  • 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...

    The Ottawa Citizen ^ | October 30/31, 2004 | David Warren
    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. Leagues included in the study were Major League Baseball, the NBA, NHL, NFL and WNBA, in addition to the top-50 ranked competitors in NASCAR, the IRL, PGA, Champions Tour and LPGA. 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...
  • 9/11 Families: Open Letter to the American People

    10/31/2004 12:29:28 PM PST · by jerod · 9 replies · 628+ views
    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, ďNever forget,Ē defiantly written in...
  • Hitchens for Bush (Slate was wrong)

    10/31/2004 9:20:25 AM PST · by Piranha · 78 replies · 2,312+ views ^ | October 30, 2004 | David Horowitz
    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.

    In tomorrow's [Sunday, October 31] edition, the St. Paul Pioneer Press endorses President George W. Bush. Here are some excerpts from that endorsement: "But when they are held up side by side, it is clear to us that Bush has the sharper vision for a prosperous and safe 21st century." "We believe he will lead the country with decisiveness that Kerry cannot muster." "The president has led post 9/11 America with strength and resolve. His steadiness and calming presence on that September day three years ago and in the weeks that followed helped the nation cope with the unthinkable." "Kerry...

    Give Bush second term Our decision on which presidential candidate to support Nov. 2 was not nearly as easy as it was four years ago when we opted for George W. Bush over Al Gore. But we're endorsing Bush again because we believe he would do a better job than Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry on the two issues that matter most - winning the war against terrorism and strengthening the economy.

    The Sunday Telegraph (U.K.) ^ | 10/31/04 | Leader
    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...

    "THEODORE! with all thy faults -- "-- The New York Sun's 1904endorsement of Teddy RooseveltThis column has expressed abundant skepticism about the grandiosity of George W. Bush's foreign policy. And about his passivity about spending (he has vetoed nothing), his enlargement of the welfare state (the prescription drug entitlement), his expansion of inappropriate federal responsibilities (concerning education from kindergarten through 12th-grade, through the No Child Left Behind Act) and his complicity in vandalizing the Constitution (he signed the McCain-Feingold bill, which rations political speech). Still, this column prefers Bush.

    What a long, agonising trip its been. Throughout the process, I've been subjected to approximately 8 zillion exhortations along the lines of "How on earth could you consider voting for that son-of-a-bitch?" People who bemoan the increasing partisanship of our society will be pleased to hear that both parties seem to be thoroughly united in the belief that anyone who is not voting their way is either a drooling moron or a venal hatemonger, out to destory All That Is Good and Fine in This Great Nation of Ours. So before I give you my endorsement, I thought I'd run...
  • Why Indian Americans should support Bush

    10/30/2004 9:45:59 AM PDT · by AM2000 · 2 replies · 400+ views ^ | Rep. Joe Wilson
    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. Our...

Bush on November 2. In an appeal to voters who may still be undecided in the race between Bush and Democratic presidential candidate Sen. John F. Kerry, the family members of 9/11 victims remind Americans of the horror that this country faced not that long ago. "Three years ago, on the day that began as a beautiful September...

    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...

I canít tell you how many e-mails Iíve received from other Democrats either condemning me for not toeing the line, while others write who are genuinely curious, after all the hate-mongering and demonizing of Republicans and the president specifically, they hope I can ease their fears about what their inclination to vote for the president means about them.
