Bush "protects" his TN base "like a mother lion protecting her cubs"
http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,126122,00.html

Since beating favorite son Al Gore (search) in Tennessee four years ago, Bush hasn't let up. He's made three trips to the state this year, earlier visiting Knoxville and Nashville. Four, if you include a March trip to Fort Campbell, Ky., near Clarksville. And he's sent surrogates. Vice President Dick Cheney to Chattanooga, first lady Laura Bush to Memphis and National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice to Nashville.

Bush isn't running scared in Tennessee; he's protecting his base of support, said George Korda, a Knoxville political analyst. With the Oak Ridge visit, Bush reached supporters on several levels Tennesseans, Southerners and those strong on national defense. The president never mentioned Kerry.

"One of the first and foremost rules of politics is that you protect your base like a mother lion protecting her cubs. It is crucial, essential, all important," said Korda, who advises Republican candidates.

"And in a race that right now looks to be as close nationally as this one, the base, if any of it erodes for either side, (that candidate) is done for. They are just cooked."

2. I dont think so

but the male lions will eat cubs if they are not theirs, I believe.

SOmewhat ironic since lion cubs are raised by the pride as much as the mother herself.

Sort of like "Takes a Villiage" for those of the lion-persuasion ...

3. Off-topic.
His daughters are looking kind of hot.

Kerry and Edwards kids are still hotter. But it is like they say.

"Democrats are sexy. Who ever heard of a fine piece of elephant?"

4. Democrats know how to fuck.
Republicans know how to fuck shit up.

(Someone at a Kerry meetup told me he got that from someone he met while doing campaign work for...I wanna say Edwards.)

7. Yes, and while Bush may not be "running scared"...
...I have the feeling that he is, in fact, running scared. If he only had ONE MORE BROTHER who could fix the state for him like Jebby in FLA, he wouldn't have to go through this "visit" crap.

:evilgrin:

10. I wish he'd protected America like a mother lion guarding her cubs!
Hint to Dubya -- mother lions spring into action. They do NOT sit there like lumps when they hear their babies shrieking for help.
