    ELECTION 2004: God's country Christians' support for Bush illustrates moral counterattack Gayle White - Staff Sunday, November 7, 2004 A maroon Ford Explorer making its way down I-85 Wednesday morning provided a rolling summary of the previous day's presidential election: A Christian fish symbol on the bumper, an American flag on the fender and, in the back window, an oval W '04 sticker. God, country and George W. Bush. Wednesday-morning quarterbacks poring over exit polls seemed surprised to find that "moral values" drove many people to vote for Bush, even if they were concerned about the economy and worried about...

    George Bush owes his triumph to the conservative values of small town America. America’s moral majority is made up, not of zealots, but ordinary folk who care. Welcome to the heart and soul of America. A sign greets visitors outside a truck stop with a resounding: "Let freedom reign." There is one white, wooden evangelical church and lots of Bush-Cheney posters along the roadside. The message on the way out is: "Support our troops." This is Crittenden, Kentucky, a Bible-belt hamlet where the sale of alcohol is banned. Yet it is not completely stuck in a prohibition era time-warp. People...

    Well I've done a search of the posts here at FreeRepublic to see if this has been posted already and I found nothing, so I want to put it up for everyone to see. Take a look at the map of the U.S. showing which counties returned a majority for Bush this past Tuesday: I think this puts a real exclamation point on the Bush victory. There is more to the Bush margin than votes alone, not that the 51% - 48% split is insignificant by any means. There is also geography. What does this map show? It looks to...

    A cowboy was herding his cattle in a remote pasture when suddenly a brand new BMW advanced out of a dust cloud towards him. The driver, a young man in an YSL suit, Fendi shoes, Bulgari sunglasses & an Armani tie leans out the window and asks the cowboy, "If I tell you exactly how many cows and calves you have in your herd, will you give me a calf?" The cowboy looks at the man, then looks at his peacefully grazing herd and calmly answers, "Sure, Why not?" The yuppie parks his car, whips out his Dell notebook computer,...

    WHY did Bush win? My first experience of the American hinterland was more than 30 years ago, on a long, lazy car drive: down from Germanic Cincinnati in Ohio; across the Blue Ridge Mountains in West Virginia, where the radio stations play wall-to-wall country music; southwards through the Carolinas, where the red earth sticks to the magnolia blossoms; then northwards again along the bleak Atlantic coast where the Wright Brothers first took to the air. It was a revelation: no New York skyscrapers, no urban sophistication, and my then American girlfriend had to slip a ring on her left hand...

    Democratic party supporter Moby wants to split America into three nations, following George W. Bush's Nov. 2 victory over Sen. John Kerry in the presidential election. The disappointed dance star concedes President Bush received the majority of votes nationwide, after claiming vast swathes of middle America and the Deep South -- but argues California and New York should be granted independence from Bush's administration, because they voted overwhelmingly in favor of Kerry. "America is essentially a right-wing Republican country. We might resist this fact, but it is a fact. It's not a fact in Manhattan. It's not a fact in...

    ONSENSUS OF THE EARLY VOTING REPORTS [11/02 10:42 AM] Here is one prediction I am willing to make based on the reports of long lines, big turnout, etc.: Bush will win a higher percentage of the vote in the deep-red states than he did in 2000. Of course, this won't help him get to 270 electoral votes. But it sounds like it might help him a bit in the psychologically-useful popular vote. There are just too many reports of longer-than-ever-before lines in very red states. Maybe, like in the case of Oklahoma, it may be Senate races. Maybe, like in...

    A new poll by Rasmussen Reports gives President Bush a 50 percent to 45 percent lead over Democratic Sen. John Kerry in Arizona. That mirrors an Arizona State University poll this week that also had Bush up by five points over Kerry. Recent surveys have shown Bush leading in Arizona by between five and 11 points. Bush carried Arizona by six percentage points over Al Gore in the 2000 presidential election. Rasmussen also released new polls on Wednesday showing Bush with narrow leads over Kerry in Nevada and New Mexico. The Southwest has become a top battleground in the Kerry-Bush...

    DENVER - President George W. Bush is holding onto his lead over Sen. John Kerry in the latest 9News poll conducted by Survey USA. The survey was conducted Tuesday through Thursday and included 597 likely Colorado voters. The results show if the election were held today, 52 percent of those surveyed would vote for Bush and 45 percent would vote for Kerry. Two percent chose other candidates and 1 percent remain undecided. The poll's margin of error is 4.1 percent. The new poll shows signs of strengths for both candidates. The president continues to lead Kerry in suburban areas throughout...

