So, I'm suffering from bronchitis right now but I thought I'd give one last ditch effort for the Kerry campaign.
I know some of you are still on the fence and I understand that. If you don't feel Kerry is the better man for the job, don't vote for him. But don't vote for Bush either.
What exactly has Bush done for you lately? Seriously.
His biggest campaign issue is National Security. If you believe Bush really makes America safer, check out Richard Clark's book AGAINST ALL ENEMIES. Richard Clark is nonpartison. He was the terrorism czar under Bush and worked under every White House president since Reagan. 9/11 happened on Bush's watch and for good reason. He and his staff chose to ignore repeated warnings from intelligence and refused to spend any money to set up the National Security office that Clinton's administration had left plans for. Now, he talks all about this new Homeland Security thing he set up. He had the opportunity to do that BEFORE 9/11 and did not. In retrospect, it seems pretty piss poor.
His domestic policies are so bad that many Republicans are switching parties. Yes, Bush gave most of us $300 but in the long run, does that really help? By doing that insignificant tax cut, he was forced to cut many valuable programs. And even though he got things like No Child Left Behind passed, he allocated no money for the programs.
He ran Texas into the ground as governor and now he is doing the same to our country. Isn't it time for a change?
