How Bush Did It
Newsweek ^ | 11/4/04 | Evan Thomas

Posted on 11/04/2004 4:14:47 PM PST by paudio

Nov. 15 issue - In the winter of 2003-04, Jenna Bush, one of president Bush's 22-year-old twin daughters, dreamed that her father lost the election. Jenna had never before shown any interest in politics or much desire to get involved in her father's campaigns. But now she, along with her sister, Barbara, volunteered to help their father get re-elected. The president was overjoyed to have the girls on the campaign bus, recalled his wife, Laura. His mood lightened, to the relief of his handlers, who had been anxiously discussing their candidate's surliness and impatience.

Bush could come out tomorrow in a military uniform, a peaked cap, black knee boots, and dual pistols. I wish he would, it would be so much fun. Maybe a crop.

And the rest of us were lucky that these 2 young babes were on TV and pictures during the campaign. Texas women are the most beautiful women in the world.

The blonde. I thought she was the less better looking but I met her on the campaign trail. Wow! I'm telling you, she's a very attractive young woman.

Bush then actually won by an 18% majority, since Thomas was the jerk who said the media was worth 15% to Kerry

You can tell Eleanor "over the" Clift helped write this drivel.

You can see her hand near the end with the "ugly campaign" and "beat up Kerry" rhetoric. She's a broken record.

Bush did not remember Kerry but he knew the type: sanctimonious suck-ups who looked down on fun-loving fellows like George W. Bush. In the world according to Bush, guys like Kerry were not out just to ruin Yale. They wanted to take over the whole country, to impose the smug, know-it-all liberal ideology on regular, God-fearing, hardworking Americans. Kerry's regard for Bush was just as dismissive. Kerry may or may not have met Bush at Yale but he had met his kind before. At Kerry's prep school, boys like Bush were known as "regs," regular guys, the cool, sarcastic in-crowd that made awkward, too-eager-to-please boys like John F. Kerry feel low and left out. The regs were insular, stuck up, too sure of themselves to reach out to, or even see, the wider world.




Kerry was a social misfit and still is.

Bush was a party animal and liked to have fun. When he gave up the party life he was very disciplined and used his ability.

"Alexandra Kerry, the Democratic nominee's 31-year-old daughter, disliked politics, but she campaigned hard for her father anyway, until one day hecklers called her a "baby killer." Weeping in her father's arms, she confessed her fear that the Republicans would steal the election. Kerry comforted her, telling her that he would not let that happen (just in case, his campaign recruited 10,000 lawyers)."

Well she DID support killing babies. Liberals can dish it out but they can't take it.

Texas women are the most beautiful women in the world.

I might respectfully argue that, but they sure beat liberal Massachusetts women. I was concerned that we might find ourselves in a situation where we would have to shave the First Lady's ass and train her to walk backwards. Thank God we retained one of the most beautiful and classiest First Ladies we've ever had.

Typical Newsweak tripe.

For the last month, a lot of us sat here and wondered how anyone could not see through that superficial POS, John F'n Kerry.

How in the world could anyone vote for him?

Do you now realize why? It's because MSM hid his faults, covered for his inconsistencies, demonized President Bush and did their damndest to get this poser and traitor elected.

AND THEY FAILED. AND THEY WILL NEVER GET AWAY WITH THIS KIND OF CRAP AGAIN. IT'S OVER FOR MSM.

I know, it's embarrassing. Every time they're over, I'm always calling them by the wrong name.

Oh, wait, that was a dream too.

I believe I read somewhere that one of the Kerry daughters had an abortion - maybe that's what it's about?

Bush didn't do it and Jenna didn't do it.

WE did it, with a little help from the good Lord.

I had that same dream at the same time, (well, daydream in my case) and thought the president would lose right up until Tuesday night. I am very happy to concede how wrong I was.

Now the president surprises again as he is apparently going to push hard for major tax reform and social security private accounts. Go Bush go!!!

Jenna is the one who looks like Barbara Sr and Barbara is the one who looks like Laura's mom. IOW, to cut down on confusion, Jenna should have been named Barbara and Barbara should have been named Jenna. LOL Jenna has lighter hair.

NOTICE the author: EVAN THOMAS...who said that the MSM would be worth 15% to Kerry. This idiot hates Bush and red state America. He'll write like it too.

President Bush has self-confidence rather than a ego the author speaks of and I think that is good.

"Her father called himself a baby killer and war criminal so what was her problem......the truth is the truth."

That's the way I see it too.

From her view I'd bet she was thinking, "WELL, I wouldn't do something like THAT!" "Don't call ME, a babykiller."

Can someone remind this twit of HYPOCRISY?

Abortion pushers like this are merely hypocritical elitists.

Kerry's wife, teraaza, had an abortion. I dob't know about his daughter.

I'm not convinced teraaza wanted to be in the Whitehouse.
