Gore won NM and its 5 votes in 2000: Bush currently leads by around 3 points

Gore won WI and its 10 votes in 2000: Bush currently leads by around 10 points

Gore won ME and its 4 votes in 2000 by over 5 points: Bush curently leads by around 1 point

Gore won MD and its 10 votes in 2000 by over 16 points!: Bush and kerry are polling at a tie

Gore won IW and its 7 votes in 2000: Bush currently leads by around 2 points

Gore won OR and its 7 votes in 2000: Bush and kerry are currently polling neck and neck

Gore won NJ and its 15 votes in 2000 by over 15 points: Bush and kerry are polling neck and neck

Gore won PA and its 21 votes in 2000 by over 4 points: Bush and kerry are polling neck and neck


that's 79 Gore votes (out of 270 needed to win) that are up for grabs!

if President Bush can take half of those and hold his 2000 states, which it looks like he will, it will be a landslide

Even with Bush looking good we need to work hard for the President and on local issues.......


In Washington State I am working on:


Dino Rossi (R) for Govenor, we have had a democrat in office in Washington for so long, this is a hard battle but he is only a few points down.

Dave Reichart (R) for US Congress 8th district--He is battling local radio host Dave Ross(D) for Jennifer Dunn(R)'s vacant seat, we need to retain this one.

George Nethercutt(R) is fighting incumbent GUN GRABBER Patty Murray (D) for a US Senator's seat, we need this one locally and nationally.

These are a few of our local battles....keep up the fight, the sunsetting of the AWB is proof that WE here can make a huge difference.

That would be fantastic! It would sure get rid of an awful lot of Hollyweird "flotscum and jetscum" from this country. If the libs would leave, or at least a big share, this country could possible have a chance of getting back on track. Better get back to reality big guy...slaps self... I'm ok now.

God bless you. It's critical that we don't make the same mistakes we made when conservative's felt there was no way Bush 41 could lose to 'Slick Willy'.

I've purchased a number of yard signs and bumper stickers from www.GeorgeWBush.com and am passing them to my friends, family and co-workers.

We lived through 8 years of Clinton (higher taxes, gun ban, Al Quada, etc) Let's not take this one for granted.

OK Guyz! I AGREE, it's looking VERY good for the President.

That said, DON'T FORGET TO VOTE! Take NOTHING for granted...for LOTS of reasons, not the least of which happens to be the lengths the crazy desperate Democrats will go to to win. Y'all know what I mean...especially you folks up in Ohio, Chicago, St. Louis and down in West Palm Beach.

Don't think for ONE second that the Democrats' lawyer teams aren't already saddled up, hot briefs in hand ready to do battle.

Bush futures hitting $.74! Outstanding. At this point in '96 Clinton was at about $.85, and he killed Dole in an Electoral landslide. Signs are looking good.

Might not be a bad idea. The MSM is going to spin the outcome of the debate on Thursday in favor of Kerry, might shake out the weak hands on the bush side, or be an excuse for profit-taking.

On my free presidential trading account, I sold Bush and bought Kerry on this hypothesis.

Surge Protector
As you watch the debate on Thursday night, remember: No matter what happens, on Friday morning, you're going to hear that the race is tightening.

by Mike Murphy
09/28/2004 11:45:00 AM

A SURE BET in this campaign is that the media will write a big October comeback story for John Kerry. It is evitable for three reasons. First, the media works in a pack that is happiest when following a simple narrative. Second, from moribund to miracle campaigner is Kerry's tiresome myth turned worn-out cliché. Third, this is indeed a tight race and--as with any incumbent seeking reelection--the undecided vote will break heavily against Bush, which will make Kerry look like he is surging late. (Even hapless Michael Dukakis had such a late surge.)

The signs of this pending storyline are already apparent in the coverage of Kerry's new team of savvy advisors. Their decision to bet the entire Kerry campaign on a debate over the Iraq war--a strategic suicide note in my view--is the required "big move" such stories demand and is being applauded as a masterstroke. This is where narrative and reality truly differ. If President Bush wins this campaign, the decision to focus the entire Kerry campaign on a debate over the war, instead of on domestic issues, will be a key ingredient to the president's success. Kerry's mistake is that it is impossible to have a serious campaign-winning political victory over the administration without a serious policy difference between the two. Howard Dean had a policy difference with the Bush administration on Iraq; Kerry essentially does not.

All his squirming and wiggling aside, Kerry essentially supported the war. Quibbling over details and promising to deliver a world where large French
and German forces cheerfully deploy to Iraq and take daily causalities in the place of American troops is campaign silly talk, best reserved for audiences of party regulars with already made up minds and the trained seal's ability to happily applaud even the most shameless and imbecilic arguments. It won't wash in a serious debate on a foreign war, which is the campaign battlefield Kerry has foolishly chosen. Kerry's cynicism masked as honesty will undo him. Worse yet, Kerry's decision to rhetorically slide into the cheap seats at the United Nations last week and--along with the various aid thieves, despot mouthpieces and Kofi worshippers of the Blame America chorus--raspberry the United States will return to haunt him. Kerry doesn't just want to re-live Vietnam in his biography; he seems to want to re-experience the 1972 Nixon-McGovern race.

The media's Kerry comeback will unfold in earnest after this Thursday's debate. What actually happens in the debate, barring a highly entertaining Tourette's style meltdown by one of the candidates, really doesn't matter. This is the first campaign debate in George W. Bush's career where he has entered with performance expectations, a troubling burden. While I expect the president will actually do well, that expectations game and the comeback narrative will combine, through the media's funhouse mirror, to put Kerry back in the race. Even though it may ultimately be simply an optical illusion.
