America is witnessing the most vicious presidential election in modern

Kitty Kelley's nasty smear, forged military records and Michael
Moore's cinematic hit job – the Democrats are sinking to new lows
every day to defeat George W. Bush.

Story Continues Below

Recently I chatted with Martin Anderson, my friend from the Hoover
Institution and a close aide to Presidents Nixon and Reagan. Martin
has advised every Republican president in modern times, including
George W. Bush.

During our conversation I recalled when electioneering used to begin
on Labor Day and didn¹t take off in earnest until October.

Those days are gone, perhaps forever.

"You have to go back to the founding of the country, when candidates
had duels, to find some parallel," Anderson said of the animus this
campaign season has seen.

We discussed the reasons behind this political civil war. To Anderson
the answer is obvious: The Democrats are desperate.

How desperate? Very.

As Anderson sees it, the Democrats are almost completely out of power.

He reviewed the political landscape for me.

The White House is Republican. And so are the Senate and the House.
Even the Supreme Court predominates with Republican appointments.

At the state level it gets worse. In the last election cycle, a
majority of state legislatures became Republican, and Republicans hold
a majority of state governorships.

The largest four states in population have Republican governors:
George Pataki in New York, Rick Perry in Texas, Jeb Bush in Florida –*
and we even snatched one from the Democrats in California with Arnold
Schwarzenegger's election.

"We don¹t realize how good we have it," Anderson suggested.

His analysis is unassailable per the known facts. Almost everywhere
there has been a rising Republican tide.

So the Democrats, who have won previous elections using government
largesse, do not control the very levers of government they need to
buy off their constituencies.

The Democratic Party has made the White House central to its quest to
regain power.

To that end, they are throwing everything they can at President Bush,
including the kitchen sink.

According to Democratic Verse, Bush is guilty of every major sin. To

Michael Moore he is a warmonger and a toady of the Saudis. To Maureen
Dowd he is a toady of the neocons. To Teddy Kennedy he is a bigger
liar than Richard Nixon. John Dean and Sen. Bob Graham would like to
see him impeached. MoveOn has compared Bush to Hitler. Democratic
left-wing financier George Soros depicts Bush as a sort of Antichrist
as well. (Surprisingly, the two leading Democrats who have engaged
Bush with civility are Sens. Joe Lieberman and Hillary Clinton.)

Clearly, the Democrats view 2004 as the Armageddon election. If the
Republicans win again, it could lead to an era of Republican dominance
for a generation to come.

As NewsMax has chronicled, the major media, long the handmaidens of
the Democratic Party, have also shown the same signs of desperation.
The liberal media establishment has all but endorsed Kerry.

In addition to big media, big money is also going to Kerry.

Billionaires such as George Soros, Peter Lewis, Ron Burkle and Stephen
Bing are backing Kerry, and they are putting their money on the table.

Even Kerry's campaign, which was almost insolvent by the time he won
in Iowa, has come from behind to match or exceed Bush¹s $200 million
war chest.

My back-of-the-envelope accounting shows that the 'poor' Democrats
will outspend the 'rich' Republicans by a factor of 2 to 1 or more.

Here's the rough calculation: Democratic 527s will raise more than
$150 million over what Republican 527s raise. Add to that figure
another $150 million the major unions have already committed to help
Kerry get out the vote. That's $300 million cash flow for Kerry.

True, Bush's incumbency brings with it tremendous power and perks, but
the No. 1 factor usually determining re-election for a sitting
president is the economy.

And the economy continues to accelerate, albeit in a sputtering way.

High gasoline prices, which began to rocket upward at the end of last
year and have shown little signs of abating, have stalled Bush's
economic recovery and choked his re-election.

Even if gasoline prices fall, it is too late to quickly rev up the
economy for this November's election.

Between now and then President Bush needs to make his case directly to
the American people and explain why the economy may be stalling, or
it's he who will face his last battle in this election Armageddon.
Well fellow hogs don't count yourselves out yet. If the first order number was 25??? and I had 29 and 31, then 25 + 28 - 1 = 52. So, if your number is less than 50 you probably have a good chance. Except maybe the Skunk bought 10:grumpy: Also, Jerry confirmed my monkey order too and I haven't seen any chimps or gorillas arrive yet.

As for politics, I live in Commiefornia and am surrounded by leftists. This is Alamo territory and I need more Busses to defend the Mission. I already voted absentee but I know I will end up on the losing side. You guys in "battleground" states don't forget to vote tomorrow or you"ll end up like Commiefornia someday soon.
We, of the unconfirmed, hope you're right George. :)
I am in!!! :D :cool: :D I am number 36, so I guess anyone below that is in for sure. And thanks for the e-mail Jerry, it made my day! :cool:
Just got an email from Jerry saying I'm in. :D Two Busses in two weeks! My wife is on the warpath. :D :D :D
Has anyone with an order# greater than #36 gotten a confirmation yet?
I had to call Busseland for another reason but I confirmed I'm on the list so it looks good for numbers before 45 :D :D
I used a "secret" link Skunk gave me and 17 cases of Dixie Cups just arrived from EUrope.

Yahoo!!! Hope the sweetness comes to Papa soon
Mine is gonna head down to AZ to get some plastic pants, and then head up to Canada in time to wait under my tree untill the 25th. :D
