Mr. Hogberg’s article indicates why conservatives should take heart about the current campaign. While the media and the extremists have been savaging Bush since the day he took office, Bush and Kerry today are merely tied in many polls, even after 6 months of relentlessly negative press about the President. This shows how weak Kerry really is.
The Bushies know that their campaign needs to publicize a cohesive anti-Kerry message for only one month before the election, when most uncommitted voters are making a decision. It will be a surgical and effective counterstrike because there is so very much ammunition, particularly in Kerry’s lifelong ties to extremism in every form, starting with his attacks on the American military after his 4 months of service in Vietnam.p>Bush will win on the quiet choices made by millions of swing voters in the final stage of the campaign. br> — Steve Nikitas br> Pittsfield, Massachusetts /p>
David Hogberg’s article “Bush Spotlights Extremists” captures the leftwards tilt of the Kerry Campaign. However, David seems to feel that the Bush campaign has not aggressively attacked enough on Kerry’s liberal bent. I feel the Bush team is using their playbook as they always have, “By giving a man enough rope to hang himself.”
Remember the debates with Al Gore. Bush was supposed to be a moron, could not speak, didn’t have a chance. The debates were declared a formality. The bar was lowered to such a point that George Bush looked like a genius and Al Gore never recovered.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
