Bush Ten Points Down!!!
9/3/2004 | Sixxiron

Posted on 09/04/2004 10:35:58 PM PDT by sixxiron

Nowthat the convetions are over, now that both candidates are out in "battleground" states, it is critical that we do not get over-confident in the commanding lead from our commander in cheif. I, like most of you are as bumped as I have ever been, but I am forcing myself to think of Bush as 10 POINTS DOWN! I am calling on all of you to take this stand and to work as hard as we possibly can to make sure that we close the deal on election day.

On the day after the election, when we have "come back" from this 10 point "defecit", we can all take pride in fighting to the end like a true champion. We are showing America and the world how to run a right, true, honest but fierce campaign and for this we should all be proud, but not until after election day. Let's finish this!!! Sixx

Some wisdom in that stance, imho.

You're absolutely right. Even W was downplaying the polls at his stop in Cleveland today.

We're gonna win it though. W will win by 9 pts and 330 EVs, and Thune will narrowly defeat Dasshole as well.

I think you have a better chance of snowballing into a landslide if you keep talking landslide. There are a lot of voters who want to vote for the one who is going to win. Convince them that Bush has it in the bag, and you have their votes.

I don't think any Republicans are going to get complacent.

I agree with ur sentiments. Remember, the Dems are masters at getting the vote out. They do thier best work in this regard from the final weekend through election day.

Yup, your right. From those Dems that vote in two states, to the cemetary vote, to the illegal alien vote, to the felon vote, to voting 5-6 times in their own state, those Dems know every trick in the book.

I understand the premise you are adopting, but I heard an interesting comment yesterday. Bush has taken a nice lead. At this point he doesn't need to press. If he just plans out things so he can come off looking Presidential, confident and full of substance, Kerry will have one hell of a time catching up.

Coming out and campaigning every day might actually have some negative aspects. Don't look like you're press. Act relaxed and as though you didn't have a worry in the world.

Let Kerry press. In fact encourage him to. The look of desparation will do him in.

I hear what you are saying, and we can support Bush in positive ways, but let Kerry do the cramming and we'll just go positive. We've got a great product and the public knows it.

Gee your post scared me but you make a great point. I'm pretty sure that things will start tightening up again between the two candidates. You know that the media will jump all over this when the inevitable happens. President Bush squanders convention bounce yada, yada, yada...

Even though I was happy to see the bounce, it has it's drawbacks as well. Supporters may get over confident and the media will go overboard when things start evening out again. Once again, President Bush can't win. When it's good news it's bad, when it's bad news, it's bad.

A fleeting moment of joy flashed through the tiny hearts of third party supporters when they read the headline, "Bush Ten Points Down!!!"

Oh the anger at being deceived!

No question they are sleazes. Thats why we can't affort to sit on our arse. We should each make a commitment to get 5-10 people who normally don't vote to get out there on election day and vote for W.

With the coming big $$ blitz of the Kerry campaign (along with his willing accomplises in the MSM) these next 2 months, I don't think you have to worry about ANYBODY feeling complacent!

Even if THE WHOLE COUNTRY IS RED in the AOL Poll

No offense, but this is an oft-repeated bit of drivel.

People who are ten points down get desperate.

We should be behaving as if there were NO polls. Do what W has been doing, just plowing straight ahead, getting the work done.

The specter at the table posts are the ones I like the least around here, and not just because they're so obvious, but that they grow like mushrooms. Everyone who wants to be "different" posts a "Come on, folks, let's be real here" post.

Just keep the eye on election day and move forward. When you're down by ten points you act like Kerry is acting now--not exactly a prescription for success.

But if you are ahead and want to build a BIGGER lead, your joy and excitement gets contageous.

So, in brief: No thanks.

It will interesting to see what kind of "coattails" President Bush has. We can begin to feel confident once [and if] we see Dem candidates distancing themselves from Kerry. If they embrace him on his way down the tubes, there might be a huge turnover of power to the Republicans.

If the Democrat voters believe that Kerry can't win, many will stay home. This might be a very good election for the Pubbies. Watch the House and Senate races and see if any candidates decline to be seen with Kerry.

Gee, it looks like Bill and Teresa might have found a way to duck out! :) [One might have been a fluke, but when two of them show up at the hospital, there seems to be a trend.]

No troll here, just a jacked up conservative after the convention!!! I too am enjoying the bounce, but I fear complacency. I also agree with the comments of others that it is good to lead so that "undecided" voters jump on the bandwagon. My message was just to you guys and the base. Let's finish this thing strong so the is NO question who the commander in cheif is! Thanks for the welcome. You guys ROCK!!!

...third party supporters...
You have got the weirdest fixation with third party people that I've ever seen. It seems that every other post of yours denigrates them. Is there a pathological fear of some kind there?
You might want to seek some psychological help for that.
and here comes the inevitable sniping at me for saying anything detrimental...

I live in Massachusetts, and sKerry's got that locked. My brother and niece live in neighboring New Hampshire, which is up for grabs. He's not politically minded but is leaning towards Kerry. I'm working hard trying to convince him to vote for Bush without alienating him.

My niece is 21, and isn't even sure if she's voting. I'm working on her, and I want her to convince her friends too. It's not easy.

Enough with the wet blankets, already

Don't circle the wagons. Get people to jump on the BANDWAGON.

Confidence sells, Fear smells.

Let Kerry be the one to run like he's ten points down.

We're conservatives. We don't need to lectured about the need to work hard every ten fricken minutes.

This is what I've been saying for months!
The only poll that counts is the vote on Nov. 2nd.
Beyond that, it's total speculation.

I'm just going to have a peaceful quiet knowledge of KNOWING we are winning by humongeous numbers.
With a huge smile on my face!
But I won't gloat!

Just know it!

Then after we win,
I WILL SHOUT AND SING AND DANCE AND POST AND POST AND POST AND POST AND PRAISE THE LORD FOR VICTORY!!!!!!!

Every Republican everywhere needs to vote straight ticket this year. If your grandmother is running on the Dem ticket, vote against her. We've seen that in the Senate we need 60 Senators because that is the filibuster proof number. In the House, we need an edge of at least 30 votes. The defeat of the Left needs to be wide and deep and devastating.

No, I'm not another "Go Pat Go!" drone. I'm nobody's drone. Thanks for asking. BTW, whose drone are you? Will you, like Jaskson, continue thinking of me as such despite my telling you I'm not "such and such"?
The other thing personal we have going on is that the Chief Warrant Officer, if he actually is/was one, thinks he knows me and my positions so well when he doesn't, despite his apparent attempts to paint me into such positions. We disagree on the WOD and IMO he believes that my stance gives him the right to denigrate me at every possible opportunity he gets.
I disagree with his constant harping on third party members as well as disparaging anyone else who doesn't see things as he does in his narrow, myopic views.
Any other questions?

I am not thinking as us as 10 points up or down. I have seen to many polls going both directions to feel confident about a Bush win. I would like to think Bush could win this in a landslide since Kerry is such a bad candidate. I keep hoping the American public wakes up and doesn't vote for Kerry. But I have to face the facts that Kerry is going to win some big electorial votes state no matter what. Also I am counting on major rat fraud in some states. Hopefully Bush will be able to overcome all of this.

I think they got a new trick for this election, absentee ballots. They can vote in multiple states and for other people without them knowing. No telling what else they have came up with.
