Bush, Kerry Both Employ Fear to Get the Job Done
http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&cid=2026&nc...

By Matea Gold and Nick Anderson Times Staff Writers

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. With the campaign for president reaching the closing-argument stage, Republicans called Sen. John F. Kerry (news, bio, voting record) the most liberal candidate for president in history, while Kerry said President Bush (news - web sites)'s inept prosecution of the war in Iraq (news - web sites) had left the "great potential" for a military draft.

The attempt by both sides Friday to suggest that the other would put the country on risky ground seemed to fulfill what both sides had predicted: a harsh conclusion to an extremely close race.


Those messages promised to get plenty of airplay in the final 17 days of the campaign, as new finance reports indicated that independent groups could end up spending as much as $250 million by Nov. 2.


Kerry criticized Bush's military planning and raised the specter of a draft in an interview published Friday by the Des Moines Register.

5. Too bad we don't have a Congress that is worth a crap.... then you
wouldn not have to worry about an out of control pResident. They should do their job and do what should have been done years ago... but they won't... which makes them complicit in producing our collective national nightmare. Please someone make it stop.
