John kerry for president


Recommended Posts

The Bush campaign wrote the attached letter to the Kerry folks in response to the rally they recently had in which several “entertainers” (which, by the way, has Whoopy Goldberg proven herself entertaining during my lifetime???) made distasteful comments, to say the least, about the president.  Personally, I think it’s about time that the democrats start showing some respect for the office of the president, if not the actual sitting president.  And what about some actual constructive debate?  Where are the challenges to actual policy decisions and proposals?  It seems like all I am hearing is a bunch of baseless and purely hateful speech directed at the president himself.  I would like to hear about what the presidential-hopeful and his partner will do if they’re elected.  

 

They criticize the war in Iraq, although they voted for it.  While they call the war wrong and point to civilian casualties, they call for troop escalations and enlarging the military, although Kerry’s record shows how he has preferred to cut the military every chance he gets.  They now say that the president “f***ed … up” (Kerry, Rolling Stone Interview) the war, but they refuse to say what they would do differently other than hand more power over to the UN.  Is this the same UN that calls Israel’s security wall, which has cut down the number of Palestinian suicide attacks by 90%, illegal?  Is it the same UN that is found to have been taking part in illegal and unethical behavior regarding the Oil for Food program?  The same UN that wants nothing to do with Iraq, despite passing resolution after resolution to try to reprimand Saddam Hussein?  I prefer to have a president, elected by the people of this country, that acts within the boundaries set forth under the Constitution of this country and the War Powers Resolution of 1973, that will make decisions as to the security of the United States, as opposed to leaving it up to the UN, which gives veto power to a socialist state (France… look at their government…c’mon… they’re not capitalists!), a former communist state (Russia), and a communist state (China).  Not to mention the fact the latter two countries continue to have nuclear missiles pointed at us, which tells me that the security of this country is not high on their priority list!

 

International support sounds good in commercials and on TV shows… it evokes a lot of happy thoughts and visions of world leaders skipping along hand-in-hand in fields of marigolds and sunflowers singing the soundtrack to “The Sound of Music.”  But, it sure as heck isn’t practical or pragmatic… nor is it worth a thing!  At the end of the day, the security of this country should be left up to the people of this country, not the people across the pond.

Dear Ms. Cahill:

 

On Thursday your campaign hosted a fundraiser at Radio City Music Hall at which Sen. Kerry said, "Every performer tonight in their own way either verbally through their music through their lyrics have conveyed to you the heart and soul of our country."  

 

I called on your campaign to release the performance that Sen. Kerry said represented the "heart and soul" of America so that all Americans could see for themselves what John Kerry thinks represents the "heart and soul" of our country.  

 

Do most Americans in their hearts, think that calling the President a "thug" and a "killer" represents the "heart and soul" of our nation?  We don't think so, but we think voters should decide for themselves by watching the celebrities John Kerry said captured the "heart and soul" of America.

 

Your Senior Advisor Tad Devine said that you believed that releasing musical performances "might violate copyrights and licensing agreements for the entertainers who performed and allow the Bush campaign to use the tape in commercials against Kerry and Edwards"  

 

I have been assured that "fair use" rules of copyright would allow you to release the tapes of these musical performances to the news media under 2 U.S.C. 107.  To allay the other concern you relayed to the news media, Bush-Cheney '04 pledges to refrain from using audio, video or transcripts of the event for any television, cable, satellite or radio advertising.  We look forward to seeing this spirited display.

 

Sincerely,

 

Ken Mehlman

Campaign Manager

Im not putting a Bush sticker on my chief. Or a Kerry sticker.   While Kerry might not be the one neither is Bush.  Are you going to lose you overtime pay?                   no overtime pay

I have seen the light. After all, the AFL/CIO is the least politically biased organization I've ever run across.[/sarcasm]

WASHINGTON, July 13 /U.S. Newswire/ -- Kerry-Edwards campaign manager Mary Beth Cahill today sent the following letter to Bush Cheney '04 Campaign Manager Ken Mehlman in response to a letter Mehlman sent yesterday:

 

July 13, 2004

 

Ken Mehlman

 

Campaign Manager

 

BUSH-CHENEY '04, Inc.

 

P.O. BOX 10648

 

Arlington, VA 22210

 

Dear Ken:

 

Over the past several months, allies of the President have questioned John Kerry's patriotism while your staff has criticized his service in Vietnam. Republicans and their allies have gone so far as to launch attacks against his wife and your campaign has run $80 million in negative ads that have been called baseless, misleading and unfair by several independent observers.

 

Considering that the President has failed to even come close to keeping his promise to change the tone in Washington, we find your outrage over and paparazzi-like obsession with a fund- raising event to be misplaced. The fact is that the nation has a greater interest in seeing several documents made public relating to the President's performance in office and personal veracity that the White House has steadfastly refused to release. As such, we will not consider your request until the Bush campaign and White House make public the documents/materials listed below:

 

-- Military records: Any copies of the President's military records that would actually prove he fulfilled the terms of his military service. For that matter, it would be comforting to the American people if the campaign or the White House could produce more than just a single person to verify that the President was in Alabama when said he was there. Many Americans find it odd that only one person out of an entire squadron can recall seeing Mr. Bush.

