Advertisements [?]
not have been. Bush is one the worst presidents of modern times. The vote spread should have been at least 5-10 million against him.

I've been hard on John Kerry, but I must admit. I'm mad because I studied him and have lots of respect for the man. Plus he's a very likable guy.

I remember Kerry's first visit to the south when he said it's George W. Bush that needs to be afraid of coming down here because of his record. But that was it....lights out.

Not one visit to NW Florida. I don't even remember him coming to Tallahassee (the capital of the state for God's sake). Someone correct me if I'm wrong, (crickets chirping).

If John Kerry would have walked around some southern state fairs, shook hands, let southerners see and touch him. What would have been the outcome? It didn't happen.

Bob Graham would have paraded that man around every little town along the Gulf Coast and you know what, Jeb and the boys would have shit their pants, because people really wanted to see John Kerry down here.

Why did Bush spend so much time in Ohio? Because Kerry was there, that's why.

If Kerry would have visited New Orleans, Jackson, Miss., Montgomery, Ala., etc. etc. Then guess what Bush would not have had so much time to run his W Bus around blue states.

We missed an opportunity here. We're going to pay for it the next four years too.
