No. I think he may lose the election to a candidate who is a lot like Jimmy Carter.
Maybe you missed the poll they were showing on Fox News. Kerry is ahead, 50% to 43%. (Margin of error +/- 3%.)
All this media bashing he's taking is having an effect.
Most voters do not think like Freepers. They don't care whether a candidate is honest or right. They are irrational.
This campaign is about stability in Iraq, continued prevention of terrorist attacks, and economic growth. Without that, Bush will lose no matter his honesty, and no matter his rectitude.
Life isn't fair; elections are less so.
BTW, I think he did okay in the press conference, but he did not hit a home run. He did not really connect with independent voters. His poll numbers should improve, though.
In order for a Democrat to win, the voters must decide the war on terror is not worth the cost because the Democrats have made it clear, they will not fight it.
In order for a Democrat to win, the voters must decide that higher taxes, more government rules and regulatation, and more social programs are the answer to all of our problems since that is what the Democrats have promised.
I think you are wrong.
As for polls, there is only one poll that counts, and that is the one in November, the rest, well let us just say there are was to get the results you want.
I have more faith in the American people then you do, and I think President Bush will be re-elected.
Naaa! Why would I do that?
You make good points. I would say he has said most of that many times over the last few months, most prominently in the State of the Union address. And although he could have said it again, I think it could have taken him off message.
I agree he fumbled the mistake question, but I also think he should not have made any concession whatsoever. The Iraqis, the terrorists and the terrorist sympathizers were watching closely. Any concession last night would have been viewed as weakness.
He can make any of those statements when the commission releases its bipartisan, totally unbiased and factually based report.
