VOTAR AHORA!!

Well here we go. Jon Heinz-Kerry is already beginning his play to do a better job of stealing the election than AlGore did in 2000. He is getting ready to start naming his cabinet before the election is even begun.

I don't know if I can take the thought of four years of watching that sneering Tad Devine as President Kerry's communications director. I hope W's people are ready for Kerry's play. I like the polls I'm seeing, lets hope and pray that W Takes it handsomely and convincingly.

More Perspective

Some perspective....first is from our very own Voice, who sent this to me in an email earlier this year. And then another piece from THE RIGHT SCALE, good blogsite check it out . Both calmly recite W's outstanding achievements in the face of tremendous adversity from both abroad and at home. Contrast these with the shrill hysterics the loony-left has subjected all of us to, for well over a year now -SpinDaddy


"... I am not sure whether or not this actually appeared in a paper, but the facts are pretty accurate and true. These are GREAT points.

------------------------------------------------------------------

The following appeared in the Durham, NC local paper as a letter to the editor. Please forward to all on your list as this will put things in perspective:Liberals claim President Bush shouldn't have started this war. They complain about his prosecution of it. One liberal recently claimed Bush was the worst president in U.S. history. Let's clear up one point: We didn't start the war on terror. Try to remember, it was started by terrorists - BEFORE 9/11.

Let's look at the "worst" president and mismanagement claims. [Liberal Icon] FDR led us into World War II. Germany never attacked us: Japan did.

From 1941-1945, 450,000 lives were lost, an average of 112,500 per year. Truman finished that war and started one in Korea, North Korea never attacked us.

From 1950-1953, 55,000 lives were lost, an average of 18,333 per year.John F. Kennedy started the Vietnam conflict in 1962. Vietnam never attacked us. Johnson turned Vietnam into a quagmire. From 1965-1975, 58,000 lives were lost, an average of 5,800 per year.

Clinton went to war in Bosnia without UN or French consent, Bosnia never attacked us.

He [Clinton] was offered Osama bin Laden's head on a platter three times by Sudan and did nothing.
Osama has attacked us on multiple occasions.In the two years since terrorists attacked us, President Bush has liberated two countries, crushed the Taliban, crippled al-Qaida, put nuclear inspectors in Lybia, Iran and North Korea without firing a shot, and captured a terrorist who slaughtered 300,000 of his own people. We lost 600 soldiers. Bush did all this abroad while not allowing another terrorist attack at home. Worst president in history? Come on!

The Democrats are complaining about how long the war is taking, but...It took less time to take Iraq than it took Janet Reno to take the Branch Davidian compound. That was a 51 day operation.

We've been looking for evidence of chemical weapons in Iraq for less time than it took Hillary Clinton to find the Rose Law Firm billing records. [Let me refresh your memory, these records were under subpoena for at least two years, then mysteriously materialized on a dresser in the most secure residence in the entire world, the White House -Spin]

It took less time for the 3rd Infantry Division and the Marines to destroy the Medina Republican Guard than it took Teddy Kennedy to call the police after his Oldsmobile sank at Chappaquiddick.

It took less time to take Iraq than it took to count the votes in Florida!!!!

Our President is GREAT and so is our military! PASS IT ON...."


Insanity by the Numbers

Dick McDonald

My friends and some of the other variety are absolutely victims of immateriality. Deaths in Iraq, deficits, stolen munitions, draft, economic malaise, and others. Moms are worried, the economy is a disaster and as the Manhattan elite put it, "If Bush wins, the world as we know it will end".

Well I have never seen such insignificant and immaterial numbers be blown into such world shattering proportions.

Stolen Munitions. Wow, 380 tons of munitions at 1 munition dump 20 miles south of Baghdad are missing. Forget the fact that these munitions went missing before our troops captured that dump. What's 380 out of the 400,000 tons already recovered at 1 dump out of 10,000 dumps already identified. Paul Bremer says that Saddam purchased almost 1,000,000 tons of munitions, mostly from France, China and Germany. Now, John Kerry calls for Bush's scalp for the 380 tons. Numerically brain-dead.

Deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan. Wow, we have conducted and won two wars and lost less than 300 soldiers in the hot portion of those wars. Apparently the hand-wringers are in a catatonic fit about it. Forget that we lost 58,000 in Vietnam, 50,000 in Korea and 300,000 in WWII.
It goes to show that if the NYT has the immaterial and insignificant to blow into a worldwide controversy, they will lie, deceive and omit the issue to their anti-American end.

