Blame the media! They campaigned hard against Kerry in August.
The Time poll showing Bush ahead 11 points is the only poll showing these numbers. Do you really think it is accurate? The Zogby poll shows Bush with a 2 point lead and Zogby was always on the money during the primaries.

Anyway, If this new Time poll is really accurate I don't think we should be so hard on the Kerry campaign because they should be 20 points behind just from the beating they took from the media during the entire month of August!

The cable news channels clearly want to see Bush win this election since there is no way a candidate can do well when the media reports the swift boat vets allegations as facts (the cable news channels tried so hard to keep the story alive by repeating the ads over and over), when most of the headlines about Kerry have negative connotations, when most headlines about Bush had some positive feeling to them, when during a brutally negative convention the media NEVER BOTHERED TO QUESTION the attacks or CHECK THE FACTS!!!

It is just unbelievable! We are all condemning the Kerry campaign but what can you do when the media is looking to trip Kerry at every chance they get?

This is sick!

ABCNNBCBSRNCFAUX ALL played the Smear Boat Liars all day and all night. These same networks won't run a 60-second ad from Moveon.org. Something's rotten on the Potomac and it smells like NAZIs.
