    WAUSAU - In his eighth trip to the Badger State since spring, President Bush asked thousands of his faithful supporters at Marathon Park on Thursday for Wisconsin's help as Election Day nears. Bush's Boeing 757 airplane landed around 2:40 p.m. at Central Wisconsin Airport in Mosinee, and with surgical precision, the president greeted local Republicans, including Jim Jacobson of Horizon Development Group and Gerald Whitburn, president and chief executive officer of Church Mutual Insurance Co. in Merrill, before jumping in an armored limousine for the 15-minute drive to Wausau along a deserted Highway 51. Accompanying the president was National Security...

    September 9, 2004 Documents Suggest Special Treatment for Bush in Guard By KATHARINE Q. SEELYE and RALPH BLUMENTHAL ASHINGTON, Sept. 8 - President Bush's Vietnam-era service in the National Guard came under renewed scrutiny on Wednesday as newfound documents emerged from his squadron commander's file that suggested favorable treatment. At the same time, a once powerful Texas Democrat came forward to say that he had "abused my position of power" by helping Mr. Bush and others join the Guard. Democrats also worked to stoke the issue with a new advertisement by a Texas group that featured a former lieutenant colonel,...

    Washington, DC, Sep. 9 (UPI) -- The Cybercast News Service reported Thursday documents casting doubt on the U.S. president's national guard service might be fakes. CNS, an Internet-based news organization affiliated with a conservative media watchdog group, said the 32-year-old documents used by CBS to cast "a negative light on President Bush's service in the Texas Air National Guard, may have been forged using a current word processing program." The news organization said three independent typography tests indicated "they were suspicious of the documents" because they used a modern Microsoft Word font feature that was not available in 1972 or...

    Anti-terrorism policy drives away Muslims, Arab-Americans, who favored Bush in 2000. George W. Bush got the Arab-American and Muslim vote in the 2000 presidential election, and the endorsement of local Arab and Muslim organizations, because he courted those communities. His aides met and spoke to advocacy groups and to mosques across the country. The president, while campaigning, said he would repeal Clinton administration laws that made it possible to charge someone without revealing the evidence against that person. But this year, the invasion of Iraq and the increased scrutiny of immigrants from Muslim nations has mobilized Arab-American and Muslim voters...

    ROSEMONT, Ill. (AP) They stop abruptly when they see the 5-foot-tall photo of President Bush, with ``'' above his head. Then come the outbursts. ``Disgusting,'' said one onlooker. ``Take that down,'' said another. At the largest annual convention of American Muslims in this Chicago suburb, a pro-Bush booth has stirred anger among attendees who believe the president's actions since Sept. 11, 2001, have hurt more innocent Muslims than terrorists. ``I think President Bush has misled not only the United States, but the world,'' said Noor Maciael, an educator who called the booth ``disgusting'' and planned to vote for Democrat John...

    NEW YORK -- At a Republican gathering in the heart of the nation's largest Jewish community, GOP strategists are trying to chip away at the long-standing bond between the Democratic Party and American Jews. Bush won just 19 percent of the Jewish vote in 2000, and no one expects dramatic gains for him this Election Day. But Republicans believe Bush's defense of Israel and his stand against terrorism have given them an excellent chance to attract more Jewish support this year. In a tight race, Republicans believe even a small shift to the GOP in closely contested states could help...

    (CPOD) Sept. 3, 2004 – George W.

    NEW YORK — Vice President Dick Cheney was stepping Wednesday up to denounce Democrat John Kerry's "confusion of conviction" after President Bush formally won the Republican nomination for a second term in a carefully choreographed GOP convention roll call. Tuesday night, before a roaring audience of delegates, Bush was lauded by his wife, Laura, and California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger as a man of strength and compassion. Bush "doesn't flinch, doesn't waver, does not back down," the Austrian-born former actor said. Added Mrs. Bush: "You can count on him, especially in a crisis."

    Rush Limbaugh radio show at 12:30 ^ | 31 August 2004 | President Bush
    President Bush stayed on message when Rush Limbaugh asked about his "win the war on terror" comment. He stated that the "long term solution is to liberate" the oppressed countries. He spoke of the "transformational power of freedom". These are main tenets of his Liberty Doctrine, which are fleshed out here: President Bush Delivers Graduation Speech at West Point as well as The National Security Strategy of the United States of America. President Bush is serious in stating that the solution to terrorism is to create a better atmosphere for democracy and liberty for all in the world.

    A recent poll shows Kerry's lead over President Bush has shrunk to only seven points. According to the Greenwich Time: Connecticut, which voted overwhelmingly for Al Gore in 2000, had been considered a lock for Kerry. But, according to the latest Quinnipiac University poll, conducted Aug. 11-17 among 1,079 registered voters, Kerry leads Bush by seven points -- 45 percent to 38 percent -- with independent candidate Ralph Nader, a Connecticut native, taking six percent of the vote. Bush leads Kerry 43 percent to 36 percent in Fairfield County, according to the same poll. Less than two months earlier, in...
