I'M THE Democratic mayor of Youngstown, a city that traditionally gives 60 to 75 percent of its vote to the Democratic presidential candidate.
Growing up with the legacies of FDR, Harry Truman, and JFK formed my core Democratic values.
They had the courage of their convictions, their word was their bond, and the entire world knew it.
They made me proud to be a Democrat. Fast forward to 2004. John Kerry stands on the stage of Radio City Music Hall, acknowledges a group of Hollywood leftists and elitists, and characterizes them as representing the heart and soul of America.
Senator Kerry, Ohio is still in America, and in Ohio Hollywood leftists do not represent our values, our heart, or our soul.
It gets worse. My fellow Democrats in Ohio recently selected our "Democrat of the Year." Would you believe Jerry Springer?
I'm told that as a good Democrat I must honor a man who on his latest television program featured 400-pound bearded sisters wrestling in a pool of Jell-O. Springer is a man who is well known -- for all the wrong reasons.
Senator Kerry reminds me of the politician who when asked his position on the war in Iraq stands tall and responds loudly: "One-half of my friends support the war in Iraq and one-half of my friends oppose the war in Iraq. And I'm not afraid to say that I support my friends."
My support for President Bush is motivated by his stance in making national security the number one priority. Bush understands that the terrorists cannot be reasoned with at a United Nations debating society conference.
Peace through strength brought down the Berlin Wall, and only peace through strength will defeat the terrorists.
In contrast, the Hollywood leftists who've hijacked the Kerry campaign believe that Michael Moore would be a more effective secretary of state than General Colin Powell.
I'm confident that FDR, Truman, and JFK would show Moore the door with their shoe leather on his backside. That's the Democratic Party I knew and loved.
My granddaughters hug me when they are afraid.
My vote this year is for the man I believe will provide a safer future for all of our children and grandchildren.
That man is President George W. Bush. -- GEORGE M. McKELVEY
hey Bless this guy
If he's a politician it means that city is goin for Bush
The rare rational Democrat.
So this was in the Boston Globe? Sweet. It's heartening to hear dems say they support President Bush. My only beef is that he says he belongs to the democrat-IC party.
Wonder how he felt about the philanderer-in-chief, Clinton?
Never heard of the guy before, but I nominate him for the orangelobster "man of the day" award.
Thank you so much Mr. McKelvey !
N.e. Ohio bump for a brave man.
"Bush understands that the terrorists cannot be reasoned with at a United Nations debating society conference."Exactly...
may the spirit of Zell Miller continue to rise up!
"My vote this year is for the man I believe will provide a safer future for all of our children and grandchildren.