Deficits. Conservatives are wild about Bush's failure to veto any spending bill in his first term. Discarding the issue that the legislature only asked him to sign what Bush had previously approved, the importance of this particular deficit is totally immaterial and insignificant. Americans GDP is running at $11.7 Trillion this year. A $415 Billion deficit is just about 4% thereof. Now with a war, stock-market bubble bursting, recession-fighting, accounting scandals, tax cuts, etc., please give me a break. Has it driven up interest rates? No. This deficit is immaterial and insignificant. And have you forgotten that the net worth of households and non-profit orgs is running at an annual increase of $3.2 Trillion.

Draft. Why a draft? There is no reason. Just a scare tactic by the Democrat scoundrels.[The only proposals for a draft in Congress, came from Dems -Spin] Why have 400,000 boots on the ground. We won the Afghan war with less than 10,000. And in many cases major encounters were won with air power and small special ops troops. We are now in the era of digital wars. Our capabilities are so sophisticated that no one left Baghdad even though we were bombing day and night. Adults should look at the numbers and get real.

The Economy. John Kerry says the economy is a mess. Gee, A third of every dollar spent in the world ends up in an American's bank account. What a mess? What a greedy ingrate this Lurch is. He has no executive experience. No concept of the job he is a pretender for. Elevating him to Commander in Chief is tantamount to putting a bus driver in charge of Harvard. His managerial skill is questionable, suspect and untested. Unemployment at 5.4%. Wow. Best percentage in 20 years. Kerry's Hoover comparison is mindless.Too bad the LDO Demomedia spins these issues in Kerry's favor. Our democracy doesn't exist as long as this disparity continues.posted by DICK MCDONALD

Kerrys newest Campaign Strategy

Really nice; man in FL (BTW a registered dem ) tries to run down Katherine Harris and some Bush supporters. Apparently for having the audacity to support a polpular President. Then again, I often have to deal with Caddillacs with FL license plates up here in the mountains, and this kind of behavior sounds typical. -SpinDaddy

This Morning Spin is Reading. . .

Good reads this morning, first from Pete DuPont in the WSJ . Hugh Hewitt has some very good posts up.

And lastlyThomas Sowell has a three part voter guide people should absolutely read before voting. And the he has a really, really good piece on the bigotry of the "greens" below is an excerpt

". . . Selfishness is never a pretty thing but it is at its ugliest when it masquerades as some kind of lofty nobility. That pose not only gets the green bigots good press, it also helps recruit the young and uninformed to their movement -- especially the young who have been misinformed on college and university campuses.

There is another selfish aspect of the green bigots that the media never seem to discuss: Restrictions on the building of new housing raises the value of existing housing -- and the leaders of the environmental movement usually already have theirs.

As David Whelan of Forbes magazine put it: "They preserve their 25 percent annual appreciation [on their homes property value] by extending everyone else's commute."

Of course there are many examples of the quasi-socialist nonsense Sowell speaks of that I could link to here, but probably the nastiest of these hyper-wealthy-green-elitists is none other than the wife of the junior Senator from MA Teresa Heinz-Kerry . I dare you to read this site after you have read Thomas Sowells piece above; you do the math.

If Heinz-Kerry gets elected (or they just steal it) and we have a hyper-wealthy-green-elitist in control of the executive branch apparatus of our Federal gov't, we are going to rue the day we didn't go down to the local GOP headquarters and sign up to volunteer help stop this.

Good Read

From the always insightful John Podhertz. Good analysis of the MSM myth of the undecided voter, and how they are or are not going to break in this election. -SpinDaddy

Declare Victory and Leave the Field

Much like Scary John Kerrys likely policy in Iraq, he and the ghouls at his campaign are up to no good, regarding the upcoming election. I sincerely hope I am wrong about this, and if W pulls out just a few percentage points this scenario becomes all the more unlikely, but...
I think Heinz-Kerry and MSM are just going to declare victory Tuesday night 02NOV04 (regardless of the actual results). Thus putting Bush in the untenable position of having to prove a negative (ie Kerry did not win) and I really, really think W's people should be out spinning 2 points right now.

1. Call Heinz-Kerry on all these lawyers he is hiring. Tag him with the GORE-LOSER label...the perception now is largely linked to AlGore because after conceding the 2000 race he calls back and recants, thus making him the sore loser.

