Bush said, "I don't think you can win it”.

Bush said, "I don't think you can win it”. What was he talking about? He was talking about the war on terror. Should America have a commander and chief leading a war that he thinks we can not win?

What you won’t hear in New York over the next four nights

Today, the first day of RNC convention, the coronation George Bush has begun. As the Republicans attempt to paint themselves as mainstream, while their platform and candidates are ultra right. They have started the process of duping the American electorate once again. I can tell you what you won’t hear in New York over the next four nights:
• You won’t hear that this is the first president since the “Great Depression” to loose jobs during his term in office
• You won’t hear about this president’s catastrophic success in Iraq
• You won’t hear that this president does not think America can win the war on terror
• You won’t hear about the millions of Americans who will now not be entitled to overtime pay
• You will not hear about millions of new Americans who do not have health insurance
• You will not hear about the millions of new Americans (most of them children) who are now living in poverty
• You will not hear about hundreds and hundreds of brave sons and daughters who lost their life over this administration’s lies
• You won’t hear how our closest allies now despise us
• You won’t hear about the lobbyist who wrote our nations energy policy
• You won’t hear about how most of the tax cut went to only 2% of the population
• You won’t hear about the massive national debt we are leaving for our children to pay
• You won’t hear about the millions the drug companies are making at the expense of our seniors
• You won’t hear about the cuts in veterans benefits under this administration
And the list goes on. Click on the comment link to add what you think you won’t hear at the RNC convention.

Depending which media outlet you listen to anywhere form thousands (AP) to Hundreds of thousands (Reuters) protesters lined the streets of New York to protest the policies of the Bush Administration. Hopefully the protestors will distract the news coverage of the Republican Convention.

Outsourcing of jobs is good for America

I had dinner tonight with some friends and I got into a political discussion with one of them. I am for Kerry and he is for Bush. He told me that outsourcing of jobs is good for America. At first I thought he was joking, but he was not. He told me the manufacturing jobs that are leaving our country were the type of jobs no one wants. Ask the autoworker, the call center worker, the TV plant work or the furniture worker who lost their job if it is a good thing. I think they might disagree with my misguided friend. This administrations chief economist has stated that outsourcing of American jobs overseas is a good thing. Let’s outsource George Bush’s job this November – Vote for John Kerry. Watch this video.

Governor of Texas, Ben Barns, admit he got Bush in to the Air Guard (this takes a little while to load, so be patient). Hear what former Lt. Governor Barnes has to say about John Kerry by clicking here.

Groups Say GOP Moves to Stifle Black Vote

The NAACP and other civil rights leaders yesterday charged that recent events suggest the Republican Party is mounting a campaign to keep African Americans and other minority voters away from the polls this November.
In a new report, the NAACP and People for the American Way cite incidents from Florida to Detroit. NAACP Chairman Julian Bond said efforts at intimidation and suppression, once a tool of Democrats in the Jim Crow South, "have increasingly become the province of the Republican Party" as it seeks to counter the overwhelming advantage Democrats enjoy among black voters.

The tactics of smear

In violation of Federal election laws the Bush team is letting the Swifties falsely attack John Kerry’s war record. While members of the Bush campaign team resign as their involvement in this smear campaign is exposed. This tactic of falsely attacking your opponent’s patriotism is a familiar and effective practice of the Bush machine. They did it to John McCain; they did it to Max Cleland, and now they are doing it to John Kerry. President Bush you should be ashamed of yourself. See John Kerry’s latest Ad.

Call Bob Dole's office 202-654-4848 and tell him to apologize to Kerry!

Mike Hersh says, "I just called in, and got right through to a friendly and helpful aide. I kept my tone sad but respectful as I told her how unhappy I was to see Bob Dole repeating incorrect information about Sen. Kerry's wounds. I explained that it was wrong for Dole to politicize medals this way. The woman wrote down my comments and asked for my name, state, and phone number. She said Dole will get the list of calls complaining about his anti-Kerry comments. Add your name to that list now. Call Bob Dole's office 202-654-4848 and tell him to apologize to Kerry!"

