George Bushes fault - I am proud to say
BUSTED! the Red Dye No. 2 Salesmen Conspiracy
It was the boegyman! Didn't they tell you?
Obviously, this was to the article author, not the poster. We're all friends here.
Manistee, Alpena, Monroe, Macomb, Calhoun, Iron, Clare, Ogemaw, Roscommon, and Iosco all switched. Most are rural and socially conservative.
Easy, the media decided that from now on blue would not mean challenger, blue means Democrat for the MSM.
Seriously, the sleeping gian awoke.
When I lived in Chicago area, I loved going to UP at
Indianhead, Blackjack etc. Colder than heck, but gorgeous
Because a few years ago the MSM decided that Democrats would be Blue and Republicans would now be red.
In 1988 the GOP states were BLUE.
The Democrats' campaign.
I think the color of red is a much better representation of what the Democratic party stands for. ;)
Jill Lawrence and company are merely looking at the same nuts and bolts - almost as if Nancy Pelosi had written the "talking points". They miss the point of the red states and President Bush's election -- near entirely, IMHO.
"5. Nuts and bolts"
Nuts in the Dem leadership caused their former voters to bolt.
When I moved to Lake Jackson Texas in 1973 I could not find another Republican. I kept my mouth shut about politics. Now it is RARE to find a Democrat around here......
It helped tremendously that Dem supporters continued to use coarse language. Basically, the overall message was: If you vote for Kerry, you get a country like these Democrat followers and supporters.
Nude protestors against Bush? Yep. Just invite them home. F*** Bush signs? Definitely proponents of a strong educational system, elect these people to your school boards.
How about vilifying Viet Nam Vets? Uh, doesn't require a rocket scientist to figure out how many men did return home from this war and are voters.
How about.. FRAUD?
And then of course, there were the Hollywood stars and starlets campaigning against President Bush and for John Kerry (er, something like that...). Who cares? Like, because we watch movies these folks act in, we are going to find them entirely believable in real life? I don't t'ink so.. The Hollywoodites treated the average America as "stupid" in even positing and posturing themselves as "leaders". That because we'd see their movies and enjoy them.. we'd just move like a blob into agreeing with their "political views". Very offensive. This was very offensive. The rich people of Hollywood lecturing to the "hicks", right?
Yep. The extremely rich Mr. Soros. Mr. Euthanasia, pro-pot, anti-America type rich dude for Democrats. After 30+ years of Dems slamming the "filthy" rich... they didn't think that putting Soros forward as their lead guy wasn't going to backlash on 'em?
Nuts, alright. lol!
I'm in Boone co and the city of Columbia proper thinks it Haight Ashbury circa '68. Its or rather they're really pathetic, teens whose parents are burnt out hippydippy types with thier grateful dead skateboards and tiedye T shirts, inscence shops (THE NEW ECONOMY), enough leftwing tenured never got their hands dirty professor types to confuse the minds of whole generations of youth, That Bush won here is like Sharon winning in Tehran.
If all voters had to stick their finger in ink, the dems would be more irrelevent.
That's a great map, thanks.
I'm still 500 miles behind enemy lines.
What better way to portray Republicans?
At least in their little twisted, socialist minds.
Did you check USA Today's 2000 map? It said GWB defeated "Sen. Al Gore." Huh? Al Gore was a senator in 2000? That's some good reporting.
Surprised NH R strenth is in the SE.
"I put it elsewhere like this: ......."
Yep. You've summed up some very important points, nicely.
Those people may not necessarily be insane or evil -- but they sure insane and evil in that montage.
Oops ~ we mustn't forget these 2 treasures of treasures who recently took center stage for the Dems:
OMG! I'm going to have nightmares for weeks.
Parents, don't let your children see this!
It looks like Hitlary is thinking "How in the name of Satan am I supposed to become President with these buffoons at the front of the party?"
The blue tumors are getting smaller and denser
and they're strategically located for slipping under the sea with a shake or a tsunami - Does God have a plan :>)
The color red or blue was for the challenger and incumbunt. Since Bush in 1988 was the sitting VP he was considered the incumbent.
Well, I Say Family Values!
The Democratic party is not "weak" on national security.
It has a firm position combining high minded buffoonery with outright treason.
The most interesting thing about this article is that it is being printed in a national newspaper three months after the election, and after a thousand basically identical articles have been published and broadcast all over the country.
What does this mean, coming on the eve of the SOTU speech?
Hollywood Bananas Over Bush Billboards
Citizens United, headed by former Whitewater investigator David Bossie, is set to release this week three billboards in view of the Kodak Theater where the Oscars are to be held later this month.
A barrage of billboard messages expressing gratitude to Hollywood for its "help" in re-electing George W. Bush is about to hit Tinseltown....
The billboards will, with a touch of sarcasm, "thank" Hollywood for helping to re-elect George Bush.
The ads will feature such liberal celebrities as Michael Moore, Whoopi Goldberg, Ben Affleck, Martin Sheen, Chevy Chase, Barbra Streisand and Sean Penn all of whom the billboards credit with the President's November victory
... yeah... the Dems wouldn't be able to pout and suck their thumbs in public.. lol!
You left out the fact that he portrayed himself as a war hero and wasn't. He was mostly hot air.
If you look at the previous years (all listed on the left of the site page) you'll see it was GOP = Blue and Dems = Red. Until 2000.