    With the presidential election only 13 days away, Eyewitness News 4 and SurveyUSA asked some of you whom you'll vote for on November 2. You told our pollsters at SurveyUSA that, if the election for President were today, George Bush would defeat John Kerry by an 11% margin here in Arizona. Our exclusive, scientific poll shows Bush's lead dropped 3 percentage points in the past 2 weeks. Still, Pollster Joe Shipman says Bush has maintained a double-digit lead in Arizona since July. As you might expect, Republicans like the numbers. Democrats don't. Sue Walitsky, Arizona Communication Director for the Kerry-Edwards...

    WASHINGTON - President Bush leads in all of the battleground states he carried in 2000, but he faces a tightening contest to repeat his wins in Ohio and New Hampshire, according to a new Knight Ridder-MSNBC poll released Wednesday. Less than two weeks before Election Day, the survey offered a detailed look at the shifting state-by-state battleground where the presidency will be decided. If Bush holds all the battleground states he won in 2000 - labeled red states for their color-coding on election maps - he will win re-election. If he loses red states with 10 electoral votes or more,...

    As many of you know, I have been a sports photographer for the Texas Iconoclast for the last three years. This week, the Iconoclast endorsed John Kerry over President Bush. Of course, Bush's home town newspaper endorsing his challenger made national news. While it came as no surprise to local residents, it was a chance for the national media to tout that even in Crawford, Texas, the citizens were turning against George Bush. The reality of the situation is a little bit different. As someone who has worked for the paper for a while, I know a little bit more...

On the left, a chalkboard mounted outside a coffee shop lists the day's special as a showing of "Unprecedented: The 2000 Presidential Election" - a documentary implying that George W. Bush, then governor of Texas, colluded with Florida politicians to disenfranchise black voters and steal the election. On the right, a sign in the window of a motorcycle shop reads: "Kerry Sucks."

"We couldn't have done it without the help of 35 local businesses who displayed the petitions at their counters," Billington said. "A lot of people were involved in this effort." The petition drive was started in June and completed over the weekend while he was in the Republican booth at the Butler County Fair. Anyone still having a petition should call...

    DUBUQUE, Iowa, May 7 — Tears were flowing on "Live With Regis & Kelly" on Friday as a woman was introduced to the man whose life her dead son's heart had saved. But the emotional moment was abruptly halted on Channel 9 here by breaking news. It was not for Donald H. Rumsfeld's Congressional appearance (that would come later) or the severe storms brewing to the southwest. It was, rather, for Air Force One's approach, which the news camera followed as if it was that of the space shuttle. "You can see a smooth landing at the Dubuque Regional Airport,"...

    <p>At the Sept. 20, 2001 joint session of Congress, President Bush proclaimed, "I will not yield, I will not rest, I will not relent in waging this struggle for freedom and security for the American people." And in his latest book, "Bush Country" John Podhoretz reminds us that in George W. Bush, America has a leader committed to America and its values. He is a leader which history will single out for greatness.</p>

    Sunday morning at 9AMEST C-Span2 will repeat the program of a discussion of his book Bush Country by John Podheretz, taped in late February at Barnes and Noble in NYC. Podheretz accuses both the left and right of being engaged in a "great forgetting" of the magnitude and implications of 9/11 and says that the way Bush has handled that outrage has made him a president of substance and importance. More enjoyable than his talk, however, is the way Podheretz handles several hecklers - for instance: "the subtitle of my book is 'How Dubya Became a Great President and Drove...

    It appears that Joan Walsh of Salon.com thought she was a pretty smart cookie, parading her Scholastic Aptitude Test score of 1200 as proof. Like many of her media colleagues she considered President Bush’s intellectual level far below her own. It came as something of a shock for her to learn that the 17-year-old Bush’s SAT score was the same as hers – 1200 – and scored at a time when that was a very hard level to reach. In his new book, "Bush Country: How Dubya Became a Great President While Driving Liberals Insane," widely acclaimed New York Post...

    By Michael Potemra <![if !vml]><![endif]>Bush Country: How Dubya Became a Great President While Driving Liberals Insane, by John Podhoretz (St. Martin's, 288 pp., $24.95) Assessing the historical significance of a presidency barely into its fourth year is a tricky business. At this point in his administration, Wilson was promising to keep us out of European war; Nixon, dazzling the world with his China expedition, was on the path to landslide reelection; Reagan, facing a still-monolithic USSR, was moderating his anti-Soviet rhetoric and calling for "a constructive and realistic working relationship" between the superpowers. Which makes John Podhoretz's achievement in...
