I don't recall this splashed all over the
mainstream media! Kerry's hometown
paper endorses President Bush

This is just fascinating. Senator Kerry's own hometown
paper in Massachusetts, a traditional Democratic town,
has not only endorsed President Bush, but a ringing
endorsement, and quite harsh against Kerry.

Most of you know what a big deal the mainstream media
made of the Bush hometown newspaper endorsement of
Kerry. The Iconoclast of Crawford, Texas with 400 +. Well
just in case you missed it, here is a real big endorsement
from Lowell, MA which is somewhere in the vicinity of
220,000. This is a scathing editorial to say the least.

Where is the main stream media on this one? I must have
missed the "Rather report" (AKA the "Rather not" report).

Lowell Sun

Endorsement: George W. Bush for president

Sunday, October 03, 2004 - It's about national security.

That's the key issue on the minds of Americans
planning to vote in the Nov. 2 presidential election.

They must decide whether Republican President George
W. Bush or Sen. John F. Kerry, a Democrat, can provide
the leadership to safeguard America from foreign terrorism.

Americans aren't fools. They know that without safe cities
and towns, America will lose its greatness. Our cherished
freedoms and sacred liberties will be diminished, along with
our opportunities for economic prosperity and our basic
pursuit of happiness.

Our children and their children will live vastly different lives
if we fail to guarantee a future free of turmoil.

Islamic extremists, both here and abroad, have one purpose:
To destroy America and halt the spread of democracy and
religious tolerance around the globe.

They'd like to be plotting in our streets right now. They'd like
to be sowing murder and mayhem with suicide bombers and
hostage-takings, and spreading fear in the heartland and
everywhere else. They'd like to be wearing us down and
bringing our nation to its knees.

Since the devastating terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, one
American leader has maintained an unbending resolve to
protect our homeland and interest against Islamic savages
and those foreign governments appeasing them.

That leader is President Bush.

While out-of-touch U.S. politicians and world leaders have
attacked President Bush's tactics, they can't question his
steely commitment to keep America safe.

In the ashes of ground zero, where nearly 3,000 innocent
Americans perished, President Bush vowed to find the
perpetrators, in domestic cells and distant lands, and bring
them to justice. He said he will do all that is humanly possible
and necessary to make certain that terrorists never strike
again on U.S. soil.

Can anyone deny that President Bush has not delivered?
America the terrorists' No. 1 target has recovered from its
tragic wounds and rebounded. It remains safe to this day.

What might a lesser leader have done, faced with the daunting
task of deciding America's course against withering, partisan
attacks from Democrats, media propagandists, disingenuous
U.N. officials and disloyal White House operatives selling their
souls for profit during a time of war?

A lesser leader might have caved in. President Bush has
stood his ground.

In this year's election, the question isn't whether we are safer
now than we were four years ago. We already know the answer.
Sure we are and that's because of President Bush. The critical
question is: Four years from now, will America be safer than
it is today?

In our book, Americans have to place their trust in President
Bush. He's proven to be as sturdy as a mighty oak when it
comes to saying what he means, meaning what he says and
acting decisively.

When it comes to the war on terror, President Bush means to
keep our military strong and our country secure.

John Kerry, on the other hand, has all the attributes of the
shape of water when it comes to telling us what he believes
and what he'd do for America. Like incoming and outgoing
tides, Kerry is content to go with the flow. In a dangerous
world infested with sharks, Kerry would be chum at
America's expense.

We in Massachusetts know John Kerry. He got his first taste
of politics 32 years ago in the cities and towns of Greater Lowell.

In his 20 years in the U.S. Senate, Kerry, a Navy war hero,
hasn't risen above the rank of seaman for his uninspiring
legislative record. He's been inconsistent on major issues.
First he's for the 1991 Persian Gulf War, then he opposes it.
First he's for the war in Iraq, then he's against it. First he's
for a strong U.S. defense, then he votes against military
weapons programs. First he's for the U.S. Patriot Act, then
he opposes it.

Kerry's solution to stop terrorism? He'd go to the U.N. and
build a consensus. How naive. France's Jacques Chirac,
Germany's Gerhard Schroeder, U.N. Secretary General
Kofi Annan and other Iraq oil-for-food scam artists don't
want America to succeed. They want us brought down to
their level. And more and more, Kerry sounds just like
them. In a recent campaign speech, Kerry said America
was in the wrong war, in the wrong place, at the wrong
time.

No doubt John Kerry sincerely wants to serve his country,
but we believe he's the wrong man, in the wrong place,
at the wrong time.

Americans should think back three years ago to the
smoldering ruins of the World Trade Center. There a
mong the mist lay the images and memories of fallen
firefighters, police, a Catholic chaplain and ordinary
working citizens moms, dads, sons, daughters.

President Bush, through heartfelt tears, told us never
to forget the twisted carnage and the massacre of the
innocents. Yet some of us are forgetting.

President Bush told us the attacks must never happen
again. Yet some of us are wavering because of the
brave sacrifice of soldiers that our nation's security
demands.

Well, President Bush hasn't forgotten. Nor has he lost
the courage and conviction to do what is right for
America.

We know if there is one thing the enemy fears above
all else, it is that George Bush's iron will is stronger
than his iron won't.

The Sun proudly endorses the re-election of President
George W. Bush

This is awesome - I am one of those poor hapless bastards stationed in Massachusetts (vote in Maine) surrounded by liberals........I would LOVE to see Bush win the state.

Don't get too giddy. One of the local papers in Crawford endorsed Kerry. Go figure.

Good on the boyz over at the Sun. Problem is that most of Massachusetts voters are a bunch of flaming libs living in Beantown.

Very well written endorsement.

I seriously doubt that they are going to come to their senses and vote for Bush. Would be nice though...

Just a side not - I have seen a lot of "Cape Codders for Bush" bumper stickers - and now I see about as many Bush stickers as Kerry ones while travelling on the road - I remember when I was about the only one with a Bush sticker on my truck. The unions here heavily support Kerry - as if thats any surprise. They'd vote for Mickey Mouse if they thought he would "help" the union.