Sounds to me like we live in a fascist state

Before attending a rally to hear President Bush or vice president Dick Cheney, citizens are required to sign a political loyalty oath approved by the Republican national committee. "I, [full name] ... do herby [sic] endorse George W Bush for reelection of the United States." The form noted: "In signing the above endorsement you are consenting to use and release of your name by Bush-Cheney as an endorser of President Bush."

Sounds to me like we live in a fascist state. Wouldn’t that be something a dictator, like the one we just removed from power in Iraq would require? What happened to our conditional rights? This is America; no one should have to sign a loyalty oath to hear their president speak.

Kerry press release (Excerpt):

Bush Campaign Busted Passing Out “Swift Boat Veterans for Bush” Flyer
Washington, DC - Despite constant denials, the Bush-Cheney campaign today was busted coordinating with the “Swift Boat Veterans for Bush” in their smear campaign against John Kerry. The following press release was issued this afternoon by the Florida Democratic Party. The evidence is attached.

“Bush Campaign Caught Promoting "Swift Boat Vets for Truth"

While National Campaign Denies Coordination, Campaign in Florida Promotes Rally

Tallahassee -- On the same day that the Bush-Cheney campaign repeatedly denied coordinating attacks with the anti-Kerry group "Swift Boat Veterans for Truth," the Bush-Cheney campaign in Florida was caught promoting a rally in Gainesville for the group.

A flyer being distributed at the Alachua County Republican party headquarters, which doubles as the Bush-Cheney campaign headquarters for the county, promotes a weekend rally sponsored by "Swift Boat Vets for Truth, Veterans for Bush, Alachua Bush/Cheney Committee," and others.

If you tell the lie over and over and over and over then people will start to believe it.

I am sure you have heard the lie which has been repeated and repeated by the media that goes like this “John Edwards and John Kerry are two out of the four most liberal senators in congress”. “They are even more liberal than Ted Kennedy”. (a liberal website) has rated all the senators and congressmen on their voting record. John Kerry was ranked number 24 and John Edwards was ranked 33 out of 48 Democratic Senators. So I guess that makes John Kerry a moderate Democrat and that would make John Edwards a conservative Democrat. If you tell the lie over and over and over and over then people will start to believe it. It is about time we have honesty, not dishonesty, from our leaders. (Source

Do you agree?

I have found when I talk to someone issue by issue they agree with John Kerry on almost every issue. For some reason people are influenced by the misleading, negative, advertising of the Bush campaign. If Americans pay attention to the facts and not the 30 second sound bites; John Kerry will win in a landslide. See for yourself

Aid arriving to Hurricane victims

Ice, water, food, and baby formula have arrived in Florida in record time to help the hurricane victims. I think this is great. Last year we were hit hard by Hurricane Isabel. Millions of people were with out power, homes were inhabitable, water was deemed unfit to drink. During the aftermath of Hurricane Isabel it took FEMA almost two weeks before water and ice was distributed. Why did it take two weeks for FEMA to act in Virginia after Isabel? My friends I don’t think that is the question. The real question is why was FEMA so quick to act in Florida? Could it be that the presidential election is less than two months away and that Florida is crucial to Bush’s chances to be reelected? Don’t get me wrong I am thrilled that the citizens of Florida are receiving aid in a timely manner; I am just sorry that Bush may get some political gain off of someone’s misfortune. But he has been doing that for years, just talk to the families of our dead and wounded soldiers.

Vultures are Hovering over Florida, Hoping Bush Can Cash in on the Tragedy

Can you believe these vultures? The bodies have not yet been counted and the Bush campaign and its media minions at A.merican P.ropaganda are already speculating on how much political mileage Bush can get out of the tragic disaster! Not only is this sick, sick, sick, but it is pure fantasy to think Bush will BENEFIT from this unless he really has come to believe his own propaganda. The National Guard will not be available in sufficient strength to help out in clean up because so many are in Iraq. First responders will work under suboptimal conditions because they have inadequate resources and manpower thanks to Bush. There will be insufficient fed. workers to process disaster claims because they have been "downsized." The funds will not be quick in coming because Bush has nearly bankrupt the federal government. And for those who were unemployed and have now lost their homes as well, Bush will represent anything but a welcome figure.(Source Read the story…

