Skip to comments.Bush Ten Points Down!!!
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
We will never sit on a lead. It is full boards until november baby.
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.
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.
And they aren't limited by little annoiances like legalities.
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.]
You ARE confidant aren't you?
I was hoping it'd be over by Christmas this time.
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!!!
I'm sure that Zell Miller could get elected!
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.
The title sure got you on this thread pretty quick. Sorry it was only for disappointment.
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.
It's nice of you to drive by, but you really should reply on your own thread.
Don't worry yourself there pillman...you can always dream the headline is true.
No drive by, just new to Free Republic. Is that OK? or is this your club which nobody can join? Man, what a welcome.....
