Why is Bush ahead? Burning 50 Million in One Month
We shouldn't be surprised that people are starting to move some and some polls are reflecting this.

The same thing happened in the 2002 Florida Governor's race.

Yes, money can sway undecided and sometimes wishwashy voters.

1. And as Ed Schultz pointed out this week
They also have Right Wing talk radio creating the echo chamber.

But even with 50 mill and massive saturation of right wing propaganda by the media, he's still down in the polls.

There's no way he's ahead.
Any poll that says otherwise was taken by people standing in line for the coolaide.

I'm telling people to contrast a guy that got a 3.7 in college, was offered a $2 mill contract, and volunteered to go to Afgahnastan with George W who couldn't even show up for duty.

2. I'm sure it can
Just as a bought and paid for media shilling for * can make a difference. Luckily, Kerry's fundraising is setting records so that we have a chance to be competitive. If you can afford it, keep giving to Kerry until election day. My husband and I are giving up eating out as often so that we can give a certain amount every month. I know that many of you are doing much more than that. If money is what makes the difference, and it's too bad that it does, let's be the ones that make the difference for our next President. John Kerry!

3. And with American Media Propagandizing 24/7 one does wonder what
"the resistence" is? Good point JCMach1. With all their guns blazing and bombardment of us Dems...what have they achieved?

In the end, only a wash. He isn't the great Conqueror of the ME he thinks he is. Armed with his swords of "his" personal God, which doesn't belong to him.

He's pathetic.

4. Exactly, keep in mind they threw EVERYTHING at Kerry
and the result is a wash.

Imagine if Kerry had spent 50million...