 

-- Halliburton: All correspondence between the Defense Department and the White House regarding the no-bid contracts that have gone to the Vice-President's former company. Some material has already been made public. Why not take a campaign issue off the table by making all of these materials public so the voters can see how Halliburton has benefited from Mr. Cheney serving as Vice-President?

 

-- The Cheney Energy Task Force: For an Administration that claims to hate lawsuits, it's ironic that the Bush White House is taking up the Courts' time to keep the fact that Ken Lay and Enron wrote its energy policy in secret behind closed doors. Please release the documents so that the country can learn what lobbyists and special interests wrote the White House energy policy.

 

-- Medicare Bill: Please release all White House correspondence between the pharmaceutical industry and the Administration regarding the Medicare Bill, which gave billions to some of the President's biggest donors. In addition, please provide all written materials that directed the Medicare actuary to withhold information from Congress about the actual cost of the bill.

 

-- Prison Abuse Documents: A few weeks ago, the White House released a selected number of documents regarding the White House's involvement in laying the legal foundation for the interrogation methods that were used in Iraq. Please release the remaining documents.

 

We also wanted to wish you a happy anniversary. As we are sure you and the attorneys representing the President, Vice- President and other White House officials are aware, today marks one year since Administration sources leaked the identity of a covert CIA agent to Bob Novak in an effort to retaliate against a critic of the Administration.

 

In light of the fact that the Administration began gutting the laws protecting the nation's forests yesterday, we hope you will accept the paper on which this letter is written as an anniversary gift. (The one year anniversary is known as the "paper anniversary.")

 

Sincerely,

 

Mary Beth Cahill

Well unfortunatly this election is going to come down to one thing and that is do you want Bush for another 4 years or not. My personal view is NOT If you go by stats Bush has by far the worst stats of the last 4 presidents and Clenton had the best. I think everyone needs to look at their current situations and ask theirselves if they can survive another 4 years. Alot of jobs have been lost and it wasnt just because of 9/11 alot of companys took advantage of 9/11 and the jobs that are being created are low income jobs, My homeowners insurance had went up 33% last year, Car insurance 26% gas prices are up 25% groceries up 17% and my cost of living increase was 5% now it doesnt take a rocket scientist to see where this is going and thats just a few of the items not including electricity increases and Water etc... OK theirs my 2 cents worth.

Main thing is be involved and get out and vote! No matter what your 2 cents worth is

I'm not sure where you get your numbers from, and maybe you are in an area which has had increases above the average, but the facts/stats are available and they DO NOT reflect what you represented in your posting.

 

Yes, I agree, everone should getout and vote AND please, don't get sucked into short emotion based quips and quotes.  

 

 

Statistical facts regarding cost of living are here......

U.S. Department of Labor - CPI statistics

 

Now, I suppose someone is going to tell me 'Bush' has somehow rigged this to.

Clinton was not the best at ANYTHING but lying to our faces on National TV. How can yopu even make this ludacris statement regarding an impeached President. No president will be perfect to ALL of us but,President Bush at least does what he says and I kind of like a guy  who is passionate about something and never wavers from his moral convictions right or wrong. This is an admirable character trait imho and one that will get my vote AGAIN in 2004 :bvictory:  :bvictory:  :bvictory:  :bvictory:

I dont know about you guys but this has (Financially) been the best last couple of years I have ever had! Clinton gave me nothing , I paid more taxes then , the economy is booming , the naysayers are full of shit, people are on a buying spree like never before! If they didnt have the money they wouldnt be buying! Granted some assholes are spending the banks money (credit cards) , but for the most part spending is up !

 

Bush all the way , I dont care if he fucked up on his Intel , Clinton fucked up on intel so many times it was pathetic , and the media whitewashed it every time!

 

Wheres trog, goddamn it , we need to here the commies er,uh liberal democrats point of view! Im sick of hearing Michael Moores position what a waste of sperm !

Let me reword this.. the numbers I got were from an MSNBc statistic I wasnt nessesarily meaning Clinton was the best but the stats were better during his 4 years not meaning it was all due to him as in the same token not saying all that went wrong in the last 4 years were totally due to Bush there is always overlay from previous administrations. I wish I could find the artical that MSNBC had posted as far as stats during the last 4 presidencies it listed basically employment, foreign affairs, GDP and all the other ones I will try and find the artical, if nothing else it makes for interesting reading, As far as Insurance, groceries those maybe just a reflection of the area I live thats why  I said everyone needs to look at their current situations and I never said Clinton was the best I said he had the best record during his 4 year of Presidentcy and doesnt mean it was all due to his actions. I think the study mentioned Clinton, Reagan, Daddy Bush and Bush in that order. Hope this clearified my earlier post guess I should have proof read it for wording

MSNBC is a liberal owned media outlet where you cannot find any news that has not been tainted to meet there current agenda. I know you are good peeps Jaycox and I really do not think that you will vote for Kerry but even if ya do you will still be alright in my book just a little confused he he he.

 

I want some more Bush in 2004. Dont we all want a little more Bush??? ???
