Good news from Florida…

September 30, 2004

…besides it being hurricane free while I’m visiting!

Bush leads Kerry by nine points! That’s according to the Gallup Poll.

Powerline Blog reports another poll showing Bush with a four point lead.

If the left can’t win it, they’ll spin it!

September 30, 2004 points out:

Terry McAuliffe, convinced that John Kerry will lose the debate tonight, is asking for help to make sure that, regardless of Kerry’s efforts, the media is spun to believe that Kerry won.

He then lists the contents of a DNC mass email. Read the whole thing.
The folks at Redstate end with this good advice:

I think we should take Terry up on his suggestions and make sure everyone knows that George Bush won the debate. Thanks Terry for making it easy on us to get in contact with folks. Just like in 2000 and 2002, we probably couldn’t have done it without you!

The National Review Kerry Roundup…

September 30, 2004

Jim Geraghty rates him as a Terror Warrior. He says his “War on Terror” speech was:

… a string of logical fallacies, half-truths, and smart-sounding criticisms followed by generic, vague pledges to do better.

Ouch! Read the whole thing.

Myrna Blyth, former long-time editor of Ladies Home Journal, points out that Kerry is losing women voters.
Not a good thing for a democrat.

Jonah Goldberg points out how Kerry is downright Nixonian… Here is a highlight:

The most Nixonian of Kerry’s traits is his obsession with secrecy and conspiracies. In August, Kerry announced he had a secret plan to get America out of Iraq. When George Stephanopoulos said it sounded like Nixon’s secret plan, Kerry responded with Nixonian combativeness: “I don’t care what it sounds like. It’s truth. I don’t care what it sounds like.”

OK, fine. But at the same time, Kerry has accused Bush of having more secret plans than SPECTRE from the James Bond movies. As the blogger Slings and Arrows has documented, Kerry has accused Bush of having secret plans to privatize Social Security, slash social services, wage nuclear war, fix oil prices at the Saudis’ behest, cut VA Benefits, cut education funding, send jobs abroad, and, of course, bring back the draft. On Monday the Associated Press reported, “John Kerry told voters in America’s Dairyland…that President Bush had a secret plan that would hurt milk producers after the election.”

Kate O’Beirne reminds us what most Vietnam Vets think of John Kerry.

Brian Riedl reminds us that John Kerry never met a tax hike he didn’t vote for.

Hollywood Premiere of Michael Moore Hates America

September 29, 2004

Via Moxie:

“Hollywood, Calif., September 22, 2004/PRNewswire/ The hotly anticipated documentary, “Michael Moore Hates America” will make its’ Hollywood premiere on Thursday, September 30 at 8p.m. at the Writer’s Guild of America theatre, with its red carpet rolled out to Hollywood’s elite celebrities in support of uncensored media and freedom of speech in America.”

“[Victor] Elizalde is supportive of the documentary, and says “the movie will do to Michael Moore and Fahrenheit 9/11, what the bloggers have done to CBS and Dan Rather and America deserves to hear the truth.”

More proof that it is the democrats who want the draft reinstated.

September 29, 2004

From the, ahem, Horse’s Mouth! Sayanything blog points out Kerry’s stance! From the Kerry site (don’t bother looking for it now…they Kosed it.)

Part of 100 days Plan to Enlist One Million Americans in National Service A Year

On September 11th, 2001, America experienced the most terrible and deadly attack in its history. John Kerry believes we need to think big and do better and get more young Americans serving the nation.

As part of his 100 day plan to change America, John Kerry will propose a comprehensive service plan that includes requiring mandatory service for high school students and four years of college tuition in exchange for two years of national service.

Ya, ya, he might be talking about Amer-corps, but has Kerry explained where he plans on getting the 40,000 active duty military he plans on adding?

The Fear Mongering continues…

September 29, 2004

I posted last week that the democrats were trying to restart the draft and blaming the Republicans.

Leslie Bates points out that no sane member of the military wants this.
Of course, Dan Rather is beating this drum like the democrat shill he is.

If you have to give them direction…

…it’s probably not a documentary.

Let’s not forget what Ray Bradbury has to say about Michael Moore.
