  • Hispanics for Jorge (George W. Bush)

    Wall Street Journal ^ | November 8, 2004 | MICHAEL GONZALEZ
    ...But for the Republicans this is unadulterated good news. It vindicates "Jorge" Bush's hunch that aggressively pursuing the Hispanic vote would pay off. His familiarity with Mexican-Americans in Texas formed in him an instinct.... The Hispanic entry into Republican ranks comes, for many, at an earlier phase in their American journey than for other immigrant groups. Just think of the Irish, Italians and Jews, who generations after arrival on these shores can still reflexively pull the Democratic lever. Their vestigial loyalty is the result of what has been the Democratic Party's strategy for over a century. The bargain back in...

    Managing Teresa. Kerry's wife, Teresa Heinz Kerry, presented a host of behind-the-scenes drama for Kerry. Early on, the campaign staff regarded Teresa as something of a hypochondriac, and she canceled three trips in October at the last minute, usually for what was described to aides as a "nonspecific malady." Kerry's first campaign manager, James Jordan, had little patience for her strong opinions, sending emails trashing the candidate's wife...which inevitably reached his rivals within the campaign, including Bob Shrum (an old Teresa friend) and helped seal Jordan's eventual dismissal.

    ...And while President Bush sought constantly to sharpen his differences with Mr. Kerry, the Senator largely succeeded in blurring them, turning an argument about ideology into one about competence. Given the current parameters of Democratic orthodoxy and Mr. Kerry's sincerely held reservations about the use of force, it was the only thing he could do. As it is, Mr. Kerry was not exactly the night's lonely Democratic loser. This is the third consecutive election in which the Democrats have lost to George Bush's Republicans (with each loss bigger than the last) and that is no accident. In part it has...

    In singular moments in our history, the security of the United States hinged on a single presidential election.... Today's vote determines how the United States finishes the present war against terrorists, and, indeed, whether we continue to defeat Islamic fascism.... John Kerry sees our struggle as an unending law enforcement problem, akin to gambling and prostitution. Thus the terrorist attacks of the 1990s were not deadly precursors to 9/11, but belong to a now nostalgic era of "nuisance." In contrast, George W. Bush envisioned September 11 as real war.... Most of Sen. Kerry's allegations about this war ring false or...

    Teresa Heinz Kerry, the wife of Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry, has had a remarkable life even if it does not end up in the White House. Her name alone -- Teresa Thierstein Simoes-Ferreira Heinz Kerry -- suggests the unusual path followed by the woman born to Portuguese parents in the then-Portuguese colony of Mozambique in 1938. After studying in South Africa and Switzerland, the young Teresa Simoes-Ferreira moved to the United States to put her fluency in five languages to work at the United Nations. She married John Heinz, scion of the Pittsburgh-based Heinz food condiment company, in 1966....

    FROM THE NATIONALLY KNOWN COLUMNIST.... By Ann Coulter: Kerry was indisputably brave in Vietnam, and it's kind of cute to see Democrats pretend to admire military service. Physical courage, like chastity, is something liberals usually deride, but are tickled when it accidentally manifests itself in one of their own. One has to stand in awe of Kerry's military service 33 years ago. Of course, that's where it ends, including with Kerry -- inasmuch as, upon his return from war in 1970, he promptly began trashing his fellow Vietnam vets by calling them genocidal murderers. But if Bush can't talk to...

The program's "investment" practices would never pass muster in the private sector — Kerry is pillorying Bush for daring to tentatively address a perpetual financial scandal.... But it takes courage for any politician to assert this fact — because the Dems' strategy to attract elderly voters is to perpetuate financial fears.... Bush's reforms would address a second flaw that makes Social Security resemble an institutional swindle rather than an investment trust....

Then the announcer said that she met her husband, Sen. Kerry, at an Earth Day rally. The rally they showed Sen. Kerry speaking at had a HUGE banner that said "Earth Day 1990."

    "Who can forget her humbling during the 1992 campaign, after she messed up with her catty "I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies" remark, looking again like that snooty feminist who 12 years earlier cost her husband the governor's race? She left the political stage briefly and came back looking more wifely, sitting for an interview with NBC's Jane Pauley in a big-skirted coral dress that she could have borrowed from Donna Reed. She looked like she'd been drinking or crying -- the '50s housewife's two safe harbors -- and she seemed less demure than drugged. Her...

But she seems to be calm, and she has a sparkle in her eye, which is good. But I don't know that she's ever had a real job — I mean, since she's been grown up. So her experience...

    Full Disclosure: John Edwards often speaks of "two Americas" — one that "pays the taxes" and another that "gets the tax breaks." Meet Teresa Heinz Kerry and her tax accountants. John Kerry wants to raise taxes on everyone making over $200,000, rolling back Bush's "tax cuts for the rich." So why did his wife pay only 12.5% of her income in taxes last year? According to documents released by the Kerry campaign, Teresa Heinz Kerry in 2003 paid taxes at a rate barely above the rate paid by the lowest-income Americans who actually pay taxes. She reported a total income...

    RYE - Stressing the need for bipartisan action on the environment, Teresa Heinz Kerry gave a verbal spanking to the Bush administration for backing out of an international environmental agreement and called for a reversal of Bush-Cheney environmental policies. "The planet can't take it and we try to make sense of it," said Heinz Kerry, a longtime environmental advocate and wife of Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry."There was a time when Republicans and Democrats were across the aisle on many issues," said Heinz Kerry, whose first husband was the late Republican U.S. Sen. John Heinz of Pennsylvania. "We have to...

    The Kerry campaign finally released THK’s 2003 tax return, or rather two pages of it, late last Friday. …even this minimal disclosure deserves more attention in light of JK’s pledge to raise tax rates. In 2003, THK earned $5 million, hardly a surprising income for someone estimated to be worth nearly $1 billion. … THK paid $627,150 in taxes, for an overall average federal tax rate of only 12.4% on her $5 million in total income. … As the chart shows, this puts THK’s tax rate well below that of other filers in her super-rich neighborhood. But it also means...

The news is that $2.78 million of that income came in the form of tax-exempt interest from what the Kerry campaign's press release attributed to investments in "state, municipal and public entity bonds." ...On her remaining...
