ELECTION 2002 Bush ups ante with tax attack on rival

By Mark Silva | Sentinel Political Editor
Posted October 20, 2002

TALLAHASSEE -- The governor's race is going nuclear, with Gov. Jeb Bush launching a TV ad warning that Democratic rival Bill McBride's promises add up to a pile of new taxes -- maybe even the biggest taboo of all, a state income tax....

This reminds me of the effort Bush made to win California in 2000. Let the Dems spend their capital on a symbolic win. Every dollar spent in Florida is one less for Carnahan or Johnson. Bush isn't going to lose Florida.

I think I heard that the DNC, MacAuliffe, and some of Willie's friends are even taking their cigarette boats out of drug transport service between Cuba and Miami for a couple of days to transport voters in from Jamaica and Haiti. The Haitians were a little unhappy because they are paid less per vote than the lighter skined Jamaicans and threatened to go to the Florida Supreme Court. It all got worked out, the Haitians receive less on votes 1 through 5 but for each vote from 6 on up, the dems will pay them both the same.

I wonder what the geezers in Broward county will do to amuse us this time.

"Another strategist said, "…I think we can fix this."

Fix. The double entendre is ominous.

A McBride win means more to Democrats than just an ordinary garden variety gubernatorial victory.

Democrats would spin a McBride win into national repudiation of the Bush administration and its policies.

This signals to me that the McAuliffe/Clinton machine might be expecting to lose the Senate and are looking ahead to capitalize on whatever political symbolism they can gain to use against Bush in 2004.

It's also interesting that despite the DNC's attempts to turn voter anger over the FL 2000 debacle into a Jeb Bush defeat did not and are not working. Shows how quickly voters forget. Their base is not yet energized in Florida.

We're seeing signs of that everywhere. Once the Iraq Resolution was passed, Democrat leaders were out on the stump with a message that could only appeal to the far left base. They don't have their base wrapped up yet and the election is 2 weeks away!

OK! Someone who may be able to answer some questions! Or at least, who knows who to ask!

I had a strange encounter of a Democratic kind today, in a restaurant in Liberty City.

I ran into a "get out the vote" worker, passing out a handout designed to "inform" people on how to vote this coming tuesday.

I grabbed the handout.

Here it is:

....

Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

I don't see any information as to who paid for these handouts posted, I thought that had to be there.
