The democratic nominee WILL beat Bush
The media has begun to drop their insane "Is Bush undefeatable?" line, and replacing it with, "Can Clark beat Bush, Can Kerry beat Bush?" The answer, of course, is yes!

But so could any of the other candidates, certainly including the frontrunner Dean, who they've tried so hard to saddle with the "McGovern" label.

Bush is the worst President in the history of this country. The screaming media will not be able to continue to drown out the truth. They can harp about Bush being strong on foreign policy and national security, but anyone who knows the score knows that this is the media's greatest lie. Bush is terrible at these things. Bush LIHOP! He can't speak or talk or do anything remotely average!

Look for his approvals to bottom out at 40% by the end of the year. Many reasons, including:

* The economic reality is starting to hit those who couldn't care less about concepts such as imperialism or colonialism. The SUV's will need gas and lease payments, and the kids will still expect holiday gifts--but where's the money going to come for it? We're all broke (or staggeringly rich!) and I don't know if there's a 2nd or 3rd job out there for everyone. The recession will begin to feel like a depression by December.

* The fact that this is a costly war of American occupation, instead of a made-for-tv lovefest of coalition liberation forces. Soldiers will come home and talk, the military families will continue to mobilize against Bush and they are hard for the media to make light of, although, of course, they will.

* And the media itself is slowly increasing pressure, improving coverage, and will return to their typically lousy state of affairs. The 9/11 honeymoon, the unrepentant facist propaganda, may be ending in the media, and without the media peddling their lies, BushCo has NOTHING!

There are countless other reasons, but be certain, despite Florida and Black Box voting, and any other Karl Rove Shadow Government bullshit du jour, Bush will go in 2004.

He will go.

Because if he doesn't, the internet will be regulated, unmanned armed drones for every neighborhood, urban surveillance for all, and then Jeb in 2008. Democracy will die in 2004 if Bush wins, so it CAN'T HAPPEN.

Support your candidate of choice, and keep your eyes on the prize! It's up to you!

2. Hear! Hear!
I agree wholeheartedly. We WILL come together to defeat Chimpy and his evil cabal. Whoever the candidate is, whether I like him/her or not or agree with him/her or not, I will support the nominee and we will unite as one.

7. so very true, opihimoimoi
The lootocrats are already helicoptering en masse to the Hamptons, Bermuda, or the Bohemian Grove!

The puppet masters are letting go of President Stupid. Too bad he never learned how to walk on his own!

9. One of the reasons he looking so badly these days, He musta just
realized HE was a PUPPET and the cronies he thought were HIS Cronies, were actually his Masters. He just found out he got used and now, horror of all horrors, he gonna be the FALL guy. History will not be kind to all of them but Bush carries the stain.

All the Kings men and All the Kings horses will not patch the dude up again.

\Bush is Toast.

11. He certainly is not up to the task of being President
He doesn't want to work hard. He can't work hard. And for the rest of his life, he will be HOUNDED.

He is an insane mass murderer.

16. Agreed 100%
I can tollerate politics that I disagree with but I can't tollerate an idiot running the government.

6. Yes!
Edited on Mon Sep-22-03 08:42 PM by diplomats
I think it's wonderful we have numerous "electable" candidates. That shows you how bad Bush is (as well as how well our candidates are doing). People are desperately hungering for someone else.

8. Chimpy is very vulnerable
However, he still has Faux news, $200 million, and a still mostly compliant media, along with Rove for dirty tricks. Let's not get overconfident, but more resolute. Chimpy must go.

10. I hear you
Overconfidence is not justified. Plenty of fighting left just to ensure a true election!

14. Cheney gone by the end of the year
Questions for President Stupid:

How are you going to hold up in the 2004 debates?

Does your Poppy think you're stupid, too?

Which do you miss more these days, the booze or the coke?

17. The rumors are...
He'll replace him with Powell or Rice so that they can steal the African American/Female vote from the Democrats.

15. Depends almost entirely on the economy on this point
Diplomacy and Iraq are fucked up beyond salvation for chimpy. If the economy should suddenly get good (which would have absolutely nothing to do with the tax cuts) he can take credit for it and he may get re-elected. I actually didn't take any of the nine candidates seriously until a few months ago. Now I think at least two or three of them have a shot.

19. b*sh is unwilling to do the things necessary to create jobs.
If we field a decent candiate, and at this point I think we have several excellent ones, and stick mainly to the economy, 43*, like 41 before him, is done.

Real terror is not being able to put food on your family's table.

22. What is going on?
Did half the country just wake up or something? What will Bush do? He will have a temper fit or something. Men with that power are rally scary. Maybe congress will take its power back.
