created the Environmental Protection Agency.

"Are there any Republicans here tonight?," Moore quipped, upon entering through a rear door and flanked by Secret Service-looking bodyguards who wore earpieces and stood watch in front of the stage.

There was a combination of applause and boos.

"Let's not boo them," Moore admonished. "Let's show them (Republicans) the right way to behave. Everyone has a Republican in the family."

"The Republicans stopped being Republicans and turned mean-spirited," Moore said. "I'm sure there are Republicans today who are ashamed at what George Bush has done to this country."

Jason Schwartz, 18, of Brick, a freshman, said he had no intentions of stepping foot inside the sports arena where 4,000 people covered the bleachers and columns of folding chairs in the massive complex.

He and a group of friends mingled outside the complex, watching the line of people waiting to get in grow to a length that stretched around the building.

"I hate him," Schwartz said. "His movie, 'Bowling For Columbine' (anti-NRA and guns) was so biased. I'm voting for Bush."

Moore warned that Democrats have not been as successful in galvanizing as much excitement about their candidates and issues as Republicans have.

"The radical brand that runs this country is very good at what they do," Moore said. "Morning, noon and night they get up at the crack of dawn trying to figure out what minority they don't want to marry today."

"It's always good to see both sides of an issue," said John Macaluso, 21, of Lacey, a senior at Stockton. "I'm interested in his side and I'm interested in the Republican side.

Moore's lecture took place at the college sports center, which can accommodate up to 5,000 people. Stockton hired a private security firm to supplement its campus police force. Moore also traveled with his own bodyguards.

Michael Moore needs to do something productive with his life rather than continue as a demagogue.

Why am I not surprised that he has bodyguards for the protection he'd gladly deny commoners?

Well lets see.... ya keep having the same self hating liberal elitists preaching the same tired old rhetoric to an electorate that outside the coasts really doesnt want to hear it and ya wonder why?

IMHO , Moore is a laughingstock and a stain on the blue dress of the democrats . I don't see how anyone can take him seriously , he's laughing all the way to the bank .

Well there is a lot of body to guard! ;)

Which has a point, did you see that article on CNN where they were analyzing if it was ok to call him fat? Apparently calling someone a fatty is the last bastion of political incorrectness. As if calling him a liar wasn't fitting enough.

I'm glad to see they included someone with a different opinion of Moore rather than an awestruck person who thinks Moore is the saviour of our country.

Michael Moore needs to do something productive with his life rather than continue as a demagogue.He is making MILLIONS of dollars being a hypocritical loudmouth. Finding something more productive to do would cost him MONEY.

"The radical brand that runs this country is very good at what they do," Moore said. "Morning, noon and night they get up at the crack of dawn trying to figure out what minority they don't want to marry today." Thought they were trying to figure out who to give my money to.

"Morning, noon and night they get up at the crack of dawn ..."


What eloquence. No wonder they're paying him to speak.

All I can say is that he didn't get any of my money. Typical hypocrite, just like Daley. Is so anti gun, but has armed guards.:rolleyes:

Probably armed with Twinkies, soda and other eatables to ensure Mike Moore doesn't slim down and lose his commanding presence. :p

The man has far more to fear from his diet than any NRA members. I've never gone in for the weight jokes, but Moore is seriously close to a major health breakdown by the look of him. A very busy schedule combined with horrible diet and high stress--it's a combination that has taken out more folks than handguns, that's for sure. I expect to see a news article about Moore's collapse with a massive heart attack any day now.

Sounds like Rosie O'Donuts. She doesn't want you to be able to defend your family, but she wants armed guards to protect her and her family.
Typical.:barf:
