WASHINGTON - In the presidential campaign's closing weeks, Democrats are bracing for an "October Surprise," an event so dramatic it could influence the election's outcome. The capture of Osama bin Laden, for instance.

Bush could use a massive "October surprise".
Hope Rove can come up with something huge.
Posted twice already.
I kinda think Hillary will do the honors on this one.
I got my surprise a day early with the debate.
The RATs have been saying this for months. They are just prepping us for anything so they can say see what told you they were going to october surpise us. And then they'll dismiss the charges by just saying the timing is suspicious.
If it is Osama's capture, once again it's smart for the RATs to get out in front of this. If he isn't captured, the US has been given the false hope that we could capture him. If we do capture him they'll say they timed it with the election.
Smart play by the Party of the RAT.
The surprise is that a Republican inside the Pentagon will leak Kerry's dishonorable discharge, the one issued before Jimmy Carter's pardon allowed him to get an honorable discharge in 1978.
Meaning they are praying for bad news and dreading good news.
Rove said this week on radio, I believe it was Hannity that a couple of interesting things have been saved for October. The Dems have fired both barrels already. Let's see. UBL, Hillary, Linda Tripp his Pentagon records to show his bad conduct discharge,, jail Sandy Burglar, or CA Sec of State Shelly, or NJ GOv McGreasy, maybe expose Kerry's gay affair with Hillary or something kind of juicy.
Democrats like to project what they themselves do, so look for Democrats to pull a fast one this month.
Oh, Criminy! What a load of C-B-S. I guess the DNC sent out these talking points to the MSM just to be on the offensive should something break. (It's old news, etc...)
I guess the "Kerry-hit-a-grand-slam-during-the-debate-and-is-now-well-ahead-of-Bush " memo isn't cutting it.
I agree with those who say this is our early warning system at work. Whatever the Democrats accuse you of preparing to do means they gonna do it.
Sadly they would love to see a major disaster befall our fighting men. It's sad how far down they've sunk.
My guess for the Oct surprise is the Dems replacing Edwards with Hillary.
We might need a series of October surprises. Hopefully Cheney will deliver the first.
Let's see... in 2000, the DUI story surfaced that last weekend.... in 1992, the Iran-Contra indictments came down.... In 1988, the George H.W. Bush SR-71 Blackbird "story" came out...
Someone tell me why the DEMOCRATS should be worried about an October surprise?
I hope you're not suggesting that we get into a nuclear war to win the election! I want to win, but sheesh...that's too drastic for me! Remember, N Korea has nukes that can hit the U.S. I would wish for some OTHER October surprise than that one! Maybe a big hit on some terrorist areas in Iraq or something. But not a nuclear war. No way.
