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
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.
We're energized! No letting up.
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.
>>I, like most of you are as bumped as I have ever been,<<
I'm not even going there----
Welcome to FR(I think).
From the Art of War (paraphrased and from very late night memory):
When you are strong, act as though you are weak. Build your army as though your advisary is ten times your size.
I want all 50 states come November :0)
I want to send a message to every dang liberal
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.
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.
Perfect headline, correct attitude. Dracula ain't dead until the stake is through his heart and the November 3 sunrise has incinerated his bony corpse.
Welcome to Free Republic. Your right that we need to stay energized, but I'm still going to enjoy the recent boost in confidence.
P.S. Let's not forget the dirty tricks that will be played at the end as well. You know they've got something up their sleeve.
My what a very deceptive headline you have. /Little Red Riding Hood
Oh the anger at being deceived!