Heinz-Kerry understands this and also understands one of the fundamentals of debate and, I think, wants to apply it here. That is that; the one arguing to change the status quo has the burden of proof. If he and the MSM just proclaim victory, Bush has to argue against the "status quo" in this case that Kerry won because "everybody says so". I know this may sound far-fetched, but I put NOTHING past these people.

2. The W team also needs to be in every public forum available insisting on the constitutional process for resolving disputed elections, which is to say the US House of Representatives. Denny Hastert, and Tom Delay need to have their plan in place to quickly dispatch this nonsense. Letting this drag on the way it did in 2000 will seriously endanger our troops and the security of the homeland.

Again; this is from an ealier post, but it is very telling...

Look at this from the most recent article by Jonah Goldberg .

On October 21, The Associated Press reported: "Sen. John Kerry, bracing for a potential fight over election results, will not hesitate to declare victory Nov. 2 and defend it, advisers say. He also will be prepared to name a national security team before knowing whether he's secured the presidency."

The prior Sunday, Eric Holder, a member of the Democrats' "Election Task Force," told Chris Wallace of "Fox News Sunday," "If every vote is allowed to be cast, and if every vote is counted, John Kerry will be president within a day of that election.

"Wallace chuckled at what he thought was so much partisan bravado. "Well, I don't know how you can guarantee that," he said."You heard it right here," Holder responded coldly. "If every vote is allowed to be cast and every vote is counted, John Kerry will be president."

I recently saw another Heinz-Kerry operative flatly declare that they were going to take PA, one way or another.

JOhnKErry Another GORE-LOSER

A must read at the NRO by Gary Gregg on the likely upcoming electoral shenanigans we are about to endure unless W breaks out into a sprint and takes it by several percentage points. As I have pointed out in other posts at this blog, when it was the "GORE-LOSER" stunt in 2000. The electoral uncertainty created by that debacle likely aggravated an economic downturn that demonstrably started on Bill Clintons watch.

2004 is significantly different, in that we are in a state of war. This time it is our security that petulant democrats are willing to put at risk with their cry-baby tactics. How do you suppose our terrorist enemies will view another debacle such as we had in 2000? One would think they would view it as an opportunity to press their case to force a retreat on our part by ratcheting up their attacks.

Heinz-Kerry and his reported 10,000 lawyer accomplices are about to seriously jepordize the safety of our troops and possibly the homeland to satisfy their vulgar thirst for power.

Remember you heard it here first. Also remember what I have noted in an earlier post about the Over the Rhine area in Cinncinnati OH -SpinDaddy

Perspective

There is a good read on the history of nastiness in political contests in this country at the Christian Science Monitor . Some excerpts below.

"...as James Madison noted in Federalist No. 10, that "So strong is this propensity of mankind to fall into mutual animosities, that where no substantial occasion presents itself, the most frivolous and fanciful distinctions have been sufficient to kindle their unfriendly passions and excite their most violent conflicts."
The idea is that democracy would liberate individual self-interest and narrow political ambition to an unprecedented degree, thereby skewing our politics toward a fairly low common denominator.

Our nation's politics has seldom failed to live down to these humble expectations.

...Andrew Jackson was described by his opponents as a drunkard, bigamist, adulterer, gambler, and murderer. Abraham Lincoln likewise was viewed as an "awful woeful ass," a "dictator," a "coarse vulgar joker," and a "grotesque baboon..."

Sound familiar?? Some historians even believe that Andrew Jacksons beloved wife Rachel may have actually died shortly before his inauguration as a result of the stress of the election wherein Jacksons opponents basically called her a bigamist whore who had remarried to Jackson without a proper and legal divorce.

Kind of makes Michael Moore, Terry McAuliffe, or Teresa Heinz-Kerry look like amatuers huh? -SpinDaddy

Important Read

Below is from a very good piece by the ever brilliant Thomas Sowell who is a fellow at the Hoover institute. His piece is about the usual biased crap spewing forth from the MSM, but the paragraphs below describing how the anti-war movement in America helped Ho Chi Minhs cause is extremely profound, and timely.

Michael Moore, Ted Koppel, JOhnKErry, Dan Rather, are all blame-America-first-weak-on-defense-fools. When they talk down our accomplishments, they are encouraging our terrorist enemies as JOhnKErry, and "Hanoi-Jane Fonda" did during Vietnam. -SpinDaddy

...."In recent years, high officials of the Vietnamese government have openly admitted that they were losing the Vietnam war on the battlefields but hung on, waiting for a political victory, based on their belief that the anti-war movement in the United States would eventually force American withdrawal.

