Frustrated about *news*- about HALF this country DOES NOT
*want to have a beer with Bush
*does not think Bush is a likeable, charming guy nor do they want to be his friend.
*thinks Bush is a lazy fratboy who lies his way through life
*likes Kerry and would love to sit around and talk with him, EVEN EAT BARBECUE
*wants to live in a world where people are encouraged to be strong and have nothing to fear but fear itself instead of being terrorized
*don't want secrecy in government
*want accountability and responsibily in government
*want the world not to be trashed by greedy corporations who care little about environmental policy
*doesn't want to have our troops go to war in an unjust cause or kill "insurgents* that otherwise would be known as their own country's patriots
*want to be labeled as a potential terrorist simply because they do NOT agree with the president or some congressional policies

Is it TOO MUCH TO ASK that the HALF of the people that are making this race SO CLOSE get at least enough respect not to hear the type of garbage spouted on Hardball? It is NOT that Chris Matthews asks tough questions-FINE. It is that he interjects extremely subjective personal opinions that TRASH the way I feel in my FIfTY PER CENT of the country feeling.

Gag. I think I may start automatically recording Countdown just so I don't have that channel on at all anymore but can still watch it at my leisure.

3. Here's an e-mail I send him about Bush pimping
I wrote him tonite on his pumping up a Bush victory.


Can we at least have an election before you call the vote?

To Chris Matthews,

I realize you love to give your opinions -- and your
opinions seem to change every day.

However you have been going too far when you
practically call the election for Bush two months
before the polls are even open. Your statement today
that the election is "over" if people decide Kerry is
too "weak" to fight terror is completely bogus.

This perception of Kerry as weak is largely a media
creation. It's typical of the way you smirking,
self-satisfied pundits create a perception and then
feed off it by talking to yourselves.

You people constantly ignore things candidates say,
and then you complain the candidates are not saying
anything. Although Kerry has not run the greatest
campaign so far, he HAS been talking about real
issues, and stating repeatedly a fairly consistent
position on Iraq and a specific plan to actively fight
terrorism. Read his damn web site.

Maybe if you damn pundits would stop obsessing about
the horse race, and start talking about substance,
this mighgt be an actual election.

And stop telling us how "likable" Bush compared to
Kerry. Bush makes the skin crawl of at least half the
populAtion. Most people I know (of many political
persuasions) can not stand Bush as a person. People
think he is creepy and phony.
