  • Our choice for president: George W. Bush [full text of St. Paul Pioneer Press's endorsement]

    10/31/2004 3:36:56 AM PST · by rhema · 8 replies · 515+ views
    Like many Americans, we have been disappointed with some of the policies and decisions of President George W. Bush in his first term. He has strayed from the conservative principles that resonated four years ago: Smaller government. Thriftiness. Free trade. His environmental policies and aspects of his social agenda, too, give us pause. But at a time of war, we believe the bar must be set high for a challenger seeking to unseat the president. We expect the challenger to make a forceful, compelling, affirmative case for changing the nation's top leadership. Sen. John Kerry has not made that case...
  • Providence Journal endorses Bush for president

    Providence Journal ^ | Providence Journal
    PROVIDENCE, R.I. The Providence Journal has endorsed George W. Bush for a second term as president. The Journal says Bush fully understands the stakes in the war on terrorism since the September Eleventh attacks. The newspaper writes the president has kept fast to the mission to keep Americans secure and take the war on terrorism to the terrorists. The Journal acknowledges that Senator Kerry's stances on some domestic issues are more in line with the newspaper's. But it says the war on terrorism is the, (quote) "issue of our time," and Bush is best suited to prosecute it. The Journal...

    No matter who wins Stateside on Tuesday (or next May, if the race is close enough for the lawyers to throw into the courts), I shall be disappointed. My regular readers will by now have guessed that I am hoping, nay praying, for a Bush victory. More than that: I am hoping for one that is so shockingly decisive, that it will bring the Democrat Party to its senses, and leave major figures in the mainstream media in the United States and elsewhere asking themselves serious questions about life. But this is really too much to hope. I shall be...

    In an investigative study of the Federal Election Commission's database published last week, the Indianapolis Star found that only 31 current athletes and coaches out of a pool of approximately 4,300 contributed to a political campaign over the past year.

Of the 31 contributors, 23 sent money to George W. Bush, including a $2,000 check from Peyton Manning. No one contributed to Kerry, though another eight - including former...

    Three years ago, on the day that began as a beautiful September morning, 19 men and their sponsors carried out a brutal and devastating attack on our country, leaving 3,000 innocent men, women and children dead, including our loved ones. In those first agonizing hours, and for weeks and months afterward as we searched for word of their fate, we were aware that the shock and horror of that day was not ours alone. With a gratitude we could not yet express, we felt the strong and steady embrace of our fellow Americans. The words, “Never forget,” defiantly written in...

    An email from Christopher Hitchens to my friend Ron Radosh indicates that Hitchens's comments on the election in Slate, which we posted here, were actually intended as an edorsement of Bush not Kerry as the editors indicated. When my daughter first sent me the Hitchens comments I told her they didn't look like an endorsement of Kerry to me, but then she sent me the Slate headline which indicated that they were. Now the record is clear. Hitchens is voting for Bush.

    Since so few readers of The Telegraph have a vote in Tuesday's presidential election, it might seem impertinent or redundant for this newspaper to express a preference in the knife-edge contest between George W Bush and John Kerry. But the economic, military and diplomatic power of the United States is so great - and its links with this country so intimate - that it is important to ask which of the candidates would govern America in a way which better served the British national interest. Last year, Britain's exports to the US were worth more than £29 billion; American firms...

    Senators Tom Daschle and John Kerry, Governor Jim McGreevey, and many others in the Democratic Party have created hysteria on the issue of outsourcing. Most legislation to ban or restrict outsourcing in state legislatures or Congress have been introduced by Democrats. Yet, many Indian Americans know the outsourcing issue is one that has been created by Democrats for political gain at their expense. The economy has added 1.9 million jobs in 13 consecutive months, 49 states have added jobs in 2004, the unemployment rate has dropped in 45 states and nearly 140 million Americans are working, an all-time high.

    In the 2000 election, 7.7 million more women than men voted. Having fought for the right to vote - and in that struggle, many courageous suffragettes were beaten, jailed and tortured - women have become conscientious citizens. Indeed, after 9/11, when many Americans admitted to knowing not much about this new enemy, Islamic terrorism, women clamored for information. Soon, we developed a new sophistication about the world. We learned that no country has permanent allies, but all countries have permanent interests; that the United Nations is corrupt, cruel and shiftless; and that former allies could betray us by valuing profit...

    That's George W. Bush, not Kurt Busch [though Kurt's hoping they'll say the same about him after the final 4 races this season]. A little over a week ago, the guys at NASCAR.com ran a front page article detailing Presidential endorsements from NASCAR drivers, team owners, TV commentators, and members of the sport's sanctioning body. The article detailed the near unanimity of their endorsements going to President Bush. It seems to further prove over time what NASCAR's 'King', Richard Petty, has famously said: "You'd be hard-pressed" to find a Democrat in the garage these days. When pressed for further details...

    In this context, we believe President George W. Bush will best lead a bolder, more proactive, more focused struggle against insurgents in Iraq and Afghanistan and rogue governments and groups that shelter, finance or otherwise support terrorists. In contrast, Sen. John Kerry has said any attack against America will be met with "a swift response," but that pre-emptive strikes must meet "a global test." In other words, Kerry would play defense, much like previous administrations did after the attacks on the World Trade Center in 1993, the USS Cole, and U.S. embassies abroad.

