    A Denver police sergeant is under investigation for allegedly threatening to arrest a woman Monday for displaying on her truck a derogatory bumper sticker about President Bush. "He told her that this was a warning and that the next time he saw her truck, she was going to be arrested if she didn't remove the sticker," said Alinna Figueroa, 25, assistant manager of The UPS Store where the confrontation took place. "I couldn't believe it." Denver police have initiated an investigation into the alleged incident, said Police Chief Gerry Whitman. He declined to comment further. About 11 a.m., Shasta Bates,...

    BIGGEST ELECTION WINNER IS BIBLICAL MORALITY “Morals” were the number one issue in the presidential election and Biblical marriage won against homosexuals in 11 out of 11 states. While some outcomes are unclear, this one is over and Christianity is the clearest and biggest winner. Bush won over 70% of those who say “morals” was the top issue in their minds and this gave him an historic number of votes. This translated into more Americans voting for President Bush than any presidential candidate in American history—even more than the popular Ronald Reagan! It meant Bush was the first presidential candidate...

    President George W. Bush couldn't make time for an interview with Black Entertainment Television, but he did sit down last week in the White House's Map Room with Mario Kreutzberger, also known as "Don Francisco," host of Univision's variety show, Sabado Gigante, for an interview that will air Oct. 30. Bush was interviewed for the show Oct. 21, just two days after declining a long-standing invitation from BET saying the President couldn't fit it into his schedule, according to BET. Democratic candidate John Kerry will also appear on Sabado Gigante Oct. 30. His interview (both interviews were about 12 minutes...

    BIRD-IN-HAND, Pa. - The Amish live without electricity, cars, telephones, and usually, without voting. But they are being sought out this year as Republicans try to sign up every possible supporter in presidential battleground states. Amish almost always side with the Republican Party when they do vote - making them an attractive, if unlikely, voting bloc in the neck-and-neck campaign between President Bush and Democratic nominee John Kerry. A majority of the nation's Amish live in key swing states like Pennsylvania and Ohio. "Pennsylvania and Ohio are just absolute battleground states, and to think that the Amish could weigh in...
  • 'Unhappy Workers Should Take Prozac'--Bush campaigneer

    A campaign worker for President Bush (news - web sites) said on Thursday American workers unhappy with low-quality jobs should find new ones -- or pop a Prozac to make themselves feel better. "Why don't they get new jobs if they're unhappy -- or go on Prozac?" said Susan Sheybani, an assistant to Bush campaign spokesman Terry Holt. The comment was apparently directed to a colleague who was transferring a phone call from a reporter asking about job quality, and who overheard the remark. When told the Prozac comment had been overheard, Sheybani said: "Oh, I was just kidding." While...

    Showing a strong offense against his opponents, a strong defense of his record and a flair for spectacle, President Bush took his re-election campaign more than 100 miles by bus across eastern Wisconsin on Wednesday.~snip~To thousands of Wisconsinites not at the rallies, Bush's visit meant a caravan of buses and support vehicles traveling along main streets of Menomonee Falls, Sussex, West Bend, Kewaskum, Fond du Lac, Oshkosh, Neenah, Menasha, Appleton and Grand Chute like an unexpected, brief but remarkable reprise of the Fourth of July. Thousands of people lined the way, many waving flags or pro-Bush signs. Although clearly outnumbered,...

    Bush Says Bin Laden's Soul Is 'Corroded' WASHINGTON - In a magazine interview, President Bush said evil people can become good, but as for al-Qaida mastermind Osama bin Laden, "This guy's soul is so corroded, there's just no way." "As far as I'm concerned, there's nothing redeemable about him," the president told Ladies' Home Journal in an April interview at his Texas ranch and published in the magazine's new issue, with the cover featuring photos of George and Laura Bush and John and Teresa Heinz Kerry. Bush also agreed with the magazine's interviewer that there are indications America is having...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Bush's reelection campaign, in a tacit acknowledgment it is having trouble getting its message through, said on Sunday it would step up efforts to convince voters the economy and handover plans for Iraq are on track. The two-week drive will be spearheaded by Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney and first lady Laura Bush, and will include an expanded television advertising campaign focused on the economy in 19 battleground states. The campaign's goal is to shift voters' attention from grim news about prisoner abuses and targeted assassinations in Iraq that have overshadowed the formation of a new...

