Javierdude22: I thought it might be a good idea to have a general campaign 2004 thread. All commenst, remarks, opinions on anything all very welcome. I am not an American citizen, although more and more, especially during the Dubya years, I have felt like a constituent since most decisions in the US seemed to affect my everyday life. And I dont like that. Well, only if it is affected in a positive way, which I cannot recall. So, I seriously hope Kerry will win the race. Although I am worried that he might not, as I heard this morning that Ralph Nader, again, will run. Can you be more self centured? I thought 4 years of Bush would have taught him. But no... About the first week of the Bush campaign. I think his 9/11 ad is tacky, misplaced, and undeserved (although he thinks differently). He said he had the quote -right- the use the iamges of 9/11 cause of all the wonderful things Bush did for it. I dont get that. What wonderful things, what does he mean by that? Does he mean the fight against the taliban (still not won, once US leaves, taliban rules again, ask the Russians). Does he mean his fight against Al Qaida? (Osama, where art thou Osama?). Or maybe Iraq? (ill keep that as a pending issue). Ok, so maybe he does mean all of that, but then, wouldnt you show images of the work you do in those countries, instead of those horryfying images of 9/11?! To me this means we have a president that would rather strike fear into peoples hearts than show the solution. And that is what his campaign is about, Fear with a big F. Ive got a better ad for his campaign. It starts off pretty much the same as his, but I think he left out the secodn part. Its in Spanish alas, its called -faces of terror- http://ee.1asphost.com/dinkplus/Las_caras_del_terror.pps On a sidenote: has anybody noticed the smirk on Bush face everytime he finishes a sentence (ya know, when the machine calls for the crowd to applaud). Today on CNN: Bush preaching in front of the choir: Kerry has very strong opinions....(3 second pause to read next sentence)...too bad he changes them all the time...(smirk begins with a sequential subtle nod of the head)...(crowd laughs diligently)...(smirk climaxes as he realises it worked)... Oh well..