If you think for a moment about those who would really be upset by a second Bush term, it becomes a lot easier to stomach.

Elyashiv's opinions are respected by large ultra-Orthodox communities, especially in Israel and the US. Elyashiv has strong influence over about half of all haredi Jews of European origin.

    George W. Bush will win this year’s presidential election, according to the American Political Science Association.

The APSA used “nine distinguished and nonpartisan political scientists” to predict the outcome of the race, according to a press release. An average of the experts’ results shows that Bush will receive 53.8 percent of the popular vote. Only one of the seven models predicts a narrow victory for Senator John Kerry, while all others show a solid lead for Bush. The biggest Bush lead comes from Brad...

    In his bid for reelection, George W. Bush deserves the support of conservatives. His presidency has not turned out as anyone expected. The country was struck hard early in his term. He rose to the occasion. The terrorists had to be hunted down, and our defenses had to be strengthened: On these points there was a consensus. Bush took a fateful, and necessary, further step: The political culture of the Middle East had to be changed as well, lest it incubate more terrorists. Bush has overseen progress on all three fronts.

    President Though he has made major mistakes that could justify his removal from office, George W.

Terrorism is the top issue this campaign because of its threat to our citizens and our economy. This danger existed before Mr. Bush became president, but most Americans didn't consider it all that serious or imminent. After 9/11, we finally realized that America is at war with an enemy intent on inflicting as much death and destruction as possible. Mr. Bush...

    Like millions of American voters, The Dispatch is less than enthused about the choices in next week’s presidential election. Neither President Bush nor Sen. John Kerry has built a record that leads to a clear-cut decision. Since President Bush took office, this newspaper repeatedly has criticized his administration’s borrow-and-spend fiscal policies, which have resulted in massive deficits that weaken America. The Dispatch also strongly opposed the invasion of Iraq, contending the case had not been made that Saddam Hussein possessed weapons of mass destruction or posed an imminent threat to this nation. On the other hand, neither Kerry’s 20-year Senate...

    Re-Elect President Bush October 24, 2004 As in many past elections, Americans are closely divided over who should be the next president. It's not a clear-cut case of one candidate being far superior to the other. Yet history is not made by those who stand on the sidelines and wring their hands. The people must choose on Nov. 2, and The Courant recommends George W. Bush over John F. Kerry.

    Unless you're blindly guided to a partisan decision on Nov. 2, you face a difficult choice for the next president of the United States. Thinking voters, who genuinely weigh a myriad of issues on the table for the upcoming four years, face an extraordinarily tough set of compromises unthinkable in recent memory. It's no wonder the race is so close. Reaching our conclusion, we have itemized several critical points, and here is our scorecard: l Would we now support the pre-eminent strike against Iraq, now knowing there were no weapons of mass destruction, and now knowing the administration did so...

    SNIP It is said that presidential elections turn on the state of the economy, but few Americans realize just how badly the economy was hurt by the terrorist attacks. Flying airplanes into the World Trade Center was more than a symbolic act, it had ripple effects on both the airline and financial industries at a time when the high-tech stock bubble burst. No reasonable person can blame all of that on President Bush. Four years ago, when Bush was an untested governor running for president, we wrote: “We don’t know what challenges our next president will face, so we have...

    President Bush deserves a new term The terrorist attacks on the United States on Sept. 11, 2001, continue to change life in America in ways that were never considered in the first eight months of the presidency of George W. Bush. Those attacks led to the war on terror in Afghanistan, then Iraq and ultimately throughout the world wherever the terrorists, with their bloody handiwork, exposed themselves. President Bush has led the world’s fight against terrorism. He has stood firm and resolute in the face of terrorists, pledging to root them out wherever they try to hide. In the process,...

    Friday, October 22, 2004 THE VIEW FROM MOSCOW Russian voters prefer Bush By CONSTANTINE PLESHAKOV MOSCOW -- According to a recent international poll, Russia is among a handful of nations that largely support U.S. President George W. Bush and want him re-elected. The Democratic Party nominee, Sen. John Kerry, doesn't do well at all among Russians surveyed -- as opposed to the overwhelming approval he enjoys in France and other countries. This difference in taste is quite telling and supports an old theory that Russians are closer to Americans than they are to Western Europeans: No matter what the eventual...

    In wartime, U.S. needs Bush as leader Oklahoman Editorial IN THE presidential election of 1864, Americans buffeted throughout the summer by accounts of horrific battles and staggering casualties re-elected Abraham Lincoln. They did so despite awful carnage at places like the Wilderness, Spotsylvania and Cold Harbor, each of which cost thousands of Union soldiers killed and wounded. They did so despite charges from Lincoln's opponents that he was incompetent and that his top general was a butcher. Hesitant to change course in the middle of the Civil War, voters stuck with Lincoln and launched a tradition of Americans supporting incumbents...

    A Surprising Endorsement Readers know just how little little I think of newspaper endorsements for a presidential candidate. But there’s one endorsement worth noting: The Sioux Falls Argus-Leader is endorsing President Bush.Those familiar with familiar with South Dakota politicsSouth Dakota politics know just how much of a Democrat front the Argus-Leader is. This surprising endorsement is perhaps a sign that the political winds in South Dakota are blowing so much to the right that the newspaper endorsed President Bush to avoid losing readers. That is, of course, bad news for Tom Daschle in his desperate fight for re-election.UPDATE: Another...