    By MICHAEL RUBINKAM, Associated Press Writer PHILADELPHIA - Don King, the wild-haired boxing promoter, is touring the country with Republican National Committee (news - web sites) chairman Ed Gillespie to tout President Bush (news - web sites)'s re-election. "Only in America," as King often says — and he did at a stop in Philadelphia Wednesday. "People understand that George Walker Bush is the man with the plan to make America better," King, sporting an American flag tie and plenty of diamond-encrusted jewelry, told a group of black business leaders at a downtown jazz club. "Sometimes, just sometimes, it ain't too...

    It was a typical week in the life of the Bush reelection machine. Last Monday in Little Rock, Vice President Cheney said Democratic presidential candidate John F. Kerry "has questioned whether the war on terror is really a war at all" and said the senator from Massachusetts "promised to repeal most of the Bush tax cuts within his first 100 days in office." On Tuesday, President Bush's campaign began airing an ad saying Kerry would scrap wiretaps that are needed to hunt terrorists. The same day, the Bush campaign charged in a memo sent to reporters and through surrogates that...

    WASHINGTON - Nancy Sinatra may wear boots made for walking, but she rode to the White House yesterday on the back of a motorcycle. The daughter of Frank Sinatra was part of a delegation of Rolling Thunder officials and others who met President Bush near the South Portico of the White House. Nancy Sinatra, who recorded "These Boots Were Made For Walking" in 1966, rode in wearing a knee-high skirt, dark shades and black cowboy boots. Rolling Thunder President Artie Muller was at the handlebars. Rolling Thunder, which provides information about Americans missing in action in the Vietnam War and...

    In April, Zack Exley was named director of Internet organizing for presidential candidate Sen. John F. Kerry of Massachusetts, making him the Democrat's point man on the cyber front in the battle for voters. His background: the operator of a satirical website called GWBush.com and the subject of a federal complaint filed by lawyers for George Bush, according to a report in the LA Times. Exley’s GWBush.com site in 1999 featured doctored photos of then-Governor Bush with cocaine residue under his nose. Exley also posted fake campaign statements under such headlines as "George II: Restoring the Throne to its Rightful...

    The Weekly Standard ^ | May 10, 2004 | Fred Barnes, for the Editors
    THE BUSH CAMPAIGN has performed well since John Kerry wrapped up the Democratic presidential nomination on March 2. But not nearly well enough. The Bush TV ads have been crisp and clever and have put Kerry on the defensive. Speeches by the president and the vice president and a host of Republican officeholders have added to Kerry's distress. But there's a giant hole in the Bush campaign. Social and cultural issues, important to so many Americans who don't call themselves Republicans, have been all but ignored.These issues--especially gay marriage--may cause discomfort when raised among elites inside the Washington-New York-Los Angeles...

    The country may be going broke, but in just nine months President Bush has amassed more than $175 million to spend on his re-election, the most any candidate has collected in a presidential election. The reason Bush has been so successful is that he has a good gimmick. He has assembled 151 individuals he calls "Rangers," who have raised more than $200,000 each, and 241 he calls "Pioneers," who have raised at least $100,000 each. Now, he's added a third group of fund-raisers -- individuals under 40 who have raised at least $50,000. There are 52 people in that category,...

    WASHINGTON - Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry (news - web sites) called Wednesday for deeper tax cuts for the middle class than proposed by President Bush (news - web sites) and described his Republican critics as "the most crooked ... lying group I've ever seen." The chairman of Bush's re-election campaign called on Kerry to apologize "for this negative attack." After urging labor leaders to support his campaign, Kerry met with one-time rival Howard Dean (news - web sites) to discuss an endorsement and what role the former Vermont governor might play in his campaign. Hoping to win over Dean,...

    George W. Bush has a new website up, and upon seeing it, you have to admit -- this is a campaign that "gets" the web. Their website consolidates many of the tools that the Democratic challengers and their supporters have been experimenting with, and they are well implemented. Particularly impressive is their Action Center, which has one the the coolest, most useful tools I've ever seen: If you scroll about halfway down the page, you'll see a field where you can input your zip code -- once you do, you'll be given a large list of newspapers and radio shows...
