Oh yeah...let's see now; could it be President Kerry, or could it be President Gephardt, or is it President LIEberman, or President Edwards, or maybe President Dean, or maybe you're fantasizing about President-elect Sharpton.
Yep, I like it when a RINO, right here on the Forum, chooses to express their true person for all to see.
Don't underestimate the power of the media and the rest of the liberal establishment to find a way to torpedo Bush's re-election bid. Think of the huge approval ratings for Bush the elder before the lies about job layoffs and the "worst economy in a decade". Clinton was anointed by the liberal establishment to be president and the press acted as a vast PR machine for Clinton from the get go. Do you remember seeing what happened in the last few months before that election?
There is an ongoing effort to discredit everything that our president does and stands for. There are enough clueless people who are buying into it all that it is affecting his numbers. That in turn fuels reports saying that:
"The American People increasingly disapprove of the actions of the president."
If a lie is repeated enough people will believe it.
I am a staunch conservative. I always vote straight ticket Republican. I also admit the the nickname "the stupid party" for the GOP is well earned. For instance what did Bob Dole's candidacy do except help insure the re-election of Clinton?
You don't think Bush is vulnerable to a last minute campaign of lies? Never underestimate the enemy. They could call Bush a pedophile and get away with it. Except to most of them, that would be a virtuous title.
Your list didn't mention the biggest opposing threat... HRC
The Republican party will have to behave more shrewdly than it has in the past or we are going to see Jezebel and Ahab back in the Whitehouse '05 or '09.