When much of the American media became part of the anti-war movement, the gamble obviously paid off. One of the Vietnamese Communists' museums pays tribute to the American anti-war movement in general and features a picture of John Kerry in particular...."

FLA Voting

A good friend sent me this. It is a tutorial on the new electronic voting machines now in use in Florida and; according to various news reports concerning early voting, Floridians are too stupid to use also, and now want paper ballots so they can mess those up. Let's just expel Florida from the union already, and be done with it. We can cede it to Castro and all the leftys down there can have all the free health care they whine about constantly. -SpinDaddy

Undecided Voter Guide

SpinDaddy got this from a friend in his email....it appears to be some sort of guide to help undecided voters decide already.....

I'm trying to get all this political stuff straightened out in my head, so I'll know how to vote come November. Right now, we have one guy saying one thing. Then the other guy says something else. Whom to believe. Hmmm.

Lemme see; have I got this straight?

Clinton awards Halliburton no-bid contract in Yugoslavia - good...
Bush awards Halliburton no-bid contract in Iraq - bad...

Aaarrggghh, it's all so confusing!!

Every year an independent tax watchdog group analyzes the average tax burden on Americans, and then calculates the "Tax Freedom Day". This is the day after which the money you earn goes to you, not the government. This year, tax freedom day was April 11th. That's the earliest it has been since 1991.It's latest day ever was May 2nd, which occurred in 2000. Notice anything special about those dates?.....Before and after the Bush tax cut.

Recently, John Heinz-Kerry gave a speech in which he claimed Americans are actually paying more taxes under Bush, despite the tax cuts. He gave no explanation and provided no data for this claim.

Another interesting fact: Both George Bush and John Heinz-Kerry are wealthy men. Bush owns only one home, his ranch in Texas. Heinz-Kerry owns 4 mansions, all worth several million dollars. His ski resort home in Idaho is an old barn brought over from Europe in pieces, then re-assembled into a ski chalet. Not your typical A-frame. Bush paid $250,000 in taxes this year; Heinz-Kerry, billionaire paid $90,000. Does that sound right? The man who wants to raise your taxes obviously has figured out a way to avoid paying his own.

Answer the Question Senator

Johnny "Hairboy" Edwards will NOT answer the Global Test questions. Gwen Ifill keeps letting it slide. -SpinDaddy

It took the "Hairboy" 27 mins to mention the "H" word, Cheney ignores....good...Now Gwen is asking the question I have posed here several times, why should we believe France and Germany will step up in Iraq, Hairboy is of-course not answering it....he has talked about several other topics but not France and Germany, somebody needs to call him on it and insist on an answer to the moderators question. -SpinDaddy

Cheney is beginning to show a little healthy indignation in calling Edwards on not including Iraqi casualties, when discussing deaths in Iraq. -SpinDaddy

Edwards was flat in his delivery of their, no doubt, spin-tested "Americans can't take 4 more years of your experience" line. -SpinDaddy

Edwards is coming across as surly and defensive. -SpinDaddy

Now he is not answering the question about AIDS by changing the subject to health care, ooohh here comes the "aren't you a lightweight?" question to the "Hairboy".....he's not answering that one either, good clarification by Cheney about the question. -SpinDaddy

If this were a formal forensic debate the "Hairboy" would have been bounced a long time ago for topicality -SpinDaddy

I knew it!! Gwen is in the tank for Kerry/Edwards, Drudge did you see that?!! She gave the "Hairboy" 15secs extra time!! LOL -SpinDaddy

Same health care as Congress?? Really? Can I have their retirement plan as well?? This is smoke and mirrors.....Cheney is callng them on their record again good, good.....alright, Cheney won the coin toss, and has last word....Edwards summation was very lawyer-esque -SpinDaddy

Hugh Hewitt has a neat running transcript of debate up. -SpinDaddy

Summary: Cheney handled the "Hairboy" tonight, clearly won the first half of the debate on foreign policy....better retorts....good on the cutaways....puts Kerry/Edwards back on the defensive over Kerrys weak record on defense, did a fantastic job of slamming Edwards record of nothingness in the Senate, Senator "gone"..."haven't met you until tonight." etc.
