email from John Kerry, fund raising for Tim Kaine

Before Bush Leaves Virginia Today

Date: Thu, 21 Jul 2005 12:25:55 -0500

Dear xxxxx,

The Kilgore campaign asked George W. Bush to come to Virginia today in a desperate attempt to recover from their candidate's gaffe-filled performance in Saturday's gubernatorial debate.

Tim Kaine was the clear winner in this year's first face off between the two candidates. If we move quickly we can build on Lt. Governor Kaine's momentum and move an important step closer to ensuring Tim Kaine's victory this November.

Today, Bush is coming to Virginia to stand with Jerry Kilgore to try to sell Kilgore's failed programs and irresponsible policies to your fellow Virginians. With his fiscal recklessness and mean-spirited, negative campaign tactics Jerry Kilgore is wrong for Virginia.

We will not allow him to turn back the clock to the old days when Virginia was running massive deficits and the transportation and educational needs of the state were going unmet.

Bush will use his fundraising network to fill Kilgore's campaign coffers with checks from powerful special interest groups and hard-right ideologues. Let's use our grassroots power to help Tim Kaine fight back. If you want Tim Kaine to continue his fight for honest budgeting, giving every kid a good education, keeping faith with Virginia veterans, creating good jobs throughout the state, and protecting habitat for fishing and hunting, then you need to do everything you can to put Tim Kaine in Virginia's governor's office.

Virginia is one of only two gubernatorial races this year. It will be closely watched to see which party has a vision for the future that inspires voters at the polls. You can help stop Bush in 2005 by acting today.

Join with the Johnkerry.com community in Virginia as we kick off a special one-day fundraising campaign to give Tim Kaine a strong grassroots boost.

Kilgore and Bush think this is their day in Virginia. Let's prove them wrong.

By the time Bush returns to the White House tonight, let's show that thousands of Virginians are committed to maintaining Democratic control of the governor's office by electing Tim Kaine this November.

Please pass this message along to everyone you know in Virginia. In the next 24 hours, let's stand with Tim Kaine.

Thank you,

John Kerry

No, thirty-five Purple Hearts. He was awarded his last one after a windsurfing accident. Under a microscope it was revealed that that the skin on his kneecap was scratched when he fell and hit a seashell in two feet of water.

If Timmy really wants to do it 'right' and maximize the 'Kerry effect', he needs to start sprinkling his speeches with French, taking wind-surfing lessons, and nibbling on a few gin-soaked raisins. Actually, I think the gin-soaked raisin strategy has already been implemented ..............

John Kerry still has friends?

I guess that, along with the view the Kilgore's debate performance was gaffe filled and that Kaine has momentum are all part of his delusional lollipop land and gumdrop world that he lives in.

Despite all the predictions otherwise, Kilgore kicked Timmy's butt.

We will not allow him to turn back the clock to the old days


This is showing up more and more by the Democrats, weren't they in charge of the 'clock' in the old days?

THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A DEFICIT IN THE VIRGINIA BUDGET YOU METROSEXUAL MASSACHUSETTS MORON!

Thanks to Mark Warner's tax increase the current surplus (read "rainy day fund") may very well hit the $1 billion mark.

To the best of my knowledge, Virginia has a law against deficit spending.

My point exactly. And for all the pi$$ing and moaning they did during the Gilmore years, there was NEVER a budget deficit.

Even when the RINOS and RATS were screaming at Jim Gilmore for the car tax, the fact is the budget NEVER decreased, it simply increased by smaller margins.

Wouldn’t it be great if the majority of the electorate actually thought for themselves instead of believing every campaign ad they see?
