Bush and Rove in full campaign mode....
They have a new campain ad out today attacking Kerry about his stance on the Patriot Act. (I didn't know he was against it) Then there was last night's speech at the War College to let everyone know they would like to tear down the Abu Ghraib prison. They would like to destroy all the evidence if they could.

But the latest polls have got them moving into high gear. They plan on pushing their "war is good" theme with a speech every week until June 30th. They have their fingers crossed that all hell doesn't break loose over in Iraq while he is giving one of these speeches. They are probably trying to figure out where to give the next speech? It could be at a military post or some conservative think tank, like Heritage. But they are in panic mode about these latest polls. Do not be deceived.

2. Bush-Cheney shit all over the place
I just went to In Style magazine's website. And above Kate Hudson's photo was a banner with Stepford Laura claiming "Education is My Passion."

Think it was a little wink towards Fundies that they slipped the word "Passion" in?

4. No. I think it's because
They are desparately trying to convince people that they care about anything but big business and anyone but themselves. Passion implies tha they care.

3. Kerry sent up legislation to repeal certain parts of the Patriot Act
Edited on Tue May-25-04 01:45 PM by blm
last fall. I think he joined with Sununu (R) on that, since NH is almost completely against the PA.

Too bad so many here won't give Kerry the credit for trying to correct aspects of the Act. Now Kerry gets hammered by the left and the Bushies because neither will allow the facts to get in the way of their duplicitous tirades.

I didn't here about the ad, but besides that, you are right. Supposedly he is going to give five speaches. I wonder if it's going to be the same type of bullshit every week.

9. We should also note that he is in Ohio today....
They are really worried about Ohio....I think Kerry should spend a couple of days in Ohio just to worry them a little more... :) They know they cannot afford to lose Ohio...

13. Air Force One will need a massive overhaul
Edited on Tue May-25-04 05:01 PM by RummyTheDummy
After President Kerry takes office. Bush will be spending a fuck load of time in the air trying in vain to put out little fires all over the country between now and November.

That little poll out showing Bush's collective lead in southern states down to a one point margin (47-46) will no doubt be the cause of a lot of sleepless nights for Rove. Throw in Ohio and they may now need to order their Ambien by the pallet.