Bush Even Outsourced His Campaign! Promo Merchandise is Made in Burma, China, Honduras, Haiti

While Kerry and Edwards have made SURE that all of their campaign merchandise is made in the USA - not only that, but by UNION LABOR - Bush/Cheney are adding insult to the injury they've already inflicted on American workers by selling souvenir hats, shirts, and other stuff made by the cheapest overseas labor available, including Burma (Myanmar) (allegedly these items have been discontinued after it was exposed that Bush campaign warmup shirts were made there - even though an import ban was supposedly in place) Other items were made in Honduras, China and Haiti - how convenient for Bush that the labor-friendly president of Haiti (who had demanded a minimum wage of US corporations) was overthrown just in time for Campaign 2004!.

Job growth stalls in last two months, underlining failure of tax cuts as job creation strategy

"Job growth has stalled in the last two months. Payroll jobs increased by only 78,000 in June and a meager 32,000 in July, after rising 295,000 a month the previous three months. The Bush Administration called the tax cut package, which was passed in May 2003 and took effect in July 2003, its 'Jobs and Growth Plan.' The Council of Economic Advisers projected that the plan would result in the creation of 5.5 million jobs by the end of 2004-306,000 new jobs each month starting in July 2003. The CEA projected that the economy would generate 228,000 jobs a month without a tax cut and 306,000 jobs a month with the tax cut. Thus, it projected that 3,978,000 jobs would be created over the last 13 months. In reality, since the tax cuts took effect, there are 2,565,000 fewer jobs than the administration projected would be created by enactment of its tax cuts. As can be seen in the chart below, job creation failed to meet the administration's projections in 11 of the past 13 months." (Source Job Watch) more....

'The secretary does not plan to attend,' State Department deputy spokesman Adam Ereli said Tuesday [note that Powell has no comment himself!]. He drew attention to Powell's remarks last week at a convention of minority journalists that he was obliged as secretary not to take part in 'parochial debate.'

Kerry Asks Bush: How Can Americans Aspire to 'Ownership' if they Don't Have a Decent-Paying Job?

We bet there's several million citizens out there who are damn happy to hear someone ask Bush this question! As Dubya stumbles city to city trying to whip up support by promising Americans a future of "ownership" -as in homes, a college degree, etc., he's leaving out one little detail: WHO WILL PAY? Certainly not the family pulling down just enough to pay the bills but not enough to save for a downpayment, or even closing costs on a house. Surely not the parents who cannot pay all of their childs' medical bills, let alone put money toward college. Read Kerry's point by point response to Bush's "Let them eat twinkies" philosophy!

Dick Cheney's Real Record

The Bush campaign has sent Vice President Cheney out to attack John Kerry. But Cheney's attacks have absolutely no credibility. Dick Cheney, who got deferments while John Kerry served his country in Vietnam. Dick Cheney, who still has financial ties to Halliburton. Dick Cheney, who led the fight to close bases and make cuts to the military. Dick Cheney, who still won't tell us the truth about his secret Energy Task Force meetings. (Source DNC) Read More....

Democrats Outraising The GOP This Year

A story By Jim VandeHei and Thomas B. Edsall, of the Washington Post reported that John F. Kerry and the major Democratic Party committees have collectively outraised their Republican counterparts this year, blunting one of the GOP's biggest and longest-standing political advantages, new Federal Election Commission reports show.

I guess this shows that the public is fed up with the Republicans. The GOP tens to raise large sums of money from a few rich contributors and large corporations, where as the Democrats have raised most of their money by small private contributions.

Bush has Freudian slip

WASHINGTON - President Bush offered up a new entry for his catalog of “Bushisms” on Thursday, declaring that his administration will “never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people.”Bush misspoke as he delivered a speech at the signing ceremony for a $417 billion defense spending bill.
“Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we,” Bush said. “They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we.”
