Supports Bush, saying the Hollywood radicals have hijacked the democrat party.

Kerry is going duck hunting near Youngstown. Saying that kerry campaigning in Youngstown that kerry is in trouble.

"Something is wrong when a democrat is coming back to a democratic stronghold 4 times."

This is from a Democrat!

He said Kerry has been to Youngstown 4 times when it usually delivers, if I remember what he said, roughly 70% Democrats. So Kerry must believe there's a problem if he's coming back again duck hunting...

going hunting won't work for Kerry!

The mayor insisted that this is not a leisure trip- he says Kerry would never do that with 14 days to the election. He knows, from his inner workings with the Dem. party, that this is desperation on their part.

This may be the best news I've heard all day. On the one hand, if Kerry really thinks he can afford the luxury of taking time off to go duck hunting so close to the election, that would be a really worrisome indicate of what their private polls say. On the other hand, if the mayor is right and this is not a leisure trip, then Kerry's private polling must be horrible. I'll take the mayor's word for it that the situation is the latter one.

I heard the entire interview.

He says Kerry must know he's in trouble in Ohio if he has to go to Younstown four times.

There's no way in the world that the hunt is anything more than merely a photo-op. It's staged to show gun owners that Kerry supports hunting rights, and that he's a real man instead of some wimpy French elitist.

That's why he asked, "Can I get me a hunting license here?" at the Ohio store. Yep, John Kerry is just an uneducated hick, when he thinks he's surrounded by uneducated hicks.

The guy is a total phony, but you knew that.

Here in PA the late Governor Bob Casey's son (Bob Jr., the auditor general) is shilling for Kerry. His pro-life dad must be turning in his grave.

We heard him at the Bush rally a couple weeks ago in Cuyahoga Falls - very powerful speech, invoked Zell, spoke from the same kind of perspective as Zell. Needless to say, he was very well received. :)

sKerry isn't taking time off, not 2 weeks away from election day. Ohio poll numbers for them must stink to high heaven.

you gotta look at it this way:
the dems... still DON'T like us, or even Bush.


the mainstream dems are TERRIFIED of the end of our nation if Kerry gets elected. They don't LOVE Rush, or W, or the idea of 'one man one woman' marriages. They don't want to end abortion on demand.... they just don't want us all to die of a biological war we lost because dumbass john wants to have conjugal relationships with france, germany and the terrorist nations of the planet...

Hence their vote for W is almost an "anybody but john f-king kerry".
Democrats like lieberman and koch and now this mayor from youngstown... are not ever going to be conservatives... but they ARE the vestigal leftovers of a once great american party...

and as far to the right of john kerry as these 'moderates' appear to sound or speak... they are miles to the left of what the republican and conservative movement is at its core.

the radicalized version of the 'allegedly' hijacked democrat party, has left these men behind and abandoned what used to be the democrat party's core principles. We are witnessing the destruction of the democrat party. They got nowhere else to go...

and they are having to face reality regarding conservatives that they have disdained for YEARS on talk radio. Calling Rush, "Mr. Limbaugh" is part of that new reality... they probably cannot believe they are doing what they have HAD to do... to save their 'bacon'. They almost cannot even say "Mr. Limbaugh" without cringing.

This is good for them... and their disciples who are abandoning the leftie fringers who now have firm grasp of the party they once loved.

and good to hear they are waking up...

"do they have spas in youngstown?"

Yes,but not the kind for the rich kids unless he wants a body shampoo & happy ending....not sure they'd show JF'inK walking into a place like that :)

By the way,my parents are from Youngstown and are absolutely beside themselves that this Mayor would endorse Bush.I have been trying to tell my parents also that the Democratic party is not what it once was.They rely only on crap like Cbs,Abc,nightline etc....to educate themselves in politics so they are very skewed.

This definitely spells trouble for sKerry in Ohio. The mayor said he has received many calls from Democrats that feel the same way he does.

Son lives in Cincinnati and we just visited last week. Was happy to see all the SUPPORT OUR TROOPS ribbons on the cars. Some Kerry bumper stickers but not that many.

I think most people have the troop ribbons on instead of Bush/Cheney stickers to protect their cars from vandalism.

I didn't write clearly, I meant that the mayor said the Youngstown area usually votes 70% Democrat...not the state of Ohio as a whole. The mayor found it very odd Kerry would be returning specifically to Youngstown, which *should* be a waste of Kerry's time in these last two weeks.

WE are screwing up their plan to take over this nation. See David's latest book:

________________________________________________________________

Unholy Alliance

by David Horowitz
Hardcover - (September 2004) - $27.95

In this tour de force on the most important issue of our time, David Horowitz, confronts the paradox of how so many Americans, including the leadership of the Democratic Party, could turn against the War on Terror. He finds an answer in a political Left that shares a view of America as the “Great Satan” with America’s radical Islamic enemies. In a remarkable exploration of the “Mind of the Left,” Horowitz traces the evolution of American radicalism from its Communist past to its “anti-war” present. He then shows how this Left was able to turn the Democratic Party presidential campaign around and reshape its views on the War on Terror.

I was born and raised in Youngstown and while it's a Democratic stronghold, I wonder if there might be a little movement to President Bush there. While it's a very fiercely blue collar and pro-union, but the fact of the matter is that the area has been economically depressed beginning 30 years ago with the decline of the steel mills.

I also know there are a fair amount of Vietnam Veterans in northeastern Ohio/Western PA and I'm not sure if any post vote polls will get that specific, but I'd bet Kerry will get less votes statistically than he "should."

By the way, regarding the "Mr. Limbaugh", Mayor McKelvey is just an old school (although not old) respectful guy that wouldn't presume to call someone by their first name. I've met the Mayor on various occasions and he's a first class guy, although I must admit, he's being pilloried by many back home. He joins Senator Zell Miller and Mayor Ed Koch as people who vote their conscience and not party lines, something we need more of, one all sides.

Saw Kerry on Fox today. They aired him giving a speech. Boy, did he look awful, like he hadn't slept in a week. That was before I heard about the new polls. Wasn't surprised his face said it all. He's going down and he knows it. I'd say "Yippee" but I don't want to gloat.

You took the word right off my post. Coming to the base to crank up the turnout is the NORM and not the deviation.

I live in central New York State. When Hillary Clinton was running for Senator there were many, many signs for Lazio, but none for her. Riding around I don't see any signs for President Bush and none for Kerry. In this neck of the woods you wouldn't even know there's a very important Presidential election coming up in a couple of weeks. Almost every car around here sports a yellow "Support Our Troops" metallic ribbon. And we are voting for President Bush in this household.

I totally relate. My parents are 80 year old Michigan dems who are still living with the dem party of old. On a bright note...mom reluctantly cast her absentee ballot for GWB the other day...dad went for Kerry but he is a vet...still hates bush41...and has serious dementia. Atleast they cancelled each others votes out.

BTW...I'm in central Ohio and I think GWB will do fine here. Kerry is in panic mode!

This is the state where Kerry is making his "last stand". I hope Bush spends at least most of the last two weeks in the state, and for goodness sakes he shouldn't be taking a breather on the final weekend the way he did in 2000.
