Even at 52%, Bush still crushes Dean and Hillary... Although his poll #s have fallen, I'd love to see Dean's/Hill's numbers as well...

Interesting flip to see job approval BELOW matchup numbers. I think it speaks to an artificial low regarding job approval and media inflatred negativity.

Judging from the insanity on view in Iowa I doubt many Americans will be drawn to the dem/traitor party.

Just wait for the abrupt, prayed for, hurricane-like turn to the right after the nomine is named. It will make Snow White look like the slut from hell! I'm in that Hillary will run in 04 and that this fervor for Dean will solidify their base (obviously) and she will run either by declaration or a "humble, reluctanct, acceptance of the will of the American People and their children". That way she gets to start from the middle right and play back if needed. The base smells blood; they would vote for a tree.
She's depending on the swing voters and if she thinks she can dupe them; the bitch is back.
Note: I wish they (clintons) would fall off the earth.
Note: I noticed that the "prayed for right hand turn" is projected for the hurricane. May it keep turning right; spare our coast (East).

More proof the news media's been lying to you about Dean and Hillary's "popularity."

This is the Mainstream Media Shenanigans ping list. Please freepmail me to be added or dropped.
Please note this is a medium- to high-volume list.
Please feel free to ping me if you come across a thread you would think worthy of this ping list. I can't catch them all!

I find it deeply interesting that amongst all voters, the support for GWB vs Howard Dean has not changed one iota in two solid months, despite almost every day of those two months being a nonstop news media orgy celebrating Deandom.

Once again, we see that the "mainstream" media has lost most of its power to control what the public knows and thinks.

Just remember that there is nothing in the world that would energize the Republican base like the possibility of a President Hillary. It would be like Florida 2000, except lasting for six to nine months instead of one.

And we'd once again win in the end.

This is "Dem time", when it comes to "run time" you won't recognize the candidate and it won't remember, acknowledge, accept, advocate, etc. anything except what "red america" needs. Watch out, here comes Patrick (Patricia)Henry. BTW, why are we the red states? Did we loose a coin toss?

Watch California, it's Hillary's blueprint to the White House.

The principled will stand away from the leading contender because he's not conservative enough, and support an unelectable third candidate.

Sound familiar?

Yes. He could even be her VP running mate.

And yes, he could then become president again if Hitlery were to resign, die, be impeached, etc. The 22nd Amendment only says a person cannot be ELECTED president more than twice, so if Hitlery somehow fell by the wayside, Bill would automatically reascend to the presidency because it wouldn't be the result of an election. It is without question, though, that he could not run again for further terms after that if that were to happen.

There would certainly be a court challenge if this were ever to occur, and it would end up back at the Supreme Court, but they'd rule for old BJ, because the 22nd is quite clear on the matter.

He has gone from 90% on September 13th,2001 to 52-58%. I am not impressed at all. If he was at 68% I would be impressed. He is in trouble.

Oh dear lord

I was thinking in the line that she would appoint him as her Sec of State or something

What you just described scares the heck out of me because I could see them doing that

Yeah, but I have to admit I'd rather have Bill than Hillary. Bill's a sleazeball, but IMHO it's always been more about popularity for him; he just wants to be the center of attention. Hitlery, on the other hand, wants to change the world and turn America ultrasocialist. (Remember, it was "HillaryCare," not "BillCare," and when it blew up in her face, Bill did nothing to save her pet project ... he wanted to remain popular and get reelected.)

"But no person constitutionally ineligible for the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice-President of the United States." (last line of XII Amendment)

He's not constitutionally ineligible of serving if he finds himself in the right place at the right time and is appointed to the presidency. He's only ineligible to be elected.

That line of the Twelfth Amendment was put in to ensure that nobody could ever run for the presidency with a VP candidate who was completely unqualified to take over if something happened (an 18-year-old coed, a non-native citizen, etc). After all, that would defeat half of the purpose of having a VP in the first place. Bill Clinton is native-born, over 35 ... he's qualified. He just cannot attain that office again by running and getting elected.

Thanks for the ping.

The mediots/videoits have been lying about President Bush's popularity for weeks since their failed Yellowcake Scam.

Then, those lies are posted by their bed buddies on Free Republic, the pseudo conservatives as dire warnings about November 2004.

This is 2003, and they don't control the news anymore. Their attempts to electronically lynch our president have failed and will continue to fail.

In spite of losing the ability to control the thoughts and poltical moods of America, the mediots and videoits are so arrogant, they still think that they can win as with Viet Nam.

We won't let it happen.
