I think Kerry will be back up. It's going to be close but I still think Kerry will win.
What about Bush playing the card to the tune of no terrorist attacks on our soil since 9/11? The closer the election the more it makes sense for him to play it. The likely hood of an attack before the election goes down and if he's down in the polls then it really won't matter if there is an attack (at least as far as Bush’s election chances go). In addition, if there's an attack after the election it will not affect who is president either (unless of course it's an assassination).After all, protecting us from internal and external really is the president’s primary job.
Has anyone seen the newest ad? There's no mention of the whole medals controversy. Instead, its just quotes from Kerry's senate testimony about war crimes and atrocities in Vietnam, in his own voice. Then some vets talk about how betrayed they felt by this, etc. Its pretty harsh, but I guess no one can complain about the swift boat people making stuff up this time
I stand with Bush on this. The Democrats didn't give a damn when the 527's were going to town on Bush, then it was freedom of speech or whatnot. But then, when it happens to them, they go crying about how unfair it is.Bush has taken the appropriate response. He has stayed above the fray, refusing to comment on the Kerry ad, and saying he feels Kerry served honorably. Yet, he's calling for Kerry to stand with him on calling for an end to the 527's entirely, which Kerry refuses to do. Bush has taken the right stance. Kerry's stance has been opportunistic. Of course, Bush is benefitting from all this... the grand irony is that he's been calling from the beginning to end the very thing that he's now getting a boost from! If Kerry really wants this stuff to be brought to an end, he should not play a double standard when it comes to Bush. Either end it all or don't condemn any of it.ZAP

as usual, your grasp of the facts is significantly deficient. first, of all the ads run against bush, only one stepped over the line by making personal accusations
Ignorant and uninformed... I guess if we don't get all our news directly from the Democratic party line and press releases (not to mention Michael Moore), we'd all fall into that category here. I also notice that you've failed to address some very significant points made by coloroflaw, and have instead resorted to namecalling.
Please don't start with your superioristic liberal attitude again. You really like to present your liberal opinions as unslanted facts, don't you?
Until you stop doing that, and stop putting your spin on everything while calling it objective fact, I can justify henceforth completely ignoring your posts. Besides, with you everything gets personal. You've stepped over that line time and time again (not only with me, but with others as well), and I'm insulted by it. I just don't need your negativity, and no one else does either.
People like you are the reason Bush will win the election. Mainstream America, which is not packed with angry conspiracy theorists, has a hard time swallowing the kind of anger-mongering your type are up to. And we have a hard time buying your facts as well, since they're usually so contrary to what our own eyes tell us.
